Keefer's Picks
Last Season

Wildcats make statement with lopsided win.
Las Vegas 42, Cimarron 7

Cimarron hasn't given up 42 points in three years, so it's a little closer.
Las Vegas 28, Cimarron 14

Wolf Pack wins another Jug Game.
Basic 32, Boulder City 13

Wolf Pack kick late field goal to keep the Jug for the 12th straight year and rip the Eagles hearts out.
Basic 24, Boulder City 21

I’m picking with Durango’s Juilio Mora every day of the week.
Durango 27, Del Sol 19

Both Brewer and I live in the Del Sol school district, at least one of us is proud of it.
Del Sol 34, Durango 21

Brandon Wright shows why he’s one of the city’s top prospects.
Palo Verde 39, Green Valley 6

Thayer Coon shows why he's one of the city's most underrated linebackers.
Palo Verde 35, Green Valley 7

Legacy’s L.J. McMorris is a star in the making.
Legacy 32, Spring Valley 15

Legacy's defense proves too much for the Grizzlies.
Legacy 13, Spring Valley 6

Upset special: I will take the athletic Vikes at home.
Valley 13, Desert Oasis 12

Get ready for the Heatley brothers, who will make Friday's game look more like a track meet.
Desert Oasis 41, Valley 16

Foothill is one of the area’s best kept secrets.
Foothill 30, Bonanza 19

Real tough game, but I'm practically the president of the DaSean Martin fan club.
Bonanza 28, Foothill 27

Shadow Ridge opens with a solid victory. .
Shadow Ridge 30, Sierra Vista 0

Shadow Ridge is getting a lot of hype for a team that went 1-8 last year, but it can have this one.
Shadow Ridge 27, Sierra Vista 20

Rancho’s junior class continues it winning ways.
Rancho 21, Arbor View 16

Arbor View hasn't lost a game outside of the Northwest in three years.
Arbor View 30, Rancho 14

Centennial gets first win in the Evans era.
Centennial 29, Clark 12

Look out for the Bulldogs bruising linebacker, Willie White.
Centennial 34, Clark 14

Desert Pines struggles away from home.
Pine View 43, Desert Pines 16

The Pine Bowl goes to the Jaguars, because Paul Bennet runs too professional of a program to let travel be a factor.
Desert Pines 26, Pine View 20

Moapa Valley is young up front, but still athletic enough to beat Utah school.
Moapa Valley 34, Desert Hills 20

Moapa Valley will have a terrific year, but the first two weeks will be tough.
Desert Hills 21, Moapa Valley 7

Virgin Valley is tough to beat in Mesquite.
Virgin Valley 23, Kanab 12

Looks like the Bulldogs are playing the Kansas City Royals and Zack Greinke can probably throw a wicked spiral.
Kanab 31, Virgin Valley 26

Bishop Gorman will bounce back behind a big game from Shaq Powell.
Bishop Gorman 31, Del Oro 12

The Gaels were noticeably rusty in their first game. No way Tony Sanchez allows that two weeks in a row.
Bishop Gorman 27, Del Oro 20
