Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
13-4

Season:
96-23

I give the Western players credit for their effort. It's noticed.
Durango 49, Western 12

A nice, easy tune-up for the Trailblazers before their two biggest games of the season.
Durango 60, Western 18

With or without Afoa in the lineup, Falcons have too many weapons.
Foothill 38, Basic 20

If Afoa doesn't play, Foothill is vulnerable but still has enough talent to win a close game.
Foothill 20, Basic 17

Liberty sharp in dress rehearsal for next week's clash with Foothill.
Liberty 42, Coronado 8

Liberty's offensive line makes it a long night for the Cougars.
Liberty 38, Coronado 10

Del Sol is too physical for an undersized Green Valley team.
Del Sol 30, Green Valley 14

Don't be surprised if Green Valley nearly pulls the upset.
Del Sol 28, Green Valley 27

Jags win fourth straight game.
Desert Pines 45, Sunrise Mountain 0

This isn't even fair.
Desert Pines 49, Sunrise Mountain 6

This defeat will hurt more than the rest for us Cowboys.
Eldorado 39, Chaparral 16

Sundevils can't afford a slip-up in rivalry game with the playoffs still in sight.
Eldorado 46, Chaparral 7

Rancho last won the Bone Game in 1995. That's a true shame.
Las Vegas 56, Rancho 13

Bold prediction of the week: Rancho will win Bone Game — sometime in the next five years.
Las Vegas 35, Rancho 16

Young Canyon Springs team catching fire thanks to weak league schedule.
Canyon Springs 44, Valley 13

How good is sophomore Donnel Pumphrey? Canyon Springs coach Hunkie Cooper calls him "the next Reggie Bush."
Canyon Springs 55, Valley 6

Clark knows a thing or two about Pahrump's 30-game losing skid.
Clark 36, Pahrump Valley 0

Forget about the losing streak, the Chargers are way past that. They are a good football team.
Clark 56, Pahrump Valley 0

This neighborhood rivalry won't be competitive.
Desert Oasis 42, Sierra Vista 0

Geographically, this could be a great rivalry. But Desert Oasis took all the talent.
Desert Oasis 48, Sierra Vista 13

Chey-town responds nicely after four-OT defeat.
Cheyenne 32, Shadow Ridge 12

A promising start to the season has turned sour for Shadow Ridge.
Cheyenne 27, Shadow Ridge 7

Cimarron knocks Arbor View from the ranks of the unbeaten.
Cimarron 17, Arbor View 14

Arbor View is brewing some magic up there. Why would it stop now?
Arbor View 28, Cimarron 24

I will take Portaro, Pearson and Lubbe against any Northwest team — except Palo.
Faith Lutheran 34, Centennial 25

Bulldogs have a dangerous weapon to combat the Crusaders — depth to keep fresh players defending the relentless aerial assault.
Centennial 30, Faith Lutheran 28

I wouldn't want to meet Legacy in the playoffs.
Legacy 40, Mojave 0

Jordan Pinkney was born to run the option.
Legacy 35, Mojave 6

Bonanza has too much offense.
Bonanza 47, Boulder City 29

Sterling Sprau could be an elite quarterback if he got a little protection.
Bonanza 63, Boulder City 12

Silverado should have no troubles with 3A Moapa Valley.
Silverado 30, Moapa Valley 12

If the Skyhawks play like they did in last week's second half, they can compete with anyone.
Silverado 40, Moapa Valley 20

Can someone please fix the 3A classification? Please.
Palo Verde (JV) 24, Virgin Valley 20

Virgin Valley caught a break in scheduling this year, except for this game. This isn't an ordinary JV team.
Palo Verde (JV) 35, Virgin Valley 20

Spring Valley handed Gorman its last league loss. It won't happen again.
Gorman 62, Spring Valley 20

Spring Valley's offense is explosive enough to put up some points against Gorman, but that's about it.
Bishop Gorman 63, Spring Valley 24
