The week of August 24

Brewer's Picks
Last Season
154-31 (.832)

Brewer vs. Keefer

Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and
Case Keefer attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.

Keefer's Picks
Last Season
150-35 (.810)

Chey-town is my favorite to win the Division 1-A crown.
Cheyenne 32, Desert Pines 20

Behind the considerable wheels of Myloe Lewis and Devin Tatum, the Desert Shields have a shot at a memorable season.
Cheyenne 24, Desert Pines 16

Clark learns how tough it is traveling out of Vegas.
Virgin Valley 23, Clark 6

The Bulldogs have twice as many starters returning as the Chargers.
Virgin Valley 34, Clark 20

Faith Lutheran shows it is improved, but still comes up short.
Lutheran 29, Faith Lutheran 26

Faith Lutheran
Lutheran (Colo.)

Lions only lost one game last season.
Lutheran 30, Faith Lutheran 14

Mojave has too much speed for BC to contain.
Mojave 19, Boulder City 15

Can’t pick against an improved Rattlers team that won in Boulder City last year, though this is the most competitive matchup of the first week.
Mojave 28, Boulder City 24

Sunrise Mountain wins its first game. EVER.
Sunrise Mountain 25, Western 16

This could go either way, so I’ll oppose Brewer to make it interesting.
Western 15, Sunrise Mountain 14

Won’t pick against my Cowboys in this one.
Chaparral 31, Sierra Vista 26

Mountain Lions could be sleepers in the new Sunset Northwest.
Sierra Vista 30, Chaparral 17

Utah school is too much for Shadow Ridge.
Snow Canyon 35, Shadow Ridge 7

Seems like Snow Canyon beats up on a Nevada team once or twice every season.
Snow Canyon 42, Shadow Ridge 13

Conner Mortensen is one of the best players in Division 1-A.
Moapa Valley 38, Pahrump Valley 6

Trojans will find it difficult to move the ball against the Pirates, a team eager to even its record.
Moapa Valley 30, Pahrump Valley 6

Tough to travel across the country for high school players.
Gorman 34, Our Lady 19

After looking over the roster, I’m changing my pick from what I said on the podcast. Falcons are too much.
Our Lady 24, Gorman 21
