High School Football Picks: Week 9

The week of October 25

Brewer's Picks
Last Week:

119-16 (.881)

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 Week:

108-27 (.800)

Canyon Springs has the better athletes and defense; GV the better offense. Have to score to win.
Green Valley 32, Canyon Springs 23

Gators have one too many weapons for the Pioneers.
Green Valley 26, Canyon Springs 24

Changing of the guard. Desert Pines isn’t afraid, knows it can battle with powerhouse Moapa Valley.
Desert Pines 30, Moapa Valley 27

Pirates will push the Jaguars around. Just like last year.
Moapa Valley 45, Desert Pines 20

Even with Jamal Willis, the best tailback in Bonanza history, the Bengals would struggle scoring.
Gorman 50, Bonanza 0

Bonanza gets shut out for the second straight week.
Gorman 62, Bonanza 0

It’s safe to say Legacy is one of the area’s elite teams this fall.
Legacy 45, Desert Oasis 16

That’s true — the Longhorns are better than Brewer’s No. 8 ranking.
Legacy 35, Desert Oasis 16

Does anyone remember a few years back when Valley upset Las Vegas in a complete shocker? Won’t happen this week.
Las Vegas 59, Valley 7

No recollection or premonition of that ever happening.
Las Vegas 54, Valley 6

The Northwest League is so down it won’t give Palo Verde, Arbor View a chance to improve before the playoffs.
Palo Verde 47, Sierra Vista 6

Panthers make it five in a row.
Palo Verde 40, Sierra Vista 14

Coronado controls its own destiny to host a playoff game.
Coronado 48, Del Sol 13

Over by halftime.
Coronado 49, Del Sol 6

Shadow Ridge will match Arbor View physically; just not on scoreboard.
Arbor View 31, Shadow Ridge 13

Jacob Speaks might run for 200 yards this week.
Arbor View 46, Shadow Ridge 15

This is potentially the game of the week. I’ll take the team not suffering from the Gorman hangover.
Centennial 23, Cimarron 22

Michael Barnson sparks Spartans’ offense.
Cimarron 27, Centennial 24

Speaking of closely contested games, anyone have a coin? I’ll take the home team.
Spring Valley 14, Durango 13

This is Durango’s last chance at a win.
Durango 30, Spring Valley 28

Silverado preps for big game next week against Green Valley.
Silverado 53, Rancho 0

Not sure how much prep Skyhawks will receive. Won’t be close.
Silverado 48, Rancho 0

Foothill gets back on track, still has one of Sunrise Region’s top attacks.
Foothill 50, Eldorado 0

Let’s give some love to the Foothill receiving corps, led by David Perci and Ian Ellis.
Foothill 49, Eldorado 23

Liberty continues to show it’s the class of the Southeast.
Liberty 44, Basic 19

Basic could salvage a disappointing season in one swoop here, but that’s far-fetched.
Liberty 44, Basic 28

Western’s season is already over. And it’s still October.
Faith Lutheran 43, Western 0

Are the Crusaders this year’s biggest surprise? They’re at least in the conversation.
Faith Lutheran 36, Western 8

Virgin Valley locked into the No. 3 seed regardless; needs momentum for the playoffs.
Virgin Valley 32, Sunrise Mountain 10

Bulldogs might be disappointed with losing two in a row, but a 7-2 record on the season should make them proud.
Virgin Valley 40, Sunrise Mountain 13

Cheyenne takes care of business, grabs playoff spot.
Cheynne 15, Clark 13

Hard to imagine Cheyenne missing the playoffs a year after it made a deep run.
Cheyenne 38, Clark 30

Mojave’s ground game too strong, helps Rattlers secure No. 2 seed.
Mojave 32, Pahrump Valley 26

Somewhat surprised Mojave couldn’t win its division, but a home playoff game will suffice.
Mojave 37, Pahrump Valley 27

Chap closes strong to grab final playoff berth.
Chaparral 25, Boulder City 21

X-Man (Xavier Steel) to the season rescue.
Boulder City 24, Chaparral 20
