Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
14-5 (.737)

46-17 (.730)

Gorman’s schedule finally yields a loss. But it’s close.
St. John Bosco 31, Gorman 26

Don’t worry, Gorman. It’s going to be a long time before you lose again after this one.
St. John Bosco 36, Bishop Gorman 24

Yes, I’m picking against Palo Verde again. It finally clicks this week for Liberty.
Liberty 41, Palo Verde 19

This game should go down to the final minutes, but Liberty’s defense is too dominant to pick against.
Liberty 20, Palo Verde 15

Still shocked Las Vegas didn’t score against Palo Verde.
Centennial 19, Las Vegas 14

Wildcats need to get Elias Miller the ball more to ensure they don’t get shut out two weeks in a row.
Centennial 24, Las Vegas 13

This game will be won in the trenches.
Arbor View 27, Coronado 14

Herman Gray might break 100 yards rushing in every game this season.
Arbor View 26, Coronado 17

This is do or die for Faith Lutheran in its championship defense. Desperation gives Crusaders small edge.
Faith Lutheran 32, Mojave 31

Why did I ever doubt the Rattlers again? They’re the better team right now.
Mojave 34, Faith Lutheran 20

Bye week allows for Cimarron to get back to basics of running the football.
Cimarron 28, Legacy 23

Given the competition, Legacy’s 3-0 start is misleading.
Legacy 34, Cimarron 28

Closer than you think. Eldorado puts up big-time fight.
Canyon Springs 31, Eldorado 20

Pioneers’ win over Foothill was a sign that it’s all coming together.
Canyon Springs 41, Eldorado 27

Basic makes quick work of Durango, shifts attention to Henderson Bowl.
Basic 43, Durango 12

Josh Villaros gives the Wolves’ offense a much-needed weapon on the edge.
Basic 48, Durango 18

Anyone remember when Bonanza upset Silverado to open 2011 season? Anything is possible.
Silverado 34, Bonanza 6

I do, and I also know an upset this year isn’t at all possible.
Silverado 35, Bonanza 0

Chalk one up for the Mustangs.
Shadow Ridge 51, Valley 18

Mustangs quietly have a lot of playmakers.
Shadow Ridge 49, Valley 27

Rancho’s improvements are obvious, but Moapa Valley isn’t a team they’ll find success against.
Moapa Valley 58, Rancho 0

Moapa Valley is finishing the regular season undefeated. It’s a fact.
Moapa Valley 63, Rancho 12

Spring Valley’s Christian Tasi continues to shine.
Spring Valley 48, Western 0

Count me in on the Grizzlies.
Spring Valley 44. Western 14

Clark starts getting healthy against Pahrump Valley.
Clark 34, Pahrump Valley 12

The obligatory much-closer-than-you-think game of the week.
Clark 22, Pahrump Valley 21

Must-win game in the race for the playoffs.
Virgin Valley 41, Sunrise Mountain 19

With games against Desert Pines and Moapa Valley up next, Virgin Valley needs a confidence boost here.
Virgin Valley 49, Sunrise Mountain 12

If Desert Pines comes to play, it’s one of the best in the Division 1A. Saturday, Jags come to play.
Desert Pines 49, Boulder City 23

Tough road game, but Desert Pines comes together just in time to pull out close win.
Desert Pines 35, Boulder City 29

If Cheyenne keeps winning close games, I’ll keep picking the Desert Shields.
Cheyenne 30, Sierra Vista 28

Mountain Lions are far better than they showed against Mojave last week.
Sierra Vista 38, Cheyenne 28

Chaparral’s skilled position players are too athletic for Del Sol.
Chaparral 29, Del Sol 22

In a close game, Dragons blow away Cowboys.
Del Sol 27, Chaparral 21
