Keefer's Picks
Last Week
10-9 (.526)
26-11 (.703)

Why isn’t this game played at the end of the season?
Desert Pines 32, Moapa Valley 25

This game might be played at the end of the season too, and it will be close whenever it’s contested.
Desert Pines 36, Moapa Valley 34

This is Bellvue’s season opener and Gorman’s third game. Makes a difference.
Gorman 41, Bellevue 23

Bishop Gorman
Bellevue (Wash.)

No signs of drop-off anywhere from the Gaels.
Gorman 31, Bellevue 21

Anyone have a coin? Evenly matched game.
Legacy 20, Coronado 18

Tiger Geeslin will be the difference.
Legacy 24, Coronado 20

Arbor View scored 52 points last week; GV gave up 34.
Arbor View 39, Green Valley 20

Speaking of close games, I think this goes down to the final minutes.
Arbor View 28, Green Valley 24

Centennial doesn’t pitch a shutout like last season, but it still wins.
Centennial 38, Palo Verde 10

Containing Jamaal Evans will be a big test for the Panthers’ defense.
Centennial 30, Palo Verde 21

No better place to be on a Friday night in the fall than Basic’s Don Taylor Stadium.
Basic 26, Desert Oasis 15

If Wolves underestimate the Diamondbacks, this could be the upset of the week.
Basic 28, Desert Oasis 26

Bonanza’s Deshawn Williams is the best player in Las Vegas you haven’t heard of.
Bonanza 33, Valley 12

Been a while since the Bengals were on a two-game win streak.

Silverado gets back on track after bad showing at Foothill.
Silverado 30, Eldorado 6

Devion Clayton is bound for a big game.
Silverado 42, Eldorado 16

Rancho has a new streak — a winning streak, that is.
Rancho 18, Boulder City 12

The Eagles defend their home turf.
Boulder City 23, Rancho 15

I wouldn’t be surprised if Faith Lutheran goes undefeated in league games.
Faith Lutheran 33, Clark 17

Remember last year’s upset? So do the Crusaders.
Faith Lutheran 34, Clark 18

Chaparral has confidence after winning rivalry game against Eldorado.
Chaparral 29, Sunrise Mountain 25

Want to go with the upset, but can’t get last year’s 45-0 slaughter out of my head.
Chaparral 45, Sunrise Mountain 35

The low scoring game favors Virgin Valley.
Virgin Valley 13, Del Sol 12

Taariq Flowers puts Dragons on his back.

Cheyenne’s rushing game dominates from start to finish.
Cheyenne 19, Spring Valley 14

Sierra Vista, after a pair of tough defeats, enjoys first victory.
Sierra Vista 43, Western 0

Western’s first win in five years won’t come here.
Sierra Vista 42, Western 7

I’ll break against one of my golden rules by picking the road team at Pahrump Valley.
Mojave 23, Pahrump Valley 21

Don’t think it will be that close; Rattlers are for real.
Mojave 36, Pahrump Valley 13

Las Vegas shores up some defensive problems from last week.
Las Vegas 33, Shadow Ridge 10

Don’t be surprised if this is a tight game in the fourth quarter.
Las Vegas 33, Shadow Ridge 21

Speaking of rules: Always pick Cali team over one from Las Vegas.
Mar Vista 28, Durango 15

Mar Vista (Calif.)

That rule didn’t work last week, but I’ll follow it anyway.
Mar Vista 34, Durango 20

Despite being a work in progress on offense, C-Springs is 2-0.
