Keefer's Picks
Last Week
15-2 (.882)
121-34 (.780)

Are the Jags still the 3A classification favorites? Yes.
Desert Pines 50, Del Sol 12

I’d agree that they’re the favorites, but if it’s Desert Pines or the field, I’ll take the field.
Desert Pines 46, Del Sol 21

Tough to win at Moapa Valley in the playoffs.
Moapa Valley 28, Pahrump Valley 13

Jacob Leavitt has been absolutely incredible for Moapa.
Moapa Valley 38, Pahrump Valley 20

Cheyenne is peaking at the right time.
Cheyenne 51, Chaparral 39

Not even picking "your" Cowboys? *Shakes head.* I'll do it for you.
Chaparral 28, Cheyenne 20

I’m going down with the Miners.
Sunrise Mountain 30, Virgin Valley 23

There’s some real upset potential here, but I think the Bulldogs’ defense is enough to prevent it.
Virgin Valley 28, Sunrise Mountain 21

Silverado sends Coronado to winless season in league play.
Silverado 19, Coronado 13

In any division other than the Southeast, Coronado could have competed for a playoff spot.
Silverado 34, Coronado 13

Teams will combine for more than 100 pass attempts.
Liberty 54, Basic 37

I’ll take well under 100 pass attempts, because Liberty will be up by too many points at the end to throw.
Liberty 49, Basic 20

And the playoff spot goes to....
Green Valley 20, Foothill 19

Can I pick a tie? Legitimately torn 50/50 on this game.
Foothill 21, Green Valley 20

Las Vegas readies for playoff with easy win.
Las Vegas 50, Valley 0

Can’t see this being close.
Las Vegas 41, Valley 7

Canyon Springs will be a tough out in the playoffs.
Canyon Springs 40, Rancho 0

Can’t see this being close part II.
Canyon Springs 36, Rancho 0

Can both teams combine to score more than 100 points?
Faith Lutheran 49, Centennial 37

No, but I do smell a shootout.
Faith Lutheran 41, Centennial 27

Shadow Ridge gets back on track.
Shadow Ridge 30, Palo Verde 15

Confidence boost from first win is all Palo Verde needed.
Palo Verde 28, Shadow Ridge 26

Not only is Gorman not giving up any points, it’s not surrendering a first down.
Bishop Gorman 59, Durango 0

From six straight wins to two straight losses for Durango.
Bishop Gorman 49, Durango 6

Ricardo Hill has been great for Bonanza.
Bonanza 31, Clark 16

Good on the Bengals for winning three in a row after this one.
Bonanza 37, Clark 16

Legacy snaps two-game skid.
Legacy 43, Cimarron 20

I wouldn't want to face Legacy in the playoffs.
Legacy 50, Cimarron 13

Anyone have a coin?
Desert Oasis 19, Spring Valley 16

Probably unfair to Grizzlies, but I can’t get their 42-12 loss to Sierra Vista out of my mind. Desert Oasis almost beat Sierra Vista.
Desert Oasis 24, Spring Valley 20
