Keefer's Picks
Last Week
12-2 (.857)
57-15 (.792)

Foothill’s defense is the best in the Southeast league.
Foothill 23, Palo Verde 13

Tough call but there’s no reason for me to jump off the Palo Verde bangwagon now.
Palo Verde 21, Foothill 20

For the 24th year, the bone stays home.
Las Vegas 39, Rancho 7

Wildcats are certainly keeping the bone but the Rams have closed the gap a bit.
Las Vegas 42, Rancho 20

Longhorns are a few plays away from being undefeated.
Legacy 28, Green Valley 19

Legacy falls behind early, stages dramatic comeback.
Legacy 34, Green Valley 28

After two close defeats, Shadow Ridge flexes its muscles.
Shadow Ridge 50, Mojave 0

Can’t see a way the Rattlers keep this close.
Shadow Ridge 45, Mojave 12

Silverado rumbles its way to 400 rushing yards, league win.
Silverado 43, Durango 8

Skyhawks look unstoppable.
Silverado 39, Durango 21

I’ll take Nevada in the Liberty Bowl.
Liberty (NV) 36, Liberty (AZ) 22

Liberty (Ariz.)

Tempted to take the Arizona team just because of their great logo; too bad I think the Nevada team is the right side.
Liberty (NV) 42, Liberty (AZ) 31

Moapa Valley unstoppable coming out of a bye week.
Moapa Valley 32, Cheyenne 19

This one comes down to the final minutes.
Moapa Valley 27, Cheyenne 23

Make it two straight wins.
Valley 13, Slam 9

Need to see Slam get a win against a bigger local school before I can pick it to happen.
Valley 22, Slam 12

Boulder City has a chance to be playing in a meaningful game in November.
Boulder City 53, Western 0

Eagles are soaring.
Boulder City 42, Western 7

Del Sol the best one-win team in Nevada. Still high on the Dragons.
Del Sol 34, Sunrise Mountain 20

Nice opponent for Del Sol to bounce back against following last week’s beatdown.
Del Sol 44, Sunrise Mountain 14

Wolf Pack get back on track.
Basic 35, Eldorado 6

Basic should be happy to get out of the far North portion of its schedule.
Basic 27, Eldorado 14

Another tough out-of-state foe for the Crusaders.
Bakersfield 33, Faith Lutheran 7

Faith Lutheran
Bakersfield Christian (Calif.)

Hard to get a read on the Crusaders when they’re overmatched in every game.
Bakersfield Christian 38, Faith Lutheran 13

Ditto for Canyon Springs.
Clayton Valley 39, Canyon Springs 12

Clayton Valley (Calif.)
Canyon Springs

Bad news for Canyon Springs: Clayton Valley looks especially strong this season.

Coronado improves to 3-0 against the Class 3A.
Coronado 43, Pahrump Valley 18

I can’t enough of the Cougars.
Coronado 36, Pahrump Valley 16

Make it four straight for the Chargers.
Clark 18, Spring Valley 14

Grizzlies' defense will make it hard on Chargers.
Spring Valley 21, Clark 7

Ring the bell. D-backs win Bell Game.
Desert Oasis 34, Sierra Vista 13

This will be Desert Oasis' first win in the rivalry game since 2015.
Desert Oasis 35, Sierra Vista 14

Nice bounce back win for Cimarron after tough defeat.
Cimarron 27, Virgin Valley 22

I thought it was Brewer who preached that Mesquite was a tough place to win?
Virgin Valley 24, Cimarron 21
