Season:

Case Keefer attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.

Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
13-5

Season:
58-20 (.744)

Gorman’s physical style of play will be the difference.
Gorman 32, Servite 19

Digging Servite’s all-black uniforms, but the Gaels look more impressive than the Friars on paper.
Bishop Gorman 28, Servite 13

Arbor View isn’t going to be challenged this week.
Arbor View 50, Shadow Ridge 7

Unless Shadow Ridge signs an NFL linebacker between now and Friday, it’s pretty clear how this one will play out.
Arbor View 49, Shadow Ridge 6

Desert Pines finally breaks into the win column after a rough start.
Desert Pines 32, Eldorado 13

As long as the Jaguars aren’t too demoralized over starting the season 0-4, they should be fine here.
Desert Pines 38, Eldorado 14

Green Valley continues to be a pleasant surprise.
Green Valley 38, Coronado 13

Good call by Brewer when he picked Gators to make the playoffs this year, which will seem all but clinched after Saturday.
Green Valley 42, Coronado 29

Moapa Valley is too much for rebuilding Faith Lutheran.
Moapa Valley 46, Faith Lutheran 6

Crusaders have no answer for Conner Mortensen and Sean McConnell.
Moapa Valley 48, Faith Lutheran 20

Anyone have a coin? I’ll go with Sierra Vista in an evenly matched contest.
Sierra Vista 16, Clark 15

Foresee the Mountain Lions pulling off the slight upset here.
Sierra Vista 27, Clark 20

This game will be closer than most think.
Las Vegas 29, Valley 18

Valley has clearly improved, but not to the level necessary to compete with Las Vegas.
Las Vegas 36, Valley 15

Desert Oasis controls its own destiny for hosting a playoff game.
Desert Oasis 40, Spring Valley 13

Done picking against Desert Oasis and Trevon Barnes for the rest of the season.
Desert Oasis 34, Spring Valley 8

Durango gained confidence last week with a lopsided win.
Durango 33, Pahrump Valley 17

Even if Durango looks ahead to next week’s shot at revenge against Desert Oasis, it will be fine Saturday.
Durango 35, Pahrump Valley 6

Everyone in town is rooting for Sunrise Mountain to break its losing streak.
Canyon Springs 58, Sunrise Mountain 6

Canyon Springs will win its next four games to set up the Northeast championship against Las Vegas in the last week of the regular season.
Canyon Springs 49, Sunrise Mountain 0

I’ll take the more athletic team.
Del Sol 32, Liberty 19

Liberty stands strong in one of the most anticipated Henderson games of the year.
Liberty 31, Del Sol 20

Basic seems to give Silverado matchup problems.
Basic 33, Silverado 26

The Wolves are more reliable and likely to capitalize on Silverado’s mistakes.
Basic 24, Silverado 21

Rancho is the best one-win team in Las Vegas.
Rancho 43, Chaparral 12

William Gosse-Gardett should throw for a lot of yards in this one.
Rancho 56, Chaparral 13

This is basically a Northwest Division elimination game in the race for the playoffs.
Legacy 32, Cimarron 24

Would love to see this game. Anyone want to send me a tape?
Cimarron 23, Legacy 21

Centennial continues to get healthy.
Centennial 33, Mojave 16

Congratulations to Mojave for breaking its losing streak, but can’t imagine another win this week.
Centennial 40, Mojave 7

Palo Verde puts an end to Cheyenne’s great start to the season. And it’s not even close.
Palo Verde 42, Cheyenne 13

Are you offering Cheyenne +29? Yes, please.
Palo Verde 31, Cheyenne 16

Bonanza gets back on track after late collapse last week.
Bonanza 42, Western 0

Ironic that Bonanza lost a game in the second half after establishing a comeback identity all season.
Bonanza 34, Western 14

Virgin Valley one win away from winning 3A Southern League title.
Virgin Valley 25, Boulder City 14

Virgin Valley has looked more impressive through four games.
Virgin Valley 34, Boulder City 19
