Digging A Deeper Hole

(Note): I meant to publish this Thursday but had problems posting (my bad). The picks were made before Thursday’s games.

The taunting has gotten a little louder, both in the newsroom and at the games I cover.

What are you doing with your picks, some say.

Aren’t you supposed to know something about prep football, others say.

I smile and nod. There’s still a lot more season left.

One assistant coach, whose name and team I’ll leave out here, thanked me for not picking his team, because as he says, "I’m wrong all the time anyway, so keeping picking against us."

My 6-7 mark this week isn’t exactly something to run home and brag to mom about, but there is indeed a method to my madness.

Ryan Divish continues his hot streak, going 11-2 last week. He expects to go "At least 11-2 this week, too," he said.

Lakes quarterback Nick Williams also proved strong, finishing with a 10-3 mark, best among our guest pickers so far.

Thanks Nick for putting up with us, and good luck the rest of the season.

Our guest picker this week is Cascade Christian’s Charlie Velling, who hasrushed for 561 yards and four touchdowns this season so far.

Good luck, Charlie. Watch out, Ryan. The comeback begins.
