Week 1: Prep picks return

The prep football season is upon us and that means one thing — bring it on, Ryan.

For the past eight months I’ve had to grudgingly put up with the incessant smack talk of my partner in crime, Ryan Divish. The Montana native managed to beat me every which way but sideways in our prep picks contest last season. And I’ve pretty much been reminded of that fact every day since November — if not by Ryan then by other TNT sports staffers who like nothing more than to whack people when they’re down like a candy-starved school kid smacking a piñata hanging from the ceiling.

How can a Tacoma native lose to someone that doesn’t even know where the Narrows Bridge is, you ask?

I don’t know what to say. I’m ashamed, but like Vince Tarsi and his boys at Emerald Ridge who went winless last year, I’m living in the now, not the past.

And this week will be the first of the several whippings I’ll dish out to Divish this prep football season. Guaranteed.

Kentridge quarterback Brandon Turner will be our guest picker this week. Thanks for playing Brandon and good luck this Saturday at Qwest Field against Ingelmoor.

We have some great games this week, including South Kitsap at Kentwood tonight, Auburn traveling to Curtis on Friday and two powerhouses in Lakes and Gig Harbor meeting at Qwest Field on Saturday. Take a look at the full slate of games at our revamped preps scoreboard here, or read more about the marquee games in this story.

Have a good weekend and get out to see some high school football.
