Lance's High School Football Picks - Week 6 2018

Last week I was nearly perfect on my picks. I didn’t see the Sailors getting thumped by the Tornadoes. Nonetheless, enough beating around the bush. Here are this week’s picks:

 

Last week 11-1

 

LIBERTY-BENTON vs RIVERDALE - Closer game than it should be on paper. I’m going with Riverdale, but I’m not all that confident about it.

 

NORTH BALTIMORE vs CORY-RAWSON - Both teams with just one win apiece. I don’t see North Baltimore limiting the current BVC leading rusher, Tommy Stauffer. Going with Cory-Rawson.

 

ARLINGTON vs VAN BUREN - Man, Van Buren has gone through a gauntlet. McComb, Leipsic and Pandora-Gilboa. It doesn’t get easier against Arlington. I’ll go with the Red Devils over the Black Knights

 

ARCADIA vs PANDORA-GILBOA - Pandora-Gilboa will get it into a running clock situation and try to stay healthy one week before a possible BVC title game against McComb in a week.

 

HOPEWELL-LOUDON vs VANLUE - One of these teams has Sam Stickley. One of them does not. I am going with the team that does. Give me the Chieftains big.

 

FINDLAY vs CLAY - Things will be different for the Trojans the second half of the season since they will play without starting quarterback, Tanner Rickle. Clay though is also on their back-up at quarterback. I’ll go with the Trojans over the Eagles.

 

FOSTORIA vs EASTWOOD - Eastwood made the State Title game in 2017 and took it to overtime. They lost a lot of talent from last year’s team, but they are still a very good team. Eastwood will prevail.

 

CAREY vs UPPER SANDUSKY - It should be an interesting one at Memorial Field. Each team comes in at 3-2. I’ll take the Blue Devils over the Rams.

 

MOHAWK vs COLONEL CRAWFORD - Mohawk keeps rolling after having a close one with Seneca East. The Warriors will get to 6-0.

 

SENECA EAST vs WYNFORD - Since the Northern Ten Athletic Conference started back in 2014 Wynford has won the conference every season. They’ve also never lost a regular season league game (lost to Carey in the playoffs in 2017). I have the Tigers taking down the Royals and handing them their first ever regular season league loss.

 

TIFFIN COLUMBIAN vs SANDUSKY - Sorry, Tiffin Columbian, I don’t have them winning against an unbeaten Sandusky team. They were my one miss a week ago. Let’s see if lightning strikes twice in the same spot.

 

TIFFIN CALVERT vs MARGARETTA - The Senecas got back on track against Fremont St. Joe’s. I don’t see them losing again until the postseason.

 

LAKOTA vs GIBSONBURG - Lakota is starting to get back on the right track, but they won’t take down a team that’s one blemish against them was by an undefeated Mohawk team. Give me the Golden Bears.

 

MCCOMB vs LEIPSIC - I won’t pick a winner for this game since it’s the game I’m calling tonight, but if McComb has as many issues with penalties as they did against Arlington then Leipsic will make them pay.

Lance's Football picks

It's never too late to start something, right? When I was apart of our pregame coverage for high school football I got to make picks every week before we went to our game coverage. (Side note, you should listen to the NWO Orthopedics Psych Up Show from 6-6:48 on ESPN 1430 AM / 105.7 FM WFOB and Mix 96.7 WBVI)

 

Needless to say I miss making picks. Here are my picks for week 5:

 

VAN BUREN vs PANDORA-GILBOA - Gotta go with Pandora-Gilboa. Van Buren will make this one exciting just as they did last week against Leipsic

 

LIBERTY-BENTON vs NORTH BALTIMORE - Liberty-Benton lost their first two games of the year by one. They started their BVC slate with two teams that are still unbeaten (Leipsic and P-G). They get win number one tonight.

 

CORY-RAWSON vs ARCADIA - Going with Cory-Rawson in this one. Although, Arcadia does have some athletes that could help this one be close.

 

VANLUE vs RIVERDALE - Riverdale struggled against McComb last week. They right the ship against Vanlue.

 

HOPEWELL-LOUDON vs LEIPSIC - Leipsic showed me in their games against Liberty-Benton and Van Buren how great they can be in stretches. They will beat Hopewell-Loudon, but they have to expand their run game beyond Gavin Lomeli who is second in the BVC in carries.

 

FINDLAY vs ST. FRANCIS - The Knights are back and competitive for the first time in several years. The Trojans have had some of the worst luck to start this year. They change their luck and win at the Glass Bowl tonight.

 

FOSTORIA vs WOODMORE - The Redmen were without some of their best players against a very good Otsego team. They need this one before they travel to Eastwood and Lake the following two weeks. Give me the Redmen.

 

TIFFIN COLUMBIAN vs VERMILLION - Columbian has been impressive after going winless in 2017. They face a Vermillion team that is in the top half of the SBC. I have the Sailors over the Tornadoes by single digits.

 

TIFFIN CALVERT vs FREMONT ST. JOES - Calvert has a bad taste in their mouths after a two point loss to Gibsonburg (Coach Steve Reser's old squad). I have the Senecas winning big on Saturday.

 

SENECA EAST vs MOHAWK - One of the biggest games in the area and the other one featuring 4-0 teams (McComb and Arlington). I'm going with the Warriors over the Tigers and we're gonna see a good game from Warriors QB Keith Jenkins

 

LAKOTA vs SANDUSKY ST. MARY’S - I've got the Raiders in a close one over the Panthers.

 

MCCOMB ARLINGTON - I won't pick this game since this will be the one I'm broadcasting. Should be an exciting one that could determine who wins the BVC

 

And be sure to check out the BVC Game of the week tonight on Mix 96.7 WBVI between McComb and Arlington with Matt Cotman and myself here.
