Football is finally back! Yeah Van Buren beat Hopewell-Loudon last night and Whitmer smoked Start, but it really ‘starts’ up tonight. You see what I did there? Okay maybe that wasn’t funny..
How did i do last year? Regular season (65-10 picking most of the season)
Let’s get to the picks:
Anthony Wayne vs Findlay - Anthony Wayne didn’t lose until November last season, and Findlay is starting a sophomore at QB. Gonna go with Anthony Wayne tonight.
Arcadia vs Hardin Northern - Arcadia has their largest team in some time. Hardin Northern has a first year head coach. But they also have the best player on the field in Owen Wetherill. Going with the Polar Bears tonight.
Arlington vs Riverdale - Both teams are very different from last season and they each have a new quarterback. I have Carter Essinger running all over the Riverdale defense and leading Arlington to a win.
Carey vs Leipsic - Two playoff teams from a season ago. Leipsic is by a lot of people the favorite in the BVC this season. I’ll take the Vikings over the Blue Devils.
Columbus Grove vs Pandora-Gilboa - PG has gotten the best of Grove the last two times they played to open up the season. I have Blake Reynolds and the Bulldogs getting the win tonight.
Lakota vs Mohawk - Mohawk is a very different team from last season, but Lakota is still in the process of rebuilding. I’ll take the Warriors over the Lakers
McComb vs Delta - McComb is also a very different team from last season. They have a Tanner Schroeder sized hole that is impossible to fill. Yet they find a way to beat Delta tonight.
North Baltimore vs Elmwood - Lots of familiarity between Zach Walls and Greg Bishop. Walls coached under Bishop at North Baltimore when he was the head coach of the tigers. Both teams struggled last year. I’ll take Elmwood in this one, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Levi Gazarek does something special and gets a win for North Baltimore.
Northwood vs Woodmore - Woodmore didn’t win a game last season. Northwood made the playoffs. Taking my Rangers over the Wildcats.
Oak Harbor vs Fostoria - I just don’t see how Fostoria keeps this one from getting out of hand early. Gimme Oak Harbor.
Tiffin Calvert vs Monroeville - Calvert handled Monroeville with ease a season ago. I see much of the same tonight.
Tiffin Columbian vs Fremont Ross - It should be a very fun game in Fremont tonight. Because I picked against Columbian a lot last year I will go with them this week.
Vanlue vs Danbury - If Vanlue wants a win this season they may need to start 1-0. Yet I’m going with the Lakers in this game.
Wynford vs Liberty-Benton - I won’t pick this game since it’s the game I will be calling tonight. Join Matt Cotman and I on Mix 96.7 WBVI around 6:50.
Thank God Football is finally back!
