Week two is quickly approaching! As much as I didn’t think week one would ever come I am much more confident we have a ‘full’ high school football season.
As long as teams/coaches and fans keep being safe along with the media, pressbox folks and other workers can as well I have high hopes for the season. Damn you Panic At The Disco.
Last week I went 11-3.
Here are my predictions for week two:
Arlington vs Pandora-Gilboa - Battle of two teams who dominated in week one. Shot in the dark but I’ll go PG.
Troy Christian vs McComb - Both teams won their week one game. McComb is still McComb though so I will go with them.
Arcadia vs Van Buren - Both teams lost their first game. They both played pretty good teams though as well. I’ll take Van Buren in this one.
North Baltimore vs Cory-Rawson - Neither team put points on the board in week one. Although North Baltimore at least was able to put some drives together. I’ll take the Tigers.
Vanlue vs Riverdale - Both teams lost to start the season. I just don’t see a way Vanlue wins this one so I have to take Riverdale.
Carey vs Mohawk - Mohawk looked impressive against Upper Sandusky. While Carey only put up 7 on Colonel Crawford. I think it should still be a close game, but I’m going with the Warriors over the Blue Devils.
Fostoria vs Lake - Another matchup where neither team looked good to start the year. I think Dom Settles finds a way to win this one for the Redmen.
Findlay vs Fremont Ross - Rivarly week comes early this year for the Trojans with the change in the schedule. Both teams won in week one, but Whitmer is a tougher opponent than Clay. Taking the Trojans to move to 2-0.
Sandusky vs Columbian - This game has been a very interesting one over the last few years. I see Columbian winning by 10+ in this one.
Calvert vs Fremont St. Joe’s - Calvert rolls on after a beatdown of Hilltop and does something similar to Fremont St. Joe’s.
Gibsonburg vs Hopewell-Loudon - Well Hopewell-Loudon will get their week two game in. Maybe a little later than they hoped, but still. Although they didn’t pick a great game to come back to because the Golden Bears are gonna want a big win after losing to Northwood. Gotta go with the Golden Bears. (Game will be played on Labor Day)
Northwood vs Ottawa Hills - Ottawa Hills surprised people (well at least me) with a win over Margaretta to start their season. I don’t think Northwood will have much trouble though with the Green Bears.
Hardin Northern vs Ridgedale - Both teams lost big in week one. I’ll take the Polar Bears again though...
Leipsic vs Liberty-Benton - I won’t pick this one since it’s the game I will be calling. Listen to Matt Cotman and I live around 6:50 tonight! It will be the first ever high school football broadcast on Classic Hits 96-7!
Enjoy week two everyone!
