Back already for week number two of high school football!
Rob Thomas said it best because it’s gonna be a hot one tonight.
No time to waste so let’s get into this week’s picks. Not a banner week in week one as I went 7-5 in my picks. Who else saw Columbian losing an absolute heartbreaker?! Anyway let’s get back on track...
Liberty-Benton vs Archbold - I think LB is going to be a very good team within the BVC, but DJ Newman is ridiculous. I’ll go with Archbold in this one.
Waynesfield-Goshen vs Arcadia - Arcadia couldn’t beat Hardin Northern last week, and Waynesfield-Goshen had a good win last week over Ada. I have to go with Waynesfield-Goshen tonight.
Ada vs Arlington - Arlington looked very good to start the season. I’ll go with the Red Devils getting to 2-0 heading into their rivalry matchup with Liberty-Benton next week.
USV vs Cory-Rawson - I’ll believe it when I see a Cory-Rawson win. I will go with USV
Hardin Northern vs Riverdale - Riverdale will look better than they did last week against Colonel Crawford. I still don't think this will get them their first win of the season. I will take the polar bears.
Otsego vs Van Buren - Man, did Van Buren not look great against Elmwood last week. It doesn’t get easier for them taking on a really good Otsego team. I will go with the Knights defeating the Black Knights in this one.
Crestline vs North Baltimore - Crestline was 1-7 in 2020 with their only win being over Vanlue. I think this North Baltimore Team is at the least deeper than that squad. I will take the Tigers winning tonight.
Pandora-Gilboa vs Bluffton - PG struggled to get anything going last week vs Grove. Bluffton dominated Cory-Rawson. I don’t think Bluffton has as big of a blowout win in this one, but I will go with the Pirates beating the Rockets.
Vanlue vs Ridgedale - It doesn’t look good for Vanlue this year. If Vanlue does win a game this year this one would probably be it. I’ll take Ridgedale in this one though.
Fostoria vs Seneca East - Fostoria has some winnable games. I do not think this is one of them. I will take the Tigers.
Findlay vs Perrysburg - Findlay had a great win last week against Anthony Wayne. Perrysburg struggled last week against Dublin Jerome. I have Findlay moving to 2-0.
Southview vs Columbian - TC lost a heartbreaker last week. Southview had a nice win against Rodgers. I think Columbian won’t take their foot off the gas this week. I have the Tornadoes big.
Lake vs Northwood - Battle of Lemone Road is always a big one for both of these schools. Lake couldn’t get anything on the board last week against McComb. Northwood didn’t allow any points in their win over Woodmore. I have the Rangers winning this one.
Elmwood vs Lakota - Both teams won to start their seasons. Elmwood though looked even more dominant in their win. I will go with the Royals in this matchup.
Carey vs Galion - Galon had a close win to start their season. Carey lost to a Hopewell team that is one of the best in the area. I think Carey gets back on track in this one.
Hopewell-Loudon vs Mohawk - Two very good teams take the field in this one. I liked what I saw from Mohawk last week in their win over Calvert. Hopewell also beat a good team in their win over Carey. I think Hopewell wins this one, but it shapes up to be a fun game.
Calvert vs Monroeville - Monroeville struggled in their game against Lakota. Ditto for Calvert in their game with Mohawk. I think Calvert airs it out a bit more and they get their first win of the season.
Marion Local vs McComb - I won’t pick this one since it’s the game I will be calling tonight. Hear all the action with Matt Cotman and I on Classic Hits 96-7 right here.
