Lance's High School Football Picks - Week Four - 2021

How in the hell is it week four already?

 

I swear football time is not the same as ‘regular’ time. 

 

Still no time for chit-chat. Let’s get into the picks for this week!

 

My record so far through three weeks is now 31-9 after going 9-2 in week three.

 

McComb vs Van Buren - Van Buren got back on the right track last week against Arcadia while McComb demolished an undermanned Vanlue team. I have McComb winning this one.

 

Pandora-Gilboa vs Arcadia - Things haven’t gone great for Arcadia thus far, and I don’t think their fortunes change against PG. I’ll take the Rockets.

 

Wilmington Area vs Liberty-Benton - LB was able to get a team from Pennsylvania to come play after covid issues cancelled their game vs North Baltimore. I couldn’t find much on Wilmington other than they won a game 50 to nothing. I just watched Liberty-Benton easily put up 41 on a good Arlington team. I’ll take the Eagles in this Saturday matchup.

 

Riverdale vs Vanlue - Riverdale got their first win last week against Cory-Rawson. Vanlue has struggled about as much as Cory-Rawson has this year so I have to take the Falcons. 

 

Fostoria vs Elmwood - Elmwood is 3-0 for the first time in 10+ years. Fostoria is 0-3 for the second straight year. Do I really need to spell this one out? I’ll take Elmwood.

 

Carey vs Colonel Crawford - One of the best games in the area tonight. Colonel Crawford has been dominant in getting to 3-0. Carey is 2-1 with that loss coming against a Hopewell-Loudon team that is gearing up for a big postseason run of their own. If Carey is going to beat Colonel Crawford this is the year. I’ll take the Blue Devils

 

Upper Sandusky vs Mohawk - Mohawk had a tough loss to Gibsonburg last week. Upper is 1-2 though. I have Mohawk getting back on track in this matchup. 

 

Gibsonburg vs Calvert - Calvert is 1-2 after a loss last week to St. Paul. Gibsonburg is now 3-0 with a big win over Mohawk. The transitive property doesn’t always work, but I will still take Gibsonburg in this one.

 

Hopewell-Loudon vs Lakota - Lakota is 2-1 and coming off an emotional win last week over Woodmore. Hopewell is 3-0 and absolutely rolling. Lakota doesn’t knock them off the tracks this week. I’ll take the Chieftains.

 

Columbian vs Mayfield - Columbian is a deceiving 1-2. They lost a heartbreaker week one to still undefeated Fremont Ross, and to an also unbeaten Avon Lake. I think they get back on track against an 0-3 Mayfield team.

 

Findlay vs Central Catholic - Another deceiving 1-2 for Central Catholic losing to St. Ed’s and Benedictine. Findlay though is coming off a blow out win and now have a freshman quarterback at the helm. I could be wrong and wrong in a big way, but I’Il take Findlay getting a big road win in Toledo.

 

Cory-Rawson vs Arlington - 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.

Lance's High School Football Picks - Week Three - 2021

Back already for week number three of high school football!

 

Thank the lord it’ll be cooler tonight than it was the last two week because I can’t possibly describe how sweaty I have been the last two Friday’s.

 

Now that you may or may not have a mental picture of me sweating… Let’s go ahead and get into this week’s picks!

 

My record so far through two weeks is now 22-7 after going 15-2 in week two.

 

Arcadia vs Van Buren - Neither team has looked very good to start the season. I’ll take Van Buren in this one, but I’m not very confident in it.

 

McComb vs Vanlue - Vanlue played with just 11 players last week, and McComb went toe-to-toe with Marion Local. Panthers. Huge.

 

Pandora-Gilboa vs North Baltimore - PG took Bluffton to overtime last week. North Baltimore had a blowout win over Crestline. I’ll go with Pandora-Gilboa in this one, but this could end up being a decently close game. 

 

Riverdale vs Cory-Rawson - Riverdale was competitive in their game last week with Hardin Northern. While Cory-Rawson has continued to struggle this season. I have Riverdale getting their first win on the season. 

 

Fostoria vs Hopewell-Loudon - The struggles continue for Fostoria. Hopewell-Loudon is one of the best overall teams in the area. I have Hopewell big in this one.

 

Bowling Green vs Findlay - Bowling Green is 0-2 on the season while Findlay struggled last week to get anything going offensively vs Perrysburg. I have Findlay getting back on track tonight. 

 

Waite vs Carey - Looks like tonight will be the first game of the season for Waite. They did go 4-2 last year, but the City League is not exactly as powerful as it once was. It’s a good thing my mom doesn’t read these because I’m picking against her alma mater and taking the Blue Devils. 

 

Mohawk vs Gibsonburg - Mohawk comes in at 1-1 with a good win over Calvert before falling to a really good Hopewell-Loudon squad. Gibsonburg is 2-0 with wins over Ottawa Hills and Woodmore. Woodmore has not scored any points so far this season. I will take Mohawk getting back over .500 tonight. 

 

Avon Lake vs Columbian - Columbian got back on the right track after a tough loss at the end to Fremont Ross. Avon Lake is 2-0 with wins over Strongsville and Broadview Heights. I just have a gut feeling TC wins this one, somehow. 

 

Norwalk St. Paul vs Calvert - Calvert got back on track following their loss to Mohawk with a win over Monroeville. St. Paul doesn’t appear quite as dominate as they typically are, but I’ll still take the Flyers in this matchup. 

 

Woodmore vs Lakota - This one came together on short notice after Lakota was supposed to play Northwood, but they have covid issues within their team. Lakota will be playing emotionally tonight after the passing away of their defensive coordinator, Jon Ottney, following the game last week. I have Lakota winning this one big. 


Arlington vs Liberty-Benton - 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.
