Friday HS Football Picks

I'm jumping in this in the middle of the season, but better late than ever. Every Friday, I'll post a list of my high school football picks. I actually do follow HS football, and go to a few games every year. I find it more exciting, more unpredictable and a lot cheaper than the pros. So below are this weekend's picks. You can let me know where I'm wrong. If you're good at this, I'll be begging you for your predictions every Friday.

Pocono Mtn W over Allen; (17-6)

Bangor over Catty (going out on a limb here); (14-35)

E Stroudsburg S over Dieruff; (53-14)

Easton over Freedom; (35-21)

Nazareth over Parkland; (21-420

Emmaus over Northampton;  (35-14)

Pen Argyl over N. Lehigh; (41-28)

Saucon Valley over Salisbury; (38-7?)

Notre Dame over Southern Lehigh (in an upset);  (7-15)

Wilson over Palisdes;

Liberty over Central Catholic (upset);

Whitehall over Becahi.

Updated Friday night: Looks like I'm 6 for 9 so far. Not sure about the SV score.

Wilson over Palisades? Are you smoking something?

Any word on Moravian, Muhlenberg, or Lafayette?

"Wilson over Palisades? Are you smoking something?"

Yes.

Your Parkland 420, Nazareth 21 was pretty close to the truth. Watched 2nd half and saw Parkland run the same play for a TD 3 times. Seems an adjustment could have been made.

Bill, Is your grandson playing, or is he strictly a wrestler?

Bill Coker said...

He's going to the community college. Then will go to Kutztown after two years (or sooner...he's getting itching for the party scene, I think).

I liked your ND pick and was surprised they got smoked. My Crusaders are still somewhat schizophrenic, but they're more competitive than they've been in years.

Wonder about your thoughts on the Infield Fly Rule debacle in last night's Cards/Braves game ...

I told you not to pick Wilson over Palisades.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Yes, you did.

"onder about your thoughts on the Infield Fly Rule debacle in last night's Cards/Braves game."

Hey, I suppose he could have made that call, but isn't he supposed to put his hand up in the air so everyone knows?

The Allentown High School football teams are such a disgrace, why is it that they suck so so much?

Allentown has the best athletes. I know some of them, so look out. I think what affected it was that many parents were moving in and out so a kid could not be in the area for more than one or two years. That seems to be changing in basketball, And I see it on a youth level. For football, it still seems to be something of a problem.
