My Week 10 DR Football Picks

Well this is it! The final week of the high school football regular season, and of the Daily Record pick contest! It is essentially a 2-horse race between Mike Plant (147-42) and Seth Imhoff (146-43). I don’t have a shot anymore, but hoping to finish middle of the pack. There are considerably more games this week, including some big rivalry games across the state at the high school level. Week 10 is one of the greatest times of the year! Let’s get into the picks.

Week 9 Results and What I Learned

What a week it was in week 9. League championships (or shares) were decided, Ohio State went into overtime, record performances in the NFL, and the Browns won! With only one more week to go, let’s see what we learned and how the pick contest standings will be going into the final week.

My Week 9 DR Football Picks

This is a huge week in the high school football with the WCAL championship between Hillsdale and Chippewa, and the de-facto OCC championship between Wooster and West Holmes, and with Triway able to clinch the PAC at Manchester. There are other games, too. After this week, most playoff scenarios will be ironed out, but we’ve gotta get through the week, first. Let’s dive in!

Week 8 Results and What I Learned

Sorry for the late post – been sick since Sunday, and just now finding time to turn on a computer, let alone look at scores and think about them. Anyway, keep reading for the week 8 results, an update on the DR pick contest panel, and what I learned from lat week’s games!

My Week 8 DR Football Picks

With only 3 weeks left in the regular season, the Daily Record Pick Contest is really starting to wind down, with Seth Imhoff and Mike Plant neck-and-neck at the top of the standings with Aaron Dorksen in 3rd, 5 games back. It’s a 2-horse race (maybe 3), but I’m well out of the running. Time to sit back, enjoy these last final weeks, and maybe work towards a respectable finish. There are some intriguing match-ups this week, so let’s dive right in!

Week 7 Results and What I Learned

Things are starting to shape up at all ranks – high school, college, and professional – but there were still some upsets and interesting games this past weekend. With only 3 weeks left in the regular season, there is not much time for teams to make a final push for a conference championship or playoff berth. Keep reading for the week 7 results, an updated pick contest ranking, and what I learned from last week’s games.

My Week 7 DR Football Picks

Last week was somewhat status quo for many high school teams, as some of the favorites avoided upset alert unlike the NCAA ranks where over half of the top-20 teams got knocked off. This week there are some more entertaining match-ups all up and down the slate, from high school to college to the NFL. Let’s dive right in!

Week 6 Results and What I Learned

The football weekend wasn’t nearly as crazy in the high school level as it was at the college level, where nearly a dozen top-20 teams went down, something I’m not sure has ever happened before outside of bowl season. Regardless, we still learned plenty from some of the local teams in their key match-ups. Keep reading for game results and what I learned!

My Week 6 DR Football Picks

Sorry for the late post this Friday afternoon. Long morning of plane flights to beautiful St. Simons Island, GA, where one of my best friends is getting married. I’ll be missing my first Triway football game in nearly a decade, but it’s worth it. Getting to see many friends for the first time in nearly 5+ years is worth missing a few high school football score updates. But for those interested in this week’s action, here are the week 6 football games, my rundowns, and my picks!

Week 5 Results and What I Learned

What a week it was in the Wayne County Athletic League! All four conference games went down to the fourth quarter, with some of them being decided on the last possession. Other area teams played well, too, against OCC And PAC foes, making this one exciting week of high school football! Keep reading for the week 5 results, what I learned this week, and an update on the Daily Record pick contest.
