SOME OUTSTANDING MATCHUPS THIS weekend in high school football...and some local teams are battling for a playoff spot. Here is the way I see some of the better games...
Firestone at Ellet...Huge game, especially for Ellet. The Orangemen have an outside shot at making the state playoffs and this is a MUST WIN game for them. I think they'll come through, but it will be a squeeker!
Copley at Wadsworth...The Indians are also shooting for a playoff spot and this is HUGE for them. My guess, and this is a real tossup, will be the Grizzlies in what could end up being a classic.
Kenmore at Northwest...The Cardinals have been inconsistant this year. Up one week and down the next. This will be a down week. Cards to lose but it will be closer than you think.
Highland at Green...The Bulldogs are having a lot of fun this year, and this weekend matchup will continue that trend. Green in a romp.
Norton at Ravenna...Both of these teams are having great years and I don't have a clue in this one, so let's flip a coin. It comes up Ravens, but not by much!
St. V-M at Barberton...The Irish are also looking for a spot in the postseason and can't afford to lose to the Magics. Trust me, they won't stumble. Irish in a romp.
THERE YOU GO. NOW DON'T BE betting the paycheck on these picks...I do this just for fun.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE DEBATE tonight, or better yet listen in on 640 WHLO and call me with your thoughts Friday morning starting at 9am on the Jim Albright Show. Later. Jim
