WE STILL HAVE LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL football teams in the hunt for a state championship, and all play this weekend. All season I've embarassed myself with predictions and I have no pride at all, so let me continue my awful streak one more time.....
Massillon vs Toledo Whitmer at Mansfield...Whitmer is perfect this season with a 12-0 record. That will end on Saturday night as the Tigers win by a touchdown!
Chardon vs Aurora at Twinsburg...This will be a classic high school matchup. Both teams have had outstanding years. Aurora's season will continue after their win tomorrow night. I wouldn't be surprised if they win the whole shabang. By the way, whats a shabang?
Chagrin Falls vs St Vincent-St Mary at Solon...Chagrin is also having a record breaking season, but the Irish aren't so bad themselves. I'll flip a coin on this one...and it comes up Irish in a great game.
Brookfield vs Norwayne at Stow...These two teams are a combined 24-0 this season, so one of them will suffer defeat for the first time this year...and that will be Norwayne. I pick Brookfield in a close contest.
Mogadore vs Youngstown Christian at Ravenna...The Wildcats are on a roll this season, and that will continue tomorrow night. Mogadore looks like a state champ this year.
DON'T FORGET, ALL DAY TOMORROW I'LL BE HANGING out in the parking lot at The Plaza at Chapel Hill for 640 WHLO's annual Long Haul Against Hunger. I invite you to stop by and donate non perishable food items for the Akron/Canton Regional Food Bank. Many are still hurting with our current economy, so stop by and give what you can. Money is also welcome. Thank you in advance!
TALK TO YOU IN THE MORNING on 640 WHLO!! Jim
