Last Week’s Results: (15-5, tied for first)
So far so good. After one week in the Dayton Daily News Pickers Contest, I’m tied for first place with WHIO TV sports director Mike Hartsock. Mike and I tape a weekly segment called the “Preps Insider” so maybe that’s not by coincidence. Here’s how things look after Week 1:

I looked at my results and saw I only had eight winners. Thought I was cooked for sure. Turns out those 15 Week 1 games burned everyone. Hats off to Lee Cochran who was the only one to correctly pick Gahanna and Tri-Valley. I was the only one to pick Pickerington North. I got a bone to pick with this Purpura guy…
