Who We Say Wins: Picking the Winners in Week 8

This week we continue our weekly attempt to pick high school football game winners. We’re going head-to-head with the staff at ThisWeek News in Columbus and we’re bringing back our statewide slate of big games. Here’s who we say wins in Week 6. Do we like your team’s chances?

Who We Say Wins: Week 8

Last Week: (5-1)
Season: (35-7, 83%)

Not perfect…but close again. I went 5-1, meaning the last four weeks I’m 26-2.
Almost went undefeated again, but Franklin held on for a huge 42-39 road win over Valley View in the Southwestern Buckeye League. This week won;t be easy. Centerville-Wayne and Coldwater-Marion Local are coin flips. Bellbrook-Brookville is a tough one too. Going with the Eagles at home.

Eric Frantz’s Pick Six Picks Week 8
Centerville vs Wayne: Centerville
Bellbrook vs Brookville: Bellbrook
Troy vs Trowood-Madison: Trotwood
Carroll vs Alrer: Alter
Xenia vs West Carrollton: Xenia
Coldwater vs Marion Local: Coldwater

Last Week: (15-0)
Season: (79-26, 1st, 75%)

Way to rebound. I’ll take perfection any time I can get it. A week after having my worst week of the season, I had my best ( and produced my first perfect score in the ThisWeek competition).
I also went from being down three in a tie for second to being up one and alone in first. Now can I stay there? Several tough games loom this week, specifically: DeSales-Watterson, Darby-Scioto, Licking Heights-Licking Valley, Delaware-Mount Vernon and Olentangy-Kilbourne.

Last Week: (14-6)
Season: (106-34, 76%)
Came back down to reality last week. After losing just eight games combined in weeks 4-6, I dropped six last week. I missed on Northmont, Loveland, Manchester, Logan Elm, Bellaire and Lehman Catholic. This week, we’ll try to rebound. Overall, this week’s slate isn’t as appetizing as recent weeks.
