COLUMBUS THISWEEK PICKS Last Week: (14-1) Season: (44-16, 73%) 14-1. I'm not gonna lie...that feels good. I missed just one game last week - Dublin Scioto over Westerville Central. According to the ThisWeek Sports staff, no one has ever gone 15-0. So close. Time to continue my climb. Still work to be done.
