…Star Picks…This guy’s no expert

Star-News preps writer Keith Lair and I will be going head-to-head throughout the season, and I will update our records each Monday on the “Star Picks” thread.

Melendez: Last week (3-7)
Lair: Last week (5-5)

I went a laughable 3-7 last week and Lair managed to break even. We have a full slate of games with Week 1 on Friday and since most teams played in Week 0 there’s a better feeling of how teams look and how they’ll fare in Week 1. Someone commented I should add CalPreps’ picks to see how I fare against them but I think for now I’ll just stick to the Melendez-Lair tandem. The only pick Keith and I both picked and got right was Ayala over Duarte. We both picked and got wrong Diamond Ranch (Muir won), Pasadena (Arroyo Valley won), La Puente (Gabrielino won; upset of the week) and San Gabriel (Cathedral won).
