Star-Picks: Fire up the grill and cook up a little pigskin …

Vacation is over and it’s time to bring out the clipboard and enjoy Friday nights on the sidelines. Year 3 of my tenure begins, and I’m holding onto the reigns a little stronger. This fresh face has some new wrinkles and the body armor needed to dive right into the action. Our weekly Star-Picks kicks off Monday on the blog. I challenged Stang Fan and Goldenarm for picks last year, but I’m unsure if they’re willing to go at it again. I’m sure the 1-9 start from last year won’t be a problem this time around. Later today I’ll have Two Minute drills with Aram Tolegian as we profile the Roosevelt-Alhambra and San Gabriel-Muir games. For now, here are the predictions. Game of the Week votes, anyone?
