Star-News Pigskin Pick’em: Your picks and ours

Keith Lair and I will go head-to-head in the Star-News Pigskin Pick’em throughout the year. Here are the results from Week 0, with a look at Week 1.

Last week: Keith Lair (7-4); Steve Ramirez (6-5)
Season: Lair (7-4); Ramirez (6-5)

Last week: Keith got me by going for the Wilson’s win over Bosco Tech, and we both missed on Mountain View’s upset over Alhambra. But who had that one? If you did, buy yourself a cookie. We also missed on La Salle beating Temple City, Antelope Valley over Maranatha and Rio Hondo Prep’s big win over Arcadia.
This week: We got nearly a full slate of games, with the most intriguing being Monrovia at Ayala, which opened with a big win over Diamond Bar. Also, it doesn’t look good for Arcadia as it follows its loss to Rio Hondo Prep with a date with St. Francis.

    what about San Gabriel?You missed them in week 0 and You don’t have them for week 1.

  • Who cares

    They play so pas. If they don’t win by 24 the coaches should run them. So pas is slow and this is not going to be a contest. I see them winning by 30.

    Beware Alhambra ;; got more than Sparta to worry about on they turf Thursady night LC 28 Alhambra 6

    As an LC fan, I’ll be shocked if we beat Alhambra. No disrespect intended to Coach Sims. Alhambra (like CV, Arroyo, and Eagle Rock) has our number.

    Despite the Week 0 loss, Alhambra is a sizable favorite IMO.
