Star-News Pick’em: League openers highlight week 6

Keith and I are matching our knowledge of the area and high school football by offering our picks on the area’s games.

LAIR: 84-15 (10-2 last week)
RAMIREZ: 82-17 (12-0 last week)

Last week: Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and then, and last week was my turn as I turned in a perfect week, highlighted by St. Francis’ big win over Monrovia. I picked up two wins on Keith with that one, and also picking Heritage over Flintridge Prep.
This week: The Almont, Mission, Mission Valley, Olympic, Prep and Rio Hondo leagues all begin regular season play. Some of the top matchups include Gabrielino at Arroyo in the Mission Valley League and San Marino at South Pasadena in the Rio Hondo League. I like the Knights and Titans in those encounters.
