Steve and I will go head-to-head throughout the season. Here is our updated records on the Tribskin Pick’em thread.
Robledo: Last week/Total: 14-1/88-26
Ramirez: Last week/Total: 14-1/78-36
Last Week Steve should have chipped away at my lead by going 14-1, but I went 14-1 also, which equals our best week combined. The only games that kept us from being perfect is that I stubbornly picked La Puente over Azusa, and he picked Bassett over Workman. The darn Montivew, it got us again.
This week: The San Antonio is going to be a great race all the way. Friday’s game of the week is between undefeated and Southeast No. 1 Rowland against undefeated No. 2 Walnut, a game that sounds great on paper, but I’m leaning heavily towards the Raiders, who have been more impressive in nonleague. How about West Covina and South Hills? If the Huskies had the Canada’s, I would take the Huskies but without them, I like the Bulldogs’ chances to beat them for a second straight year. Chino Hills and Damien is another special one, and though the Spartans have burned me before, I’m taking them again with two weeks off to prepare and being at home. Bishop Amat and St. Paul in most weeks would get top billing, but this might not be as close as past encounters, the Lancers are playing too well.
