Aram and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season for our annual dinner bet.Week 0 results are in
Last Week: Robledo (18-7); Tolegian (33-13).
Season: Tolegian (18-7); Tolegian (30-16).
Last Week: Aram and I both went 18-7, but we got there taking different paths. I nailed him taking Ayala over Monrovia, Orange Lutheran over Damien, Norwalk over Diamond Bar, South Hills over Bonita and Covina over La Puente. He came back with Valley Christian over Duarte, Garey over Ganesha, South El Monte over Nogales and Ontario Christian over El Monte. I don’t know how we both got to 18-7 cancelling each out so much, but we did.
This week: If you want to call it going out on a limb taking South Hills over West Covina, go ahead, I just think the timing is right. One team has been drinking their bottle of get tough and the other is on the ropes. One team is without their starting QB and the other is playing their best defense in years. There will be new Kings of Cameron on Friday. I like El Monte to bounce back against Covina in a fun-to-watch game at the District on Thursday and I like Bishop Amat in another thriller over La Mirada, who has played as well as anyone. I like San Dimas to get revenge on San Gabriel, Charter Oak to beat Los Alamitos at Veterans Stadium and don’t think Chino Hills can knock off mighty Tesoro after going toe-to-toe with Amat last week.
