Tribskin Pick’em: Could be another tough week for Bishop Amat, Charter Oak and San Dimas … Figuring South Hills goes down as well

The game: In this year’s Tribskin Pick’em, Aram will I will do it a little differently. We’ll pick all games from the SGVN coverage areas of the Tribune, Whittier Daily News and Pasadena Star-News for an all-encompassing, all-out bragging right for 2014, since nobody ever pays the dinner bet. I won last year, ending Aram’s two-year win streak.

Aram Tolegian (Last Week: 26-10; Season Total: 26-10)
Fred Robledo (Last Week 24-12; Season Total 24-12)

Last Week: We were off in so many games we thought were sure-bets like Bishop Amat over Santa Margarita, San Dimas over Monrovia, La Habra over El Toro and Baldwin Park over El Monte. Then there were the surprises like La Mirada over Tesoro and La Canada over Verbum Dei. But Aram takes Week 0, getting me with games like Don Lugo over Walnut, Bonita over Schurr and El Rancho over Claremont, to name just a few.

This Week: Look for Bishop Amat to start 0-2 heading to Texas to face an Aledo team that went undefeated last year and already is 1-0. After big wins last week, La Salle and Pasadena could get interesting, but La Salle gets the edge. I also like Los Altos over San Dimas. As good as the Saints are, they’re still not quite as good as the best in the SGV. They’ll get going again when they get to their Valle Vista and Mid-Valley comfort zone. If Monrovia’s plays like it did in the second half against San Dimas, it will beat Bonita. South Hills will likely get stomped by La Habra, and figuring Charter Oak could get crushed by La Mirada too. What do you all think?
