Tribskin Pick’em: Is Bishop Amat healthy enough to beat Mater Dei in Friday’s opener?

The game: Aram and I will go head-to-head throughout the high school football season for bragging rights. Can’t believe Week 0 is here.

This week: If Bishop Amat is everything we think it is then it will go to Orange County and get a victory over Mater Dei. Health might be a concern, however. DE Andrew Vassquez is out with a knee injury, Trevon Sidney is nursing a hamstring and big offensive lineman Matt Brayton is battling a shoulder injury. Not the greatest way to start, but it’s more important they’re healthy by league than Friday’s opener.
