Here we go again (I'm getting better with each passing week, although Pottstown Honda general manager Tom Reed thinks he is the high school football guru. Mr. Reed still refuses to pick one-on-one with me, though):

Friday's Games
Perkiomen School at George School: Both are young and very inexperienced, but Perkiomen has a good core of skill people ... Gotta go with Perkiomen.

Daniel Boone at Governor Mifflin: If you think Daniel Boone had a tough non-league grind, take a peek at who Governor Mifflin had to deal with. Tough Berks Football League opener for the Blazers ... Gotta go with Governor Mifflin.

Boyertown at Pottsgrove: Boyertown hasn't been able to stop the run yet this season. So what does Pottsgrove do best (as always)? ... Gotta go with Pottsgrove.

Perkiomen Valley at Pottstown: Both teams turned it around since season-opening losses. The Vikings will have their hands full with the Trojans' offense, which so far has as good a one-two punch as anyone with quarterback Sage Reinhart and running back Monroe Hampton. But Pottstown's defense has given up a whole heckuva lot of big plays and points ... Gotta go with Perkiomen Valley.

Phoenixville at Owen J. Roberts: Phoenixville may have taken over Perkiomen Valley's tag as the team "playing under the radar." The Phantoms have made giant strides since its opener. OJR is banged up a bit, though improved, will struggle holding down its guests ... Gotta go with Phoenixville.

Upper Perkiomen at Spring-Ford: Upper Perkiomen is struggling because of its youth (as any team would with only a couple of seniors back from the previous season). Spring-Ford, despite the loss of Jarred Jones, will still show a balanced and productive offense with Yousef Lundi running the ball and Hank Coyne throwing it ... Gotta go with Spring-Ford.

Saturday's Games
Pope John Paul II at Methacton: PJP can throw the ball better than anyone in the area, thanks to James Bleming and three very good receivers. Methacton is struggling, in part because of injuries to key personnel, but Brandon Bossard may be the wakeup the Warriors need this week. This may be the most competitive game of the week ... Gotta go with Methacton.

Episcopal Academy at The Hill School (at Pottstown High School, 7 p.m.):  Episcopal has three games under its best, winning all three by shutout. The Hill lost its opener by one point, and two key starters ... Gotta go with Episcopal.

Last Week: 6-2 ... For the Season: 17-9 (.654)

On The Season:
