I took time from a round of golf in Tennessee last week to call Darryl Grumling's "Poopster" and what did I discover upon returning ??? The backyard brat went ahead and changed two of my picks, so I ended up 6-2 instead of 8-0. Because of the insubordination, Grumling has been instructed not to change the "Poopster's" kitty litter for four days.
Here we go...
Hill School at Peddie School: The Rams just lost another two-way starter (running back/linebacker A.J. Garcia) and have a long bus ride to New Jersey... Gotta go with Peddie School.
Red Lion Christian Academy at Perkiomen School: Red Lion has played some creditable competition, so its record is a little deceiving. Getting a forfeit a week ago cost Perkiomen some momentum... Gotta go with Red Lion Christian (in a thriller).
Daniel Boone at Twin Valley: Two teams with identical 0-5 records. Daniel Boone showed some spark in the second half last week, get a couple starters back from injury this week, and appear to have enough balance to squeeze that elusive first win for rookie head coach Bill Parks... Gotta go with Daniel Boone.
Boyertown at Spring-Ford: Spring-Ford should be itching to get back on the field and put up some points after being shut out last week. Boyertown's been giving up over 42 a game... Gotta go with Spring-Ford.
Phoenixville at Perkiomen Valley: Game of the Week for sure in the PAC-10. Phoenixville has some of the best individual talent in the league, but Perkiomen Valley has one of the best teams in the league... Gotta go with Perkiomen Valley.
Pope John Paul II at Pottstown: Injuries have hit PJP harder than any area team, so being less than 100 percent will make it awfully difficult to go step-for-step with explosive Pottstown, which incidentally has never beaten the Golden Panthers in the two previous meetings... Gotta go with Pottstown.
Upper Perkiomen at Owen J. Roberts: Upper Perkiomen's young group hasn't turned the corner yet, while Owen J. Roberts' has... Gotta go with Owen J. Roberts.
Pottsgrove at Methacton: Pottsgrove could come out flat after the big win over Spring-Ford last week, but the operative word there is "could." Methacton has turned it around with two straight wins, but it appears that streak will end against the Falcons... Gotta go with Pottsgrove.
Last Week: 6-2
For the Season: 29-12 (70.1%)
