A few good games for Week Ten, especially when your Super Six teams are matched up against each other one way or the other (these are the weeks I wish someone else was doing the picking).


Perkiomen School at St. Andrew's School, Del.: Perk head coach Tom Calvario tells me every team he faces is bigger and more athletic than his own, and yet the Panthers are 5-1 going into their final game. A long bus ride to Delaware could be factor, so could St. Andrew's stud quarterback and hold on Perkiomen in recent years ... ST. ANDREW'S.

Exeter at Daniel Boone: Exeter is headed to the District 3-AAAA playoffs, and another win could lead to an opening-round home game. The Eagles won't be overlooking an injury-ravaged Daniel Boone in this neighborhood rivalry ... EXETER.

#1 Pottsgrove at #4 Phoenixville: Phoenixville has made big strides in recent weeks, but Pottsgrove has made giant strides. If Falcons play like they did a week ago against a very good Perkiomen Valley team, they could find themselves back in the District 1-AAA final ... POTTSGROVE.

#3 Spring-Ford at #2 Perkiomen Valley: This could be and likely will be a great, great game. Except for being disarmed in their respective games with Pottsgrove, both teams have great offensive arsenals. Expect Jones to be back in the Rams' backfield. That could be the difference ... SPRING-FORD.


Upper Perkiomen at Pope John Paul II (2 p.m.): Both teams are winless, but this is still an intriguing match-up. Upper Perkiomen's run game may be slowed a bit by the condition of the field. PJP's receivers know where they're going, and so does their quarterback. Could be an entertaining back-and-forth battle ... POPE JOHN PAUL II.

#5 Methacton at #6 Pottstown (3 p.m.): Methacton has some playmakers of its own, two very under-rated two-way starters in Lowery and Given, and a lot of confidence with two straight wins. Pottstown has as elusive (and good) quarterback as anyone and a whole lot of very fast playmakers around him, too. Don't know if it's an upset or not, but... POTTSTOWN.

Boyertown at Owen J. Roberts (7 p.m.): Boyertown regained its offensive magic last week, while OJR lost some of its own when one of the best receivers in the PAC-10 and area went down for the remainder of the season. Bears may have the most improved secondary of anyone the past month. ... BOYERTOWN.

Last Week: 6-1.
For the Season: 56-16 (.778).
