My apologies to the Winterboro Bulldogs. It seems I didn’t give enough credit to the team from Alpine in my picks last week. But they set me straight, proving they are not a team to take lightly. I’ll try to remember that when picking games the rest of the season. The Winterboro-Talladega County Central game is the only game I picked incorrectly last week, which leaves me with a record of 11-1. Now for this week’s picks (Home team in all caps)…
LINCOLN over Childersburg: The Golden Bears took a tough beating last week against Handley, but they’re back at home this week and I think they’ll be ready for county rival Childersburg. The Tigers are getting better each week, but I think they’ll come up a little short against Lincoln in this one.
SHELBY COUNTY over Sylacauga: The Aggies head into Week 4 with a three-game winning streak. Having not seen Shelby County, it’s hard to know just how much they returned from a year ago, but I’ll give Shelby the edge in a close one.
Saks over MUNFORD: The Lions are looking for their first win of the season. The Wildcats of Saks enter the game looking to bounce back from a shutout at the hands of Anniston last week. Saks has more experienced players, so I’ll give them the advantage over a young Munford team.
WADLEY over TC Central: This wasn’t an easy pick. The Tigers have a lot of incentive to win this one. And they could. But not if they play like they did last week. Playing in Wadley won’t be easy, so I’ll give the nod to Wadley and hope I’m wrong.
Other games: NOTASULGA over Fayetteville, RAGLAND over Parkway Christian, Victory Christian over COOSA CHRISTIAN, WINTERBORO over Donoho, B.B COMER over Montevallo, CHELSEA over Talladega, Clay-Chalkville over PELL CITY, CVA over Dixie, Alabama School for the deaf over FLORIDA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF.
