It’s that time of the year. We have waited for the referee’s first official whistle since all the pigskins were put up. That just happened to be last December. This year brings in the hope that each and every prep football team in the Savannah area will make the state championship. We had one do that last year, The Memorial Day School (Matadors) Blue Thunder as they are called ion the gridiron and they brought the “SHIP” home.
Who will do it this year? Who are the best football players in the coastal empire? Who will win under the “Friday Night Lights”? I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait. That’s why I will make my weekly predictions every Thursday night. Last year I finished 69-13 after week 6. My picks are in bold. Hopefully I will be just as good starting in Week 1. We shall see.
Just like last season I will not pick the Effingham County (**), because I coach there and the Calvary (*) game, because my son plays for Calvary. My picks are the schools in bold. So you make the picks and let me know how good you do.
Once again the “Friday Night Lights” are about to be turned on and “You Gotta’ Love It”. Good luck to the entire Savannah Area Prep football teams tonight! No matter what, you are all winners because of the commitment you make everyday in practice to succeed on Friday nights.
