Leesville Road's Malcolm Hitchcock scores a touchdown against Apex.
I'm really making these picks last minute this week, aren't I?
Better late than never though.
We've got some interesting games this week. One of the most interesting to me is Panther Creek at Leesville Road. I'm going to pick Leesville Road, simply because it's hard to pick against Braxton Berrios, but like I've said for two weeks now, this is a game Panther Creek can win.
I think Panther Creek is better than they're given credit for. Many people will talk about the Berrios-led Leesville Road offense against the Dorrel McClain-led Panther Creek offense. I suspect the offenses will both make plays, but I think this game will be decided by the defenses.
That's why I think Panther Creek has a decent shot at pulling off the upset. The Catamounts return a very solid defense this season with a lot of experience. They're also pretty athletic. I'll be at this game, and I can't wait to see how it plays out.
Here are my picks for this week...
