Wrapup and First 2009 Shootout of the Week (Week 3)

Well all, we need to do a little apologizing before writing about our picks of the week. We just disappeared after that last post on the Vype tournament. We had planned to provide more information about that event and an end of year summary. Instead, life (a tonsillectomy, 2 trips out of the state, multiple birthday parties for nieces and nephews, and the start of football practices) got in the way of us providing that to you. We hope that won't prevent you from returning here during the 2009 high school football season.

Looking at tonight's slate of games in the state, one game jumps off the page for us (particularly if you are in the western part of Arkansas). Shiloh Christian travels to Greenwood tonight for the renewal of series of games that has been EXTREMELY entertaining over the past couple of years. We have no reason to believe that both teams won't score 30+ tonight. If forced to make a prediction, we would go with the Saints. However, Rick Jones will have the Bulldogs ready, and it wouldn't surprise us if they came away with a hard fight win.

Another game that we notice in the slate is the Lake Hamilton trip to Little Rock to take on the Pulaski Academy Bruins. We feel that this will also be a high scoring game that matches two defending state champions. Both teams suffered heavy graduation losses, but both know what it takes to win. We look for an entertaining game, but won't pick a winner in this one.

That's it for this week. Have a great weekend! Hopefully, football will be part of it. If it is, try to stay dry. By the way, if you have a game that we should talk about, take the opportunity and talk about it yourself in the comments.
