Pigskin Pickers still battling in tight race


We did not have any movement among the Journal-Tribune Pigskin Pickers this past week.
Sports writer Sam Dillon, reporter Mac Cordell, publisher Kevin Behrens, managing editor Chad Williamson and sports editor Tim Miller each posted 10-1 records last week.
The only thing that kept all of them from going unbeaten was Fairbanks’ upset victory over state-ranked West Liberty-Salem.
Dillon remains in first place for the season with a 52-10 record.
Cordell, otherwise known as the falling knife, is nipping at his heels at 51-11 and Behrens is two games back at 52-10.
Williamson and Miller are also in the thick of things as they are both 49-13.
Our guest pickers and their records from last week are Bob Van Hoose of Bob Van Hoose Garage Doors and Sales (7-4), Scotts Weeks of Weeks Plumbing (11-0), Dave Laslow of Burger King (7-4), Dean Cook of Dean Cook Nationwide Insurance (11-0), Rob Eubanks of Eubanks Electric (6-5) and Kellie O’Connors of Buckeye Family Pizzeria (8-3).

Williamson: “This is the last crack for Marysville to beat Upper Arlington as a league foe so I am really hoping they can pull it off this year. The Golden Bears are beatable, so the Monarchs will have to overcome their own historical hang-ups to pull out the win. Fairbanks will have a boost of confidence after a big win last week and North Union needs a win against a team of similar caliber. Also, I’m not feeling great about Michigan.”
Miller: “The Monarchs face a big battle at Upper Arlington on Friday. A victory would just about solidify their post-season hopes.”
Behrens: “This could be a week you see some movement in the Pickers Race with Williamson on Michigan island. I don’t know that you will see Dillon fall from the top, though, now that he has admitted to “Chanelling” Cordell’s picks. Will Channell, a former Picker, was known for copying picks to keep from buying pizza.”
Cordell: “Those of you looking for a good game should check out the Arizona State at Utah matchup. The game should be very competitive as both teams are good and really fun to watch. Plus, Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City has one of the best views in the country.”
Dillon: “It’s lonely at the top.”
Van Hoose: “Go Bucks!”
Weeks: “Go Bucks!”
Laslow: “Go Bucks!”
Cook: “Go Bucks!”
Eubanks: “Go Bucks!”
O’Connors: Go Bucks!”
