Robert's High School Picks

Posted: Updated:

September 17, 2008

 My first week of picks was a respectable 16-9 record.  I had Albany and Monroe winning on the road but Turner County and Berrien tripped me up with road wins.  The schedule this week is light with most 1-AA schools taking a bye week before region play starts next week but the 1-AAAAA schedule starts with four big games.  Here we go.

Colquitt County at Lowndes:   The Packers are an improved team under head coach Rush Propst who will have a surprise or two for the number one Vikings.   Lowndes is used to such tricks however...Lowndes 38-17

Houston Co. at Coffee:   The Bears have bounced back after a miserable 2007 season while the Trojans have not allowed a point and they have played two very good non-region teams in Ware County and Shaw..Coffee  22-8

Valdosta at Northside-Warner Robins-  The nation's winningest high school program is on the road for their region opener against one of the state's best this decade.  The Wildcats had a wake up call with their close win over Jonesobor while the Eagles barely escaped Columbus with their 33 game winning streak..Northside 15-14

Warner Robins at Tift County -  The Blue Devils took out their frustrations on Cook while the Demon Deacons have one non-region loss to Grayson...  Tift County 28-22

Bainbridge at Harris Co. -  The Bearcats make a long bus trip up U.S 27 to play the Harris County Tigers.   Bainbridge is still a work in progress under first year head coach Ed Pilcher but I believe they have enough for a road win..Bainbridge 25-13

Hardaway at Lee Co. -  My alma mater is looking to go 2-0 in the 1-AAAA while Lee County needs a win in the worst kind of way.  Trojans hung tough at Bainbirdge and I thnk home field will be to their advantage..Lee County 19-14

Perry at Westover(Thursday): The unbeaten Patriots have plenty of speed at the skill positions but inconsistent play is a concern.  Perry found its stride in the second half last week at Hawkisnville...  Westover 26-24

Dougherty at Worth Co: The Trojans showed they too have some weapons at receiver and Felton Walls is a playmaker under center.  Worth County though is not going to be in a good mood after the Fitzgerald game..  Worth County 24-18

Crisp Co. at Monroe:  The Tornadoes have yet to give up a point while the Cougars are coming off a home loss to Turner County.  Crisp County's passing game has given Monroe trouble in the past... Crisp County 20-19

Turner Co. at Brooks Co: The Trojans have had two weeks to put the Tift County game in the rear view mirror.   They better because Turner County is on a roll after their win at Crisp County last week..Brooks County 36-32

Miller Co. at Atkinson Co:   The east side of the region is at home and the winless Atcos continue to struggle against the mighty Pirates...Miller County 33-8

Calhoun Co. at Bacon Co.:  Another long trip for the Cougars but I believe they have some much needed confidence after last week's home win..Calhoun County 29-25

Seminole Co. at Clinch Co.: This game used to be for the region title but the rebuilding Indians search for their first win continues next week... Clinch County 48-12

Terrell Co. at Lanier Co.:  This is a big game for two teams that are 2-1 and both wanting playoff berths.  I like the Bulldogs at home..Lanier County 19-16

Randolph-Clay at Pelham:   Two teams who both need a win especially the Hornets.  I think the streak finally ends this week... Pelham 13-12

Dooly Co. at Warren Co:   The Bobcats have struggled early but a long trip to Warrenton might be just what Dooly needs..  Dooly County 27-15

Irwin Co. at Portal: Both teams are 0-3 but Irwin County has faced better competition...Irwin County 36-6

Bryan County at Wilcox County:  The unbeaten Patriots welcome the winless Redskins to Rochelle.. Wilcox County 43-13

Greenville at Schley County: This is a key battle in region 4-A.  The Wildcats have plenty of offense and are at home..Schley County 27-22

Webster Co. at Pacelli:  The search for a first win continues for Webster County..Pacelli 36-16

Deerfield-Winsdor at Pinewood Christian:  The road weary Knights face another long bus trip this time to Belville where Pinewood is always ready to play.  Deerfield-Windsor 20-19

Brookwood at Southwest Georgia:  The Warriors from Thomasville should not be in a good mood after last week's loss at Tiftrea while the Warriors from Damascus may have a score to settle with their former region rival... Brookwood 32-24

Stratford at Southland:  The Eagles are unbeaten and the Raiders have won two of three..  Stratford may be the team everyone is chasing in December...Stratford 28-14

Sherwood Christian at Westwood:  The Eagles put up a good right shorthanded while the Wildcats got a much needed win... Westwood 28-27

Flint River at Tiftarea:  Panthers win over Brookwood moved them to number two in the coaches poll.  The Wildcats are number three.   Tiftarea lives up to the ranking...33-20

Windsor at Terrell Academy:  Windsor is ranked number one in AA and Terrell Academy is a legitimate state title contender in Class A.   If Keaton Icard can go for Terrell Academy, I think the Eagles fly to a win ...Terrell Academy 20-16

Crisp Academy at Covenant: The winless Wildcats face a challenge from a 2-1 Covenant team. Covenant 15-13

Dawson Street at Randolph-Southern:  The Patriots are at home to face a very athletic Dawson Street squad... Randolph-Southern 22-21
