Robert's High School Picks October 3, 2008

Posted: Updated:

October 1, 2008  37-15,  19-6,   56-21

  We have reached October and the temperature is starting to drop with fall in the air.  The action is about to heat up on the high school gridiron.  What a week of games we have with Cairo visiting Worth County, Cook at Fitzgerald and I hear there is a game between Northside-Warner Robins and Lowndes.  As for the old expert, I was 19-6 last week and in three weeks I have a 56-21 record.  Lets go.

Northside-W.R. at Lowndes:   Let's start with the big one.  These two teams have combined for five state titles and 54 straight wins.   The Eagles struggled on the road at Carver-Columbus a few weeks back and the Vikings needed not one but two Greg Reid fumble returns to beat Tift County last week.   I actually heard a Tift County radio announcer say Lowndes without a Greg Reid is an average football team.  I am sure Florida is average team without Tim Tebow.  The point is the Vikings do have Greg Reid and he will be the difference....Lowndes   27-21

Valdosta at Colquitt Co.:    The Wildcats and Packers are 0-2 in the region after both starting the season 3-0.   The loser of this game is in real trouble when it comes to the playoffs..Valdosta  35-14

Tift Co. at Houston Co.:  The Blue Devils are blue because they beat themselves last week against the #1 Vikings.  The challenge for Tift is to realize the season is a long way from being over and Houston County is a much improved football team.   Hangover alert...Tift Co. 14-13

Coffee at Warner Robins (Saturday):   The unbeaten Trojans head to Warner Robins to face a Demon team that has a tough defense...Coffee  21-20

Americus-Sumter at Thomas Co. Central:  The Jackets offense is on a roll after a slow start and that is bad news for the Panthers who have played TCC tough in recent years....
Thomas County Central  38-12

Bainbridge at Jones Co.:  The Bearcats gave #1 Westside-Macon a fight before the Seminoles pulled away in the stretch.  Greyhounds offense can score some points...Bainbridge  27-22

Lee Co. at Westside-Macon:  The winless Trojans cannot catch a break...Westside  34-7

Cairo at Worth Co.:  All eyes will be on Valdosta but this battle in Sylvester could be just a big.  Everyone knows how good the Syrupmakers are but the Rams have a tough defense and have had two weeks to get ready....Cairo  20-14

Crisp Co. at Perry:  The Cougars are in search for their third straight region win against a Panther team that likes to spread the field...Crisp Co.  22-21

Monroe at Peach Co.:   The road isn't any easier for the Tornadoes who hung tough last week at Cairo.  Winning in Fort Valley is almost impossible...Peach Co.  14-7

Westover at Dougherty(Saturday):  The Patriots are their own worst enemy after an offside penalty on 4th and goal at the Crisp County one cost them a big region game.  The Trojans have had two weeks to recover from a beating at Worth County.  Both teams have plenty of speed at the skill position....Westover  34-33

Berrien at Albany:   Rebels coach Ryan Branch has his team off to 3-0-1 start and Berrien is winning close games late.  Albany High will give Berrien a fight but the Rebels magic continues for another week..Berrien 25-22

Mitchell Co. at Brooks Co.: The Trojans are back in Quitman to host an Eagle team that is trying to get the license tag of the Hurricane that blew through Camilla last week..Brooks Co.  35-18

Thomasville at Early Co:   You could probably win some money from fans who would refuse to believe both of these teams are 0-4.   Bulldogs though are the best 0-4 team in the state.......Thomasville  19-13

Cook at Fitzgerald:  The Hornets fly into Fitzgerald ready to battle the Purple Hurricanes who have been impressive every week...Fitzgerald  34-27

Atkinson Co. at Lanier Co.:   The Bulldogs are back at the Lakeland pound ready for a rival game against the Atcos...Lanier Co.  26-12

Bacon Co. at Clinch Co.:  The Panthers got a suprisingly tough fight last week from Terrell County while the Raiders are still looking for their first win....Clinch Co.  44-18

Calhoun Co. at Seminole Co.:  The Indians finally got their first win of the season while the Cougars were stuffed at home...Seminole Co.   22-18

Wilkinson Co. at Randolph-Clay:  This game is always great in basketball and the gridiron version could be just as entertaining..Randolph-Clay  29-27

Miller Co. at Terrell Co.:  The Pirates are unbeaten while Terrell County is 3-2 but one of those losses was to AAA Monroe and they gave Clinch County a battle in the other loss.  Greenwave get better each season but I don't know if they are there yet...Miller County 34-29

Hawkinsville at Irwin Co:  Two very good teams who are both having tough luck getting wins..Irwins Co.   18-14

Wilcox Co. at Telfair Co.:  I hope the scoreboard has enough power because these two offenses will give it a workout in McRae...Wilcox Co.  52-26

Twiggs Co. at Turner Co.:  The Rebels air show faces a dangerous group of Cobras who are still trying to catch their breath from last week's game in Rochelle..Turner Co.   27-20

Piedmont at Deerfield-Windsor:   Dorothy made it home in the "Wizard of Oz" and the Knights are ready for homecomign..Deerfield-Windsor  36-19

Westwood at Brookwood:  This game used to be a big rivalry but the Wildcats are Class A and the Warriors are AA..Brookwood  46-20

Sherwood Christian at Windsor:  Region opener for the Knights who get a Windsor team that has been ranked number one this season... Windsor  34-30

Tiftarea at Southwest Georgia:  The Panthers haven't lost a game since week one but somehow have lost their top ranking.  Tiftarea  27-26

Valwood at Fullington:  The rebuilding Valiants face a Trojan team that is getting better...Valwood 20-12

David Emanuel at Crisp Academy:  The Wildcats search for a win continues for another week..David Emanuel 27-14

Randolph-Southern at Aucilla Christian:  Patriots travel to Monticello where I think they will get a win...Randolph-Southern  27-15

Terrell Academy at Central Fellowship (Saturday):  The Eagles head to Macon for a battle with the Lancers...Terrell Academy  37-25
