FRIDAY FORECAST: The return of the pick ’em

On our video blog, “Two Geeks and a Pigskin”, we’ve been telling everyone that they can pick alongside of us on the East Bay Prep Pick’Em Challenge. Now, I’m figuring that since I can’t even log on and pick, you certainly can’t. As a result, Chace and I are reviving the Friday Forecast (yes, I know I’m posting on Thursday. What can I say, I can’t wait for Friday!) here on the East Bay Prep Sports Blog. We’ll be picking 10 games each week and you can pick with us in one of two ways. The first is you can use the comment feature at the bottom of the page to post your picks. The second, if you’d like to remain anonymous, is to email your picks to us at benos@bayareanewsgroup.com or cbryson@bayareanewsgroup.com and we’ll tally the standings. Alright, enough logistics, here are my picks on this week’s group of 10.

Pinole Valley over McClymonds: Purvis makes the difference
Pittsburg over Freedom: Pirates have tons to prove after last week’s loss to Valley Christian
Miramonte over Campolindo: Home team wins “Lamorinda Bowl”
San Ramon Valley over San Leandro: Southwick continues the magic
Foothill over Berkeley: Mannion gets first win as Falcons coach
Las Lomas over Concord: Kevin Reed gets after QB, makes impact
DLS over Loyola: One question — which DLS QB has a better game, MacGillivray or Wayne?
Clayton Valley over Heritage: Eagles need a win in a bad way, should have won last week
Dublin over Northgate: Broncos bubble gets popped
Hayward over Amador Valley: Guillory injury hurts Dons, Farmers hungry after poor effort against Cal

Alright, there’s the slate. Make your picks. We’ll keep track of it for ya.
