    CONGRATS PREP FAN

  • Prep Fan

    Thanks. That was a lot of fun, as always. It was nice to regain the glory from DonFan, although technically it is eternal. That will now go on the mantel with the 2008 award as bookends. And with a lot of worthy competitors, it is not something to taken lightly or for granted. I will hold my head high, at least until the results of the NorCal Bracket Challenge are finalized. You are only as good as your last prediction. :)

  • RedWoodz

    Maybe Next year something could be set up to where the winner gets free tickets tto the Norcal finals and the winner of the norcal bracket challenge could get a free tickets to the state finals

    CONGRATS!!! quality quote on it too

  • LFielder

    When do BASEBALL rankings come out?

  • Jimmy Durkin

    Unfortunately RedWoodz, we don’t have any access to tickets to games or anything like that and I doubt the CIF would be willing to provide us with tickets to give away in a contest. It’s something we do for fun. If we start offering prizes, it begins to have the hint of gambling which is not something we want to promote in relation to high school sports.

    And LFielder, baseball rankings will be coming out next week along with our league previews.

  • Prep Fan

    Hey, I’m not complaining. Nothing wrong with a little eternal glory.

  • LFielder
