Bay Area News Group High School Football Picks: Week 9, Fall 2021

Mike Lefkow, the reigning two-time champion in this all-for-fun high school football choice competition, had the best Week 8 record.

The bad news for Lefkow is that he was just a better game than yours and Evan Webeck.

Lefkow went 9-7. We went 8-8.

Yeah, we know. It’s like a bad division in the NFL.

Webeck – aka The Kid – continues to lead the competition even though he’s calmed down since moving to help complete our Warriors beat a few weeks ago.

He holds a two-game lead over me and a five-game cushion over Lefkow as we move into Week 9.

Only three weekends left before the playoffs.

Be sure to watch our roundtable video as we discuss the hot topics of the week and dig a little deeper into our predictions, which this week includes the Holy War game between St. Francis and Bellarmine, California-Monte Vista and Foothill-Dublin. .
