No doubt, it is easy to see how these three managed to make it through the exhaustive tryout camps and survival camps to make up our panel this year.
Week 3 was no exception. Jerry Pitchford won for the second straight week with a 7-1 record, followed closely by Doug Hall at 6-2 and Mark Caldwell, who has struggled a little early with the intense pressure of trying to repeat as overall champion, at 5-3.
“That’s not a surprise,” Pitchford didn’t say after being informed he won again. “Like I have said so many times, especially about myself, ‘the cream always rises to the top’!”
In addition to winning week three, Pitchford moved to the top of the overall rankings with a 25-4 mark, two games above Caldwell and Hall.
“I’m just letting Pitchford get overconfident,” Hall likely would have said. “He’s my neighbor and I am planting subliminal messages to make him make bad choices.”
“I am King,” Caldwell also didn’t say. “That Mr. Pitchford (not what he actually called our leader since this is a reader friendly website) is going to get knocked down and off. His time is up.”
As you are probably aware, the picks get much tougher this week as most of the county teams and colleges open district and conference play.
Now, it is time to see if all that hard work paid off.
“I would like to thank all my fans and…” Pitchford tried to say, but was edited out because of time.
The Bokoshe game is listed as playing at Boulevard Christian. The Tigers actually host Eagle Point this week.
