Russ McDonald has been a longtime player in the LCJ pick-em contest.
He has always been one of our better pickers. This week, he was the best.
The Heavener teacher and coach showed no signs of rust from the long layoff in going a perfect 13-0 to start off this year’s contest.
For the win, McDonald wins an arm band and tee-shirt for the upcoming Poteau Balloonfest, sponsored by the Poteau Chamber of Commerce.
Despite his impressive performance, he only won by one game over Ed Jirash and Brian Terry. Eight other pickers only missed two games.
