Friday (Well Thursday) Pick ‘Em (September 16, 2021)

Another off week for us in Week 3 of the season, we carry a .500 record into Week 4. But on the upside we have a full slate of 7 games this week for you. And for the first time in a while we have no ranked teams from the Arkansas Valley. So let’s get to it, here is this week’s Friday…wait its Thursday…Pick ‘Em


Record: 7-7

Last Week: 2-3


Cheraw Wolverines (2-1) @ Kit Carson Wildcats (0-3)

Last Week: Cheraw defeated Walsh 46-12, Kit Carson lost to #2 Cheyenne Wells 69-6

Players to Watch: Cade Phillips (Junior, Cheraw), Danial Arnold (Senior, Kit Carson)

Prediction: Cheraw has not won a game against Kit Carson in the last 13 attempts. Kit Carson is having an off year. The Wolverines end the streak this week. Cheraw 56-6.



Wiley Panthers (0-0) @ Crowley County Chargers (1-1)

Series (Since 2004): First Meeting

Last Game: First Meeting

Last Week: Both teams with off weeks

Players to Watch: Riley Comer (Senior, Wiley), Tach Brewer (Senior, Crowley County)

Prediction: Wiley was struck with tragedy last week as they lost 4 of their own in an auto accident. So they have a little extra something behind them to get them going….Upset Alert in Ordway. Wiley 35-22

Players to Watch: Jake Manchego (Junior, Fowler), Aiden Martinez (Junior, McClave)

Prediction: Fowler had a wake up call last week with the blowout loss to Akron, and McClave comes in undefeated. It’s a battle and slugfest in Southeast Colorado. Fowler 35-28
