JOE WHELAN, WANE-TV weekend sports anchor
Woodlan over Bellmont – Jaylin Bennett is handful in the Warriors backfield – he leads them to a win.
Garrett over Eastside – The Railroaders may only return five starters, but one of those is Noah Follet and that's enough for another strong season.
New Haven over Heritage – Heritage lost a ton from a season ago and the Patriots will have a hard time staying in front of Jordan Hogue.
Carroll over Goshen – The Chargers are reloaded behind the Tranquill brothers and will start the season off with a win.
Warsaw over Columbia City – The Eagles have some big pieces to replace in 2013 and starting on the road will be a challenge.
Northrop over East Noble – The Bruins may be without Colin Brockhouse, but their defense is big and mean behind Austin Pearson.
Homestead over Huntington North – The Spartans always find a way to reload and they are dangerous once again.
Bishop Dwenger over South Side – I like the Archers to make some noise this season in the SAC, but the Saints looked very good in their scrimmage.
Snider over Bishop Luers – Both teams replace a lot, but losing 19 starters is too much to overcome for the Knights in the opener.
Wayne over Anderson – 2013 is the year the Generals start turning the corner – and it begins in week one.
