Thursday, August 28, 2014 - 9:01 pm

TOM DAVIS, News-Sentinel sports editor

Last week: 6-4

Overall: 6-4

North Side over Delta – Only chance Eagles have is due to them being coached by a Yorktown grad (Grant Zgunda).

Bishop Dwenger over Concordia Lutheran – Cadets surprise me in opener, but not vs. realy good Saints team.

Bishop Luers over Northrop – Kyle Lindsay's kids are rolling once again.

Wayne over Kokomo – Generals own the North Central Conference.

Bluffton over Manchester – No way a Randy Hudgins' coached team loses to a Wabash County football program.

Eastside over Adams Central – Blazers let me down with spanking by Woodlan. They'll redeem themselves this week.

Norwell over Heritage – With or without “RH2,” Knights showed their ability with win at Leo.

East Noble over Warsaw – New-look Tigers (at least offensively) slow to get off the ground this season.

Garrett over DeKalb – Hey, hey the Barons won last week! Remember that feeling because it won't happen this week.

Churubusco over Lewis Cass – What? You want me to pick against the Eagles again and look stupid?
