Time flies during football season
by DHSports1
<p>It&rsquo;s hard to believe we&rsquo;re already in Week 3 of the high school football season. I&rsquo;ve decided to use this space to make picks on Wednesdays for the rest of the season. <br /><br />We have five undefeated teams in East Central Alabama and seven teams still searching for the first win of the season. Here are my picks (Home teams in all caps):<br /><br />Montgomery Academy over B.B. COMER: The Comer Tigers seem to be getting better and better each week. Their wins are coming, but I don&rsquo;t know that they&rsquo;ll pull it out this week. <br /><br />TALLADEGA COUNTY CENTRAL over Winterboro: I haven&rsquo;t seen TC Central play so far this season, but others who have tell me the Fighting Tigers have found a nice balance with the run and the pass. The Bulldogs have some speedy running backs, but Winterboro will have its hands full on Friday. I&rsquo;m taking the home team in what I hope is a close game.<br /><br />VICTORY CHRISTIAN over Jacksonville Christian: The Lions are off to an undefeated start this season and should be able to go to 3-0 this week. But only if they don&rsquo;t overlook the Thunder of Jacksonville Christian. JCA had mistakes and miscues against Alabama School for the Deaf a couple of weeks ago, but the team is capable of beating VC if the Lions don&rsquo;t come ready to play. <br /><br />SYLACAUGA over Talladega: Man, I want to pick Talladega in this one. History says I should. Sylacauga is the better team this year. They were the better team last year too, but lost to the Tigers at Mary Dumas Stadium. I think the Aggies are tired of losing to their county rival and will come out victorious in 2009. <br /><br />Hewitt-Trussville over PELL CITY: The Panthers have struggled so far this season and they&rsquo;ll probably experience more growing pains before the year is over. The Huskies are just too strong for the young Panthers in this one. <br /><br />Other games: <br /><br />Wadley over FAYETTEVILLE, CHILDERSBURG over Central-Coosa, CLEBURNE COUNTY over Munford, CORNERSTONE over Coosa Valley Academy, Ragland over JEFFERSON CHRISTIAN ACADEMY, HANDLEY over Lincoln. ALABAMA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF over Indiana School for the Deaf.</p>
