Ollie, Mae, Willie and Slim all go 2-1 with their district finals picks
THREE RIVERS — The competition gets more difficult the further you advance in the Michigan High School Athletic Association high school football playoffs.
Our local prep prognosticators are finding out how tough the going is just as well.
Not one of our five panelists was perfect on their prep district finals picks last week.
Ollie The Optimist, Willie B. Wrong, Mae B. Wright and Slim Pickens all went 2-1 and Ken I. Callum finished 1-2.
Ken, however, was the only one to predict Hillsdale to beat Constantine.
