A.B.'s high school football picks
Last week's record: 3-1
Burke County at Greenbrier
This is a huge game for the Wolfpack. The picture is pretty simple - a victory gives Greenbrier a chance to sneak in and steal a playoff spot in Region 3-AAAA. If the Pack loses, it would take a miracle to make it to the state playoffs.
The Bears will have some incentive to get star running back Miquel Payne going, because a win would make Burke playoff-bound.
Burke County 26, Greenbrier 23
Lakeside at Butler
The Panthers can call off the search - their first win of 2002 will come Friday against Butler. The Bulldogs have some very talented players, such as tailback Cornell Scales and linebacker Jonna Lee. However, Butler has had a miserable season. So has Lakeside, but the Panthers will put it together this week.
Lakeside 17, Butler 14
Jefferson County at Harlem
Harlem has won two straight Region 3-AAA games since a disappointing loss at Washington County. This week the Dogs will make it three in a row. Harlem has too much speed on offense for Jefferson County.
Harlem 30, Jefferson County 13
Augusta Christian at Riverside Military Academy
Augusta Christian football coach Bruce Lane has done a terrific job in his first season with the Lions. Lane's multi-faceted offensive scheme has helped AC put up some big point totals, including a 56-0 win last week over Eagle's Landing Christian Academy. Look for AC to keep rolling this week with an easy win at Riverside Military Academy.
