Jim's HS Football Picks

We've got no ranked teams vs. ranked teams games this week, which should mean it's an easy week, but there are plenty of coin flip level games here. I actually really like East Longmeadow and think they have a chance to make a real run the rest of the way, but I'm going to bank on Northampton answering the bell in what may just turn out to be a must-win for their playoff chances.

Here are all my picks for this week:

East Longmeadow at Northampton - Northampton
Putnam at Amherst - Putnam
Frontier at Belchertown - Belchertown
Central at Agawam - Central
Longmeadow at Westfield - Longmeadow
Holyoke at Minnechaug - Minnechaug
Pittsfield at Sci-Tech - Pittsfield
Mahar at Commerce - Commerce
Athol at Greenfield - Greenfield
Mohawk at Turners Falls - Turners
Ware at Pathfinder - Pathfinder
Franklin Tech at Dean Tech - Franklin

South Hadley at Cathedral - South Hadley
Easthampton at Pioneer - Easthampton
West Springfield at Chicopee Comp - West Springfield
Ludlow at McCann Tech - McCann

Last week: 12-4 (.750)
Season: 77-21 (.786)
