Welcome to another of our weekly high school sports chats. Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. Lets attack the questions.
Fred,I didn't do to bad. I picked 6 out of 8 State Finals in Football. I missed Althoff against Mercer County.Picked Althoff,missed by a touchdown.Picked Lincoln Way East over Glenbart West missed by a touchdown, Cam Mammen made another All State Team.Edgy Tim's Rivals picks out of Chicago.Cam was first team again.
Hi Tom. The state final games were my downfall. I only picked three of the eight correctly. Congratulations on doing so well. I guess I should have listened to you! When i first saw that all-state team picked by EdgyTim I thought he'd included a lot of players, but as I examined it, the 33 players he has listed on offense cover classes 5A through 8A, so in fact that is a pretty exclusive list. For Cam Mammen to be listed as one of the top eight quiarterbacks among all the state's big schools is a tremendous feat and a reflection on his abilities. I won't be surprised to hear one of these days that he gets a scholarship offer from the Illini. I still think his best position will be in the secondary, but I could see him as a receiver, too. He had a tremendous year and it's nice to see that he's getting the recognition for it beyond this immediate area.
Looks like that's a wrap for this week. Thanks for letting me off easy! We'll be back next Tuesday to see if there are more questions.
