A pick that might actually be right


Late in August, before the season even started, I picked the Lake City Timberwolves to win the Idaho 5A football title. It’s the one good pick I made all year.

Now the top-ranked T-Wolves (11-0) have to win one more game to fulfill that not-so-bold prediction. And it will come against the second-ranked team in the state, Highland of Pocatello (10-1) on Friday night at 7 in the Kibbie Dome.

Greg Lee has a look back at LC’s semifinal win and a look ahead to Friday. He also has more on his Idaho Prep blog.

The Gonzaga Prep Bullpups (10-1) have moved on to Washington’s state 4A quarterfinals, and will host Eastlake (9-2) at G-Prep on Saturday at 1 p.m. Mike Vlahovich’s examines the Spokane connection for Eastlake and looks back at last weekend’s games. He also has more on his Prep Report blog.

Around the state, Rene Ferran looks back at the weekend football in the mid-Columbia area on his blog post, and finishes by taking the Columbia Basin League coaches to task for diluting the all-league honor (20 of 28 starting CBL 4A defensive backs earned some honor). Attaboy. When did special recognition for the best quit being special?

The Bellingham Herald also looked back at the weekend with special attention given to Lynden’s offensive line.
