After going 6-3 in last weeks picks it is time for one last set of picks for the 2013 season.
Class 1A- I have to admit I have totally bombed my 1A picks throughout the whole tournament. So both Eastern Hancock and Tri Central would both prefer I pick against them. With that said I will pick Eastern Hancock in a nail biter.
Class 3A- Should be a great game. Can Andrean making their first state title appearance since 2004 stop the explosive Brebeuf offense led by Levante Bellamy and Aaron Banks. It has been a great year for Brebeuf winning their first sectional, regional and semi state titles. I will go with Andrean in a thriller.
Class 5A- Upstart Westfield taking on big bad Cathedral. Westfield has a great passing combination of Nick Ferrer and Devin Reece. The Irish have Ohio State bound Terry McLaurin and QB Colin Barthel. Cathedral wins their fourth in a row.
Class 2A- Ritter has no Luers waiting on the other side of the field. The Raiders and record setting QB Jake Purichia win this one over Tipton.
Class 4A- Dwenger has caught fire at the right time rolling through the playoffs. Columbus East has made their first state finals since 1979. It will be a battle of Dwenger QB Mike Fiacable vs Columbus East RB Markell Jones. Should be a great one. Flip a coin I will go with Dwenger.
Who will win the first 6A state title or should I say MIC invitational. Warren Central and Carmel met in week seven with the Greyhounds winning 21-15. Carmel Head Coach Kevin Wright is the former Warren Coach. Current Warrior quarterback Jeff George Jr. started his high career at Carmel. Plenty of intrigue in this one. I will stick with my pre season pick of Carmel.
