I am another one that does not agree with the way your paper picks high school football games, with your so called experts. I do not have any kids on the Alpena team. They lost this week 40 to 0. When a kid reads in the local newspaper that his team has been picked to lose, what do you think runs through his mind? Why play the game we cant win? I am from down state, but I have lived in Alpena or 30 years. The newspaper where I used to live never made the players believe that they had no chance. My junior year we went undefeated. If you have to have the pick experts in your paper, change the games to College or pro games. Give the kids some hope that they do have a chance to win.
