High school football predictions: Week 7
Jadaveon Clowney wasn’t the only person to take last weekend off.
The Post and Courier’s Phil Bowman was so confident with his picks last week that he took Friday night off. He traveled to Chicago to see his beloved Buckeyes play.
But the picks? Oh yeah, Bowman was 6-0 for the week, marking the second time in six weeks that he achieved perfection.
Meanwhile, ABC News 4’s Dean Stephens struggled after going 5-1 in Week 5. He was just so-so last week with a 3-3 record.
Hard to believe that some teams have only three games left on the schedule. Yes, time flies when you savor football season.
Here are this week’s picks:
