Star Picking Panel

Published 10:41 pm Tuesday, November 9, 2021

It’s playoff week number two in prep play as the Star Picking Panel has been putting their heads together in picking the outcome of this week’s contests.

Unfortunately, we lost two local teams last week as Unaka was bushwhacked in the fourth quarter by Midway leading to the end of the Rangers season while Happy Valley took it on the chin on the road at Rockwood.

Eight high games are on the schedule this week with local teams Cloudland, Hampton, and Elizabethton still alive.

After last week, Randall Bennett and Austin Alexander are gridlocked for the season with identical 197-83 records.

Meanwhile, Star Sports Editor went out on the limb with this week’s picks in an effort to do some major catching up as the football swiftly passes.

So, without further adieu, here are this week’s picks by the Star Picking Panel
