Friday football pick 'em
By David Auguste
We're abandoning the standings for another week as Steven Long wasn't able to make his picks. We should be back rolling next Friday, though. Taylor Walcott did return to make some picks for this week's top action. Like always, we love fan participation and we want to shout out LakeOswegoFootball for going 4-0 in round 3.
If you want to get involved, leave your picks in the comments section and we will chart your results in next week's challenge. You can also make your picks on Twitter by tweeting me @ESPNHSAuguste with who you think will win in Week 8. On to the picks.
West Linn (6-1) at No. 2 Lake Oswego (7-0)
No. 10 Siuslaw (6-0) at North Bend (7-0)
Mountain View (6-1) at Bend (6-1)
Lebanon (6-1) at Corvallis (5-2)
Lake Oswego — Steven may be absent from today's picks, but he'll make his presence felt on the field tonight. I can see him having another huge touchdown game as the Lakers look to clinch the Three Rivers League crown.
Siuslaw — Expect a lot of scoring in this one as each team is putting up more than 40 points a contest.
Mountain View — The Cougars' are averaging 43.7 points a contest this season. Bend will have a tough time keeping pace.
Corvallis — Lebanon has yet to face a defense with as many playmakers as Corvallis has.
Lake Oswego — I've seen them play on TV and their stats are crazy. They're loaded. I don't think this one will be a blowout, though. Alex Matthews or Steven Long will be player of the game.
Siuslaw — No reason.
Mountain View — The two brothers, Jacob and Cody Hollister, are really good.
Corvallis — Isaac Seumalo will impact the game on defense. I doubt Lebanon has anyone big enough to guard him. He'll have some sacks tonight.
