WEEK ONE high school football picks

by Chris Conley

EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU-WSAU): Here are my high school football predictions for week 1, which starts tonight with a limited schedule and kicks into full swing on Friday.

Thursday games:

WISCONSIN RAPIDS' option will be too much for Wausau-East.

WAUSAU-NEWMAN beat Throp last season, and should do so again tonight.

Friday's games:

I think DC Everest vs. SPASH is a toss-up; I'm picking SPASH because there are more "knowns" about the Panthers than the Evergreens. I'd love to be wrong.

MARSHFIELD is my pick to beat Wausau-West, although West has a lot of returning skill players this year.

MERRILL over Onalaska

STRATFORD over Mosinee

ST MARYS over Pacelli

MARATHON over Pittsville

EDGAR over Chequamegon
