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.
WISCONSIN RAPIDS' option will be too much for Wausau-East.
WAUSAU-NEWMAN beat Throp last season, and should do so again tonight.
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
