WEEK TWO high school football picks

by Chris Conley

EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU-WSAU) Here are my football picks for week two:

Both the Evergreens and Wisconsin Rapids have things to improve on after week one losses. But Everest was 14-seconds away from a win against a tougher opponent. Rapids' first half against Wausau-East was ugly. The Red Raiders had only 6 first downs, and their quarterback may have been dinged on the last play of the game. I'm picking Everest for a road win.

Marshfield may be down from last year, and Wausau-East is riding high after a come-from-behind win. The Lumberjacks still have a lot of holes to fill; Marshfield will win at home.

Maybe Wausau-West is better than last year, and maybe SPASH is only an average team. West lost on a game-ending missed field goal against the Panthers last year. They have lots of motivation to turn the tables; West is my pick.

In other games:

I'll take Superior over Merrill;

Mosinee over Sheboygan Falls;

Edgar over Auburndale

Stratford to beat Colby

Marathon over Dodgeville

Antigo will beat Menomonee, Mich, and

Athens over Wausau-Newman

My record last week: 7-2
