With the return of high school football this weekend, The Morning Call’s Sports Writers Challenge returns.
It’s a prediction contest that asks contestants to join Keith Groler and Tom Housenick in picking a list of 10 games each weekend. The series of games will also feature a tiebreaker game that will require scoring.
A winner each week will receive a $25 coupon book from Yocco’s. The overall winner will receive 14 tickets to a 2023 IronPigs game in The Morning Call set.
Last year’s winner was retired District 11 football and basketball official Jim Haney, who led from start to finish.
This week’s competition will span 13 weeks, stretching through the regular season and the District 11 tournament, and will even include Thanksgiving games.
To register, go to the address mcall.com/itson. Selections must be made by 5pm Friday each week.
After COVID-19 wreaked havoc on the local high school football schedule in 2020 and last year, everyone involved is hoping that this year’s games will go on schedule.
