Bay Area News Group high school football picks: Week 8, fall 2021

With four weeks left in the regular season, our all-for-fun high school football picks competition has finally gotten competitive.

Evan Webeck, a rookie sensation and seasonlong leader, had an off week, opening the door for yours truly and two-time defending champion Mike Lefkow to narrow the deficit.

I went 13-4 in Week 7 to Webeck’s 10-7.

Webeck’s lead is two games over me and six over Lefkow, who went 11-6 in Week 7.

We picked 16 more games this week, including San Ramon Valley-Clayton Valley Charter, Serra-Valley Christian, Burlingame-Terra Vova and Monte Vista-Amador Valley.

Be sure to check out the video as Lefkow and I discuss the ramifications of De La Salle’s win last week at Folsom and recent recruiting news.

If you want just the picks, scroll down to see who we’re taking.
