Prep Football Picks: Week I

Posted by: $author under Minnesota boys football Updated: September 1, 2010 - 6:48 PM

This segment of the Preps Insiders blog used to belong former colleague and prep sports guru John Millea, who is now plying his prodigious skills for the Minnesota State High School League. I can’t replace him; I can only occupy the same space.

 

Because it’s Week 1 of the 2010 season, I’ve broken up the Top 20 into categories to give a semblance of reason to the selections:
• Metro Top 10
• 2009 State Champions (Cretin-Derham Hall and Totino-Grace are listed among the Top 10)
• Teams In Difference Conferences
• Games That Interest Me.

 

 

One note: While Eden Prairie is currently No. 2 in the Metro Top 10, I did not include them because the Eagles are splitting up their squad and playing two games Friday in Winnipeg, Canada. The games will be played by Canadian football rules, which throws a wrench into the works. Will skates be used? Is the field measured in meters? Do teams wear fur jerseys? Is it legal to tackle by grabbing a mullet? There’s just too much to consider.
