Pick 6: Greg Lee and Sam Adams’ prep football picks of week

I’ve had better starts. Hats off to KHQ/SWX sports director Sam Adams for his opening-week victory.

Coeur d’Alene’s 44-43 loss to Bothell kept yours truly from a tie. And not even our predetermined tiebreaker – the margin of victory in the Central Valley/Ferris game – would have broken a stalemate since we both missed badly by picking CV.

Sam has reason to gloat. If you see me with a grocery bag over my head you’ll know why.

I’m either going to tighten things up this week or fall into a deeper hole.

Remember, this is for our embarrassment only.

Last week: Adams 5-1, Lee 3-3

Shadle Park vs. Ferris

(Today, Joe Albi Stadium, 4:15 p.m.)

Lee: Ferris 31-27. Albi’s new scoreboard could get a workout.

Adams: Ferris 42-34. This is a classic case of a prolific offense against a stingy defense. I’ll give the Saxons the edge here.

Mt. Spokane vs. LC

(Tonight, Albi, 7:15 p.m.)

Lee: Lewis and Clark 27-14. The Tigers will have a big bounce back.

Adams: LC 28-14. By far the toughest game to pick this week. LC got pounded by Gonzaga Prep in Week 1, but I think the Tigers will grind out a hard-fought win.

East Valley at Lakeland

(Friday, Lakeland HS, 7 p.m.)

Lee: Lakeland 24-21. The Hawks’ kicker, Cade Coffey, will be the difference.

Adams: EV 36-14. EV certainly has a lot of weapons on offense, but it’s hard to judge where Lakeland is after the Hawks opened against 5A Lewiston.

Post Falls vs. Sandpoint

(Friday, EWU, 7 p.m.)

Lee: Post Falls 34-14. The Trojans desperately need a win.

Adams: The Sandpoint offense is starting to come around, but the defense needs to get there, too. PF 35-21.

Pullman at Freeman

(Friday, Freeman HS, 7 p.m.)

Lee: Pullman 20,-14. Another great GNL/NEA matchup, but the GNL prevails.

Adams: Freeman 28-14. I’m sticking on the Scotties train. If they start believing they can win, all of those offseason workouts will have paid off.

Skyline at Coeur d’Alene

(Friday, CdA HS, 8 p.m.)

Lee: CdA 40-36. CdA earns redemption after last year’s humiliating defeat.

Adams: CdA got blasted by Skyline last year (71-20), but that was with Max Browne at quarterback. I have the Vikings getting payback on their home turf. CdA 48-35.
