Just a few hours before kickoff last week, I did the same thing I do every year and remembered the high school football pick ‘em contest we didn’t get around to creating last year but were for sure going to do this year. So I just did it.
I threw it out on Twitter and got 19 entries (including mine and senior contributor Wes Kerr’s) for Week 0, with Richard Calhoun winning a four-way tiebreaker for the top honors. We’ll give away some Lowco swag to the weekly winners, and we’ll have a bigger prize package for the overall winner as well as a bonus for anyone who beats Team Lowco.
But I didn’t want to exclude anyone who missed the impromptu tweet, so we’re going to drop the two lowest scores for each player in the race for season-long prizes, allowing you to whiff on a week or two and still have a chance to hit paydirt. It also means a second chance for those of you who didn’t do your preseason homework and failed the first pop quiz.
If you want to get in the game, submit your Week 1 picks here!
