We’ve Got a Good Feeling About Our Week 3 Coal Region Football Picks

Last week, we were happy with being in the meaty part of the curve and we may have gotten a little complacent.

After going a modest 9-4 in Week 1, our Canary Picks were only good for an 8-4 record last week.

Technically, it’s worse than Week 1 so we’re the kid in class getting a lot of help from that curve.

So this week, we aim to be the curve wrecker. We have a feeling we’re going 12-for-12 this week. So, if you’re one of our picks, it’s time to bring the A-game, go after every ball, and finish every tackle.

Here’s a look at who we’ve got coming out on top this week:

Blue Mountain will continue its hot start when it faces Route 61 rival-of-the-week Hamburg. They’re not the only 2-0 team this week that we’ve got confidence in to continue their winning ways.

Jim Thorpe, Tamaqua, Williams Valley, Pine Grove, and North Schuylkill should all come out on top this weekend.

Small Schools Crack the Win Column, Focus On the Singular

Schuylkill League’s Division 2 is having a rough start to the year. In two weeks, the 6 teams in the division have a combined 1 win.

But we think things may be looking up for the area’s small schools. We like Mahanoy Area this week in a non-league battle with Holy Redeemer. And we think Minersville will get a second win this week, too.
