It’s also time to play High School Gridiron Picks. The contest this fall includes weekly prizes and an opportunity to win a $250 grand prize. The prizes are made available through local businesses.
It all kicks off on Friday, Aug. 30 and runs through the regular season.
In the HSGridironPicks, a player’s best eight weekly scores will be used to determine their overall score. The player with the top overall score will win a grand prize. Prizes for weekly winners can be found online at HSGridironPicks.com.
To enter the contest, go to www.HSGridironPicks.com and register first, and then make your picks. Read these FAQ from the contest website.
How does the game work?
Each week you pick who you think is going to win each game of the season.
When is the deadline to enter my picks?
You can pick the winner up to 30 minutes before the game is scheduled to start.
What if I don’t pick that week for a game?
If you don’t pick, the computer will select the most picked teams for you.
What are some features of the game?
1. We drop your worst two weeks. This is especially helpful if you started late or if you pick poorly in the playoffs where the games are worth a lot of points.
2. If you don’t pick the computer will still pick for you, but you can’t win a prize for that week.
3. Inside the “Public & Private Groups” we display an asterisk (*) next to players where the computer picked at least one game for them for the week.
4. The season has already started. Can I still play? Yes. Your picks going forward will be counted toward your score. We throw out your worst weeks so the remaining weeks count toward your overall score. If you start before week 3 you’ll be fine. If you start after week 5 you’ll be behind the others in terms of the overall season, but you could still win a prize for an individual week.
