Now that three of the nine championship games have been determined, this week’s all about the six Division I state title matchups.
Last week, Chris Brooks went 9-1 in his selections on the 615Preps Podcast, edging out Scott Burton and the Twitter voters by one game.
Brooks broke the tie for second place as Burton went 8-2, falling back into third. The Twitter voters have held on to the lead for the fourth consecutive week, and they have a two-game lead on Brooks with just two weeks remaining.
No lone wolf picks connected last week, as Burton missed his Shelbyville selection, while Kaposy dropped two such choices (Brentwood and Friendship Christian). Twitter voters were deadlocked on the Ensworth-McCallie game, taking a loss as a result. Lone wolf tries are now 16-40 for the season.
Overall, Brooks holds a one-game lead on Burton after going 22-8 last week.
