High school football players pick Super Bowl XLVI
It’s Super Bowl Sunday which, in my opinion, is the greatest day of the year.
Since I’ve got Super Bowl Fever, I decided to contact some Oklahoma high school football players and get their predictions for the big game.
I got several responses, so I’ll add new responses to this post as I get them up until gametime. Some gave reasons for their picks and others just gave scores.
As it stands, the Patriots lead the picks 16-12 among the high school players.
And for the record, I’m taking the Giants 27-17.
Blake Belcher, Guthrie: Patriots 34-31
Graham Bennett, Casady: Patriots 24-17
“I love the Giants … but once (Tom) Brady gets going there’s nothing you can do.”
Jared Benway, Edmond North: Patriots 28-21
“Tom Brady is too good.”
Joel Blumenthal, Deer Creek: Giants 28-17
“(The Giants) have a better D and I don’t really like Tom Brady too much.”
Austin Brooks, Oklahoma Christian School: Patriots 21-17
“Tom Brady will have a big game and the defense will step up. Also, being a Cowboys fan, I just can’t stand to see the Giants win.”
Kai Callins, Guthrie: Patriots 35-24
“Tom Brady has too many options.”
Landry Chappell, Guthrie: Giants 28-24
Casey Curtis, Putnam City: Giants 31-27
Joel Davis, Midwest City: Patriots 35-24
“The Giants haven’t really seen a big powered offense with tons of formations. That’ll keep them off balance. The only way the Giants will have a shot is if their front four can get consistent pressure to keep Brady moving.”
Luke Davis, Guthrie: Patriots 27-21
“Brady is too wise for the Giants D.”
Hunter Dinkines, Deer Creek: Patriots 38-27
“I think it’s gonna be a good game for New England. The game is in the hands of the Giants D line. But I think Victor Cruz and Welker/Gronkowski should be fun to watch.”
James Flanders, Midwest City: Giants 31-24
“(The Giants) have a great quarterback and a wonderful defense.”
Justice Hansen, Edmond Santa Fe: Giants 27-20
“If Hernandez and the Gronk are going out for passes, I think Justin Tuck and the boys up front will cause problems. And if they stay in, that will kill the Patriots’ offense. Hakeem Nicks and Ahmad Bradshaw will have a big game!”
Ry Huff, Edmond Memorial: Giants 27-24
