Week 1: My 5 year old daughter’s expert high school football picks

Addie prognosticating

Addie, taking her prognosticating duties extremely seriously.

It’s that time of year again, the high school football season is upon us in full force tonight. Oly Sports will be at the Shelton/Tumwater game tonight broadcasting for Shelton radio station KMAS. This season we will bring to you The Countdown to Kickoff beginning at 6:00 PM. This week, we look at the Shelton team, talk to Tumwater offensive coordinator Jamie Weeks, preview the 3A Narrows League, the North Mason and Mary M. Knight seasons, talk about the other Olympia area teams and give our predictions for the week’s games and talk with Shelton head coach Matt Hinkle.

Listen to The Countdown to Kickoff to get our take on the games, but even better, my five year old daughter, Addie, is back to give you her picks on each of this week’s games. Here is the entire schedule, complete with radio information and Addie’s expert, scientific picks…
