This week’s Thursday Pick ‘Em show opens with a mini-emergency pod as hosts Chace Bryson and Ben Enos both share their reactions to the retirement announcement of Pittsburg High coach Victor Galli. Then they get down to usual Thursday business by diving into some NorCal football picks for what should be a wild week of action across the region.
For the first time ever, Chace and Ben unknowingly end up with the same three main picks from the slate of key matchups. They differ on one of them — and it’s the big one: No. 4 De La Salle-Concord at No. 11 Clayton Valley-Concord. Coach Eidson provides an eventful visit. Not only does he make his three picks for the week, but the hosts also indulge him by letting him talk horse racing and the upcoming Breeders Cup. And lastly, “Dumb Football” returns with Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields in the crosshairs.
