Over/Under

For football teams in the Washington-Greene region, the 2007 season was a mixed bag.

Monessen reached the WPIAL Class A semifinals and Burgettstown won six more games than it did the previous year.

For every good, there was a couple bads.

Only one Washington County team (Fort Cherry) and one Greene County team (Jefferson-Morgan) played host in the first round of the WPIAL playoffs. Trinity and Monessen were the only area teams to win in the postseason.

So what will 2008 hold? I expect a few teams to improve though I don't see a local team besides Monessen playing for a WPIAL championship, which hasn't happened since 2001.

To have a little preseason fun, the Varsity Letters decided to put together a little Over/Under. We'll look at each team's win total from 2007 and, with the information gathered heading into 2008, predict whether the team will win more, lose more or have the same record. (2008 predictions are based on regular season.)

Not a chance in hell that Peters wins 4 games this year. Sorry, but you need an offensive line to play in AAAA, they have a shot this week against Ringold, but after that it is not going to be pretty.

Peters easily has enough talent to win their WEAK section. It's time for a new breed to run this conference.

DEVIN PECK!!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. i heard the Astros drafted you for baseball. Good luck man!!

Nah Scott I'm just going to be cracking the rotation for Kent State this year and am not yet draft eligible. Look for me in the 2010 draft class after I complete my junior year.

Mike Kovak are you going to try to pick more games correctly this season than the PG's "Fumbler?" I think you can take him and perhaps just like me you can be the new breed of high school football prognostication.

Anyone want to bet on Peters hitting those 4 wins now? Ringold was one of the only games that Peters should win and now that one is in the L column.

It's going to be a long year for the Indians.
