Having some fun with Page News & Courier's Randy Arrington & Bill Meade

Bill Meade was kind enough to invite me to join the group of area sports fans that pick the winners of a combination of area high school, college and NFL games each week for our Page News and Courier. Bill is the Sports Editor at our counties weekly paper and Randy is the Editor and Chief. Bill let me know that Randy is the defending champ and is looking to repeat this season.

The "Pigskin Picks" appear in the Sports section of the Page News & Courier each week accompanied by our previous results. There are a Panel of 6 Prognosticators each week and Bill finds one Guest Picker as well. The opening guest is Shawn Seal and Bill, Randy and I are joined for the year by Kevin Bush, Page Meadows and Nerissa Viafora.

I had to pause for a moment there as I looked at the name Nerissa Viafora. I was wondering why that named looked so familiar to me. It took a minute but then I remembered why- I was working on a story about Coach Alan Knight of PCHS and Mrs. Viafora's daughter (Megan) was a 2008 PCHS grad that played / starred for Knight's softball team...
