High school football picks: Two titles on the line Saturday
Alaska’s high school football season is down to the final two weeks. On Saturday, the small-school and medium-school divisions will crown champions, while the large-school classification concludes next weekend. I nearly tossed a perfect week in the first round of the playoffs by going 7-1. The only game I misfired on was West Anchorage’s win over North Pole. That runs my season total to 60-11, good for a .845 winn...

One play decided Kodiak’s season
Pistol able right 437 max.  That was the play Kodiak quarterback Josh Yavorsky called in the huddle on the final play of the Bears’ Week 5 game at Kenai.  In layman’s terms — a desperation Hail Mary heave to the end zone. With four seconds left in the game and Kodiak on Kenai’s 21-yard-line, Yavorsky dropped back and floated the ball in the direction of Fredy Sorto. Sorto plucked the ball from the sky at the one a...
