Football season is here again, so that means it’s time to put on the prognosticating caps and take part in The TD’s annual Football Forecast. Here’s one man’s opinions.
1. Hoxie at Walnut Ridge. The Mustangs have dominated the series in the last few years, but the Bobcats pulled of an incredible fourth-quarter rally to earn a tie last year. I’m going with the 3A Mustangs over the 2A Bobcats in another close one.
2. Troy at Arkansas. Troy won’t be a pushover, but the Hogs should win by a couple of touchdowns.
3. Southside Batesville at Westside. Other than the two local schools, I really don’t follow high school football that closely. When in doubt, go with the home team.
4. Arkansas State at Texas. Steve Roberts has done a terrific job at ASU. He has the Indians competing for the Sun Belt title each year and even took the Indians to a bowl game a couple of years ago. ASU will play hard and represent themselves well at Austin, but the Longhorns will win by a bunch.
5. Corning at Rector. Corning should win this Clay County showdown.
6. Western Carolina at Alabama. Bama by a bunch.
7. East Poinsett County at Marked Tree. Marked Tree.
8. Kansas State at Auburn. Auburn easily.
9. Marshall at Mountain View. See No. 3 above.
10. Ole Miss at Memphis. This is usually a close game that goes down to the wire. I pick Ole Miss in a squeaker.
11. Trumann at Hughes. Trumann easily.
12. Georgia Tech at Notre Dame. It’s always tough to pick against the Irish at home.
13. Palestine-Wheatley at Barton. Barton, I guess.
14. Eastern Kentucky at Kentucky. Kentucky will roll.
15. Valley View at McCrory. Goin’ with the home team.

My son, Briar, officially became a teenager on Aug. 24. I no longer see a baby when I look at him. I see a clever young man full of laughter and mischief trying to find his way in this world.
I realized this week exactly how much of a teenager he has become when I asked if he needed me to go over his algebra homework and he replied, “No, I don’t think you’ll know how to do it anyway.”
I was also told that I wasn’t the computer whiz he thought I was, while he was doing his computer technology homework. This one really hit home. While I don’t claim to be a computer whiz, I definitely know my way around a computer. After all … it’s my job.
Although I have seen some changes in his attitude, and he now thinks he is smarter than I am, one thing remains constant… his kindness and compassion for others. He is an exceptional young man and I’m very proud of him.
I know that he will continue to spread his wings. I hope that I have and continue to set a good example for him.
