Are you ready to pick some football?

 With the high school football season approaching, we looked around the office and noticed that youngsters Ken Karrson, Jeff Vorva and Anthony Nasella have more than 75 years worth of sportswriting experience between them.

  So we figured that with all of that knowledge, we would pick the outcomes of high school and local college football games starting with the Aug. 29 edition of the Sports Southwest section.
  But you can try to get in on the fun as well. For the nine weeks of the high school football season, we invite one reader per week to try to out-pick the so-called experts.

Put “Football Picks” in the subject line and give us your name, hometown, phone number, a little personal background (What you do for a living. Did you play football? Do you just love the sport?, etc.) and a spiffy jpeg photo of yourself. There are no prizes except for bragging rights, which are priceless.
