I’m delighted to announce that I’ve taken the opportunity to yet again look like an idiot by making predictions for every round of the District One tournament. I’m doubly delighted to announce that the Daily Local’s Andy Edwards has also decided to make this venture with us. He can be reached at @DLNAndyEdwards on Twitter if you’re mad, bros.

So here are both mine and Andy’s picks for District One.

There you have it. I strongly debated between picking Strath Haven over Garnet Valley as my upset special of the first round, but ultimately decided against it. Andy and I both have three Central League teams in the final five. He likes Ridley, I like Garnet Valley. We’ll probably both be wrong because that’s what sportswriters do. They predict inaccurate things. Let the games begin.
