A Bruceton resident is the winner of the weekly football contest and takes home the $25 cash prize as well as bragging rights for the week.
Bradley Reed of 80 Old Bruceton Road tied with Don Caperton of Camden with only one miss each out of the 16 contest games. He wins first place via the high point tiebreaker rule with a guess of 56. Caperton was close at 61. Huntingdon galloped past Perry County 56-6 for the most points any one team scored.
Reed’s only miss was LSU’s upset victory over Georgia. Had Caperton foresaw Tennessee upsetting nationally-ranked Auburn he would have turned in a perfect card and won first place.
Close behind, for honorable mention with two misses each were Mike Hensley and Thomas Reed.
There are plenty of good sponsors on the contest page to spend the winnings so check those out.
