WRSCradio.com sports commentator Mark Reeves not only won the 2009 Press Soothsayer championship by having the best record picking high school, college, and professional football games, he also set a new all-time record.
When the Bowling Green Falcons defeated the Buffalo Bulls on a last minute touchdown in a nationally-televised football game, it sent Reeves over the top. Reeves finished 120-28 in his picks, which at 81.1 percent is one-tenth of a percentage point better than the 81.0 mark set by the sports editor writing this column when soothsayer picks first began in 2001.
Reeves broadcasts Clay sports for the internet broadcast company and is a long-time statistician for Clay football. Following Reeves, in order, were Press contributing writer Mark Griffin (118-30), writer A.J. Szozda (115-33), writer Jeffrey D. Norwalk (113-35), broadcaster Al Singlar (112-36), broadcaster Rick Waldron (111-37), writer Scott Calhoun (108-40), and writer Deb Wallace (106-42).
