Week 0 is only a day away now, so we figured this would be a good time to unveil our weekly pick ’em competition.

Every Thursday morning members of our staff, as well as a couple other┬álocal media members, will make predictions on the weekend’s games featuring our local San Francisco teams.

The weekly prognosticators will be San Francisco Examiner Sports Editor Dylan Kruse and Senior Writer/Columnist Mitch Stephens, along with Editor Jeremy Balan and writers Bonta Hill, Josh Levine and Ernest Stone.

We’ll keep track of everyone’s weekly and overall records and hopefully have a lot of fun with it.

We hope you enjoy this new feature and please feel free to make your own picks in the comment section.

    I think Mitch Stephens will come the closest to his picks. S.I. isn’t nearly as good as last season so I look for Marin Catholic to run them out of town. Riordan won’t amount up to anything for years and SHC is much improved over last season, so look for them to overpower Terra Nova.

    I think all of the city teams have a shot to win this weekend even the real bad ones. Burton, Mission, Riordan, Marshall and Balboa are all playing bad teams.
