Every Thursday, members of the SanFranPreps.com staff, as well as a couple other local media members, will make predictions on the weekend’s games featuring our local San Francisco teams. Please feel free to make your own picks in the comment section and discuss the week’s games.

Another full slate of games this week and a few potential upsets.

As Bonta learned last week, this competition can be ruthless. He went an admirable 6-2 last week, but fell from second place all the way to fifth. But the competition is still very tight in the top five spots.

Things could get shaken up considerably this week as the only consensus picks Washington over Lowell, St. Ignatius over Riordan and Crystal Springs Uplands over Stuart Hall.

The picks are listed below along with everyone’s overall and Week 4 records, in order of the standings.
