SoCal Prep Legends is putting our prep experts to the test!

Each week select prep staff of the Southern California News Group will attempt to predict the outcome of SoCal’s best high school football games, which span across the Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.

You may notice that one “expert” isn’t a staff reporter, but a recognizable face and voice in the SoCal sports community, FOX Sports’ Petros Papadakis. The former Trojan football player and current co-host of AM 570’s Petros & Money Show will be SCPL’s guest picker for the 2017 season. Be sure to tune into AM 570 from 2-6 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays to hear Petros make his selections, and speak  about SCPL’s best football games.

Remember to follow @SoCalPrepLegend on Twitter, and hashtag either #SCPL or #PrepLegends to share YOUR picks with us!

Tarek Fattal, DNTarek Fattal’s Picks:
SCPL/LA Daily News, @Tarek_Fattal
Record: 0-0

-Oaks Christian at Chaminade: Oaks
I like the star power for Oaks – loaded on defense. We’ll see if the Lions can score. Going against the grain of other pickers.
-Serra (Gardena) at Narbonne: Serra
No.1 vs. No. 2 in the Daily Breeze rankings, anything goes. I like Serra.
-Los Alamitos vs. Long Beach Poly: Poly
Corral is the difference maker, Poly more talented.
-Mater Dei at Bishop Amat: Mater Dei
No-brainer
-Orange Lutheran at La Mirada: O-Lu
New coach JP Presley gets his program a win on his debut. La Mirada may give O-Lu a scare, though.
-Heritage at Great Oak: Heritage
Running back Sherod White and quarterback Devan Freedland should get the job done.
-JSerra at Corona del Mar: JSerra
QB position makes the difference in the game. Matt Robinson, headed to Montana will lead Serra to a  win. CDM under new direction at QB after Chase Garbers left to Cal.

Petros Papadakis, AM570:Fox Sports

Petros Papadakis’ Picks:
Fox Sports, @theOldP
Record: 0-0

-Oaks Christian at Chaminade: Chaminade
My only guarantee is that Ed Croson’s Chaminade Eagles will not be out-coached in this game.
-Serra (Gardena) at Narbonne: Narbonne
The Gauchos are the City Section’s best program. Can’t wait to see more Gaucho billboards
-Los Alamitos vs. Long Beach Poly: Poly
Big question is how will transfer QB Matt Corral acclimate from private Oaks Christian to public LB Poly?
-Mater Dei at Bishop Amat: Mater Dei
The Monarchs fictional school district knows no boundaries — welcome to all the new MD students who also happen to play football.
-Orange Lutheran at La Mirada: La Mirada
My upset of the week. Matadores have been under the radar for too long and OLu might be complacent.
-Heritage at Great Oak: Great Oak
Wolfpack from deep in the I.E are led by LB Jack Lamb who is a Notre Dame commit.
-JSerra at Corona del Mar: Corona del Mar
Great opportunity for Sea Kings program to get a Trinity League.
