Football Picks/Week 2: Yes there's that old adage, "The biggest improvement is between weeks one and two." Let's hope so after a disappointing 2-3 start last week, it appears that the so-called "prognosticator" was in early season form.

Reeltown at Dadeville: The Matt Johnson era began with a home loss to rival Notasulga last week. Another rivarly game comes this week against the Tigers, losers against Lafayette last week. Dadeville has won seven of the last eight against the Rebels. DHS 26, RHS 12.

Elmore County at Alabama Christian: The Eagles have already matched their win total from last season with a win on opening week. ACA has not surpassed the five-win mark since 2009. ECHS 42, ACA 14.

Prattville at Stanhope Elmore: The Lions gave up 55 to Wetumpka last week and nearly came back to win it. I'm not sure if Prattville will be a 7A contender this year. I won't be surprised if the Mustangs have a shot in the end. PHS 34, SEHS 21.

Opelika at Auburn: The "Baby" Tigers pulled out the fleaflicker to avoid a Carver upset last week. The Bulldogs seem to be for real again in 2015. OHS 24, AHS 17.

W.S. Neal at Tallassee: Tallassee copied its performance from a year ago (Notasulga 26-0) in its opening game shutout last week at Russell County. Plus, Casey Baynes threw for 150 yards. Say what?!

The Eagles went 8-2 during the regular season and fell in the first round to Munford 20-0 last year. Friday will be their first game of the season and their first time facing Tallassee. THS 20, WSN 14.
