(KMAland) -- Hey, it’s a Tuesday Football Tuesday. Yesterday, it was supposed to be Monday Football Monday, but I forgot to post the picks. Derek went 3-0 with Bennington, Howells-Dodge and Kenesaw winning state championships. Ryan was 2-1 and Trevor went 1-2. Add those to the 12 from Saturday where Derek went 11-1, Trevor went 10-2 and Ryan finished 8-4, and we have this for the latest standings:

Derek: 191-95 (.668)

Ryan: 189-96 (.663)

Trev: 164-94 (.636)
