It’s unanimous: New England over Philadelphia

Scott Savoie

Bear River football coach

“I gotta go with New England. I just love everything about those guys – they are really a complete team with a tough defense … I’m not a T.O. fan by any means, but Philly worked really hard to get to the Super Bowl and paid its dues. It will be a good game, but I think the Patriots will win by two touchdowns.”

Dave Humphers

Nevada Union football coach

“I’d like to see the Patriots win, but only because of the Sacramento area athletes like Tedy Bruschi and Tom Brady. Bruschi played at Roseville High School. His last high school game was in 1990 against NU for the City Championship and Brady went to Serra High in San Mateo. I always enjoy watching the success of the local and surrounding area athletes.”

Michael Fredrickson

Bear River quarterback

“Even though I wanted the Falcons to win, I think the Patriots will take it all because they are so strong all around … Between the two quarterbacks I like McNabb better because he’s more agile and can run the ball better. He’s more of an athlete.”

Nick Cartan

Nevada Union quarterback

“As much as I wish it could have been the Cowboys, I think the Patriots will win because they’re just a better team … Between the two quarterbacks, I like Brady better because he’s a winner. He hasn’t lost a playoff game and even though he may not have all of the physical tools, he always gets the job done.”

Stacy Hicklin

The Union sportswriter

“After my summer on the Cape, the Patriots are my adopted team, next to the Pack of course, so I’ll for sure be pulling for New England to win. They’re a classy organization with a killer defense and I don’t see T.O. or McNabb standing in the way of another Super Bowl title.”
