The Super Bowl is in the books and we have a winner for our final football contest of the 2020-21 season. It’s Tyler Thorne of Joan Circle in Salem.
Tyler missed just four games in our Super Football Contest. He missed two college bowl games, had the Saints winning the NFC and the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl, and that’s not bad for a contest that had to be entered during the week of Christmas. Several others also missed four but Tyler was the closest on the high point total, which was 55 by Oklahoma over Florida.
For his efforts Thorne will receive a $50 gift certificate from Mac & Bob’s, a large blizzard from Dairy Queen in Salem, a free oil change from Valvoline on Main Street and a year’s subscription to the Salem Times-Register. That’s a value of over $150.
Our “One for the Road” question was who would win the Super Bowl, and again that had to be determined before Christmas. Many fans picked the Chiefs and Packers but only one person picked the Buccaneers back then, Tyler Shannon of Stoutamire Drive in Salem. He’ll get a free oil change from Valvoline.
So, it was a big time for Tylers as we wrap up another football season. Or do we? High School football begins in a week and a half. –Brian Hoffman
