Jim Roseman wins with perfect entry in NSP Football Contest


Jim Roseman of Eldridge had all the games right, and hit the tiebreaker of 52 on the nose – a perfect entry all around – to win the $50 first prize in Week No. 3 of the North Scott Press Football Contest.

Mike Fedderson of Davenport won second and $25 with all games right and a tiebreaker of 48, while Alec Clark of Burlington and Nolan Mossage of Omaha split the third-place prize and won $5 each with all games right and tiebreakers of 47.

Brian Roseman of Bettendorf had all game right and a tiebreaker of 45.

Twelve who missed one made the “A” Honor Roll: Ken Kashmarek Judy Bergert, Mike Mossage, Marty Lillis, Dale Bergert, Andrew Kashmarek, Tom Janoski, Brian Wood, Jill Johnston, Matt Costello, Richard Clark, Mary Kashmarek and Scott Kashmarek.

Thirty-three missed three. For what it’s worth, only four of 103 entrants picked Wahlert to beat North Scott in the game that wasn’t played due to COVID. The West Liberty-Tipton game wasn’t played, either.

Games most commonly missed were  West Branch over Wilton, Miami over Louisville and Boston College over Duke.

Other winners: Assumption over DeWitt Central, Pleasant Valley over Davenport Central, Bettendorf over Davenport North, Muscatine over Davenport West, Oklahomoa State over Tulsa, Louisiana over Georgia State, Notre Dame over South Florida, Clemson over Citadel, UCF over Georgia Tech, Miami over Louisville, North Carolina State over Wake Forest, and Pittsburgh over Syracuse.
