Laurel/Seaford Star sports predictions: week 1 High school football- Milford at Sussex Tech- Tech 21-20 Seaford at Snow Hill- Seaford 21-17 Delmar at St. Frances- Delmar 28-20 Laurel at Hodgson- Laurel 21-20- With last year’s seniors moving on in life, it is tough to say who will do good this year. I am going to stick with the local teams, for this week at least. Woodbridge at Wilmington Friends- Woodbridge 17-13 High school field hockey- Seaford at Sussex Tech- Seaford 4-2 NFL- Washington Redskins at New York Giants- Giants 21-20 Cincinnati at Baltimore- Cincinnati 31-14- Neither one of these Daniel Richardson teams had great seasons last year, but I think Cincy is more probable to bounce back this year. St. Louis at Philadelphia- Philadelphia 28-14- I think we are starting this season off with a win. High school football- Milford at Sussex Tech-Sussex Tech 24STAR TEAM OF THE WEEK- Shown (l to r) are the 14U Delaware Roadrunners who recently placed second in the Challenge of Champions Tournament in Georgetown: back row- manager Ed Zitvogel II, Bridgeville, Tyler Absher, Delmar, Jordan Stanley, Seaford, Paul Elliott, Laurel, Trey Tyndall, Laurel, Chris Conaway, Georgetown, Connor Cooper, Seaford, Sammy Walls, Federalsburg, and Brooks Cahall, Seaford; front row- Edward Zitvogel, Bridgeville, Brent Cooper, Laurel, Josh Gorney, Milford, Jacob Williams, Greenwood, Casey Zitvogel, Bridgeville, Hunter Absher, Seaford, and Tim Affayroux, Frederica.

10 Seaford at Snow Hill- Seaford 21-7- I’m picking Seaford just because I hope Seaford has a good start. Delmar at St. Frances- Delmar 28-3- Delmar’s record last year was 10-1-0 overall. Delmar graduated Matt Campbell but returning players should fill role nicely. Laurel at Hodgson- Hodgson 41-6- Hodgson is ranked #1 in the state and is the defending state champion. Although the Silver Eagles graduated some key seniors the team remains strong with reLynn Schofer turning all-state players. Woodbridge at Wilmington Friends- Wilmington Friends 28-7 High school field hockey- Seaford at Sussex Tech- Sussex Tech 4-3 NFL- Washington Redskins at New York Giants- New York Giants 21-17 Cincinnati at Baltimore- Cincinnati 26-21 St. Louis at Philadelphia- Philadelphia 28-10- I always choose the Eagles. High school football- Milford at Sussex Tech- Milford 28-21 Seaford at Snow Hill- Seaford 20-12- Look for the Jays to pick up their first win under first year head coach Darnell Savage. Delmar at St. Frances- Delmar 35-21 Delmar has to travel to Baltimore against an athletic but inexperienced team. Look for a close game early on. Laurel at Hodgson- Hodgson 28-24- Even a close loss would be a good sign for the Bulldogs against this upstate power. Woodbridge at Wilmington Friends- Woodbridge 21-17 High school field hockey- Seaford at Sussex Tech- Tech 3-2 Mike McClure NFL- Washington Redskins at New York Giants- New York Giants 28-17- The defending Super Bowl champs have an easy one in the opener, but don’t expect a repeat this year. Cincinnati at Baltimore- Cincinnati 35-20 St. Louis at Philadelphia- Philadelphia 24-21- The Eagles have the home field advantage, but don’t look for it to be an easy win.
