Link is hot for Week 5

The link is now hot for this week’s Football Pick’em Contest, sponsored by Under Dawg’s Sports Grill and Yocom Law Firm. Last year’s contest was so successful, we are adding to it.

Every week, local high school football games, four college teams and four pro teams will be on the ballot, which will include tie-breakers based on total points of two selected teams will be posted on the Webster Parish Journal. And just like the Journal, there’s no cost to enter. 

Each weekly winner over the life of the contest will be on the receiving end of $100 and will have their photo taken at our title sponsor Under Dawgs Sports Grill, the gathering place featuring a home-field atmosphere.

Anyone 18 and older is eligible to participate. All it takes is an email address and a combination of skill and a little luck.

Signing up for the contest only takes a couple of minutes. Log on to and follow the instructions.

The contest opens on Tuesdays and remains open until 4 p.m. each Friday before the listed games (unless there are Thursday games). Weekly winners will be notified and announced in the following week in Webster Parish Journal.
