Play the game, pick the teams, win the money

Jerry Lott receives his $100 prize from Under Dawg owner Claudine Thomas.

It’s your turn to sign up and hopefully win $100 playing Webster Parish Journal’s Football Pick’em Contest just like Jerry Lott of Sibley.

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

With no Thursday games on the schedule, you have until 4 p.m. Friday to get in your picks for this week’s games, Webster Parish has 3 high school teams in the playoffs. So you have at least two more chances to win.

Anyone 18 and older is eligible to participate in the contest. All it takes is an email address and a combination of skill and a little luck. Each week, parish high school teams, as well as area colleges and some pro teams are listed in the contest. And just like the Journal, there’s no cost to enter.

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