The Yakima Herald-Republic sports department is opening up its Pigskin Picks to its readers online. After quckliy logging in and creating an account, each week entrants will enter their picks and go against the Herald-Republic sports staff and other entrants.

But that’s not all the winning we’re offering our readers.

We also will be debuting Prep Insider this week on It will feature a short video giving you an inside look at the YH-R Sports department and what coverage will be coming in the upcoming week.

Insider will also feature Yakima Valley sports trivia. Viewers can log on to answer the question.

Of all the correct answers, one will be randomly picked to receive a gift card from the 2nd Street Grill in downtown Yakima.

It’s our hope that these contests as well as our online feature help supplement your reading experience.

    I personally think that eisenhowers football team is truely ranked wayy to low. Thoes boys are a great football team. My son is at West Valley. And he has been playing IKE and Davis his whole life, and there is no way Davis should be ranked higher than Eisenhower.
