Commissioners make their football championship picks

Related Stories

Henderson County commissioners covered all four choices in their annual college football championship picks, a tradition started several years ago by County Manager Steve Wyatt.

The college football playoff includes Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia and Alabama.

"I said last year that my first son and my money went to Clemson and I had to go with Clemson," Commissioner Bill Lapsley said. "I’ll go with them again."

Grady Hawkins: "I’m going to go with one of my alma maters: Oklahoma."

Michael Edney: "We all know the Georgia Bulldogs are going to win."

Charlie Messer, who picked Alabama over Clemson last year, stayed with the Tide.

Tommy Thomson, who doesn't follow sports, also went with Alabama.

After saying, "I’m going to pull for Appalachian," Wyatt, a big Mountaineer fan, predicted an Oklahoma win.
