Heading into the final week of our Grid Picks, I guess 13 games is a bit too much to make up on leader Andy Steinmetz at this point, so I guess I'll just have to settle on setting my sights on trying to pass Emmett McCall and staying ahead of TJ Engle and Bob Ford. With a 10-game cushion over Ford, I think I can safely say I won't finish last unless I completely collapse.

November 23, 1939 A second-quarter touchdown pass from Frank Priggins to Charley "Broomy" Melley proves to be the difference as Coaldale pulls out a 6-2 Turkey Day win over rival Lansford in a game played before 6,000 fans. A 23-yard run by "Teeler" Jabbo sets up the 15-yard scoring toss, which comes on a fourth down play. Priggins also interceps a desperation pass by the Panthers during the game's final minute to secure the win.
