High school football coaches super bowl picks

Dan Bauer — BEVERLY

THE PICK: Pats, 27-25

KEY TO WIN: Limit Cruz and Hicks yards after catch. Quick routes for Pats offense; limit Giants pass rush. Pats hold on for victory

Dave Woods — BISHOP FENWICK

THE PICK: Pats, 30-23

KEY TO WIN: Pats offensive line needs to protect Brady and give him some time and hold Giants to field goals instead of touchdowns. Welker or Brady MVP

Andrew Morency — HAMILTON-WENAM

THE PICK: Pats, 24-17

KEY TO WIN: Brady Rolls

Ted Flaherty — IPSWICH

THE PICK: Pats, 30-23

KEY TO WIN: Pats need to keep Eli and those receivers off the field; sustain long TD producing drives. New England wins in a fundamentally sound game, not too flashy

Jim Rudloff — MARBLEHEAD

THE PICK: Pats, 21-20

KEY TO WIN: Pats offense needs to find just the right mix of using TE's to chip in and protect Brady, or release into a pattern. Red zone offense will be key

Jim Pugh — MASCONOMET

THE PICK: Giants 28-24

KEY TO WIN: Giants have to keep pressure on Brady and score TD's when in red zone, not FG's. Hoping for another upset like four years ago

Scott Wlasuk — PEABODY

THE PICK: Pats, 34-21

KEY TO WIN: After Brady's performance from last week, he'll come out and correct it— will have his best game. As a fellow Wesleyan University alum, can't go against Belichick

Chris Powers — PINGREE

THE PICK: Pats, 31-27

KEY TO WIN: In the end, the Patriots offense will show why they were so good all season long, and the defense will make a few key plays.

Steve Dembowski — SWAMPSCOTT

THE PICK: Pats, 27-24

KEY TO WIN: Will be a very competitive game that will probably be decided in the mid-to-late fourth quarter.

Paul Worth — North Shore Tech

THE PICK: Pats, 27-24.

KEY TO WIN: Whoever has the ball last is going to win. Both teams just have that will to hang in there, it doesn't matter what happens early in the game, they'll both be there at the end.
