The Deseret News Prep Grid Picks Contest launched along with the 2008 high school football season last week, and Shaun Edwards of Layton was nearly perfect in winning the first contest.

Edwards, along with four other people, picked 11 of 12 games correctly. Edwards won the contest on the tiebreaker by guessing 24 points scored in the West Jordan-Lehi game in the Jaguars' 2-0 win. He wins $50 and a Grid Picks T-shirt.

Six runners-up each receive a Grid Picks T-shirt. They are David Wursten, Orem; Justus Swensen, Millville; Ian Eyre, Ogden; Eric Eyre, Ogden; Marce Wilson, West Jordan; and Cameron Hall, Cottonwood Heights.

This week's contest will launch today at noon. To enter, click on the Grid Picks link at
