Winning Prediction in Bold

Presidio Sports is thrilled to announce a new partnership with?Santa Barbara Brewing Company?forged to raise money to provide at least two scholarships for next summer’s local Junior Lifeguard program.?Every week, Presidio Sports will collect predictions from a local celebrity on the winners of NFL football games. Each correct pick will trigger a donation that will accumulate throughout the season.

Last week Olympic beach volleyball champion Todd Rogers was nearly perfect. Rogers nailed 12-of-13 winners to really set the bar high.

Professional surfer Lakey Peterson takes her turn this week predicting the winners from the NFL?s Week 9 slate of games.?Lakey herself went through the Junior Guards program as a Santa Barbara youngster. Lakey has gone on to become one of the top female surfers in the world in a young career that already includes a U.S. Open of Surfing championship and two years on the ASP World Championship Tour.

Lakey didn’t get to pick her favorite team as the San Francisco 49ers ?are on a bye this week. But she did go with the Philadelphia Eagles – the team on which family friend and former USC quarterback Matt Barkley plays for – over the Oakland Raiders. And perhaps because of the connection she feels with the sea, Lakey’s bold upset prediction of the week has the 3-4 Dolphins beating the 6-2 Bengals.

On Thursday, November 7th, Lakey will be sharing her story as the keynote speaker at Girls Inc.?s 12th annual Celebration Luncheon at the Bacara Resort.

The picks will be posted online each week and will also appear in the print weekly Santa Barbara Sentinel. The promotion will provide at least two scholarships for the seven-week summer camp that promotes fitness and an active lifestyle. For over 40 years, the Santa Barbara Junior Lifeguard program has helped develop youth with strenuous daily workouts, water safety, first aid, surf lifesaving, marine education and competition.
