Swinford wins Pigskin Picks finale

February 7, 2015

Robert Swinford came in last, so to speak. He won the final Poteau Daily News' Pigskin Picks Contest for the 2014 football season. He correctly predicted New England to defeat Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX last weekend, and he won the tiebreaker by only missing the final score by a point.
The Patriots held off the Seahawks 28-24.
Swinford won $50 for his winning ballot, since $25 of that was a carryover from the week before since the Pigskin Picks Contest for the Pro Bowl had to be thrown out.
