Omission in Football Showdown winners

Michael Lee of Nederland went 14-1 in Week 10 of The News’ Football Showdown, which appears each Tuesday in section B.

Lee’s name was inadvertently omitted from the announcement of winners in Tuesday’s edition. Lee’s record matched Yolanda Dickerson of Port Arthur and Perry Lockett of Groves.
