After sitting the first couple of plays out, Durangoan Paul Folwell entered the Week 4 Gridiron Green fresh as a daisy.
He skipped Weeks 1 and 2, went 7-for-16 in Week 3, then sprang for a Week 4 victory with 14 out of 15 picks.
He’s no Dane Adams, however.
Nationally, the Woodburn, Ind., resident scored a perfect 15-for-15 in Week 4.
And I’m no Folwell, although I did rebound from a disappointing Week 3 with a 10-5 effort to push my winning percentage north of .500 – 32-30.
Weeks 2 and 3 winners, Amy Laws and Victoria Townsend, share the overall Gridiron Green lead with 42 points.
Townsend’s 42 leads four players by one point in the Gridiron Gold rankings.
