Patrick Thomas beats Noell, wins Sermet's gift card

Patrick Thomas is this week’s winner of the Football Pick ‘Em. Eighteen contestants beat Noell Smith but Patrick was the only one to pick 11 games correctly.

Patrick works at Blackbaud and lives on Daniel Island with his wife Tracey and their golden retriever, Maddux. He explained that his wife is on staff with Young Life and together they lead Wyldlife on Daniel Island.

“I play the pick ‘em because I love football and getting to pick the games, and it gives me a reason to watch every game,” he said.

Sponsor Stephen Bartus recently changed jobs and could no longer sponsor the contest - Daniel Island News publisher Sue Detar is his replacement for the remainder of the competition.

Each week from now until the Super Bowl, readers will be given the opportunity to “Beat the Sponsor” and to win great prizes. We will email a link to the survey each Tuesday via a Daniel Island News eblast and we will also put the URL link on our Facebook page and here in the paper. To be eligible to win, you must select your entries online by noon on Friday. There is no cost to enter. If you’d like to be added to our eblast, please send your email address to

To enter, go to and fill out your ballot.

Each week, we will also include a running win-loss record for each of our sponsors and the paper will donate $500 to the charity of choice of the sponsor who has the best overall win-loss record at the end of the season. Rosie Stieby remains in the lead but Brad Rose jumped into second this week and is close behind.

This week you compete against Brad Rose of Palmetto Custom Carts for an opportunity to win a $50 gift certificate to Vespa.
