Huron League Thoughts and Questions

Looks like SMCC and Giarmo got the best of Al Romano who is one of the best coaches in the state. Maybe Giarmo is too!

Was that a good win for Milan? Marshall is a solid program, but some say no since the departure of legendary coach Rich Hulkow left for the college ranks four years ago.

Looks like GI's Andrew Mitroka is fully healed. Look for him to play some defense this week if needed.

Nice comeback win for the Jets. Although Adrian was 2-7 last season, they handled Airport and returned a good portion of their line up.

Huron got a win, but Summit needs to open with someone like Annapolis or Flat Rock.

Riverview spanked Garden City who is favored by some to win their red division of the Western Wayne Athletic Conference.

I was surprised that Ida routed Jefferson.

Flat Rock looked 100% better than last year. I'm not sure where a win will come from though.

Best offensive performance week 1? Best defensive performance?

A few transfers around the league had a positive effect on their teams

Milan/Riverview should be an interesting match up. GI/Huron too!

Do they just grow kids bigger these days? I saw some big kids this week.

Is it fair to start the season before schools actually starts for everyone?

Is Milan the favorite in league play or someone else?

Week One Stars

Here are a few of the standout performances from around the Huron League this week.

SMCC's Justin Carrabino rushed the ball for 239 yards on 15 carries in the Falcons impressive 35-13 victory over Tecumseh.

Junior transfer (Ypsi Lincoln) EJ Medvecz of Milan led the Big Reds with 162 yards and 3 TD's in their 26-21 win over Marshall.

Senior LB Phil Camilleri of Grosse Ile recorded 10 tackles in the Red Devils 47-0 thrashing of Annapolis on Thursday night.

Airport's Dylan Meiring carries the ball an impressive 42 times for over 200 yards while scoring 2 TD's in the Jets impressive 25-22 victory over Adrian.

Huron senior Devin Collins recorded an interception and had a 20 yards fumble recovery for a TD as the Chiefs hammered Summit Academy 49-8.

Junior transfer (Anderson) Eric Gant carried the ball for 80 yards and 2 scores in Riverview's 41-15 victory over Garden City.

While there were few bright spots for Jefferson in their 29-0 loss to Ida, Bear senior Brandon Liparoto had 6 receptions for 37 yards.

Flat Rock senior DL Eric Antolak was a force on the Ram's line during their 28-21 loss to Riverview Gabriel Richard. Antolak recorded 6 tackles which included 3 for loss.

Flat Rock/Gabriel Richard Musings

I attended the Flat Rock/Gabriel Richard game last night. I am going to throw out a few things I thought I saw.

Flat Rock is 110% better than last season.

Nice crowd for a Thursday night in August.

GR's junior QB Jabob Lipetzky was the difference in the game.

Flat Rock DT/OT Eric Antolak will play college football.

That forward lateral call in the 1st half should have been ruled an incomplete pass. It wasn't even close.

I enjoyed rooting for my Alma Mater last night.

Flat Rock Freshmen DT Mason Hamilton is a load to handle (6-3, 240lbs)

Absolutely perfect night for football last evening.

GR's senior RB Tyler Blasczak should touch the ball 20 times per game.

Flat Rock sophomore  RB/DB Dontel Hampton is going to be a very good player.

The FR/Huron rivalry is already on this fall after Huron's players sat with the GR student section.

Flat Rock didn't appear to run the same formation on offense the entire 1st quarter.
