Friday Night Victors Poll

Please take the time to vote in our first poll of the 2018 football season. Our poll is to your left. Who will win the Huron League this season?

Airport: The Jets finished 2-5 in the league last season and 4-5 overall. Plenty of talent in Carleton and the coaching (Jim Duffy 2nd year) should be better.

Flat Rock: The Rams finished with their best record in a generation as they finished 5-2 in the Huron League and 7-3 overall. Heavy graduation losses in Flat Rock, but excellent coaching (Buck Reaume) will no doubt continue.

Grosse Ile: 2017 was a rebuilding year on the island as the Red Devils finished 2-5 in the league and 2-7 overall. GI boast arguably the best defensive player (John Blanzy) and best coach (Jon Bodner) in the Huron League.

Huron: Chief fans are still scratching their heads after a 4-3 league finish and a 5-5 overall campaign last season. This year could be addition by subtraction (smh), stars are gone, but talent and depth remain for a 1st year head coach (Chad Smith).

Jefferson: The Bears finished 0-9 for only the second time in school history in 2017. The defense was adequate, but the Bears must find a way to score this season for their 2nd year Head Coach (Gene Gennoe).

Milan: The Big Reds finished 5-2 in the league last season and 5-5 overall as they battled injuries all year. If Coach (Jesse Hoskins) can find some linemen to go with the best duo (Hunter Aeschbacker/Tristen Hines) in the league then Milan will be in the hunt.

Riverview: The Pirates won the Huron League last season with a 6-1 record while finishing 11-2 overall and making it to the state semi-finals. Graduation took a toll on Riverview, but don't feel sorry for the defending champs or Coach Mac (Derek McLaughlin). Plenty of big time talent returns for the Bucs.

SMCC: The Catholics finished the league season at 4-3 and finished at 7-5 overall after advancing to the regional final. SMCC seemingly got better every game last season. Don't expect another 5 loss season from Coach (Adam Kipf's) Falcons.

Please vote (poll is to the left) and tell us down below your thoughts.

Player Profiles Coming Soon.......

Last year we did player profiles on Friday Night Victors. This year we are switching it up a bit and will do videos. Each player will do a video of themselves and submit it to us. Obviously these aren't professionally done, but it gives you an opportunity to see and hear from some of the players around the coverage area.

We have videos coming in right now and will get them posted as they come in. If you have a video to send over or are interested, reach out to us at Friday Night Victors and we will get you all the necessary info.

Friday Night Victors Thoughts and Questions

Welcome aboard Frank! FNV fans, you are in for a real treat!

Airport might have bit off more than they can chew with Monroe.

Any Bedford people actually read what we write?

Carlson playing Woodhaven in week 1 ought to be fun.

Dundee will be very young this season.

Does hope turn into wins for Erie Mason this season?

Does my Alma Mater reload or fall back into obscurity?

Grosse Ile is my Huron League sleeper as well.

Huron? I have no clue.

Don't care what anyone says, I doubt that I will pick against Ida at any point during the regular season.

Things will be better on the beach this season. They have to be, right?

I wonder how many players Milan will have this year? Can they stay healthy?

Should I try and see a Trojan game live this year?

Riverview lost a ton of talent, but they still have some very very good players.

I wish the Falcons would stop ducking people and just schedule a game in week 1. (just kidding people)

Summerfield? Why?

Whiteford? Why not?

Who's got it better than us? Not again! SMH

Really hard to root for Michigan State these days.

Any player questions you Coach Patricia? Flash your Super Bowl Rings!

Dearborn Advanced Tech, a first year football program, is looking for JV opponents for this season.
