Week 4 Wrap Up Video

Watch as Chris and Gary discuss the week 4 games. Please be sure to subscribe to our Friday Night Victors YouTube Channel.

Varsity Athletic Week 4 Players of the Week

Luke Goins, QB, Airport. The senior QB picked up right where he left off last week, as he threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns in a 41-7 win over Jefferson. Goins also rushed for 41 yards and a score to cap off a big night.

Jared Banks, RB, Monroe. After a tough loss to Jackson last week, the Trojans turned to their ground game. Banks answered the call, as he rushed for 257 yards and four touchdowns in a 39-7 win over Ann Arbor Skyline.

Kyle Naif and Joe Johnson, RB, Riverview. One week after being shut down by SMCC, the Pirates’ ground attack got cranking behind their two stars, Naif and Johnson. The duo combined for 219 yards and four touchdowns (Naif: 109 yards, TD; Johnson: 110 yards, 3 TDs). Naif also rang up 11 tackles and an interception on defense.

Ty Eitniear, QB, Whiteford. Eitniear had a hand in four of Whiteford’s nine touchdowns in a 65-0 rout of Whitmore Lake. The senior rushed for two scores and passed for two scores.

Alex Longenbarger, DL, Ida. The senior who normally plays at defensive end was moved inside to defensive tackle by head coach Jeff Potter on Friday, and the move paid dividends. Longenbarger racked up 16 tackles for the Blue Streaks in a 20-3 win over Dundee

Thoughts and Questions

Huron League lambs out of the way, Lions await.

Bedford may be out of losses.

I wish the Downriver League had divisions, I would love to see Carlson play non-league opponents.

FG's are worth 3 points, right?

You can't continually give up 40 and expect to win.

I could see Flat Rock running the table.

Is a first place finish possible for Grosse Ile in the Huron League?

Growing pains?

Difference in team speed won that game for Ida against Dundee.

I don't know what to say at this point.

I would like to see Milan and Riverview play again.


Sometimes a loss is a good thing.

For a moment I thought the Falcons snatched defeat from the jaws of victory again.

Did Summerfield play this weekend?

Can we just give Whiteford the State title again?

For the challenged, each thought is about a school in alphabetical order.

Erie Mason has lost 12 straight games to Hudson.

For Huron, Grosse Ile is the first of a brutal 5 game stretch for the Chiefs.

A win for Ida tonight against Dundee would go a long way in securing the Streaks 6th consecutive playoff birth.

Riverview is one of two Huron League schools that Milan has a losing record (9-10) against.
