SMCC Preview

SMCC is coming off of a 10-2 season which resulted in a second place league finish to Milan and a loss in the Division 5 Regional to Livonia Clarenceville. Falcon coach Jack Giarmo is the Dean of Huron League coaches and is entering his 17th season at his Alma Mater.

Offensively, the Falcons are led by senior signal caller Bryce Windham. He will have three capable RB's to give the ball to. Junior Justin Carrabino leads the way, but seniors John Lako and Mitchell Lamour will see just as many carries. Clearing the way on the offensive line will be Mitchell Poupard, Kyle Bausman and TE Riley Woolford. Perhaps the biggest surprise for the Falcons is that they probably have the best WR in the league in senior Travis Vuich.

Defensively is where the Falcons will need to be at their best if they are going to unseat Milan as the league champs. SMCC will be led by senior DL Trystin Robinson, senior LB Troy Hilkins and senior  safety David Howey.

While SMCC expects to be good every season, this is the year that the Falcon hopeful have been waiting for since their loss at Ford Field to Ithaca in 2010.  The Falcons have a chance to get there, but first they must face a rugged non-league schedule plus one of the more talented Huron Leagues in a few years. Prediction 8-1

Milan Preview

The Milan Big Reds are out to prove to the entire league that their fourteen game league winning streak and two consecutive league championships is no fluke. The Milan roster only includes 10 seniors, but a strong junior class gives the Big Reds reason to think a three-peat is possible.

Offensively, Milan will be led by sophomore RB Trace Lindeman who rushed for over 1,200 yards and 11 TD's as a freshman. The QB will be junior E.J. Medvecz. The transfer from Ypsi Lincoln is listed at 6-2, 225 lbs. The Big Reds had to replace a bulk of their offensive line, but have some good young players in Max Protske and Cody Brassy-Brierley.

Defensively, Milan will boast three of the better defenders in the league. Senior C.J. Duffiney is back at  at DB for the Big Reds along with junior LB Jordan Hendricks. Ypsi Lincoln transfer Cortez Gray will man another LB spot. Senior Ryan Faulkner will play defensive line and will be one of the best two way players in the league.

Milan made an effort to upgrade the non-league schedule this season which includes traditional football power Marshall and always powerful Detroit Country Day. Coach Jesse Hoskins has made a big name for himself in coaching circles and is known as a master motivator. Prediction 7-2

Grosse Ile Preview

Grosse Ile enters the season still stinging from a season that was struck hard by injuries. The Red Devils started off 3-0, but an injury to star QB Andrew Mitroka in week 4 started an avalanche of other injuries and GI ended the season at 5-4. Expectations are high for the Islanders who return a host of players who contributed last season and that includes Mitroka.

Offensively the Red Devils are led by Mirtroka who as accounted for over 2,600 yards and 30 TD's in his career. The offensive line will be led by senior Max Gilliam and junior Justin Chamer. After Mitroka senior Derek Judd is likely to be the leading ball carrier out of the backfield. Sophomore Justin Moores is a big target on the outside for the GI passing game.

The GI defense will be led by  a host of seniors. Phil Camilleri and Dean Ziberi help give the Red Devils a solid line backing corp. Three sophomores are expected to get opportunities. Dominic Trombley, Andrew Vollmerhausen and Owen Wiewiura will help bolster the defensive line.

Grosse Ile has a ton of talent and must hope that depth does not become an issue this season. The Red Devils seem primed for the playoffs and a run at the league title. They simply just must stay healthy. Prediction 6-3
