Jefferson @ Grosse Ile

Both teams are coming off of week one losses. Jefferson fell to Ida 33-7 while Grosse Ile lost to Parma Western 27-21. Gross Ile won last season's game 49-7 and have won four in a row in the series which Jefferson leads 25-23 overall.

A young Red Devil team played well against a Parma Western team that is considered to be the schools best in 30 years. Junior Justin Moores showed he is another good Grosse Ile QB in the making while RB Andrew Vollmerhausen is as rugged as they come. Josh Moskall and Time Beach lead an active defense that is sure to get better as the season progresses.

Jefferson was disappointing in the opener against Ida. The Bears have gone back to a running based offense, but the passing game appeared a bit more potent in the opener.  Expect the Bears to try and establish the run and out physical the younger Islanders.

A win here for either team is needed at this point and could possibly launch someone to a solid season. A loss for either could mean a long season with wins getting harder to come by. Pick: Grosse Ile 27 Jefferson 14

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

Congrats to SMCC's Adam Kipf on his first varsity win as a head coach.

Huron looked very very good.

It was nice to see my Alma Mater Flat Rock get a win on Friday. Congrats to the players and coaches!

Did any starter play more than the 1st half for Riverview against Ecorse?

Obviously Milan missed arguably the best RB in the league against Marshall.

Sounds like a young Grosse Ile team let one get away from them on Friday.

Could be a long season at Airport, that score surprised me.

I'm not sure what to think about Jefferson, I know Ida is really good again.

The league went 4-4 in week 1 and so did I. That isn't very good.

How could Tecumseh give up that many points to SMCC? It isn't like they haven't seen that offense before.

Huron junior WR Andrew Miller looks like a Devin Collins clone. Expect a good year from him.

It was nice to see my fellow teammates; Dave Lambrix, Jim Hamilton and Todd Gillman from the 1983 Flat Rock football team at the Ram game Friday. By the way, we were 5-4 that season.

Big early season game down at Navarre Field as Riverview plays SMCC.

I'm pretty sure Milan will be an angry football team when they host Flat Rock this week.

Grosse Ile won't be an easy win for anyone this season, although they a probably a year away.

Sounds like Airport's line play needs to improve.

We will find out where Jefferson stands when they travel to the island on Thursday.

Did we really learn anything about the Huron League in week 1?

For all the Michigan fans out there, how often do B1G teams win on the road against the PAC 12?

For all you State fans out there, can you believe I had a UM buddy of mine bet me straight up $100 on the MSU @ Western game?

For all you Buckeye fans, take a shower for once would you please?
