Huron League Thoughts and Questions

Should other teams in the Huron League duplicate SMCC's offense?

A prototype of my new Huron League website is available for viewing underneath Huron League Athletics.

Will the SMCC/Constantine game last longer than 1 1/2 hours?

How many Huron Leaague seniors will be playing college football next year?

When do most teams start preparing for next season?

Do most league coaches encourage their football players to paticipate in track and field? Should they?

Will Huron ever find it's way out of the basement?

How much longer will Cisco, Redmond and Pruchnicki coach?

How soon until Riverview is relavent?

Can Grosse Ile find a way to replace Dex Teen?

How do Catholic Schools Brother Rice and De LaSalle avoid each other in the playoffs?

What does BR and DLS being catholic have to do with anything?

Jefferson ran quite a few plays in the FH T.

All coaches should encourage their players to play as many sports as possible... track is a good one.

Huronleaguefootball said...

Uh, they both play football.

Not everything on the blog talks about the Huron League.

What player would each team miss the most?

Mr. HuronLeagueMan said...

They may just play each other.

The full house works very well for SMCC in part because they are the only one in the league who runs it.

You misunderstood me, Chris.... what does BR and DLS being CATHOLIC have to with your question?

SMCC is 35-11 vs non-league opponents since 2000... they are successful because they are good not because they run the T. They were dominant for many a year before they even ran the T.

Huronleaguefootball said...

I meant Catholic League schools that play in the same division of the Catholic League somehow manage to avoid each other until a possible matchup in the finals. Sorry about that.

Huronleaguefootball said...

SMCC has always ran a run based offense.

Wouldn't the T be a great offense for Huron?

They could run it at every level. They could spend 75% of their practice time blocking and tackling.

There would be less opportunity for error. They could easily get the ball to their best players by simply handing the ball off.

Is it safe to assume that Huron has the biggest offensive playbook in the league? They could spend half of the time on offense and then focus on defense which always seems to be their achilles heel.

i know that teen has been getting some looks from some colleges, but besides that i havent heard of anyone else..

Anonymous said...

teen is a great talent, there is not a single player on the devils right now that can "replace" him. thank god football is a team sport eh? the devils had five or six players on varsity that averaged six yards per carry or better this season. not to mention the passing game which can only improve upon last year with the quarterback and two or three top recievers returning. the JV player, #27 also has some speed with a great downhill running style. GI will miss teen's big play ability next year, but it will definitely be an afterthought.

Huronleaguefootball said...

I'm in the process of sorting out the logistics.

I have ideas for student writers and participation from the coaches and AD's.

If people want this. I think there will be cooperation and it will heppen. If not, it won't happen.

Much will depend on advertising and if people are willing to pay for it. I can prove the traffic based on this blog. Cost per impression would be less than half the cost of a business card.

We'll see what happens.

For colleges I'm gonna say Dex Teen (GI), TJ Lovell (SMCC), and Tyler Weclowski(NB Huron). There may be others. I know for sure Lovell has, it just depends on if he wants to do hockey or football.

Anonymous said...

Huronleaguefootball, who do you think will get college offers? I'm going to guess Teen, Weclowski and TJ Lovell. There may be others, but those are my guesses.

Anonymous said...

Teen must be 6ft or less and 175lbs or less.What schools have been looking at him ?

Huronleaguefootball said...

I know Joe Conner has some D II interest.

Anonymous said...

HLfootball, what do you think about Lovell and Weclowski playing in college?

Anonymous said...

Is Smcc the home team this saturday?

Huronleaguefootball said...

I see Lovell playing at an Adrian or another DIII school. I see Weclowski probably doing the same depending on what his 40 time is. Teen will probably play DIII. His size may limit him but speed won't be a problem. I'm assuming Box will play somewhere. Most likely DII or III. Stockert may get picked up by a DIII school to play tight end.

Huronleaguefootball said...

Let me clarify something here. I see those guys getting PT at those levels. Some of those kids may go a higher level but they may never see the field.

SMCC is the away team. I believe for the semi-finals the teams that won the odd regions, regions 1 and 3 are the home team. SMCC was in region 4. I believe thats how it works.

Should other teams in the Huron League duplicate SMCC's offense?

Yes!, they have the best offense in the league and it is carrying them to what looks like a state championship run.

A prototype of my new Huron League website is available for viewing underneath Huron League Athletics.

Looks Good!, cant wait for all the Huron League sports info to be in one spot..


How many Huron Leaague seniors will be playing college football next year? I say 4..

Teen, TJ Lovell,Tyler Weclowski, Box


When do most teams start preparing for next season?

If they were smart the day after they did not make the playoffs.

Do most league coaches encourage their football players to paticipate in track and field?

They should be doing track/field plus other conditioning year round.


How soon until Riverview is relavent?

2 more years

Can Grosse Ile find a way to replace Dex Teen?

Yes, just like every other team replaces players that graduate. He is good, but there are plenty of good players on GI and more will be coming up.

Thanks for answering HLfootball. I agree with you, some may go higher, but probably won't play that much. Most people probably won't believe this, but its true. This summer Lovell had some interest from a D1 school, all be it a MAC school, but still. Western Michigan went to SMCC this summer and wanted to look at his grades, which aren't a problem. Just thought I'd share that Western showed some interest. Adrain might be a good choice for him considering they have a hockey team too.

I think those mentioned players could see playing time at many D2 teams easily. Have you ever seen a Findley, Northwood, Ferris, or other GLIAC teams play? These guys would do well.

Huronleaguefootball said...

I have seen the GLIAC teams many times. Speed is usually the difference between DII and DIII. Much will depend on their 40 times.

Anonymous said...

No.... I think Huron league teams should keep doing the shotgun spread with tons of room for error and mistakes.

lovell d3. nooo more than that,
d3 would be like pannone or labeau.

Anonymous said...

yes i agree tj can play at a higher level then d3.
and idk if labeau or pannone could even go d3

Anonymous said...

anonymous, pannone is only a junior if you didn't know

Anonymous said...

Weclowski has the skill to be a gliac player, he probobly wouldnt play much until his sophmore or junior year tho.

Mlive is saying SMCC is the home team at Jackson. Not sure how accurate Mlive is but thats what they are saying.

Anonymous said...

correction from above post. I seen SMCC is the home team on max prep.

i am the one that left the comment about smcc being away. i thought that was the MHSAA rule that the odd regional winners were home and wear dark uniforms. smcc is in a even region, region 4. here is what i found on the MHSAA under the tournament managers tab:

Uniforms
(All dark and light jersey colors may be switched if mu-tually agreed upon by the two competing teams.)
Pre-District and District Games -- Home teams (teams with the highest playoff average) are to wear dark co-lored jerseys and the visiting team light colored jerseys.
Regional Games -- Home teams are to wear dark co-lored jerseys and the visiting team light colored jerseys.
Semifinal Games -- Home teams (teams from Region-als No. 1 & 3) are to wear dark colored jerseys; visiting teams are to wear light colored jerseys.
Final Games -- Winners at the Semifinal level from the Region 1 & 2 games will be home teams and wear dark co-lored jerseys. Winners from the Semifinal Region 3 & 4 games will be the visitors and will wear light colored jerseys.

SMCC is away

I do think GI/Manchester would be a good game...GI would come out on top..close game..

Anonymous said...

So will they wear the green or the white?

Anonymous said...

white

Anonymous said...

teen has been getting looks from Grand Valley.

manchester would beat GI by 20. SMCC is playing great and is much better than they were in the regular season. That was practically the same Manchester team that should have beat smcc last year but dropped it 18-14. Manchester GI would not even be a game.

Im pretty good at this and Teen is to small for GVS.Adrian or some other D3 schools.Beleave it or not schools pick players by body size and speed and grades.

This is GVSU's roster. Check it, then say Dex is too short to go there. He went to their summer camps and impressed them on THEIR stop watches. They also really love Blake Smolen, and believe it or not, that matters. Coaches figure if one good kid comes out of a program, they will get another.

Anonymous said...

Where in my post did i say dex was to short.I was talking about his weight.I have looked at all the rosters what your not seeing is there 40 time.Them smaller kids you see on the roster run 4.5s.If dex had a good 40 time like that then he's all set.But as far as your other comment please cut it out.If smolen is fast,big,and has good grades great.But they are not going to take him because they got a good kid from there before LOL.Like i said it,s about size,speed,and grades.

I know Weclowski has been invited to Toledo friday for a visit and then the game.I think he may be to small for D1 even thow it,s Toledo. In less there thinking 2 years down the road.I hope the best for Teen and Weclowski. They are both a little under size But both play with so much heart.

^ teen's scout page, has his actual size and forty time

http://recruiting.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=8&c=1&nid=4365609
^ tyler's page.

Both can play ball at the next level for sure. It says 190 for tyler and Teen it says 174, but that weigh in was last april so he could of grown and tyler could have grown as well. Its not like Tyler would be playing linebacker in college and same with Teen playing running back, they both would have position changes. and the post about Teen having GVSU eye isnt a lie either. Theres an article about his recruiting. Best wishes, those boys will definitely represent the huron league well.
