Funny you should ask BN. Things are in the works right now. I am hoping to have the football site up and running by the 1st day of practice. If I don't get the website where I would like it, I will just continue the blog.

Anonymous said...

You had a site or blog (not sure) that a few people joined back in November. Is that the site you speak of?

Huronleaguefootball said...

That platform is being used and is currently in the works. We'll see what happens.

I dont think three GI's should be on the top 10 list, but hey its your blog LOL. But, i agree with 7 of those anyways so we'll see this season who performs.

I see the donate buton, I dont have any money but I do have my time to give and maybe a few pair of used spectacles I no longer need or is all you are after is money?

Huronleaguefootball said...

Funny you should ask now. I asked for help in developing a website about 5 months ago. I said I was willing to split anybody in on any profits that may come from it. I had no takers.

I am now in the process of having a website developed which is going to cost some money. I am willing to invest some monies to make the site work. In the meantime I thought I would see if anybody would be willing to donate for the free blogs that have been up and running for almost a year. If people donate, great! If not, that is okay too. I was just trying to offset some of the upfront cost that I am incurring on the website.

I have plans for people who would like to help with content during the season. If that is you please email me.

So in answer to your question about me being all about money. You can decide for yourself.

hey chris how about eric zapata for flat rock? he was a great FB for the rams this past year

Zapata is a solid player who runs hard. He is perfect for their offense.

SITOFN, you know as well as I do that GI needs to get tougher. They had the athletes last year, they just lacked tougness. If you are going to tell me this player you are talking about is another offensive weapon, that doesnt mean much to me.

I agree with all but korody. Come on he's been on varsity for three years cause the first two they hardly had enough players on the team to play.Not because he was good.they didnt win a game those first two years He was just a big to put on the line and he still gets thrown around.And at LB last year he wasnot even a factor to slow.

Huronleaguefootball said...

He was 1st team All Huron League center last year as a junior. He should have a solid year again.

Anonymous said...

Attacks on players is uncalled for....please take that trash to M-live. Kudo's to Chris for calling it out.

I concur that GI needs to tighten up the D... and yes the mystery player will likely go both ways.

To say GI lacked toughness is a STRETCH at best, however their Defensive performance (or lack there of) will indeed be a measuring stick for the 2010 campaign.

I sense some winds of change at GI on the Defensive side of the ball this year...keep your eyes on the staff here, it's fortified.

Don't forget about Yinger from SMCC. VERY fast probably the fastest kid on the team and he was improving before he got hurt against Blissfield. Size and speed he'll be SMCC's top back and will be first team all league next season.

Craig M said...

I like the count down guy, it is getting me really excited for this season!!!!!

Anonymous said...

yeah just because yinger got hurt doesnt mean he isnt a stud, hes quick as hell maybe one of te quickest guy in the league. and what about jake sterling that kid pretty atheletic, i would say jake should be up there before mccullough, because honestly what has mccullough done so speacial in his two years on varsity? nothing, and has he even played DE i dont think so? One game vs Grose Ile doesnt make him a season starter, i think you should look a little more into things, Chris you should get some films and wathc them to be more accurate

Huronleaguefootball said...

Unless your a coach somewhere for one of the programs I guarantee I have seen more film than you on all of these players.

Anonymous said...

Korody was the anchor of an offensive line that led the way for the likes of teen, church, curtis and white, all of whom averaged more than six yards per carry and combined for one of the best rushing offenses in the league. For someone to come on a blog and post a message purely to put a KID down is both pathetic and an embaressment to said person.

What about jake sterling from jefferson? He took over after what happened in week three and did a great job for the bears last year.

Anonymous said...

I agree, Sterling should be on the list after stepping up for that incident that happened right before the Airport/Jeff game. McCollough, Honestly is just a big body. I havent been impressed but track states is what both these kids have accomplished.

As for Yinger, does he play a spring sport? shouldve ran track with Howey then maybe SMCC would've contended with Milan for second place in the league.

Fastest kid i am not sure, lots of athletes faster i would think...

Luke Yinger was one of my favorite players to watch last year. Extremely fast on the football field.

It sounds like he is over his injury from last year. I know it was pretty serious.

chris, usually the Monroe Evening news does the preview for each school, and they usually have a cover player.

who do you think it will be this year,
and if only the huron league had a preview, who would be your cover player?

Huronleaguefootball said...

That is a great question and I may have an answer.

Your getting a little ahead of me. Are you trying to steal my thunder?

Most times covers go to the flashy players at the skilled positions.

If that is the case I may have to throw Jodeci Mays, Mike Pannone, or Sterling Wilson on the cover.

Each of those guys have one thing in common though, can you guess?

Sometimes you have to consider the guys who do some blocking and tackling. They don't get the limelight as much but are certainly just as worthy of the cover. Guys that would fit this criteria are Brad Bosman and Kyle Burkardt.

Anonymous said...

Bosman is playing, he's the top returning player in the league, I bet if he didnt Giarmo and Cisco would sleep easier before there games against Riverview.

Anonymous said...

The thing those three have in common is the fact that they were good Juniors playing with a group of good Seniors. They all will miss last years group, thats for sure.

Sorry to say it, but I believe Bosman is gettin alot more hype simply because alot of people look at this blog and you (Chris) mentioned his name. Top returning player in the league? I doubt that. People jumping on the bandwagon so to speak.

As for Cover player, I'm sure Mays will get it.

Huronleaguefootball said...

Those three only play one way. Mays on offense, Pannone on defense and Wilson moved exclusively to offense after game four last year.

Bosman was a unanimous 1st team all-league selection last year at DE and was 2nd team all-league TE. I wouldn't call that hype by me. I would call that one of the top players in the league.

Anonymous said...

Sorry to correct you Chris he was 1st Team Unam for DT not DE.

Anonymous said...

ok - how about instead of top 10 returning players - try a upcoming player(s) to watch? there are a lot of talented boys just coming up to varsity this next season

Anonymous said...

Keep in mind boys that the MEN does a Monroe region preview not the just the HL. Could be Bolster from Dundee on the cover. I think Monroe has a pretty good RB as well.

Anonymous said...

There is a chance this year that Pannone will run the ball.

Anonymous said...

As a parent I can only hope the players with so much promise keep their acts together, their grades up, and their noses to the grindstone so they can have the great year they've been working towards from the time they were young. Let's go seniors, havet the best year you can! Make it happen! Ok, I'm done now.

Pannone should het the cover......
others may deserve it but it will somthing along the lines of the season he and his team last year and if they can pull it off again or something. hes the best player for this kind article, its for monroe county and him and his team has the best chance of bringing a state chapionship home to monroe county.

mays would also be a great choice, but if you were to pick someone other than pannone you gotta go with sterling wilson, the kid is up and comming and he can give any team trouble, him and mays would be a great match up.

The question was, who would be on the cover of a magazine or preview if it only covered the Huron League.

I went to SMCC's football website and looked at the schedule and smcc's freshman team also plays flat rock jv team, warren de la salle freshman, and u of d Jesuit freshman teams.

Never mind I was wrong. They don't play flat rock jv. By looking at the schedule it looks like the week smcc plays flat rock the whole freshman team is getting moved up to jv just for that week. I think they did that this past season too.

Anonymous said...

So in essence who is the best player in the league since there is no Huron League Magazine.

Therefore your top ten list would then be your answer. I know you are a big fan of Bosman and rightfully so. I think he would get your nod.

Wow... U of D, BBR and DeLaSalle.


Good luck Freshman, you are going to need it! I guess that is one way to weed out those that dont play for keeps.

Burkhart made the top 5 on the list and does a good job for CC,but is far from the best on the OL for CC.He is soild and doesnt make alot of mistakes but is small for his postion and his speed is just ok.Look for other stand outs for CC.. this the entire line is made of returning Jrs.( except one )

See here is what people don't understand about Airport. They will have the best backfield in the league, at worst the 2nd best OLine and the best offensive weapon in the league in Mays. Offensively they should be fine. The question is on D, where 10 starters are being replaced.

Anonymous said...

With all due respect, ANYONE who made 1st or 2nd team all league last year that is returning this year would obviously be considered one of the top in the league.

I just dont think Bosman is the #1 returning player, not by a long shot.

Offensively, yes, Mays would be my choice. Pannone is the top returning Defensive player, in my opinion.

BOLD PREDICTIONS FOR THE 2010 SEASON


-Jefferson wins first playoff game since 2001.

-GI has a better record than Airport

-Airport misses the playoffs

- Half of the Huron League makes the playoffs


anyone else care to add?

Anonymous said...

I would also like to add that Mays is probably very capable of starting at DB. It is my opinion that Airport will not be able to afford to not play their best players at every position. Again it is my opinion that they will be fighting for a playoff spot when they face Franklin.

If Mays is the best at DB.. play him there! Your season may depend on it.

What about a list of the top JV players moving up to varsity?

Anonymous said...

I agree, the Jets should have the quickest backfield with Mays and Williams. They have some quick kids from the JV too.

But on the D... the jets are losing pretty much every starter on the Defensive side. Expect Jodeci to play some Safety too i might add too. An inexperienced LB-core is going to be a test but they will manage i belive.

your talking about fast kids, Eric Morrow runs a 4.40 at the UT Camp thats blazin speed and HE IS FASTER THEN MAYES who runs 4.7 and Eric beat him in track all season so fastest Forty in huron league probably goes to morrow or pittman but fastest track times go to milan for sure get some brains you guys who know nothing.

Bosman is the most COMPLETE player this league has seen in a long time. 2 way player All league for both positions. Why wouldn't he be the best returning player?

Brains for guys that know nothing? Hey boss guess what!? Football isn't just who has the fastest Forty time or who won most of the track season in a 100 or 200 dash! Im sure your aware that their are several other track events that display at least some type of speed right!?! Airport has fast backs despite who beat who this past season.

Woah! what a bold move for someone to get their name in the mix for fastest back in the league! Talk went from FR to Huron to Airport to SMCC, etc... Jefferson wants their name in too i guess?

So Morrow runs a fast 40, can he do it in pads? Did he put up ANY numbers last year? Because I havn't heard his name. Mayes might be slower, but he has a good season under his belt. I'd take experience on the field over a track star anyday.

j.w.

Anonymous said...

i dont remember morrow being very fast last year in football or in track this year. trust me. that had to be a poorly hand timed 4.40. because after watching him in a few sports i would say low 4.7s at best (which is not slow) a 4.40 is a GREAT time for a nfl combine back (though those times are electronic) saying so nobody in the league or region can run a legit 4.40

Bosman isn't hype at all obviously he's doing something right if you guys are arguiing over him being the #1 returning player in the league. I talked to a Riverview Coach last year when they played Jefferson, Jefferson ran 26 running plays in the first half, of those 26 plays only 4 were ran at Bosman for a total of -21 yards, the other 22 plays were ran for a total of 156 yards. Cisco, yes thee Marc Cisco based his offense on Bosman, Giarmo was the same way as was Redmond who thought VERY highly of Bosman. See a pattern?

Anonymous said...

Redmond did not call his plays around bossman. Airport ran to the left, right, and up the middle and won 41-0. Bossman is a good player but to say teams are scheduling their whole offense against him? Geez I think one of the lineman from airport had 3 sacks that game maybe riverview should have been the one changing plays?

That was an impressive win for Airport over Riverview.

IMO here are a few upcoming from JV that I know of.......Oh, and please take no offense if there are plaers from teams that I didn't mention - I don't know all of the kids names - after all it was just JV
Airport - Justin Jones
Flat Rock - Blosser
Riverview - Colton Cortis
Grosse Ile - Alex Kish
Like I said there were a lot of other talented kids out there from other teams - just can't remember all the names

"What about a list of the top JV players moving up to varsity?
July 15, 2010 3:47 PM"

I cant really remember the names but the league had some pretty good players last year for JV. The best players I saw were Blosser from Flat Rock, 2 from GI, their running back #27 and their LB who got pulled up to Var while they were still undefeated. Flat Rocks whole group that is moving up is pretty darn solid but I believe most were Frosh so it wont really matter until next year. Airport was solid as usual prob the best group of talent in the league they had a good RB and LB (not sure if it was the same person) CC was not that good "talent" wise but was the best "team" like usual. Stop the T stop them, cant stop it you lose, period. GI's team was MUCH better then years past either them or Airport is the most talented group moving to Varsity. Riverview and Huron did not impress at all but I believe most of both teams were on Varsity so its hard to judge. Milan had some good athletes I cant remember what they played but they were pretty big and fast as a whole. Jefferson was much "less" then their normal skill level.

Anonymous said...

Watch out for Brandon Potcova from Airport. He will be one of the 2 or 3 best qb's in the league as a sophomore. Running backs Justin Jones and Caleb Shumake would be a really good starting backfield, that's gonna have to wait until next year though.

Anonymous said...

The best that I saw last year at JV level was the RB from Grosse Ile and also Justin Jones from Airport. GI running back was the complete package. He has the size and the speed and Jones will be a Mays replacement down the road. There will be others but these two were the stand outs last year.

Anonymous said...

Did you watch the GI FR game?
Kish had maybe 75 yards. Maybe. FR has dual threat in the backfield, and so does airport. But the most impressive backs i saw were the two from airport and flatrock. and both are surrounded by solid qbs

A
Potcova
Jones
Schumake


FR
Chickeral
Knoch
Blosser

those are your best backs and I think the first 6 of your top 10 JV players

Airport coach said...

did you watch the airport-fr jv game? best game i have seen in the huron league including varsity in 10 years

Talking about kish from GI being the best is a joke, if you watched our boys from airport run, or even watched the 2 kids from FR run you would change your mind

kish is better than jones hands down, bigger size and speed,

hey chris, I am a chief mom. and i hate flat rock!

I do think Bosman is getting alot of hype..why shouldn't he? He has received 1st Team for DL for the past two years and last year also received 2nd team for TE. Any other retuning players have the same criteria? Bosman plays both sides of the ball and obviously does it very well -I would bet any coach in this league would love fir him to play for them. He gets my vote for #1 returning player- I only wish he played for us.

What team are you from?

Anonymous said...

Airport Coach... you must not of seen Kish run back the kickoff return against you, or the 70 yard option that he ran against you for another td. he also two or three other 50 plus yard gains against your D let alone the normal gains that he gets every carry. I think that he scored at least 16 or so t.d. last year and not sure about exta points. The best about Kish is that his D is even better than his O . He may not be the best but he is in the top players moving up.

Anonymous said...

I also watched the 2 back combo from FR ccombine for about 400 on us, FR played harder than your Grosse Ile team too. They beat you. Sorry. Wooped you, and came close to beating us. So watch out for flat rock in 2011 and 2012.
