Beautiful night in downtown Waltz. I'm sitting around enjoying the cool night with a nice little bonfire going in the yard. With laptop in hand I am writing about the Friday Night Stars from around the Huron League.
One think that jumped out at me from the first night of the season is the solid quarterbacking that three sophomores provided for their teams. Jacob Hagemann, Brandon Potcova and Mike Chickeral all had nice nights for their teams. While two of them lost games in didn't seem that it was any fault of their own. It will be nice to see those three youngsters progess throughout the season and years to come.
I think the readers on here are being a little to critical of SMCC's loss to Detroit Crockett. The Rockets most likely have more Division I players on their rosters than most of the Huron league schools have had in their football histories. The Falcons will be fine but they better get going quickly Jefferson and Riverview are up the next two weeks.
Many people are being critical of Huron's win over Erie Mason citing that the Eagles aren't very good. Who cares, a win is a win and the Chiefs can use as many as they can get.
The league went 5-3 on the opening night of the season. In my opinion, the Airport and Flat Rock losses were anticipated while the SMCC loss wasn't a surprise either. My Alma Mater Flat Rock surprised me a bit with their close outcome. It looks as if their sophmores are growing up quickly.
Well, goodnight folks look for the weekly Friday Night Stars piece every Sunday morning only at the Examiner:
