Late April Football

Look for the blog to pick up a bit over the next month or two.

The voters decided that SMCC is the preseason favorite at this point to win the league championship.

I have a few thoughts in general regarding the teams and the upcoming season.

Airport: The Jets will miss Jodeci Mays talent but look for a better season from the Jets this year with numerous underclassmen returning and the coaching staff a year better.

Flat Rock: The Rams can go no where but up after their worst season in school history. FR played numerous sophomores last season and the experience and maturity should result in a better season.

Grosse Ile: The Red Devils return two major offensive threats. Look for an offensive focus that runs the ball more this year and controls the clock a bit better. GI's best defense may be a long sustained time consuming drive. GI should be an improved team

Huron: It will be hard for the Chiefs to be any better than they were last season. They must replace some excellent football players. Don't look for the Chiefs to drop to far back though, Dan Kalbfleisch is producing football players in New Boston that want to win.

Jefferson: Jefferson will be their typical selves but lose a lot of seniors including most of the skill guys on offense. The Bears will be a tough victory for any team in the league but will most likely not be any better than last season.

Milan: The Big Reds biggest problem won't be a talented football team, it will be replacing Milan legend Steve Robb. Look for Milan to have a good season but to take a small step backward without Robb at the helm.

SMCC: The Falcons have loads to replace but quite frankly have the best program and coach in the league. SMCC most likely won't repeat last season but don't cry too much for the Falcons, they'll be good as usual.

Riverview: Tough team to figure out. One thing is for sure is that the Bucs will play solid defense. Riverview needs to find a way to score though if they plan on improving on last season's record.

Thoughts and Questions

It looks like the pollsters like SMCC and Airport this upcoming season.

Both teams have a lot to replace

What teams will surprise this season?

Can Milan survive life after Steve Robb?

Will Huron continue their success?

Can FR turn things around?

Will Jefferson stop underachieving?

Is Jeff Stergalas in the hot seat yet?

Will Kish touch the ball every play for GI this season?
