Well let's do this again. I make picks every year and usually do a pretty decent job. Milan made me look foolish two years in a row. Last season I picked them to tank and they won the league which all the Milan fans ripped me for. Two seasons ago I picked them to do well and they tanked but nobody from Milan said a word. Human nature I suppose. I'm sure I'll miss on a team somewhere but I shall give it a shot.
2. Grosse Ile
8. Flat Rock
Yea, that pretty much looks like a cop out on my part but the only thing that I am sure of is that SMCC will win the league but may end up with a loss and Flat Rock will finish 8th. Every other team is probably capable of beating each other. Why? Well here are some thoughts. SMCC has tradition, talent and the best coach in the league. GI looks like they may have depth issues but that is par for the course. Riverview has two speedy backs but set a school record for points given up in a season last year. Huron has their best team in years but may have problems overcoming the loss of two of their best defensive players. Milan has a nice senior class but only has a roster of 26. Not having JV last season hurt their depth. Airport has talent although most likely less than last season and may struggle after another head coaching change. Jefferson has a big roster and may possibly benefit from their first offensive change in four or five decades. Flat Rock just isn't big enough to compete in the rugged Huron League.
Most Friday nights are going to be fun this season. There should be some great games. Jefferson may possibly be the team that surprises everyone this season.
Look for my players to watch section tomorrow along with game predictions on Tuesday and Wednesday.
