SMCC is coming off of a 10-2 season which resulted in a second place league finish to Milan and a loss in the Division 5 Regional to Livonia Clarenceville. Falcon coach Jack Giarmo is the Dean of Huron League coaches and is entering his 17th season at his Alma Mater.
Offensively, the Falcons are led by senior signal caller Bryce Windham. He will have three capable RB's to give the ball to. Junior Justin Carrabino leads the way, but seniors John Lako and Mitchell Lamour will see just as many carries. Clearing the way on the offensive line will be Mitchell Poupard, Kyle Bausman and TE Riley Woolford. Perhaps the biggest surprise for the Falcons is that they probably have the best WR in the league in senior Travis Vuich.
Defensively is where the Falcons will need to be at their best if they are going to unseat Milan as the league champs. SMCC will be led by senior DL Trystin Robinson, senior LB Troy Hilkins and senior safety David Howey.
While SMCC expects to be good every season, this is the year that the Falcon hopeful have been waiting for since their loss at Ford Field to Ithaca in 2010. The Falcons have a chance to get there, but first they must face a rugged non-league schedule plus one of the more talented Huron Leagues in a few years. Prediction 8-1
