Grosse Ile @ Huron

Grosse Ile (1-0) is coming off of a 47-0 thrashing of Annapolis while Huron (1-0) crushed hapless Summit Academy 49-8. The Red Devils won last seasons game 28-3 and have won 7 out of the last 10 in the series.

Grosse Ile is once again led by the dynamic Andrew Mitroka at QB, but the offense has an abundance of weapons and solid speed at the skill positions. Defensively, the Red Devils are led by Phil Camilleri and Dean Ziberi.

Huron has two major weapons on offense, junior QB Matt Hartwick is a clone of GI's Mitroka and senior RB Ian Robinson. Robinson has a good speed and has bulked up which allows him to run between the tackles. The Chief defense is young and energetic. They are led by two juniors at LB, Steele White and Jake Galzlka.

This should be a great early season matchup. GI has beaten the Chiefs rather soundly the last three years. A win by the Red Devils would be a key win over a league opponent capable of beating most anyone in the league. A victory for the Chiefs could help propel them to a special season.

There are a few things to watch for in this game. The size of Huron's offensive line versus the team speed of GI's defense. The other would be how each defensive coordinator handles the speed and explosiveness of the two QB's in the game. Prediction: GI 23 Huron 21

I look doe this one to be a shootout. the 2 point spread is accurate but I am thinking more of a 49-47 game. Unless GI get up quick then you could see the self-destruction of the Chiefs early this year.

Every year you expect a good game and Huron gets blown out. This week will be no different. Grosse Ile in a blowout. You can take that to the bank.

Dang your humble! I think I would give a little more respect to the other team. What happens if your QB blows out is knee again ? (God forbid that please). That team is led by him and if I was you I would just predict a win. Good luck to both teams.

3:12 poster was eluding to GI's need for health this season. Gotta avoid the injury bug with limited depth. Not a personal shot at Mitroka in my opinion.

I have a feeling for the chiefs this year.

Humility doesn't always make for the best posts on here but I do agree that posts should at least be made with thought behind them and realize that the kids do read them.

What was said about Huron is rather true. They have a chance to shut that type of expectation up this year however. This is where is starts.

If Huron does get blow out then things are just astray in Huron, starting at the top.

If the game is close then I think Huron will only get better and be something to reckon with in NOV.

If Huron blows out GI then we may just have awoken the beast.

Something is brewing in New Boston, when will it rear its head?

this week?

3:12 - Huron loves all of these posts about them competing with the big boys for the league title this year. But they are quick to use the little guy "you should be more humble." You want them to be humble? Then humble them!

Not at all. I hope the kid stays healthy. Wouldn't wish that on any one. He is a great player, and in my opinion he is really all they have. No other major stand outs. Some good players yes, but he elevates everyone else on that team. Without him, well, look at last year.

GI out coaches Huron like most good teams in this league do year in and year out with less talent. Last years score will look very similar. 28-7

Doubtful it's that big a margin

That could be a huge factor this evening. Right now the weather in New Boston at 7 pm tonight is saying scattered thunderstorms and a 50% chance of rain. Hot and humid.

I'll take Derrick Anderson's Defense over a Kalbfleish offense anyday. Add a John "Bear" Bodner offense and that's just icing on the cake

215, 215 and 218 GI's DL vs. 240,240, 220, 200, 265 Huron's OL Hmmmmmmm. The question needs to be, do you like GI's offense over Huron's defense more than Huron's offense over GI's defense?

The bigger they are the harder they fall. GI's undersized defense hasn't had a problem shutting down Hurons offense the last three years. Speed and conditioning best out size everytime. But I'm done I will let GI's D do the rest of the talking. Fire up Devil Dawgs!

Actually it was four interceptions that derailed Huron last season. Won't happen again.

How's that D Looking to you now?

How do you feel about that Derrek Anderson defense that was shredded for 380 + yards last night? GI's defense was beat up. The only thing they could resort to was ripping helmets off of defenseless players and their coach running onto the field to whine. It was a beat down!
