Milan @ SMCC

SMCC (5-0) is coming off of a  28-7 win over Airport while Milan (2-3) fell to Grosse Ile 38-36. Milan won last seasons match up 21-14, but the Falcons have won three of the last five.

SMCC has been playing extremely well defensively all season. The Falcons are giving up a paltry 3.5 ppg in Huron League play. The offense has been tough to slow down with Justin Carrabino, John Lako and Mitchell Lamour all capable of scoring every time they touch the ball.

Milan's offense just isn't the same this season. Sophomore Trace Lindeman is as good as ever, but the passing game has been suspect. The defense has been good enough at times, but seemed to wear down last week due to lack of depth.

This looks like another gimmee for the Falcons, but each week their opponents have not gone away easily. This game will be no different. Milan will play well, but there is too much talent at SMCC. Prediction: SMCC 21 Milan 0

Airport @ Grosse Ile

Grosse Ile (3-2) is coming off of a 38-36 double overtime victory over Milan While Airport (3-2) was beaten by SMCC 28-7. Airport won last seasons game 27-7 and have won four of the last five games in the series.

Grosse Ile made a nice comeback against Milan last week. The offense was led by Andrew Mitroka who threw for 247 yards and ran for another 76. Sophomore DT Dominic Trombley played what may had been his best game of the season as he recorded 9 solo tackles.

Airport's offense continues to center around RB Dylan Meiring who had over 100 yards against SMCC. The defense was once again led by A.J. Gorteski and Eddie Smith

This is a great match up and is a game that could go either way. GI has struggled against good defenses, but with Mitroka throwing the ball well that could change things. Airport's one dimensional offense may struggle with the Red Devils active LB's. Tough call, but I have to make a pick. Prediction: Grosse Ile 21 Airport 19

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

SMCC wins by 3 TD's again.

Hats off to Huron's defensive coordinator,

Nice comeback by Grosse Ile

Congrats to Jefferson for getting their first win of the season.

Sometimes you need to throw the ball.

Riverview's Drew Kroll looked like Houdini at times in the 4th quarter Friday.

Ever here a coach say, play until the whistle blows?

I'm still hoping the Rams can get a win.

I know it is a long way off, but I hope SMCC gets a shot at Ithaca.

Is Huron actually in line to host a playoff game?

Grosse Ile still has a shot at the playoffs.

I can't believe how often Jefferson throws the ball.

Can Airport get Three more wins?

When you dress 45 players for a JV game, you should have a freshmen team.

Milan should be really good next season.

Riverview has the best student section that I have seen in a while.

Flat Rock @ Jefferson

Both teams are coming off of week four losses. Flat Rock (0-4) fell to Airport 56-21 while Jefferson (0-4) fell to Riverview 37-6.  The Bears won last season 48-13 while the Rams won the two meetings prior to that.

Flat Rock was able to put up some points last week against Airport and should most likely continue that trend this week. The defense has been porous all season, but may fair a little better against the Bears who throw the ball a little more than most.

Jefferson has struggled to score this season and has been shut out twice already. The defense has been better than last year, but has still struggled against quality opponents.

This game couldn't have come at a better time for either team. This should be a good game and some points will most likely be scored. The Rams have lost 13 games in a row and a win would help a team that is still mourning the death of their defensive coordinator Will Mulvaney. Prediction: Flat Rock 28 Jefferson 27

Grosse Ile @ Milan

Both teams are coming off of losses. Milan (2-2) fell at Huron 28-14 while Grosse Ile (2-2) fell to SMCC 28-0. Milan won last years game 40-6 and have won 8 of the last 10 against the Red Devils.

Grosse Ile's offense has abandoned them in their two losses against quality teams. The Red Devils must find a way to get Andrew Mitroka in space. The defense has struggled against quality opponents as well.

Milan must cut down on their turnovers. They were a completely different team in the 2nd half last week against Huron when they didn't turn it over.. The defense will play well enough, if they don't have to keep going back on the field after another turnover.

This was a game that many thought would have implications on the league title. Not so much now. A win for either team gives them a shot at the playoffs while a loss for either most likely will leave them out. Prediction: Milan 21 Grosse Ile 14

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Huron @ Riverview

The Chiefs (3-1) are coming off of a 28-14 victory over Milan while Riverview (4-0) routed Jefferson 37-6. The Pirates won last season's instant classic with a thrilling 40-37 victory which saw five lead changes in the final 3:54 of the game. Riverview has won the last three meetings by a total 10 points.

Riverview comes into Friday's game averaging 34 ppg. The Pirates are led by senior QB Drew Kroll on offense while the running game is led junior Eric Gant. The defense has been just as impressive giving up just under 12 ppg and is led by maybe the best LB in the league, Tyler Chase.

Huron has had to shrug off a season ending ACL injury to senior RB Ian Robinson against SMCC. Two underclassmen have filled in at the position with junior Jacob Fryer and sophomore Robert Sullins getting most of the carries. Huron's defense has been opportunistic this season. Senior CB Devin Collins leads the Chiefs with 3 Int's.

Although nothing can compare to last season's game, these two teams are evenly matched. Both appear to be playoff caliber teams with stars on both sides of the ball. Two players to watch out for are Riverview's Adam Borgert and Huron's Jonathan Krug. Both are extremely physical linemen. Another player to watch out for is Huron's junior QB Matt Hartwick. He has accounted for 8 TD's in the first four games this season.

This could be a low scoring affair with whoever wins the turnover battle winning the game. This may not be the only meeting of these two teams this season. It is homecoming at Riverview, that has to be worth something. Prediction Riverview 16 Huron 14

SMCC @ Airport

SMCC (4-0) is coming off of a 28-0 victory over Grosse Ile while Airport (3-1) beat Flat Rock  56-21. The Falcons won last seasons game 27-7 and have won eight of the last ten games in the series. In fact, SMCC has won forty-one of the fiftey-one games play between these two teams since 1954.

Airport put up a lot of points against Flat Rock last week and most came on the ground. Dylan Meiring and Bryce Cole continue to provide the offensive output for the Jets. Defensively, Airport has the task of slowing down the Falcons high powered offense.

SMCC keeps showing league opponents week in and week out that they appear to be the class of the league. They lead the league in both points scored and points against. They also have the best coach in the Huron League.

Airport has stepped up this season and surprised many a little bit, but things get tougher from here on out for the Jets. Airport will have to find a way to force some Falcon turnovers and find a way to get into the endzone at least three times. I just don't see that happening. Prediction: SMCC 35 Airport 7

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

Thoughts and Prayers to the Flat Rock Community.

SMCC beat Grosse Ile by four TD's not the three I predicted.

Riverview just keeps rolling.

Huron looked really good for a half Friday.

Airport has five tough games in a row.

How many Huron League teams get into the playoffs?

Jefferson has really surprised me.

I'm not sure if Milan can right the ship.

If Flat Rock ever deserved a win, it would be this week.

Huron's Devin Collins had a great game with 3TD's and 2 Int's Friday.

Milan's Trace Lindeman was the best player on the field for Milan Friday.

I am positive that Airport will be another SMCC blowout victim.

Flat Rock Assistant Coach Will Mulvaney Passes Away

Current Flat Rock defensive coordinator Will Mulvaney passed away Saturday evening of an apparent heart attack.

Mulvaney was a 1968 graduate of the University of Illinois where he played football for the Fighting Illini. He served in the Vietnam War as part of an Airborne/Special Forces Unit.

Mulvaney earned his MBA and PhD and was a college professor for over 20 years, which included a stop at Saginaw Valley State.

His coaching and football background included stops at the University of Wisconsin, Tulane University,  Hudson Valley Community College and most recently as the defensive coordinator at the University Wisconsin Milwaukee.

In 1993, Mulvaney was the defensive coordinator for Manchester High School. The Flying Dutchmen finished as the Class C runner-up that season falling to Iron Mountain in the final.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Jefferson @ Riverview

Riverview (3-0) beat Airport last week 34-19 while Jefferson (0-3) lost to Milan 34-0. The Pirates won last years game 50-12, but the Bears have won six of the last ten.

Riverview seems to be hitting their stride offensively. They can score through the air or on the ground. The defense continues to be the strength of this team and will need to play well against the pass happy Bears.

Jefferson has been able to move the ball through the air this season, but lack of a running game and turnovers have hurt them. While the defense hasn't been a bright spot, they are much improved over a year ago.

Riverview seems poised to make a run at the league title. The natives down near the lake are a little restless with the new Jefferson regime. I know it is hard, but you have to give the new guys some time to turn things around. They are doing a lot of things right down there, the wins will come eventually. Prediction: Riverview 34 Jefferson 14

Flat Rock @ Airport

Both teams are coming off of losses in week 3. Flat Rock (0-3) fell to Grosse Ile 42-7 while Airport (2-1) was dealt their first loss of the season by Riverview, 34-19. Airport won last seasons game 49-7 and have won 12 in a row in the series.

Flat Rock started out well last week on offense, but turnovers hurt them in the first half. The defense hasn't really been able to stop anyone in the league. It doesn't get any easier as Airport will run the ball all night.

Airport's Robbie McGrath had a really nice game last week. Look for three backs to carry the ball a lot this week. The defense was shredded a bit last week by Riverview, but should rebound against the Rams.

I just don't see this being much of a game although this is a good rivalry. Flat Rock seems to be improved this season, but you haven't been able to tell the last two weeks. Airport needs another win in hopes of getting to six and qualifying for the playoffs. Prediction: Airport 42 Flat Rock 6

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Milan @ Huron

Milan (2-1) is coming off of a 34-0 win over Jefferson while Huron (2-1) lost at SMCC 40-7. Milan won last season's contest 20-7 and have won 13 0f 14 since reentering the league back in 2000.

The Milan offense has sputtered a bit with turnovers and penalities, but sophomore RB Trace Lindeman continues to put up solid numbers on the ground. The defense pitched a shut out last week , but will have to be better when they travel to New Boston.

Huron was in the game against SMCC for nearly the entire first half before the wheels fell off last week. The lone bright spot offensively for the Chiefs was junior RB Jacob Fryer. Defensively, Huron will need to force Milan out of their comfort zone and to turn the ball over.

This should be a good game that could go either way. A win for either team gives each a legitimate shot at the playoffs. A loss for either may keep them out. Prediction: Huron 21 Milan 20

SMCC @ Grosse Ile

SMCC (3-0) is coming off of a 40-7 thrashing of Huron while Grosse Ile (2-1) rebounded nicely with a 42-7 victory over Flat Rock. The Falcons won last season's match up 29-8 and have won three of the last five in the rivalry.

Grosse Ile will welcome Andrew Mitroka back into the line up against the Falcons. Sophomore Justin Moores led the Red Devils to the blowout of Flat Rock. The defense was able to step up and play well and will certainly be needed against SMCC's powerful offense.

While everyone seems to focus on SMCC's powerful offense, the defense has quietly led the way for the Falcons this season. The defense looked very good against the two pretty good offenses of Tecumseh and Huron. Tha Falcons have used a solid scheme, good speed and physicality while giving up just 6.7 ppg.

Before the season started I thought this could be a real barn burner. I think SMCC is better than everyone thought while Grosse Ile may not be the team they were a year ago this time. The Red Devils do have a chance because of Mitroka and a pretty solid defense, but I think this SMCC's game to lose. Prediction: SMCC 35 Grosse Ile 13.

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

I don't think anyone will be within three touchdowns of SMCC this Huron League season.

How do you win a game 34-0 after turning the ball over five times?

Riverview is obviously the team I misjudged this season.

Grosse Ile bounced back nicely after getting shutout in week 2.

Will Huron bounce back or fold?

Did Airport's Dylan Meiring play this week?

When do Jefferson and Flat Rock play?

Riverview's senior QB Drew Kroll is really having a nice season.

Should I head out to the island to see Grosse Ile/SMCC on Friday?

Milan can really right their season with victory over Huron this week.

Did anyone else notice former Cass Tech junior DE Malcolm Strickland roaming the Huron sideline with a #75 jersey on?

Call me crazy, but I think SMCC's Bryce Windham may be  one of the best two way players in the league.

Same old Lions people.

Getting tougher and tougher to do the blog this season. Anyone interested in taking over? BN? EM?

Milan @ Jefferson

Milan (1-1) saw their 14 game league winning streak halted by Riverview 21-7 Friday/Saturday while Jefferson (0-2) fell to Airport 31-21. Milan won last year's game 47-12. Milan has won seven straight in the series.

The Big Reds sputtered last week against Riverview with turnovers and penalities. Look for the offense to keep the ball on the ground as much as possible this week. Milan's defense should be fine. They only gave up 14 points last week with 7 more coming on a pick six by the offfense.

Jefferson has shown that they like to throw the ball around this season, but the Bears will need to establish the run if they are going to win games. Defensively the Bears are giving up 30 ppg, they will need to be better than that this week.

We will be able to tell a lot about each team and where they stand after this week. Milan is still a good team in my estimation and Jefferson is trying to be one. Prediction: Milan 28 Jefferson 14

Grosse Ile @ Flat Rock

Both teams are coming off of lopsided shutout losses last week. Grosse Ile (1-1) was beaten by Huron 35-0 while Flat Rock (0-2) lost 42-0 to SMCC. Grosse Ile won last season's game 42-7 and have the last five in the series.

Flat Rock was fortunate to get out of the SMCC game with no injuries and should be fully healthy on Friday. Dontel Hampton will once again lead the Ram offense while Eric Antolak leads the defense.

The big concern this week for GI is whether senior QB Andrew Mitroka will be available or not. If he doesn't play the Red Devils will be led by sophomore Justin Moores. The defense will also led by a sophomore in defensive lineman Dominic Trombley.

This match up totally changes if Mitroka is out of the lineup. The Rams could keep it close if he is out, but I see a victory for the Red Devils either way. Prediction: Grosse Ile 34 Flat Rock 14

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Airport @ Riverview

Riverview (2-0) is off to an impressive start after beating defending league champ Milan 21-7 last week while Airport (2-0) dropped Jefferson 31-21. The Pirates won last seasons game 27-10, but the Jets have won seven out of the last ten.

Airport has used a solid defense and a hard nosed running game in route to victories in the first two games. The Jets have a big offensive line that has opened holes for their three RB's and the defense has been physical.

Riverview has adapted well to a new coach. Eric Gant and Tyler Chase have helped the Pirates establish a good running game. The defense led by Steve Pinkava has been opportunistic and good enough the first two weeks.

Another good early season match up here. This is a game I saw Airport winning early in the season, but now I'm not so sure. Guess I will flip a coin. Prediction: Airport 21 Riverview 20

Huron @ SMCC

Huron (2-0) is coming off of a surprising 35-0 win over Grosse Ile while SMCC (2-0) beat Flat Rock 42-0 in a storm shortened game. The Falcons shut out the Chiefs last season 28-0 and have won 27 straight in the series.

SMCC will once again look to pound the ball offensively with their running game. The line is led by Kyle Bausman and Mitchell Poupard. On defense, the Falcons have been pretty dominant giving up just 13 points in the first two games.

Huron will most likely continue with their running game that is led by senior linemen Chase McKay and Jon Krug. Huron was able to shut out GI's dangerous offensive attack last week, but will have to be better this week if they are to win.

Tough game to figure out here. I think SMCC is a State Championship caliber team while Huron is still trying to prove themselevs a bit. My heart is with Huron, but the safe pick is to go with history and the league favorite. Prediction: SMCC 28 Huron 17

Monday, September 8, 2014

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

That sure was some crazy weather Friday night.

Probably a smart move calling the SMCC/Flat Rock game at half.

I guess Milan's league winning streak couldn't go on forever.

Will Airport's Dylan Meiring hold up if he continues to average 37 carries per game?

Riverview looks like they are a pretty solid team.

Did anyone expect Huron to pitch a shutout and force a running clock on Grosse Ile?

I think Jefferson has thrown the ball more in two games than Cisco did during the decade of the 90's.

Impressive 2-0 start for Airport.

Game of the week? SMCC/Huron or Airport/Riverview?

Coldwater rolled Milan's week one opponent Marshall 42-0.

Could be a long season for Grosse Ile if Mitroka isn't healthy.

Is SMCC's Travis Vuich the X-Factor for the Falcons this season?

Who was better at LB Friday/Saturday? Riverview's Tyler Chase or Milan's Cortez Gray?

Looks like Flat Rock might have an opportunity to get a win Friday.

Sunday, September 7, 2014

Week 2 Stars

Senior DB Nolan Glime had a 49 yard pick six as Riverview ended Milan's 14 game Huron League winning streak 21-7.

Ian Robinson led the Huron offense with 168 rushing yards and 3 TD's in the Chief's impressive 35-0 shutout of Grosse Ile.

Dylan Meiring is turning into a workhorse for the 2-0 Airport Jets. The junior RB carried the ball 33 times for 238 yards in the 31-21 victory over Jefferson.

SMCC junior RB Justin Carrabino continued his excellent play as he scored 3 TD's in the Falcons 42-0 victory over Flat Rock.

Riverview junior RB Eric Gant rushed for 124 yards on 29 carries in the victory over Milan.

Senior OL/DL Jonathan Krug of Huron played both ways for the Chiefs on Friday. He recorded 6 tackles while also opening holes for the Chief offense that had 376 yards of offense.

Riverview @ Milan

Both teams are coming off of wins in week one. Riverview (1-0) shrugged of a slow 1st half and defeated Garden City 41-15 while Milan (1-0) came from behind to defeat Marshall 26-21. Milan won year's early season match up 41-28 and have won six out of the last ten games in this league rivalry.

Milan felt the effects of two Ypsi Lincoln transfers last week as junior QB E.J. Medvecz led the Big Reds in rushing while junior LB Cortez Gray led the defense with 10 tackles. The Big Reds are more than just those players and seem to be picking up where they left off the Huron League season last year.

Riverview took a half before they really got going in week 1. Senior QB Drew Krull will once again lead the offense as the Pirates have mutliple offensive threats. Defensively, Tyler Chase and company will have to find a way to slow down Medvecz and Big Red sophomore RB Trace Lindeman.

This could be a very good game. Riverview coach Derek McLaughlin is a seasoned veteran and has seen offenses like Milan's in the Downriver League. With that said, I will not pick against the Big Reds. Prediction: Milan 21 Riverview 14

Jefferson @ Airport

Airport (1-0) is coming off of a thrilling 25-22 come-from-behind victory while Jefferson (0-1) is coming off a disappointing 29-0 loss to Ida. The Jets won last seasons match up 28-14 and have won seven straight in this rivalry.

Airport is looking to improve to 2-0 on the season and will try to do so with a punishing ground game led by Dylan Meiring. The Jets rushed for over 300 yards in week 1. The defense stepped it up last week in the 2nd half after spotting Adrian a 22-14 halftime lead.

Jefferson sputtered on both sides of the ball in their week 1 loss to Ida. The Bears will need to stay away from mistakes and penalities if they are to give the Jets a game. The offense will once again be led by QB Justin Kull and RB Sean Kirchner.

Both teams suprise me last week with their outcomes. This is a solid rivalry that will be hard fought even though Airport has dominated the win column the last seven years. Prediction: Airport 28 Jefferson 14

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

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

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Flat Rock @ SMCC

SMCC (1-0) is coming off of an impressive 35-13 win over Tecumseh while Flat Rock (0-1) fell 28-21 to Riverview Gabriel Richard. The Falcons won last seasons match up 50-7 and have won 12 consecutive in the series.

Offensively, the Falcons rely on the running game, but do have a feared passing attack with QB Bryce Windham and WR Travis Vuich.  Junior RB Justin Carrabino is one of the best backs to come through SMCC in quite a few years, but is just one of three or four capable backs.

Defense is where the Falcons will hang their hats this season and will likely determine their ultimate success. Senior Trystin Robinson and junior Darius Marks will lead the defense this week against the Rams.

Flat Rock scored 21 points in the opener against GR and that was more than any game last season. The Rams are led on offensive by explosive sophomore Dontel Hampton and junior QB Justin Roberts.

The Ram defense gave up 28 points in the opener and that was certainly much better than the 51 ppg that they gave up last season. This week players like Eric Antolak and Robert Salter on the defensive line will need to step up to stop the Falcon high powered offense.

This is certainly a tough opener for the Rams who are much better than a season ago. This looks like an opportunity for SMCC to get everyone some playing time. Prediction SMCC 49 Flat Rock 7

Monday, September 1, 2014

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

Looks like SMCC and Giarmo got the best of Al Romano who is one of the best coaches in the state. Maybe Giarmo is too!

Was that a good win for Milan? Marshall is a solid program, but some say no since the departure of legendary coach Rich Hulkow left for the college ranks four years ago.

Looks like GI's Andrew Mitroka is fully healed. Look for him to play some defense this week if needed.

Nice comeback win for the Jets. Although Adrian was 2-7 last season, they handled Airport and returned a good portion of their line up.

Huron got a win, but Summit needs to open with someone like Annapolis or Flat Rock.

Riverview spanked Garden City who is favored by some to win their red division of the Western Wayne Athletic Conference.

I was surprised that Ida routed Jefferson.

Flat Rock looked 100% better than last year. I'm not sure where a win will come from though.

Best offensive performance week 1? Best defensive performance?

A few transfers around the league had a positive effect on their teams

Milan/Riverview should be an interesting match up. GI/Huron too!

Do they just grow kids bigger these days? I saw some big kids this week.

Is it fair to start the season before schools actually starts for everyone?

Is Milan the favorite in league play or someone else?
