Thi is the Game of the Week in the Huron League. Grosse Ile (2-2) is coming off of a 56-14 victory over Flat Rock while SMCC (4-0) beat Huron 27-7. SMCC won last season's match up 28-0 and leads the all-time series 39-14-2.
The Red Devils have strung together back to back wins after losing at home to Jefferson. Senior RB/LB Tim Beach is quietly having a solid season on both sides of the ball for Grosse Ile while junior QB Justin Moores has been efficient and solid in his first year leading the team.
SMCC simply does what they do very well. They run the ball at you every play with one of three backs then surprise you with a pass. Senior Hunter Coombe has shown why he is one of the best two-way players in the league. First year Varsity Head Coach Adam Kipf and his staff have quickly settled into being a solid staff that is molding a team that is capable of making another long playoff run.
The Falcons have shown that they are very good at stopping the run, but will see a very different look this week as the Red Devils will spread the field and then use every weapon they have to exploit you. SMCC's defense is very good, but the secret to their success may be the fact that the offense eats up huge chunks of time with each possession. Pick: SMCC 34 Grosse Ile 19
