Huron (5-4) is coming off of a 56-18 thrashing of Summit Academy while Trenton (8-1) beat Taylor Kennedy 49-0 to win a share of the Downriver League crown. These two teams have only met once in school history. The Chiefs beat the Trojans in last season's District Final 44-27.
Huron expected to have a better season and was fortunate to make the playoffs at 5-4. The Chiefs chances to win rely on the health of QB Matt Hartwick. The senior has thrown for over 1,100 yards and has rushed for nearly 800 while accounting for 17 TD's. He missed last week's game with a broken hand. Senior RB Jacob Fryer has rushed for 752 yards and 8 TD's. The offensive line is led by senior Dale Midkiff. The 6-6 285 lb OT has had an outstanding season. The defense is led by junior LB Nik Becker and senior DE Jacon Davis. Junior kicker/punter Hunter Morse is a valuable resource and has hit FG's this season of 48 and 49 yards.
Trenton is led by a senior Pat Czarnecki. The athletic QB has thrown for over 1,000 yards and has rushed for 800 while accounting for 19 TD's. Flat Rock transfer Dontel Hampton has proved to be a valuable resource for the Trojans. The junior has rushed for 342 yards and has caught 21 passes for 426 yards while scoring 11 TD's this season He also contributes on defense as he has recorded 42 tackles and 1 Int. Senior Loren Sauve leads the Trojans in tackles along with junior Connor Charping.
This could be a good game. The QB's are fun to watch and are clones of each other. Trenton has a very good team capable of making a run in the playoffs. Huron has underachieved all season and this could be the game that the Chiefs have been waiting for all year. Pick: Trenton 34 Huron 24
