Please be sure to listen to the podcast. Huron @ Airport Preview Podcast
In my opinion this is the Game of the Week in the league. Huron (1-0) is coming off of a 22-18 victory over Avondale while Airport (1-0) is coming off of a 31-14 road win @ Dundee. Huron won last years game 29-7 and has won 3 consecutive games in this rivalry. Airport leads the all-time series 43-12.
Huron needed some late game heroics to secure the victory over Avondale last week. Junior QB Brett McKay accounted for 258 yards on the ground and air for the Chiefs. The Chief's offense centers around McKay along with RB's Reed Smith and Drew Leininger while junior WR Phil Martin is an outside receiving threat. The defense relies on seniors Nik Becker and Garrett Krzeminski along with juniors Jared Kozlowski and Mike Mitchell.
The Airport offense is driven by junior QB Tanner Jeska and features junior RB Michael Foor who ran for 3 TD's in week 1. The defense is led by senior LB's Brent Mossburg and Justin Goretski. Sophomore DB Bryce Bondy is a star in the making.
This should be a really good competititive football game. Two talented teams with two really good kickers. I think Huron has the bigger up side, but Airport is the better team right now. Give me the home team. Prediction: Airport 21 Huron 20
