Huron @ Airport Preview

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

A really good kicker with an off night by the looks of the score.

Or could be a great night with 2 FG's and 2 XP's.

I expect a tight game the whole way, hopefully Mossberg can make another highlight reel catch or 2 like he did last week. Airport 24, Huron 20. EM

Which kickers/ punters also play soccer in the league?

There is no way Airport will win this game. Airport has a few decent athletes coming up and everybody thinks they are world beaters. The main people pushing how good they think they will be is themselves. I'm not buying it. Sorry. They won one game a year ago and barely won that. They easily could have been winless.


Huron 35 Airport 12

HUNTER MORSE IS A GREAT KICKER, HE COULD BE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE GAME JUST AS HE WAS LAST WEEK

Not sure if he plays soccer, but I was impressed with Milan's kicker last week. Very steady.

Nobody said Airport is a world beater. And yes Airport has a good chance to win. This game could really go either way. EM

Airport will finish top four this season, they were tough last year, but they could not put anything together. Huron may be a little hyped up this season, but I still believe this is going to be a smash mouth, run heavy, trench warfare game. This one will come down to the wire I think the Jets are due.

AP-28
Huron-21

Huron is not Dundee. I see Huron being much more prepared than what they were last week. Should be a great game but I think Huron wins the turnover battle in this one and pulls out the win. Jets need to keep the ball on the ground. Throwing it up to Mossberg is gonna cost them in this game.

He plays soccer.

From what I've heard, I'm thinking that the team that takes to the air the best might pull this game out. Success in the running game sets up the play action. Sounds like a fun one to watch!

Has Airport changed their offense at all or are they still going with the ACE package? Jet sweep anyone?

Jets take it. Mike Foor will dominate the ground game and mossburg will be mossburg and dominate, gonna be that way the whole season Airport 28 Huron 14

Same stuff for the most part. EM

"Mossburg will be Mossburg". What does that mean? Because, based on their 1-8 record last year, I'm not interpreting that like you appear to mean it :)

I'm not saying throw it to Mossberg 20 times, 3 or 4 will be enough. I doubt Huron has anybody that can cover him one on one. EM

Huron had a int thrown to Mossberg with one on one coverage last season. That Huron player is playing this season also. Should be a good game!

last year.....LAST YEAR.....LAST YEAR PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE PAST WELL PAUL HARVEY WOULD SAY "YOU KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY" GO JETS live in the moment !

Tired of hearing about Moseberg, does anybody else play for Airport. I would like to hear more about how Airport is much improved, I'm sure it more than just Moseburg. I don't even know who he is.

I think Foor has to have 30 carries in order for the Jets to win this one. They need to pound it on the ground and play good defense.

Mossberg is still only average in his blocking skills. Other than that, he is as good as you should expect a 6'-3" receiver to be in the league. I'm a lot more interested in seeing how Mike Foor continues to develop his ground game, and whether or not his line will step up and make some holes for him. That's what you really oughta pay attention to with Airport

If you don't know who Mossberg is now you sure will know who he is when your team plays against him. Look for the huge tall kid flying around the football field!!

I agree with 10:38. Mike Foor could be right up there with Airports best running backs by the time he graduates. However, I don't think this coaching staff will utilize his ability like the past coaches would have. Redmond would feed him 30-40 times a game if not more.

You guys are really stuck on this, wow. I hope they made the locker door bigger at Airport so everybody's head can get through it. Obviously, no TEAM concept.

GO CHIEFS !!!

They actually did put wider doors in.

That is Airports down fall, if you feed #4 the ball 30-40 time or more then EVERYONE EVEN THE SPECTATORS IN THE STANDS know exactly where the ball is going. Easy to defend, when you have the talent in the back field that Airport has had in the last 4 years,and you move the ball around in the back field AP marches down the field. You make them a 1 dimensional back field easy to defend and they go no ware.
