Milan (1-0) is coming off of a week 1, 27-13 victory over Adrian while Flat Rock (1-0) is fresh off of a 48-0 dismantling of Summit Academy. The Big Reds won last years game by a score of 55-6. Milan leads the all-time series 34-10.
Milan is simply doing what Milan does on offense. It is pretty much, spread the field and let Trace Lindeman or Demetrius Barnes read the defense and go. Defensively, freshman Tristin Hines showed he belonged last week as he recorded 7 tackles and 2 interceptions.
Flat Rock used special teams last week to get things rolling against Summit then relied on junior QB Jacob Dotson to run an offense that features playmakers Sage Daniels and Anthony Higginbotham. The defense was led last week by juniors Sameer Tayeb, Mason Hamilton and Blake Montiy. They will be severely tested this week by the Big Red offense.
This is a match up of a solid program against a young, up and coming program. Both schools are led by very good coaches in Buck Reaume and Jesse Hoskins with the latter most likely the best coach in the league. The Rams are getting better, but probably a year away from beating Milan. Prediction: Milan 35 Flat Rock 21
