Grosse Ile (5-0) is coming off of an impressive 28-0 win over SMCC while Milan (5-0) beat Huron 42-7 in New Boston. Milan won last year's game 44-7 and lead the all-time series 18-9.
Grosse Ile had another outstanding week running the ball as they rushed for 292 yards against SMCC. Senior RB Andrew Vollmerhausen leads the charge again this week, but will have help from fellow seniors; Josh Sheppard, Josh Moskall and Justin Moores. The defense has been outstanding and is led by seniors; Dominic Trombley, Aaron Blanzy, Holden Green and Owen Wiewiura.
Milan rolled up 388 yards on the ground last week against Huron. Demetrius Barnes and Trace Lindeman once again will lead the Big Red ground attack. The defense is led by seniors Mike Furtney, Austin Reed and Brian Blansett. Freshman Tristin Hines is a star in the making and leads the league in interceptions with five.
This is most likely a pick'em game that could go either way. Both teams run the ball well and are opportunistic with the pass. Each team has a physical defense that can limit the others ground game.
