Airport @ Grosse ile

Airport (1-5) dropped their 5th straight game when they lost 50-28 to SMCC while Grosse Ile lost their first game of the season to Milan 27-6. The Red Devils won last year's game 42-21 and lead the all-time series 38-26-2.

Airport continues to struggle and have given up 32 ppg to 3 of the bottom teams in the Huron League standings. The offense was able to put up 28 points last week against SMCC.



Grosse Ile is still stinging from last weeks defeat, but are still a very good offensive and defensive team. Look for the Red Devils to refocus as they get ready for the playoffs and a possible rematch with Milan down the road.

I'm not sure what to expect here. Does Grosse Ile rebound or does Airport rally. Nothing would surprise me. Pick: Grosse Ile 33 Airport 19 

Gary's Pick: Grosse Ile 45 Airport 14

I've just seen so many mistakes, lineman running passed players they're suppose to block, backs going the wrong way, a penalty at the wrong time, or a drive killing turnover. They have been able to move the ball at times and things like this keep happening, I know there is talent there I just feel if the kids put it together they could upset some people, and with all the negativity surrounding the program this could help a lot. GO JETS!!

Nothing against GI, but I hope Airport can win. It would be great for the players and coaches.

I've noticed you've kind of singled out the offense! I think the defense is by far we're we show the most struggles! Missed reads and big plays have killed us on that side of the ball! I'm not saying the offense doesn't have its own problems by any means. But you can't give up 30+ points a game and expect to win! These young men need to show up mentally on both sides of the ball! That could possibly result in a win. And if #25 didn't show up that would help to! LOL!!! GO JETS

Yeah I realized that after I posted, that's my bad, thanks for correcting me.. Defensive Line standing straight up and getting driven off of the ball, among other things too. But like you said hopefully they show up mentally and showcase what they have but haven't shown since the first half of week 1

Yea kids - just show up mentally because THAT'S been the problem.

Watch film! Watch film! Watch film! Defense can't read a Sunday morning comic let alone an offensive scheme that they have been coached on! If you don't see it your as blind as them! I'm not a coach ! I'm a AP DAD who watches film! Players are not in position they are capable of playing at this level! It takes more than brawn to play LB or DB at this level!

The Red Devils are going to come out angry. This game will not be close. I'm seeing a shut out in Airports future.

AP Dad, glad you see that and it happens on both sides of the ball, mental focus is HUGE. @2:53 you are a part of the problem and I think you know where you can stick your sarcasm

Here's to hoping Airport can put this season's disappointments behind them and give the Islanders all they can handle. EM

Can't wait to see the adjustments AP coaching have made during practice this week. Or will it be the same old Jets?

AP pics up a spare in the 10th frame to pull ahead of GI for the win!

Watching film is huge. Every team needs to do it. It is definitely part of the formula for success.

Keep it positive Jet fans, your day will come. We all set ourselves up for failure when we get excited about the lower levels and wonder why success isn't the same at next level. I almost think a mediocre JV and Freshman team is a better way to go. Nobody else on here gets as wound up as Airport about the lower levels. That's a path to failure in my book. Lots of history at your school, you will be back. Been there, maybe still there, done that.

Mental focus starts with coaching. Yes it's up to the kids to buy in but 16-17 year old kids aren't just brought up mentally focused. This is taught all summer long and on the practice field everyday. If players are out of position it tells me they're not being taught what to do. I also think a lot of these kids need to start playing both ways. This program isn't that big to have a 2 platoon system. Your very best 11 should be on the field!!

See, here we go again, yes I'm sure the coaches put all of that time in NOT teaching the kids what they're suppose to do. I'm sure the coaches are telling the o-line to run past people who they're suppose to block, I'm sure the coaches are telling the d-line to stand straight up and get blown off the ball, I could go on. C'mon people listen to yourselves...

You don't watch much film do you! Well you might but probably just your kid! I watch the films! Constantly the same kids getting the remarks about being out of position! Almost 40 kids on the team! 2 way playing takes that advantage away! We should be able to tire the opposition out but we don't! Best 11 I'm sure includes your boy who should never leave the field in your opinion?? GO Jets

30 kids ! Sorry

9:22 your right! Airport just has absolutely no talent! Let's just cancel the rest of the season and any thereafter? By the way kids a back huh! Always runs were he's supposed to huh? That's what I though! Not!!!

Anonymous said...

Can we quit complaining about this already. GET OVER IT !!!

UNLESS YOUR GOING OUT ON THE FIELD AND COACHING YOURSELF, PUT IT TO REST.

Nobodies kids will be playing on Sundays, many not even on Saturdays.

You win, you lose, life will go one either way.

10:35 you are rite! Probably every single kid will never play after high school! But what would this blog be with no banter among bloggers? Max prep score!!! Boring!!!💤💤 Go Jets!!!

Did anyone say there wasn't talent? Even talented kids make mistakes, or do something a coach didn't tell them to do, even hear the wrong play/defensive call hell some kids are just outright uncoachable but none of the parents want to hear that now do they?

Anonymous said...

Nope. Not going to stop complaining. Don't like it - don't read it.

This probably won't get published but here it goes anyway...
Things won't change at AP until there is a change at the defensive coach position. The def coach is running the show pretty much anyway and until he moves on he is holding Baas back. Sorry - it's the truth.
Won't get approved to post but has to be said anyway.
Go Jets!

That's crazy. Even if he did take over that would be on the head coach for letting it happen. Get over it. It's high school football. They're doing their best.

Nope. Not going to get over it. I'm going to continue to post my thoughts and impressions as long as that Blue Publish button exists. If you don't like the comments well, don't read them. Oh and btw - if going 1-8 ( in back to back seasons) is what you call "doing their best" - then I think you just supported what us AP fans have been saying. If 2-16 is the best you can do then take your best someplace else.
