Adrian (6-4) is coming off of a 27-20 overtime victory over Grosse Ile while Milan (9-1) beat Monroe Jefferson 27-22 last week. These two teams met in week one with Milan winning 27-13.
The Maples surprised 8-1 Grosse Ile last week with a diverse offense and a quick defense. Adrian has a solid core of seniors that is led offensively by QB Tyler Shephard. Freshman Antwan Ficklin Jr. has proven to be an impact player.
Milan faced a stiff test against Jefferson last week. The Big Red stars made their presence felt as senior Demetrius Barnes and Trace Lindeman had big games along with freshman defensive phenom Tristen Hines.
This should be a great game. I caught the 2nd half of the first game earlier this season. The is a favorable matchup for both teams and is most likely a pick'em game. Pick: Milan 28 Adrian 26
Gary's Pick: Milan 28 Adrian 21
