First Day of Practice

Monday was the first day around the state for high school football teams to practice. Those include the 14 teams that we cover here at Friday Night Victors. Once again, the Monroe News and The News Herald did a nice job of getting out and covering the teams the first day of camp. You can read their articles here:

I was out at Jefferson yesterday and CC for a bit today. Both teams are working hard and look quite solid.

Gary I heard SMCC has some decent size and if they get a oline rolling , watch out ??? Do you agree ?

Who are some backs and recievers at Monroe that you think will make an impact Gary?

Nothing from Riverview?

Gary Hauf said...

News Herald will have something on Riverview I believe. When they do, we will get it up. Or who knows, maybe Chris will head out there and do a little piece.

Gary Hauf said...

Team previews will be coming out shortly but to answer your question. Monroe has quite a few nice pieces at the "skilled" positions. To name a few... Donovan Issac slot/CB
Spencer Knapp slot/S
Lane Kirk WR/DB

Wow, 22 players for Milan. I had hoped that they were past the point of having less than 30 kids on the roster. It sounds like they will have a few players possibly joining the team or returning to the team after healing up, but that's a crazy low number.

Gary Hauf said...

A tier system might look something like this:

Tier 1: Bedford, Carlson, Monroe

Tier 2: Milan, Huron, CC

Tier 3: Riverview, Flat rock, Dundee

Tier 4: Ida, GI, Airport, Jefferson, Mason

CC and FR should be tier 4 with Jefferson and Ida moving to tier 3. Putting CC that high after losing a lot following a subpar season doesn't makes sense to me.

Gary Hauf said...

Maybe... but both CC and FR have plenty.

Gary Hauf said...

The only thing I might change would be to move View up to tier 2.

Smcc should be Tier 1.. the most successful Football program in the history of high school football in monroe county. More league titles then anyone. Nobody even close. More playoff wins then anybody. More state titles then anybody.. people bitching about kicking them out of the league.. nobody comes close to Smcc in football..

This tier thing I hope you are referring to enrollment size? MHS Alum..

Gary isn't Smcc ranked 20th out of all high schools in the state in football? Is there anybody close to them in Monroe county?

Monroe Carlson overrated!!

Gary Hauf said...

Nope, just me piecing the teams together talent wise as I see them.

Duffy was a solid hire at Airport. Hopefully they can surprise some people this year. EM

Revamped coaching staff spells a better season here in Carleton,,,look at the schedule, the Jets could really have a good season

Dundee- W
Grosse Ile- W
Huron- W played them close last year
Jefferson- W
Riverview- Toss up game
Flat Rock- W
SMCC- W My upset pick of the season, Duffy does know the SMCC system
Milan- L
Tecumseh- L , Tecumseh could be 5-3 coming into this game

I like the confidence at Airport but you probably won't beat Huron,Riverview,CC or Flat Rock this year. Not sure about the rest of the games.

OH- Milan game is a no brainer.

Anonymous said...

I could see Milan taking a step back with the loss of the two studs in the backfield. EM

From what I hear that O and D line for Milan is no joke.

I agree. I mean how is Milan that much different than Jefferson. They both lost a very good quarterback and running back and they played two very competitive games last year against each other that could have went either way.

That being said I still believe both teams will have a good year.

Huron league champs!

How is Milan different then Jefferson? Coaching for one. Two.... 3 out of the last 5 league titles...Three.... 9 wins or more in 4 out of the past 5 seasons.

. And Jefferson loses prob one of the best hard nosed players in league history. No offense. But Jefferson wins one game last season without Humphrey. Kids like that don't come along very often around there. Milan tends to have those difference makers year in and year out. Over the last 5 years.... Dukes, Kanitiz, Barnes, Lindemin etc.

Huron league Fan

We'll see what kids make plays when they see each other this season..

Airport goes 7-2 or 6-3 and makes playoffs this year. There's no way they come close to a losing season. A lot of speed on that defense and the line is looking very solid!! Duffey knows exactly what to do with these kids to get the winning mentality back!!

And AP will be happy with that just make playoffs year after year and be proud .......can you go further? Speed so are they physical or tough can they beat Huron or Riverview or Milan or Chelsea beat the big boys then come back

Anonymous said...

2 wins in two seasons. Beat at least one good team before a comment like that. So hasn't had a decent team in 5 years. Blame it on coaching or what you want. Just beat someone decent.

Anonymous said...

The last 2 comments are absolutely stupid. If they lose to Huron, Riverview, Milan, and Tecumseh they make the playoffs. Beat someone decent?? They haven't beat anyone. Does that mean Airport people can't comment?

Chris Schultz said...

Unfortunately anonymous people are notorious for leaving dumb comments. Of course I do too sometimes.

Chris Schultz said...

Great comment by someone, but unfortunately the one line didn't enable us to post it.
