Website Rebuild/Under Construction

At the New Year, we said there would be some big changes coming to the blog. This will be in an attempt to be bigger and better than ever.

Construction will take some time and you most likely won't see any posts out of us for a least a month or so.

You may also notice that www.fridaynightvictors.com may take you somewhere else completely, that is because we will be switching from blogger to a wordpress application.

If you want to find the existing blog, you can simply type in, copy/paste or click on http://huronleaguefootball.blogspot.com

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, but we are hoping you will like what we come up with.

If you have any questions feel free to shoot us an email at fridaynightvictors@gmail.com or huronleaguefootball@gmail.com.

All Blog 2018

This is the first time ever we have done an All Blog team. It was tough with 16 teams and us picking an offense and a defense. There will be 12 players on each side of the ball plus a kicker and a punter. We also included our Overall Player of the Year, as well as, Defensive Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year.

Overall Player of the Year
E/RB/DB/KR Jalen Johnson Sr, Monroe

Chris's Comment: I saw Johnson play three times this season. He was one of the best football players I have seen all year. People came to their feet every time he touched the ball. Johnson was one of the many reasons you saw a resurgence in Monroe High football this season.

Offensive Player of the Year
E/RB Tristen Hines Jr, Milan

Gary's Comment:  A threat to take it to the house every time he touched the ball. His versatility is what makes him so valuable. Run it, catch it, he can do it all. 

Defensive Player of the Year
LB Johnny Blanzy Jr, Grosse Ile

Chris's Comment: Blanzy was a man among boys in every game this year. The physical junior was virtually unblockable and when he tackled you, you knew it.

Coach of the Year
Jon Bodner, Grosse Ile 9-1

Bodner led the Grosse Ile to their first 9-0 regular season since 1965. The Red Devils fell in the playoffs 28-21 to Chelsea, which finished runner-up in Division 4 this season.
