Chris and I were able to see several teams today. Here is a brief synopsis of what we saw.
Flat Rock: Flat Rock was impressive against Berkley, Thurston and Edsel Ford. Their defense was active and the offense was a s diverse as usual. Don’t look for the Rams to go away anytime soon. They will be a tough opponent against any team on their schedule.
Riverview: Thoroughly dominated two sub-par teams in Southgate Anderson and Lincoln Park. If anyone thought View was going to take a big step back this year, think again. Physical up front with excellent ball carriers. Wood, the QB, threw some nice balls and made some plays from his corner spot. I’m not sure if Southgate gained a single yard. No joke.
Huron: The Chiefs played some teams still working things out as well; in Melvindale, Summit and Annapolis. Huron has a nice mix of players. The Sophomore QB throws a nice ball and has good size. Blosser ran hard and had a big day. Huron will contend to get in the top 4.
SMCC: Played a solid Trenton team and D2 Roseville. The Falcon defense will be stiff this year. Big plays behind the line of scrimmage helped tie Trenton at 7-7 and beat Roseville 7-0, only playing 1Q in that one. CC moved the ball station to station, as they do, against a pretty good Trenton defense. CC will make a run at the top tier in the league.
Monroe: The Trojans ended up not scrimmaging today over at Wyandotte. Not sure what happened and I didn’t get the memo. Chris did manage to watch Canton/Belleville. Belleville is as good as billed. The Tigers scored 6 times on Canton, a team that eliminated them in the Regional Final last season in just 14 plays.
Tell us what teams you saw and your thoughts.
