  1. Riverview’s QB really showed what he was about in the Tecumseh game stepped up when senior running back Anthony bowman went down.

      I agree river rat. They called his number when needed and he stepped up big time. And the kids only 15.. Go bucs

    1. Obviously Graham had a great game. As Frank would say, he is the straw that stirs the drink. I thought it was a great opportunity to give some other kids from flat rock credit.

      1. You’re right Chris, it’s good to see some of the other kids get some credit for sure. They’ve all been playing their butts off this year as well.
