the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

FL QB Kevin Sousa
Last week: Lake Nona was destroyed yet again, this time dropping a 7-41 decision to Sebring. The grisly details:
The Blue Streaks' Clarence Counts recorded the first of four interceptions against Lake Nona star Kevin Sousa on the first play of the game...
Lake Nona was able to avoid the shutout when Sousa found Dmitri Fontana behind the defense on a 28-yard touchdown pass with 35 seconds remaining in the third quarter...
The Sebring defense made life miserable for Sousa all game, holding the future Michigan Wolverine to 20 yards rushing and 8 of 17 passing for 126 yards.
"He's a good player," Sutton said. "Our defensive line did a good job and our middle linebackers spied on him, so we did pretty good... We wanted to shut him out," he said. "We know how good we are. We could have shut them out easily. We had a few mistakes and we just have to get better at it."
Article 2. Sousa has uploaded highlights of his last two games:
If that's what the blocking looks like on the good plays, I can only imagine how bad it is when he's forced into poor throws.

OH DE Chris Rock
Last week: DeSales lost to Orchard Lake St. Mary's 0-24. Game highlights. I was there, so enjoy some original video (Rock is #54, playing defensive end and right tackle):
Those highlights should be HD, but obviously are not. I'll try to figure out what the technology problem is for the next edition. Scouting report:
I was not impressed with Rock's play. It's possible he was just having a bad night, but there have been reports from this entire season that suggest Rock is "just a guy" out there. Though St. Mary's gameplanned a bit to keep him out of the game (running away from him, double-teaming him, etc.), that's not the only reason he wasn't a factor.
He was routinely stoned by St. Mary's tackle #72, and it's not like that guy's going to go on to play Division-1 football. For being the biggest (not fattest) guy out there, Rock's strength seemed to be seriously lacking, and his movement skills left something to be desired.
With a guy Rock's size, you assume that a couple years under a collegiate strength and conditioning program will mold his body into a more powerful, quicker one, but it's not at that point right now. On offense, Rock's effort, even on simple cut blocks, left a lot to be desired.
This week: DeSales takes on Maumee on Thursday night..
MI DE/LB Brennen Beyer
Last week: Plymouth took down Livonia Franklin, 24-7. Beyer had a touchdown catch:
Plymouth snapped the 7-7 tie on its first second-half drive when Austin connected with Beyer with a 34-yard spiral to make it 14-7.
The article also mentions Beyer's coach praised his defensive efforts.
Article 2 provides a bit more detail on the reception:
senior receiver Brennen Beyer (4 catches, 78 yards, 1 TD)...
According to Beyer, Plymouth’s offensive coordinator told him he “saw an opening on the slant and that they were going to throw it to me."
This week: 3-1 Plymouth hosts Westland John Glenn on Friday at 7.
TX LB Kellen Jones
Last week: St. Pius X had a bye.
|Kellen Jones 2010|

|Worthing||W 20-12||DNP - ankle|
This week: St. Pius takes on St. Thomas Catholic on Friday at 7:30.
OH CB/S Greg Brown
Last week: Fremont Ross pasted University 38-10. Only Brown mention:
After a 40-yard run from Greg Brown, Gabe Tayar knocked in a 32-yard field goal.
The Fremont Ross Forum blog on the game.
Update from the Cleveland Benedictine a couple weeks back: we already knew that Brown kicked off the game with a big touchdown reception, and his final stats were 4 receptions for 147 yards.
This week: The Little Giants take on Findlay on Friday.
MI CB Delonte Hollowell
Next Week: Cass Tech goes to Detroit Mumford on Friday at 4.
