New Commit MI RB Justice Hayes

Game 1. Grand Blanc defeated Carman-Ainsworth 21-7. Hayes had a good game:

Hayes finished with 149 yards on 18 carries. He also threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to quarterback Ryan Morley, who began the play by tossing a lateral to Hayes. Hayes attracted a pass rush, then threw to his left to Morley, who had plenty of room down the left sideline with 8:20 left in the first quarter.

"There were guys in my area, so I had to hurry up and get if off quick," Hayes said. "It was a very difficult throw for me."

...but also fumbled in the end zone, giving Carman-Ainsworth their only score.

Game 2. Grand Blanc was pasted by Canton, 20-62. Hayes had just 20 yards on 9 carries.

Game 3. Grand Blanc dropped an overtime decision to Milford, 35-42. Hayes did most of his damage as a receiver:

Justice Hayes caught 11 passes for 98 yards and one score

His junior teammate Detrick Goff got most of the rushing yardage.

Game 4. Hayes missed the game with a wrist injury as Grand Blanc beat Brighton 27-20. More on the wrist injury:

As for Hayes, Delaney doesn’t know when his star running back will be able to play again. “At first it was thought to be a bad sprain, but the swelling never went down,” Delaney said. “It looked as bad last week on Friday as it did on Saturday morning the previous week. He’s gone around to different places and gotten different opinions. It seems to be a problem in the wrist with a small bone. We’re trying to get it figured out.”

The injury turned out to be a broken wrist, and Justice missed the remainder of the season. Grand Blanc would finish 7-4, losing in the second round of the State Playoffs to Lake Orion.

FL RB Demetrius Hart

Last Week: Hart is a nominee for the US Army All-American Player of the Year. Dr. Phillips crushed Olympia 52-3 in Round 1 of the State Playoffs:

Running back Demetrius Hart rushed for 118 yards and accounted for three touchdowns — two rushing, one receiving — to lead the Panthers in a 52-3 rout.

This week: Dr. Phillips hosts Oak Ridge in Round 2 of the State Playoffs next Friday.

FL OL Tony Posada

Last week: Maxpreps picked this as an upset special. Eh, not so much, as Plant smashed Plant City 47-18 in Round 1 of the State Playoffs.

This week: Plant faces Newsome in Round 2 of the State Playoffs.

OH OL Jack Miller

Last Week: Pregame Fluff:

“Even though we're only 16, 17, 18-year-old kids,” Miller said, “we kind of know what this means in the big picture [of Toledo football history]. For us seniors, this is our last year and it's the last year of the City League [for St. John's, Whitmer and others]. On so many different levels, this game is very meaningful.”

Miller was also named 1st-Team All-District, and the District Lineman of the Year.

St. John's Jesuit fell to Whitmer 10-14 in Round 3 of the State Playoffs. Article 2.

This week: 11-2 St. John's has ended their season with both losses coming at the hands of Whitmer.

MI DE/LB Brennen Beyer

beyerrockford.jpg

Last week: Plymouth upset Rockford 20-17 in the State Semifinals. Beyer was the star of the show:

"Obviously, (Beyer) is an outstanding athlete," said Rockford coach Ralph Munger, whose team ended its season 11-2. "The quarterback made the throw and he made the catch with two guys in coverage. But you have to make plays and deny plays, and we didn't make enough big plays today." ...

"(Beyer) is a great kid, and he just keeps playing," Plymouth coach Mike Sawchuk said. "As a coach, obviously, you have doubt (when they score that touchdown with just over a minute to play), but these kids never quit.

Beyer made plays on both sides of the ball for Plymouth. He caught his team's first touchdown early in the first quarter and, on defense, he caused problems for the Rockford offense all game from the defensive end position... Beyer had five catches for 105 yards.

PlymouthCantonSports has much more:

"I ran a streak and our coach said to high-point the ball," said Beyer, describing his incredible reception. "That's what I did. It was surreal. I didn't even know what was happening. I was so dead tired, but it felt incredible. This feels so great. I just want to close my eyes and try to remember this moment for the rest of my life." ...

Plymouth's defense was outstanding the entire afternoon. Beyer led the way with seven tackles and three sacks.

Plymouth fluff. You can watch the whole game on MHSAA.tv.

This week: The 11-2 Wildcats will take on Lake Orion at Ford Field on Friday at 1PM. The game will be televised on FSN+ and MHSAA.tv.

TX LB Kellen Jones

Last week: Game Preview. St. Pius X fell to Bishop Lynch 21-22 on a last-second field goal. I'l update Kellen's stats when Tom hears from his coach. UPDATED:

 


Kellen Jones' team lost 22-21 on the last play of the game, a 38 yard field goal. Kellen left in the fourth quarter with a high ankle sprain, but he had 9 total tackles, 6 solo, 3 TFL, 1 sack, 1 FF.

So there's that. Final chart below:

FL CB Dallas Crawford

Last week: Game preview. South Fort Myers beat Barron Collier 33-2 in Round 1 of the State Playoffs (click through for quarter-by-quarter videos):

South had 161 rushing yards and Crawford completed 11 of 14 attempts for 163 yards and two TDs.

Sammy Watkins had... a 23-yard TD pass to Crawford.

Dallas dedicated his performance to his father, who passed away last Friday:

“He was my biggest fan... He taught me everything I know,” Crawford said. “He taught me how to throw a football.”

Article 2. Rest in Peace, Steven Crawford.

Lake Orion is good competition to see Beyer against.  They are well coached and won't make too many mental mistakes.  I'm actually surprised at how well the east has done this year in the state playoffs. Usually the west side of the state dominates Divisions I & II.

Great to see so many of our recruits learning how to win in their playoffs.  This is an underappreciated skill that will be needed for them to come up to the next level that cannot be taken for granted.
