I just attended the Inkster vs. East Kentwood game this evening. Devin Gardner put on quite a show. Unfortunately, the supporting cast was less impressive.
#15 (I believe his name was Deon Butler) was the only receiver who seemed to be able to catch the ball consistently. #3 (Tremonte?) was a very, very fast defender that was the only other player to make much of an impression.
The first play from scrimmage was a busted play that Gardner turned into a ~70 yard TD run. He appeared to be almost jogging as he outran the EK defenders.
Some early passes weren't so accurate, but after the first 10 minutes, I don't recall seeing a Gardner pass that wasn't very catchable. There were several potential TDs dropped in the second half, and lots of beautiful passes hitting the receivers in the numbers only to be dropped.
There was a Gardner fumble on the 1yd line that was a crushing play. Inkster was on the verge of pulling back into the game. He'll have to work on holding the ball a little better, but I would imagine that's pretty correctable with some good coaching.
I'm certainly not the most skilled judge of talent, but I was extremely impressed. He looked ready for the prime time already.
Anyhow, EK won the game -- I'm embarassed to say I've already forgotten the score. Their Wing-T offense seemed to be pretty confusing to Inkster's defense -- the tackling was atrocious.
