OT: MHSAA Playoffs Preview (Good Luck Thread)

Submitted by Fhshockey112002 on October 25th, 2012 at 5:03 PM

Well it's that time of year again.  MHSAA playoffs start this weekend, by no means will I be able to give a complete run down but here is my attempt at key games this weekend.  Some games are good matchups, others simply involve Michigan recruits/targets.   If I blatently miss one please let me know.

Division 1

Traverse City West (6-3) at Rockford (7-2) 

Perennial state championship contenders both very solid programs historically. Should be a very sound football game.

Catholic Central (5-4) at Hartland (8-1) 

Tough season for CC, but their record could be misleading due to a very tough regular season schedule. *key player* Wyatt Shallman Catholic Central RB/DE

Cass Tech (7-2) at Grosse Pointe South (8-1) 

Cass Tech has so much talent it is hard to believe they finished 7-4. *Key players* Jourdan Lewis Cass Tech CB, Jayru Campbell Cass Tech QB, David Dawson Cass Tech OG.

Division 2

Farmington Hills Harrison (6-3) at Fenton (8-1)

Fenton enters the game ranked #10 in the state (current Michigan Punter Kenny Allen's alma mater) Harrison is always loaded with talent, and should be the favorite even on the road.  *Key player* Lorenzo Collins Harrison RB (Class 2014) 

Brother Rice (7-2) at Port Huron (7-2) 

Once again Brother Rice should factor into the State Championship.  Although I think Midland and Muskegon are the top teams in the division.

Division 3

Marysville (6-3) at Detroit East English Acadamy (7-2) 

Michigan recruit Khalid Hill (TE) leads the PSL runner-ups into the playoffs.

Division 4

Chandler Park (6-2) at Gross Ill (8-1) 

Michigan recruit Csont'e York plays for Chandler Park... Sorry I don't have more info.


Also, for a found this website that has complete brackets for all 8 Divisions.

I graduated last year and still have a bunch of buddies on the team.

They're not going to roll over for Harrison, they have the talent to hang with them. And Harrison players and fans have went out of their way to talk trash on social media and tell them how much they suck, they aren't taking Fenton seriously at all.  Perfect recipe for an upset!

As a current Grosse Pointe South student, I am too excited for the game.  However, I can tell you my friends on the football team realize their fate when I joke about a 70-0 loss.  They all remember playing King last year.  And Dennis Norfleet.  Honestly, if you watch his highlight tape, about three or four plays are against South.  They're 8-1...in the MAC Blue.

The Port Huron game will be a good one.  Brother Rice is favored but the fact that they are traveling and it will be a bad weather game (Port Huron runs nearly all the time and less likely to be bothered by rain and cold) makes it a nice set up for an upset.  Oh, plus I have connections to PH :)

It was a track meet.  Rice pulled it out 47-27.  Neither team had a defense. That includes the LB heading to moo u.  He was non effective.  PH Chapman ran wild but we could not stop Rice.

Overall, a fun game to watch.  Rice will not go far either.

It's been a while since I followed extensively my high school, but the 8-1 Saline Hornets will be taking on Bedford, and this should be a pretty good one - we only beat them by three back in September in a conference game. Go Hornets! Kick The Mules!

Best of luck to the Harper Creek Beavers. They host Charlotte in the opener. The Beavers have a very favorable district pairing, possibly setting up a Regional test with Milan.

How can you say that when you see Zeeland East knock off the #1 ranked team in MI last Friday with one of their starting running backs. Who by the way came into the game with over 1100 yards rushing. GO CHIX!!!
I do hope they meet up next Friday. It will be an awesome game!!
