Pioneer @ Detroit CC Coverage

Submitted by joeyb on November 12th, 2011 at 1:10 PM

I'm at the game with MGoGarbs, keeping track of the game for you. We'll be keeping track of stats for Wyatt Shallman, Matt Godin, and Drake Johnson. Most of those stats should come when Pioneer has the ball. Let me know if you have any questions or requests for information.

CC moves down the field, mostly pounding the ball. 7-0 4:46 left in the 1st. Godin has little form as OT and is still pushing people around. He had a nice seal on an end around that got blown up in the back field anyway.

Pioneer returns the ball to the 30. Drake Johnson carries the ball for 6 weaving through tackles. Next play goes to someone else and gets stuffed.

Cool.  Thanks for doing that.

Since you're taking requests, I'd love to know the positions from which those guys get snaps (other than their primary positions).  For example, is Johnson returning kicks or punts?  Does Godin slide around the D-line?  Shallman seems like he could play everything - does CC move him around a lot?

Johnson is the primary returner but they kicked to someone else. Johnson gets stuffed. Then a sack and forced fumble, but recovered by Pioneer. Toss to Johnson on 3rd and 17 for 2 yards.

Uh...Johnson is the punter. He got a good bounce for a 57 yard punt to put CC at their own 7 yard line. I guess we are recruiting him as a punter.


November 12th, 2011 at 1:24 PM ^

End of 1st. 7-0 CC. Johnson 5 carries for 13 yards, 57 yard punt. Godin 2 Tackles, one of the stuffs, and on the 2 yard pitch. No sign of Shallman. Does anyone know if he is injured or something?

MGoGarbs is doing a more detailed breakdown and will be posting it later. He already has like 4 paragraphs. He has been watching Godin, while I've been watching Drake because it's easier to get quicker messages out then. He says that Godin takes plays off. Basically, if the ball goes the other way, he jogs down the field. Pioneer stops them. CC punts down to the 6 yard line.

Zach Bock is a Sophomore for CC and he looks pretty good so far. All of CC's RBs look good, but he is being used in a bunch of ways. He's listed as a RB/QB/DB, I could see him being a RB at a D-I school. CC has been coming out in a 3-back formation, that I'm calling a T-bone. Basically, all 3 backs line up about 5 yards deep, one directly behind the QB, and the other two on either side of him.


November 12th, 2011 at 1:40 PM ^

3:06 left in the half and CC has done a good job keeping Pioneer of the field. off of a TO, CC goes for 4th and 2 out of the T-bone and gets about 4 yards. 12 yards to go.


November 12th, 2011 at 1:48 PM ^

Drake Johnson 39 yard return to the 41 yard line. "Damn, he's fast."

Johnson takes the snap and hands off for a 2 yard loss. Drake Johnson 4 yard run to end the half. Wait, no, TO with .8s left. Interception. Half.

Drake Johnson 8 carries for 16 yards, a punt, a 39 yard return.

Godin 2 Tackles. We did miss the tackler on the 2 yard TFL when  DJ handed off, so he might have a TFL as well.


November 12th, 2011 at 1:51 PM ^

Neither of us knew that Sam Webb had a son that played for Pioneer. I'm looking for his number right now so that I can watch for him in the second half. If I had heard Webb, I would have made the connection, so I don't know if he has accumulated any stats.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:13 PM ^

Same thing, except sweep to the otherside and Johnson pulls the ball, bombs it into double coverage, almost getting it picked.

3rd down, same thing, Johnson rolls out to pass and throws it away.

3 and out. Johnson to punt from the 18. Caught at the 46 by Bock, breaks a tackle, makes another miss, returns it down the sideline to the 30. The breeze is picking up.

Godin, obviously, isn't taking his OT duties as seriously. He'll push people around at the line, but if he goes into the second level, he's jogging and not picking up blocks that could spring the RB for a TD.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:19 PM ^

Darkangelo is the other RB that gets a lot of carries for CC. They like 2 RB, 1 FB formations.  He got most of the carries on that drive. He just had a stretch play out of Strong I for a TD. 21-0 CC 8:22 left in the 3rd.

Drake Johnson returns the KO from the goalline to the 24. He takes the snap and runs for 12 yards. Hands the ball off on the Jet Sweep for 2 yards. Godin is out this drive again. 2nd and 13 after a false start. He runs the ball, fumbles it, and recovers it for no gain.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:24 PM ^

CC now coming out in the flex bone. I love their offense, well in theory anyway. They aren't actually running an option, just using it to give new looks to the defense and power run game.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:29 PM ^

Now they come out in Wing T. Slow methodical drive down the field that is going to ensure that we get to watch the kickoff of the Michigan game. CC is now starting to pick up some steam. Their last 2 runs have gone for 8-12 yards. Of course, as I say that, Darkangelo gets tackled in the backfield.

End of 4th. 21-0 CC. CC has the ball at the 30 with 2nd and 10. MGoGarbs just told me that Godin had 4 plays in a row that he did well, that last play with the TFL is one that he took off. If he has a lineman or LB over him, he takes them out, but otherwise he jogs.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:37 PM ^

CC is going for it on 4th and 9 from the 23. Pioneer intercepts it off of a tipped pass at the chains. I don't know why he didn't drop it.

Pioneer gets it at the 14. Drake Johnson run for 6 yards. Godin stuffs Johnson at the line. Oh, the sound of pads smacking. :)

Drake Johnson stuffed again by someone else. 4th and 4 on their own 20. Johnson is back to punt. Johnson punts, caught at 48, returned down the sideline back to the 20. 7:55 left in the game.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:38 PM ^

By the way, every KO return, Drake Johnson catches the ball over his head like it's a jump ball. He might have a move to WR in his future.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:46 PM ^

There was an unsportsmanlike conduct for someone hitting a player in the head. It should have been an automatic first down, but they left it at 4th at 3. CC turned it over on downs on what should have been a first down.

Drake Johnson 9 yard carry. 2 yard carry. Godin stands up right away out of his stance. Drake Johnson direct snap, run for half a yard if that. Godin with half the tackle. Now, he's on the sideline. Drake Johnson pass to Tacopants. Rollout throw to Tacopants again. Pioneer punting on 4th and 10. Punt from the 26 to the 35.


November 12th, 2011 at 2:49 PM ^

3 minutes left. CC has the ball. We are leaving now to beat traffic because Godin is on the sideline. MGoGarbs will post his disertation when we get back.
