Week 2: Thursday's Top Performers
Posted Aug 31, 2007
The holiday weekend meant lots of games on Thursday night this week. Some of the state's top ranked recruits were in action, and some of them definitely had big nights.
After being held to 80 yards in a 10-0 loss to Brother Rice last week, Denby's
rebounded with a 15 carry, 154 yard and 2 touchdown performance in the Tars' victory over Henry Ford.
Grosse Pointe South WR
has been putting up outstanding numbers over the past few seasons and last night, he continued his blistering start to this season. In a win over Port Huron Northern, Saros had 10 receptions for 171 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Zeeland West senior FB Andrew Plaska is not a player who gets a ton of recruiting hype, but that may change. Last night against Coopersville in a state title game rematch, Plaska ripped through the Bronco defense for 230 yards and 3 touchdowns on 18 carries.
After being one of the state leaders in rushing last season, DeAndre Johnson of Madison Heights Madison appears to be on pace to do it again. In their win over Lakeview last night, the speedy tailback rushed for 225 yards on 21 carries, 3 touchdowns and also had an 87-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
One sleeper in Detroit who doesn't always get enough pub is Detroit Central QB Kevin Smith. Smith showed why he is a Big Ten level recruit by going 8 for 10, 232 yards, 3 touchdowns and 108 yards rushing in a win over Chadsey.

had a 52 yard touchdown catch and a kickoff return for a score to power the Colts past Detroit Kettering.
One player we saw last week and were impressed with was Hudsonville RB Jordan Jonker. Last night, he had 161 yards and 3 touchdowns in a big win over Lowell.
Muskegon Heights DE
is one of our favorite players and he is again wreaking havoc on opposing offenses. So far this season, he has 21 tackles (10 last night) and a sack.
and Southeastern bounced back after last week's loss. Burrell was 11 for 21, 210 yards with one touchdown through the air and rushed for 2 as well as Southeastern beat Mumford 33-6.
