Jack Dreyer (Freeland): The Falcons got their second victory in the final seconds/overtime this year when they faced Standish-Sterling. Dreyer’s clutch 35-yard field goal as time expired lifted them to a 17-14 win.
Jalen Broussard (East Grand Rapids): The Pioneers defeated Wayland to start 2-0 in league play. Broussard, the senior quarterback stepped up big time for East as he had 18 carries for 188 yards and two touchdowns to go along with an efficient 10/16 passing day that went for 98 yards and a score.
Kyle Nott (Jenison): The Wildcats knocked off previously undefeated Hudsonville thanks in large part to the mobility of their quarterback Kyle Nott. He used his legs to score a pair of touchdowns in the win.
