This week of the football season was full of phenomenal action, despite many games lasting two days as a result of the rain. The best performances that the MSR teams saw below:
Chase Bradman (South Christian): The Sailors shutout Greenville on Thursday night. Bradman spearheaded the offense with an impressive passing day. He was 15/19 for 244 yards and a touchdown, in addition to 36 yards rushing.
David Gonzalez (Newaygo): The Lions were defeated by Kent City, but Gonzalez’s play was phenomenal. He accounted for 175 rushing yards and two touchdowns, both of the scoring plays for Newaygo.
Gabe Seifert (New Berlin Eisenhower): In our Wisconsin Game of the Week, Seifert was the star of the show. He was 9/15 for 291 yards and 4 touchdowns, and he also added a fifth touchdown on the ground, where he had six carries for twenty yards.
Jaiden Friesen (Rockford): The Rams were big winners over GR Christian in Week 1, in large part to the strong play from Friesen in the backfield. He led the way with 25 carries for 149 yards and two touchdowns.
Logan Vanenkenvort (Holt): The Holt Rams defeated Caledonia on Friday, as a result of the offense getting a key restart. This was led by Vanenkenvort, who had a very efficient afternoon running the football. He used 18 carries to rack up 116 yards and three touchdowns.
Nick Braunschnieder (Tri-County): The Vikings started the season on the right foot with a shutout of Lakeview. On the offensive side, Braunschnieder was the catalyst under center. He was 8/11 passing for 134 yards and three touchdowns. He scored the other two touchdowns on the ground on 8 carries totaling 76 yards. On defense, he stepped up and made a huge interception.
Trey Morgan (Freeland): The Falcons won a wild double-overtime affair against Marshall. Morgan made dynamic plays on both sides of the ball in this contest. Early in the game, he ripped the ball away from the receiver and took it 43 yards to the end zone for a touchdown. Offensively, he scored what was the game-winning touchdown in double overtime.
