Mason was the most impressive team in the first week of the high school football season.  Their 56-30 win at and Okemos squad vaults them into the number 1 spot in this week's poll.

Lansing Catholic defeated Waverly 28-13, a closer game than many expected. They fall to number 3 this week.  I Look for them to improve throughout the season.

DeWitt got a nice road win at Linden, 38-14.  Rob Zimmerman keeps the machine rolling in Panther Country every year.  They move to number 2.

And finally, Portland's 29-7 victory over Ovid-Elsie got my attention.  I like the Red Raiders this season.  They have a shot in the stacked CAAC White.  I have them at number 5 this week.

Enjoy the games this week!!!!  Feel free to agree or disagree with this week's poll.
