Lansing-Area High School Football Power Rankings After Week 3

Pewamo-Westphalia is back in our rankings after a dominant win over Saranac.
Pewamo-Westphalia is back in our rankings after a dominant win over Saranac.

There’s only a slight change in this week’s poll with Perry and Williamston falling in Week 2.  The Top 8 in last week’s poll were victorious last Friday night.

There are only nine unbeaten teams in high school football after two weeks of play.  There seems to be a lot of parity around the area in 2017.

OK, on with this week’s rankings:



Okemos (3-0)

Last Week: 1



The Chiefs throttled Eastern 49-0 to remain unbeaten.  Drew McGaughey rushed for two touchdowns.  He’s having a terrific year in the shadows of star Dominique Clerkley.

They’ll be favored to go to 4-0 when they play Everett on Friday night.




Sexton (3-0)

Last Week: 2



The Big Reds welcomed back star running back Cody Blankenburg from a knee injury with open arms.  And he responded with 4 touchdowns against Everett.

The schedule gets tougher this week when they host Grand Ledge.




Lansing Catholic (3-0)

Last Week: 3



Josh Kramer had three interceptions in the CAAC White opener against Eaton Rapids, leading them to a 34-0 victory.

The schedule gets tougher with Williamston and Portland in the next two weeks.




Ithaca (3-0)

Last Week: 4



The machine rolls on at Ithaca.  108-4 in their last 112 games after another pasting of St. Louis.

They’ll have a tougher time with Saginaw Mich. Luth. Seminary this Friday.




DeWitt (2-1)

Last Week: 5



DeWitt has never lost in CAAC Red play, and that didn’t change after they shut out Mason 49-0.

QB Blake Gatfield threw four TD passes for the Panthers.  He’s played well in relief of the injured Anthony Joseph.

Charlotte should provide a tough fight this Friday night.

Grand Ledge (2-1)

Last Week: 6



The Comets rode Jacob Umholtz to a surprisingly easy 48-13 victory over East Lansing.  Umholtz rushed for nearly 200 yards and 4 TD’s on the night.

GL heads to Sexton this week, and then hosts Okemos in Week 5.




Lakewood (3-0)

Last Week: 7



The Vikings thumped Perry 48-7 to get off to a 1-0 star in GLAC play.

Parker Smith is leading Lakewood to another excellent season.  They get an improved Maple Valley squad at Alumni Stadium this Friday night.




Olivet (3-0)

Last Week: 8



Another nice win for the Eagles.  They knocked off a much-improved Leslie team 28-6.  Heath Flowers rushed for two TD’s.

Olivet gets another improved team, Perry in Week 4.




Portland (2-1)

Last Week: Unranked



Austin Allison’s long bomb was caught with four seconds left to give the Red Raiders a thrilling 21-14 win over Williamston.

John Novara’s crew is formidable again, only a late TD from Sexton is keeping them from being 3-0.  They are at Fowlerville this week.




Pewamo-Westphalia (2-1)

Last Week: Unranked



The Pirates are back at the top of the CMAC standings after a 47-0 drubbing of Saranac in Week 3.

Jimmy Lehman threw three TD passes and over 200 yards against the Redskins.

P-W goes to Bath this week.
