Lansing-Area High School Football Power Rankings After Week 3
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:
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.
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)
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.
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 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.

GL heads to Sexton this week, and then hosts Okemos in Week 5.
The Vikings thumped Perry 48-7 to get off to a 1-0 star in GLAC play.

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