Five new games to choose from in Week 3 Game of the Week poll

By Kyle Austin


Chelsea and Saline will rekindle their rivalry in Week 3.

Ann Arbor News file

Between your nominations and my two cents, we’ve got our third Game of the Week poll.

Five games appear in our weekly poll, which opens today and stays open through 6 p.m. Tuesday. All of them have the chance to be the focus of our Week 3 high school coverage.

We got nominations for three games for our Week 3 poll: Monroe Jefferson at Milan, Tawas Area at Father Gabriel Richard and Temperance Bedford at Lincoln.

To fill the remaining poll slots, I’m adding two other noteworthy games on the schedule: the relaunch of the Saline-Chelsea rivalry, pitting last season’s SEC Red and White champs against each other, and Pioneer’s matchup against Tecumseh, the home opener for the Pioneers and new coach Jari Brown’s first game at Hollway Field.

In the meantime, stop by at 7 p.m. tonight as we kick off Week 2 with our Game of the Week chat from Ypsilanti at Saline. We’ll be providing updates on area scores and chatting with high school football fans. Hope to see you there.

With Lincoln's second impressive win it shows just how far they have come. The big test will be this week against Bedford. This IS THE GAME OF THE WEEK! It will show who is the best. GO LINCOLN>>>

You're right it should be a good test, Bedford had its second impressive win Friday too -- 56-25 over Toledo St. Francis

Dear Lincoln many of you are clicking on this every hour?

Lincoln has a great sense of school spirit and pride! They also have a strong community that backs them 100% the last game of the week poll Lincoln won by over 2,000 votes! There's nothing wrong with having a strong sense of pride in our kids out there!

While there may be a few people that vote many times I think the reason for Lincoln's success in these votes has more to do with community and school pride. When the vote opens the Lincoln folks do a great job of getting the word out.
