After a record-setting first Game of the Week poll, we’re already gearing up for our Week 2 contest. And we need your help.
In a new twist this year, we’ll have two days of nominations before our new poll opens Friday. This is your chance to make your case in the comment section below as to why your team’s Week 2, game is the best candidate and should be included as one of the five choices in the poll.
Below is our Week 2 schedule of games. All games kick off at 7 p.m. Friday, with the exception of Whitmore Lake/Father Gabriel Richard, which will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday.
The week includes three matchups between SEC teams in different divisions: Huron at Lincoln, Skyline at Dexter and Ypsilanti at Saline.
The Gabriel Richard-Whitmore Lake game features a unique coaching connection: Gabriel Richard coach Brian Lemons is a teacher and baseball coach at Whitmore Lake, and spent seven seasons as the school’s defensive coordinator.
Pioneer will venture to Metro Detroit for the second straight week to visit Dearborn Edsel Ford, Chelsea will take on Belleville, while Manchester and Milan open their league seasons against Napoleon and Riverview, respectively.
Give us your pitch as to why your team’s game should be our Game of the Week. Then get your mouse ready to cast your vote starting Friday.
