Recap Sunday: Volume 1

September 5, 2010 - Dana Sulonen

As the blog is still getting its legs working, I've decided that Sunday should be called, "Recap Sunday." Basically, just a sum up, and a few interjections about what I think I think, regarding the weekend of high school and college football.

1. Howland and Harding is going to be much more of an interesting game than I originally thought.

Since the beginning of the summer, I've told myself and truly believed that I was going to pick Howland over Harding in this week's Fearless Football Forecast. With both teams at 2-0 and knowing a little bit more about how each team handles itself, it's going to be a very tight contest.

Can Harding stuff eight guys in the box and silence Deveon Smith? If so, can new Howland quarterback Tim Parana put the game on his back and carry the Tigers? Or will Mikhail Seawood or Demond Hymes become the player of the game and make us say, "Deveon who?" It's all questions that will be answered this Friday at Richard Lombardo Field.

2. Girard isn't the Girard of years past.

This isn't a knock on Struthers or not giving Manchester credit from Week 1, but Girard has always been an offensive powerhouse that never seems to go through a rebuilding process. Well, this year might be that for the Indians.

In the first two games, they have only totaled 30 points. I realize they are young and a lot of new guys are stepping in to some pretty big shoes from the 2009 team, but I think it's time we all realize that, yes Girard is still a quality team in the area, it's just not the scoring team it once was.

3. Surprise team of the first two weeks: LaBrae.

I didn't really know what to expect from the Vikings in 2010. They were switching to a new quarterback (Andrew Sekela to Carrington Herron), moving Sekela to running back with Matt Szorady, and returned a lot of guys from a 4-6 2009 team. But after giving Salem a huge scare in Week 1 and defeating Mineral Ridge in Week 2 at Ridge tells me that the Vikings are looking just fine, and are definitely going to be a team to watch in the next coming weeks. 

4. I also think that Terrelle Pryor actually looked like a quarterback on Thursday night, Champion needs to rebound quickly if they are going to try and contend in the AAC Blue and that Lakeview's Anthony Franco is going to have a darn good season.

Until next week, those are the things I think I think on Recap Sunday.
