Player of the week prediction for Week 3

September 7, 2010 - Dana Sulonen

Was I wrong on my Mikhail Seawood prediction last week? Technically, yes.

The senior quarterback was 7-of-9 for 157 yards passing, but Harding rarely faced a field position starting on their side of the field, so the stats that could have been accumulated were cut down. Seawood had a heck of a week, and has had a great season so far, but we felt that Hubbard's Mike Lopuchovsky being a part of 20 Hubbard points in their 41 total was a very impressive effort.

In all reality, the next Tribune Player of the Week will probably be the biggest star from the most anticipated game of the year: Harding against Howland. But who that player will be and from what team, is yet to be determined.

However, to name a player that I think will have a breakout week, I'm going to go with All-Ohio wide receiver, Girard's Landon Smith, against John F. Kennedy.

The Girard offense has struggled this season, or at least by Girard standards. The normally-high scoring machine has only put up a combined 30 points in the first two games. But I see this week the Girard offense having a breakout performance.

The Kennedy defense has struggled even more than the Girard offense. The Eagles have allowed 67 points so far this season. Girard, and quarterback Dan Graziano, need a breakout game, which always means using its favorite target in Smith.

Smith was on the receiving end of both touchdowns for Girard this past week against Struthers and caught for more thhan 100 yards, and I foresee many catches and numerous yards against the Eagles.

That's my prediction, and I'm sticking to it.
