*In the Trust Fund Bowl, Grand Rapids Christian topped East Grand Rapids 49-35. Eagles senior QB Alex VanDeVusse connected on 20-of-27 throws for 336 yards and six TDs. Drake Harris caught 10 of them for 211 yards and four TDs. EGR is known for its workhorse running backs (Kevin Grady Jr. has the state record for career attempts), but none of them had more carries in a game than senior Jahaan Brown‘s 40 on Friday. He gained 347 yards and scored two TDs.
*Mattawan senior Trevor Sweeney has had an incredible senior season, but topped even himself with one of the top 10 TD games in state history against St. Joseph. He ran for five and had two TD receptions.
*Grayling’s Jake Swander is the top passer in the Lake Michigan area. The junior QB was 30-of-51 for 477 yards and three TDs as the Vikings remained undefeated with a 41-22 win at Elk Rapids.
*Not only is Grand Haven junior Isaak Newhouse a receiving, defensive and special teams standout, apparently he can run the ball two. He had three rushing TDs in the Bucs’ 32-21 defeat of East Kentwood, and also returned a fumble for an 81-yard TD.
