Lake Area Defensive Player of the Week
Levi Six Sr LB Fruitport: He’s been causing havoc for years, and did it again against Spring Lake when Six blocked what would have been the game-tying extra point with 7 seconds left in the game. He also recovered a fumble and returned it for a TD in Fruitport’s first win of the season.
Lake Area Small School Player of the Week
Jacob Mauntler Sr RB Onekama: He was a thousand-yard rusher last year sharing carries with Jon Acton. Now Mauntler is the show and came up big in an win over Inland Lakes. He rushed 32 times for 252 yards and three TDS and caught two balls for 43 yards and a pair of TDs.

Lake Area Coach of the Week
Noel Dean, Lowell: It’s rarely been more apparent what kind of juggernaut program Dean has built than the start of this season. Despite returning just one starter from last year’s Divisoin 2 state runner-up team, the Red Arrows opened up with a win over Warren De La Salle, then defeated Rockford 21-10 in Week 2.
