Lake Area Honors: Week 3

Lake Area Offensive Player of the Week:

Jake Bouma  Sr  QB  Grandville Calvin Christian: Bouma led the Squires to their first win of the year, throwing for 294 yards on 21-of-31 while rushing for 125 yards and three TDs against Godwin Heights.

Lake Area Defensive Player of the Week:

Khale Showers  Jr  LB  Rockford: He led a Rams defense that held one of the Lake Area’s top backs, Mona Shores’ Marcus Collins, to 41 yards on 14 carries. Showers had a team-high 11 tackles, including 1 1/2 behind the line, and recovered a fumble in Rockford’s first win of 2016.

Lake Area Small School Player of the Week:

Michael Myers  Sr  RB/DL  Gobles: He excelled both ways as Gobles improved to 3-0 against Galesburg-Augusta. Myers ran 11 times for 248 yards and three TDs while pacing the defense with 10 tackles

Lake Area Northern Michigan Player of the Week:

Nick Vandenboss  Jr  LB  McBain: He had three sacks among his dozen tackles as McBain improved to 3-0 handing Evart its first loss of the season. Vandenboss also caught a 68-yard TD pass.

Lake Area Coach of the Week: 

Chris Myers, Hamilton: After defeating previously unbeaten Zeeland East 34-21, Hamilton has already won more games than it has in a season since 2012 (a campaign that included a W over Zeeland West). Perhaps not coincidentally, 2012 was the last season Myers coached until returning in 2016. Hamilton was 79-44 in Myers’ first tenure, then 4-23 without him. The Hawkeyes twice converted fourth downs against East, including a TD.
