MI SPORTS PAGE Top 10 High School Football Poll

I skipped on the opportunity to put before the readers of this blog a football preseason  Top 10.

The reason being, pre season high school polls are based solely on how a team performed the year before,  and does it have a winning tradition.

Based on that criteria, the Top 5 does not change much from year to year.

Now that teams have played a game here’s what we know:

West Michigan can’t wait for the Sept. 30 match-up between Lowell and East Grand Rapids.

Rockford was controlled from start to finish by Lowell. By week nine the Rams will be a much improved football team.

The Zeeland Schools (East and West) appear to be among the lakeshore’ s finest.

Coopersville got a good win against what is considered a tough football program in Hamilton.

Hudsonville, after a couple of lean years, opened the season at Holt with a good win.

With that said I unveil my first weekly go around at a Top 10:

1/tie. EGR/Lowell – Based on the Pioneers win  against Catholic Central, their 35 game winning streak; and Lowell’s stellar performance against Rockford.

3. Grand Rapids Christian

4. Muskegon

5. Zeeland East

6. Hudsonville

7.Zeeland West

8. Grand Haven

9. Coopersville

10. West Ottawa

I know what you’re thinking, Rockford and Catholic Central are Top 10 teams. I agree, just not after their week one performances
