6. Nate Emery/Spencer McCourt – Bloomfield Hills Lahser RB/QB

5. Sean Scullen/Justin Allor – Stoney Creek RB/QB

3. Bloomfield Hills Lahser Defense
The Lahser defense was unleashed on Friday night as the Knights held rival Bloomfield Hills Andover below zero total yards from scrimmage in the final rivalry game between the two squads en route to a 70-7 shellacking.

2. Anthony Waite – Lakeland RB
Waite rushed for 227 yards and three touchdowns on just 17 carries on Friday night as Lakeland literally ran past Northville in the first game of the season, 39-14.
