1 Ian Stewart (Gibraltar Carslon Jr. WR/TE/LB/S) – Versatility personified, has college recruiters salivating.

2 Dorian Wesley (Woodhaven Sr. DL/OL) – A natural at the point of attack, quick on his feet for being the size of a small aircraft carrier (6-foot-6, 285 pounds), has just started to gain attention from the scouts because this is only his second year of playing organized football.  Tremendous value and upside in the trenches recruiting wise for the state’s Class of 2019.

3 Jay Solano (Trenton Sr. QB) – The definition of an unsung hero around Metro Detroit, this kid is a true gunslinger who drops dimes like a change machine.

5 Jalin Pitchford (Wyandotte Roosevelt Soph. QB) – Brimming with potential and sugary goodness from the pocket…aka…….the FUTURE…….and the FUTURE is now!!!!

6 Nick Arnoldy (Allen Park Sr. QB) – Blistering precision and efficiency chucking that leather!!

7 Devin Spears (Melvindale Sr. LB-RB) – Tough as nails…..’nuff said!!!

8 Christian Cooper (Wyandotte Roosevelt Jr. RB) – Can you say SHAKE & BAKE?

9 Jake Marese (Allen Park Sr. WR/DB) – Burning with BALLERDOM on both sides of the ball……check the tape!!

10 Max Marion (Dearborn Edsel Ford Sr. QB) – Mad Max is MAD NICE under center!!!

11 Zack Conti (Trenton Jr. OL) – Sir-Grind-A-Lot in the trenches.
