1 Joe Silveri (Grand Rapids Catholic Central) — And the legend of “Joey Football” was born … enough said!!!

Stats: Throws for 236 yards and four TDs, runs for 145 yards and two TDs in a 44-0 stomping of Birmingham Detroit Country Day in D4.

Stats: Ran for 180 yards and three TDs and was LITTTTTTTTTTTT like a Panther-customized victory cigar in a monumental 30-7 upset of the Big Reds from Muskegon in D3.

4 Brady Rose (Muskegon Mona Shores) — One of the most beautiful and CASH MONEY back-up efforts in the history of the MHSAA final four, taking the reins in the first quarter of the semis and straight lapping the comp in his 7.5 quarters of action under center delivering the Sailors the program’s first state crown.

Stats: Throws for 122 yards and a TD and rushes for 90 yards and 3 TDs (he had 10 tackles in the secondary too for good measure!!) in a 35-26 downing of favored Detroit King in D2.
