Going Into The City – Popping Collars With The PSL

By: Scott Burnstein, September 18, 2016, 10:24 pm
Burney dips into the PSL pigskin scene with a few comments and observations from the first four weeks of the 2016 campaign.
Here goes:
Detroit Cody senior tailback Zyaire Gardner is a complete BOSS & HOSS toting the rock. Plain and simple, ‘NUFF SAID!!…..ok, but I want to say a little more; like fleet-footed, elusive and hungry for extra yardage on every carry……..workhorse back with wheels. He had 125 yards and 2 touchdowns in a win in Week 4
Detroit East English Village senior quarterback Delvin Washington is a TRIPLE D DELIGHT (aka Dazzling, Dynamic and Downright NASTY) in the pocket, giving Northern Illinois-bound Cass Tech senior signal caller Rodney Hall a real run for his money in the best field general in the league department right now. He threw 5 touchdowns in a Week 4 DUB vs. Denby, 4 of them going to junior flanker “Slamming Sammy” Womack, who’s been his favorite target this fall. Womack is an underrated home run threat, quietly plying his trade in the shadows, making a name for himself at the position in a league known for producing top flight pass catchers dating back decades.
Detroit Mumford junior wide receiver Brandon Green is crushing the comp this season. He’s stretching the field, running superior routes and displaying butter-soft hands. Green piled up more than 300 combined yards in Week 4, scoring twice on touchdown grabs and once on an 80-yard kickoff return.
Detroit King sophomore quarterback Dequan Finn has his boy Burney intrigued…..he’s been a shark under center for the Crusaders since Week 1
Detroit Cass Tech transfer senior linebacker Jordan (J.D.) Lewis came from the MAC Red where he was a first-team all-league pick last year with 12 sacks for Sterling Heights Stevenson and has seamlessly adapted to his new surroundings. Lewis is the ultimate ‘glue guy’ with an edge and MAD SMARTS on the gridiron. If you didn’t know better, you might think you were watching future Hall-of-Famer RAY LEWIS not high schooler J.D. Lewis (Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about here, that kind of SWAGGER sideline-to-sideline!!)
