By: , October 8, 2019, 4:35 pm

1 Donovan Edwards (West Bloomfield Jr. RB) — Pure electricity nearly every touch.

2 Kobe Manzo (Lake Orion Sr. RB) — Perfect combination of power, speed and instinct.

3 DeVonta Twymon (Oak Park Sr. RB) — The breakout star of the league this fall, running with a ton of tenacity.

4 Justin Rogers (Oak Park Sr. OL/DL/LB) — Maybe the most versatile lineman Metro Detroit has seen this decade.

5 Cornell Wheeler (West Bloomfield Sr. LB) — Beast Mode 24/7.

6 Maliq Carr (Oak Park Sr. WR) — This kid has NFL written all over him.

7 Makari Paige (West Bloomfield Sr. S) — Battle-tested, thrives under pressure.

8 Blaze Lauer (Lake Orion Sr. QB) — All spunk and swagger under center, a dangerous combo.

9 Markis Alexander (Birmingham Groves Sr. QB) — So much command in the huddle and in the pocket its sick.

10 C.J. Harris (West Bloomfield Sr. QB) — Finally turned the corner after a slow start, is looking surgical and primed for a ginormous finish to 2019.

11 Jacob Bousamra (North Farmington Jr. QB) — Just a gunslinger in every way.

12 Rocco Spindler (Clarkston Jr. DL/OL) — Fierce as the come at the point of attack, motor, intelligence, technique.

13 Garrett Dellinger (Clarkston Jr. OL/DL) — Back at full health and extra hungry to devour the comp in the trenches.

14 Ralph Donaldson (Birmingham Groves Sr. S/RB) — The heart and soul of the Groves Falcons.

15 Anthony Romphf (Southfield A&T Sr. QB) — Bazooka of an arm, nifty with his feet, needs a mega late-season run to keep the program intact.
