The inaugural State Champs! Michigan High School Football Anvil Award contest 2018 is now complete!

Congratulations to our Final Four below, and to Chippewa Valley LB Marcel Lewis – our 2018 Mr. Anvil Winner! 


Marcel Lewis - WINNER !

Chippewa Valley | LB - 6-1, 220 - Senior

A 6-foot-1, 220-pound outside linebacker committed to Michigan State. The best defensive player on the field, providing constant pressure in a 31-26 road win over Saline in Week 1, Lewis — who also plays tight end — had a 35-yard touchdown catch that provided the go-ahead score for Chippewa Valley. As a tight end on offense, Lewis has also been an outlet receiver for QB Tommy Schuster on an offense that has a ton of weapons, and he caught the go-ahead score in a 31-16 road win over No. 17 Saline. Lewis has 19 tackles in four games, despite only playing the first half in two of them, as the Big Reds have stayed unbeaten by downing Roseville (42-0), Utica Eisenhower (45-24) and Anchor Bay (42-6) in the last three weeks.

Ruke Orhorhoro

River Rouge | DE - 6-6, 271 - Senior

A 6-foot-6, 271-pound strong-side end who hadn’t ever played football before transferring to River Rouge, then breaking out with 20 sacks and 28 tackles for loss, Orhorhoro is committed to Clemson. Combined with opposite end Jaylen Henderson for 20 tackles, 10 for loss and three sacks in a 40-7 loss to No. 1-ranked Cass Tech, where the Technicians’ D-I RBs combined for 190 yards and four TDs. River Rouge has only allowed 10 points in three games since then, beating East English Village (60-0), Southfield Bradford (48-10) and Hamtramck (73-0).

Lance Dixon

West Bloomfield | OLB - 6-2, 200 - Senior

At 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, Dixon is not only ranked highly in Michigan, but one of the highest ranked Class of 2019 players in the Nation. Dixon is committed to Penn State for 2019. Had an offensive touchdown on the ground in West Bloomfield’s back-and-forth, 39-28 win over Birmingham Groves. Has been a sideline-to-sideline presence for a one-loss West Bloomfield team that’s only been beaten by defending D1 champion Clarkston (28-25) in a rematch of last year’s title game. The Lakers have beaten Birmingham Groves (39-28), Oxford (31-24) and Bloomfield Hills (50-7).

Anthony Bradford

Muskegon | OT - 6-5, 320 - Senior

A 6-foot-5, 320-pound offensive tackle for the defending D3 champions, Bradford is bound for LSU in 2019. Bradford and the Big Reds line have been dominant all season long, as evidenced by the big runs ripped off by new starting QB Cameron Martinez and the Muskegon stable of running backs. Muskegon beat defending D2 champion Warren DeLaSalle (36-21), Detroit King (24-21), East Grand Rapids (49-21) and Grand Rapids Kenowa Hills (72-14), finally unveiling the passing game in Week 4.
