Five For Fighting — Catholic League Football Player Power Rankings

1 Jordan Cannon (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s 6-0, 210 Jr. LB) — Wrecking ball of a tackler, elite closing speed, carrying on the tradition of great Eaglets linebackers

2 Derrick Harmon (Detroit Loyola 6-5, 360 Sr. DL) — Committed to Michigan State, Harmon is a beast in the trenches, some of the best upside at the next level of anyone in this part of the country.

3 Elijah Rikard (U-D Jesuit 6-1, 180 Sr. S) — Committed to Central Michigan, Rickard is one of the most underrated secondary studs in the state, a genuine-article playmaker leading the back end of a defense.

4 Tommy Doman (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Sr. P/K) — Committed to Michigan, Doman is the No. 1 punter in America and snagged a rare special teams scholarship to the Big Ten. His foot is a thunderbolt.

5 Giovanni Mastromatteo (Clarkston Everest Collegiate Sr. QB) — The most exciting signal-caller in Metro Detroit that you don’t know about but need to immediately if not sooner. Best small-school player in the CHSL not named Derrick Harmon.

Underclassman to know:

Dylan Senda (Dearborn Divine Child Soph. OL) — True linchpin on the line, pancake power personified.
