2018 MT High School Football - Week 7

Post by VimSince03 » Thu Oct 04, 2018 6:29 pm

Class AA

1.) Bozeman (6-0)
2.) Billings West (5-1)
3.) Helena High (5-1)
4.) Kalispell Flathead (4-2)
5.) Great Falls High (4-2)
6.) Billings Senior (4-2)
7.) Missoula Sentinel (3-3)
8.) Helena Capital (3-3)
9.) Butte (2-4)
10.) Missoula Big Sky (2-4)

Game(s) of the Week: Helena High @ Bozeman

Player(s) of the Week (#6): RB Grady Koenig (Helena High) - 274 rushing yards on 23 carries for 5 touchdowns (vs. Great Falls High)

Special Note: Grady has been a workhorse back for Helena High his senior season after waiting in the wings behind Ryan Arntson the past few years. His rushing total last Friday was the third most in Helena High single-game history behind two of the greatest backs in team history (Ryan Arntson and Delmar Jones).

Class A

1.) Hamilton (6-0)
2.) Billings Central (6-0)
3.) Columbia Falls (5-1)
4.) Frenchtown (6-0)
5.) Dillon (4-1)
6.) Laurel (5-1)
7.) Lewistown (5-1)
8.) Belgrade (4-2)
9.) Whitefish (4-2)
10.) Miles City (3-3)

Game(s) of the Week: Dillon @ Frenchtown; Lewistown @ Belgrade

Player(s) of the Week (#6): QB Joe Byorth (Billings Central) - 5/7 for 100 passing yards, 8 carries for 44 rushing yards, and 5 total touchdowns (3 passing/2 rushing) (vs. Belgrade)

Special Note: Joe is such a key part of what Billings Central does because teams still have to account for him throwing the ball even though the Rams are a monster running team. Last year, I basically said Joe was a QB who simply handed the ball off while providing little threat passing the ball. Then the playoffs happened and Joe shined as a QB who can lead his team when a shootout is necessary (see the Hamilton semifinal game in 2017). It also helps that he throws to Chrishon Dixon but he has become more efficient this year and has good size (6'3", 190 lbs.) for the position.

Class B

1.) Fairfield (5-0)
2.) Bigfork (5-0)
3.) Roundup (5-0)
4.) Big Timber (5-0)
5.) Colstrip (5-1)
6.) Missoula Loyola (5-1)
7.) Eureka (4-2)
8.) Florence (5-1)
9.) Townsend (4-2)
10.) Huntley Project (4-2)

Game(s) of the Week: Florence at Eureka; Bigfork at Townsend

Player(s) of the Week (#6): RB Asher Croy (Huntley Project) - 350 rushing yards on 39 carries for 5 touchdowns along with 5 catches for 43 yards (vs. Baker)

Special Note: The junior running back from Worden, MT has eclipsed the 350 single-game rushing yards mark twice this year and he has 1353 rushing yards on the season to go with 22 rushing touchdowns. He unofficially leads all running backs in all classes in rushing yards and touchdowns. He has good size at 6'0", 200 lbs. along with a good ability to produce in the passing game. Asher is moving himself up the 2020 Montana Recruit list quickly.

Class C (8-man)

1.) Drummond/Philipsburg (6-0)
2.) Fairview (6-0)
3.) Great Falls Central (6-0)
4.) Joliet (6-0)
5.) Shelby (5-0)
6.) Hobson/Moore/Judith Gap (5-1)
7.) Charlo (5-1)
8.) Circle (5-1)
9.) Centerville (5-1)
tie10.) Arlee (3-2)
tie10.) St. Ignatius (4-2)


Game(s) of the Week: Arlee @ St. Ignatius (not a lot of big games this week in Class C 8-Man...going to be a lot of blowouts)

Player(s) of the Week (#6): QB/RB Landers Smith (Charlo) - 380 rushing yards on 40 carries for 6 rushing touchdowns and 102 passing yards for two more touchdowns along with 17 tackles (vs. Alberton/Superior)

Special Note: If UM or MSU doesn't offer Landers a scholarship (or even anything), the myth that "Class C players aren't sure things because of the talent level they play against" lives on. If Smith doesn't go to one of the FCS in-state schools, every NAIA school will be getting a prize. He can play RB, LB, or S at the next level and he is an outstanding person as well.

Class C (6-man)

1.) Wibaux (5-0)
2.) Grass Range/Winnett (7-0)
3.) Geraldine/Highwood (5-1)
4.) Richey/Lambert (5-1)
5.) Westby/Grenora (5-1)
6.) Hot Springs (5-1)
7.) Bridger (5-1)
8.) West Yellowstone (5-1)
9.) Denton/Geyser/Stanford (5-1)
10.) Jordan (4-2)

Game(s) of the Week: Big Sandy @ Denton/Geyser Stanford; Westby/Grenora @ Jordan

Player(s) of the Week (#6): RB/LB Caleb Hess and RB/LB Zane Stahl (both of Grass Range/Winnett) - no stats available

Special Note: I just wanted to give them recognition as GR/W is undefeated and they are the stars. Both 4th year seniors and starters.
