2018 MT High School Football - Week 9

Post by VimSince03 » Wed Oct 17, 2018 3:44 pm

Class AA

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

Game(s) of the Week: https://montanasports.com/high-school/f ... etermined/

Player(s) of the Week (#8): WR Jesse Owens (Billings West) - 10 catches for 248 yards and 3 touchdowns (vs. Missoula Sentinel); RB Blake Counts (Kalispell Flathead) - 24 rushes for 217 yards and touchdown along with 2 catches for 67 yards with a touchdown (vs. CMR)

Special Note: Jesse is one of the true game changers in the state who can go the distance when he gets the ball or, at least, get chuck yards after the catch. He leads AA in receiving and is a major part of why Billings West is 7-1 heading into Week 9. Meanwhile, Blake Counts took down Lex Hilliard's single season Flathead rushing record with 217 rushing yards to put him 1555 rushing yards on the season. Counts has been one, if not the best, running back in the state all year (I've ranked Joe Olsen ahead of him at the position...like that matters). He can also change games and put his team on his back in crunch-time. He has a real shot of going over 2,000 rushing yards on the season, breaking Andrew Grinde's AA rushing record (2180 yards), and possibly breaking Cut Bank native Jarett Laden's all-class record of 2387 yards set back in 2000.

Class A

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

Game(s) of the Week: https://montanasports.com/high-school/f ... etermined/

Player(s) of the Week (#8): QB Carson Rostad (Hamilton) - 447 total yards (237 passing/210 rushing) for 6 total touchdowns (4 passing/2 rushing) and led the team in tackles on defense (vs. Frenchtown); RB/LB Colten McPhee (Columbia Falls) - 340 rushing yards on 38 carries for 5 rushing touchdowns and 17 tackles on defense (vs. Whitefish); OL/DL Marcus Wehr (Billings Central) - 7 solo tackles (4 TFLs), 3 sacks, and his OL plowed the way for 330 rushing yards at a 7.7 per rush clip (vs. Lewistown)

Special Note: Junior QB Carson Rostad is arguably the top overall player in the state of Montana with maybe of the exception of Bozeman sophomore Kenneth Eiden IV (he currently has 31 TFLs/16 sacks on the season as a DE). As a dual-threat QB prospect, he has perfect size, arm strength, running ability, and smarts to be considered a top prospect at the position. He is also one hell of a safety. RB/LB Colten McPhee is a 5'10", 205 lb. kid who can dominate a football game on both sides of the ball. Columbia Falls also has one of the best OL's in the state but Colten is a freight train with the ball in his hands. He's also an excellent MLB and possibly the best one in the state. He currently has 29 total touchdowns on the season. Finally, I needed to at least mention Marcus Wehr from Billings Central. The 6'3", 220 lb. defensive lineman balled out against Lewistown in a huge Eastern A conference game. He is great against the run, flashes pass rush ability, and has the perfect body structure to make a productive strong-side DE in college. Marcus could also become an offensive lineman if he adds weight on to his frame at the next level.

Class B

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

Game(s) of the Week: https://montanasports.com/high-school/f ... etermined/

Player(s) of the Week (#8): QB/LB Brody Grebe (Roundup) - 5 total touchdowns (3 rushing/2 passing) (vs. Shepherd)

Special Note: Brody has had a Garrett-Graves-2017 type season for the Roundup Panthers in terms of his willingness to put his team on his back every Friday night. He plays with max effort (because he doesn't know any other way) on offense as the Panthers call his number a ton on QB draws. On defense, he may have the best instincts of any linebacker in the state (Ryan Tirrell and Colten McPhee are up there as well). Brody also has an interesting recruiting choice ahead of him as he wants to be an engineer and he holds FCS football offers from the Griz and Cats (Griz have offered more) along with NAIA offers from nearly every in-state program. He is also drawing football interest from out-of-state programs like NDSU. As a basketball player, he has NAIA offers from nearly every in-state program. Brody also holds a full-ride rodeo offer to MSU. He also has track and field interest for his triple jumping ability. If you can, go watch the kid participate in any of these sports. It is a treat.

Class C (8-man)

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


Game(s) of the Week: https://montanasports.com/high-school/f ... etermined/

Player(s) of the Week (#8): RB Trey Green (Alberton/Superior) - 32 carries for 274 yards and 6 rushing touchdowns along with 31 receiving yards and 13 tackles on defense (vs. Plains); QB Alex Schriver (Fairview) - 5 total touchdowns (4 passing/1 rushing) (vs. Forsyth)

Special Note: Trey Green has Alberton/Superior (or the Clark Fork Co-Op) back in the playoffs with one week left in the regular season for 8-man. The 5'9", 200 lb. back has 1745 total offensive yards and 26 total touchdowns for a team that only lost twice (a 16-50 decision to #1 Drummond/Philipsburg and a 58-66 shootout to Charlo). Meanwhile, QB Alex Schriver has the perennial football power Fairview Warriors squarely in the conversation as one of maybe three teams that can contend with Drummond/Philipsburg in the 8-Man playoffs. The sophomore lefty has excellent throwing mechanics and a knack for escaping the pocket to run or pass for the Warriors. On offense, he forms a formidable trio of playmakers along with RB Cody Askbeck and ATH Carson Cayko. On defense, Schriver is a ballhawk who has almost 10 interceptions on the season (possibly has more...not sure on the stats). Fairview and Drummond/Philipsburg will be on opposite sides of the playoff bracket so something to watch out for come title game time.

Class C (6-man)

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

Game(s) of the Week: https://montanasports.com/high-school/f ... etermined/

Player(s) of the Week (#8): QB Mac Hauck (West Yellowstone) - 6 passing touchdowns (vs. Noxon)

Special Note: West Yellowstone finished its conference schedule with a 82-72 win over Noxon. The junior signal-caller was a major part of that with his six touchdowns. Overall, his QB play has set up West Yellowstone with a Top 2 seed out of the 6-Man West conference heading into the playoffs.
