Indianapolis, Ind. — Avon standout Brandon Peters entered his senior campaign as one of the most heralded signal callers in the country. The four-star Michigan commit lived up to his ranking Friday night versus Indianapolis (Ind.) Ben Davis, going 26/44 for 381 yards with four passing touchdowns, one rushing score, and two interceptions. Despite his impressive performance his team came out on the losing end of a 49-42 nailbiter.
“I think I did pretty good, but what I did wasn’t enough,” Peters told The Michigan Insider. “We should have won. If we see them in sectionals, then hopefully we can pull off the victory.”
Friend and fellow Michigan commit Chris Evans was on the winning team, but for most of the game he was bottled up. However when did come uncorked he made it count by rushing for two touchdowns.
“Chris is a beast,” said Peters. “I thought we held him up pretty good, but he made some big plays.”
With the loss, the Orioles now sit 1-1 on the season, but Peters knows in his squad's main goals are still on the table.
“It is a good feeling being out here, one last time with my brothers and make it one last ride,” said Peters. “I’m feeling pretty good about this season even though with this loss, we got to keep going. I want to keep going.”
Once his high school season is over Peters will play one last game before heading off to Ann Arbor. The 6-4, 210-pounder accepted an invite to play in the Army All-American Game, a contest he long dreamed of being in someday.
“It is just something I wanted to do forever,” said Peters. “I remember I was down there in seventh and eighth grade and I saw the game and fell in love with it. It is pretty awesome to play in that and an honor. I just can’t wait.”
Peters says contact has been daily with the Wolverine head coach Jim Harbaugh and passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach Jedd Fisch. He plans on graduating early and will look to further improve his game before stepping on campus in January.
“Moving forward, I always want to improve on my footwork,” said Peters. “Good footwork is going to lead to good accuracy and that is something I always try to focus on.”
