Under the Radar: Week 2

Every week, there are great performances which go unnoticed in the state of Michigan. Here are a few players who are making some noise but still might not be heard from outside their schools.

Detroit Southeastern WR/DB Darryl Pitts
Pitts had 116 yards and three touchdowns receiving as well as an interception against Detroit Cooley. Michigan State coaches were in attendance and they are one of the schools, along with Toledo and Louisville who are continuing to monitor the 6'3, 185-lb Pitts.

Royal Oak Shrine RB Anthony Cade
Cade rushed for 151 yards and three scores as Shrine beat Dearborn Star. Cade has received interest from several MAC schools and if these performances keep up, I would expect an offer coming his way soon.

Detroit Cass Tech LB Thaddeus Burton
Burton was all over the place in Cass' win over Pershing. I had a front row seat and saw him make at least five or six outstanding tackles in space and pick up a sack of the Pershing quarterback. He is fast and always around the ball and will definitely be playing on Saturdays next year somewhere whether it be an FBS school or a local D2 school.

Lansing Everett QB Reggie Williams
Colleges, take note: Mr. Williams can play! He may not be the biggest guy, but he is simply a playmaker as he went 10 for 16, 252 yards and two touchdowns in a win over East Lansing. Williams projects to running back or wide receiver in college.

Muskegon QB Elan Banks
Folks around the state wondered if the Big Reds could replace Chris Crawford. Banks has stepped in and lead two victories over traditional powers in Detroit King and Birmingham Brother Rice. Against Rice this past week, Banks had 81 yards rushing, two touchdowns and more importantly, got the win.

Lowell QB Kyle Nichol and WR Torsten Boss
These two are as good a pass catch combo as you'll find in the state and they showed it this weekend as they hooked up three times for touchdowns.

Detroit Loyola RB Kevin Harris
The Oak Park transfer rushed for 233 yards and five touchdowns.
