#6. Eisenhower 2018 QB Max Wittwer
-  Wittwer keyed Eisenhower past Chippewa Valley in the 2015 playoffs as a Sophomore.  As a Junior Wittwer played like a seasoned veteran who made great decisions and throws throughout the season as Eisenhower set the school record for points scored in a season with 12-1 record.

#7. Saint Mary's 2017 LB Josh Ross
-  Ross closed his magnificent career at St. Mary's Preparatory by tackling Muskegon's Kalil Pimpleton on the last play of the game to win the Division 3 state title, tacking on what has to be over 400 career tackles.  Ross followed his older brother, James, footsteps and is committed to the University of Michigan.

#8. Muskegon 2017 Slot "ATH" Kalil Pimpleton
-  Very players in the state of Michigan and in that case the midwest have the explosive playmaking ability that Pimpleton possesses.  Pimpleton has a rare ability to move around a Slot to QB in Muskegon's veer offense.  Pimpleton is committed to Virginia Tech.

#9. Cass Tech 2017 CB/RB Donovan Johnson
-  Cass Tech discovered in Johnson's junior year that he could be a big-play threat out of the backfield.  2 years later, very few RB's anywhere you look have had as productive seasons as Johnson.  Johnson ran wild vs. Saline in Regions and capped off his career with an impressive touchdown run in the finals.  Johnson is committed to Penn State University.

#10. Cass Tech 2017 OL/DL Jordan Reid
-  Behind Cass Tech's dominant offensive and defensive lines were Jordan Reid.  Reid was so quick on his stance that if opposing players weren't ready they were essentially already out of the play.  Reid and his teammates essentially shut down Catholic Central's running offense that ran through all 13 of their previous opponents with ease.  Reid is committed to Michigan State University.
