IMG_6089-L
On Sunday, December 7th, the 2014 Lake Michigan Football Report Senior Exposure Camp in Grand Rapids will provide an opportunity for football student-athletes to step closer to this dream. All seniors are invited to take the field one last time to showcase their football talent in front of college coaches from Division 2, Division 3, and NAIA schools. Last year’s Senior Exposure camp was a huge success many players who attended received college football scholarships.
Players will compete in the 40-yard dash, position group drills and one-on-one drills to catch the attention of college scouts prior to the National Football Signing Dayon February 4, 2015. The event will be covered by the Lake Michigan Football Report and other media outlets. Additionally, while NCAA rules prohibit Division I coaches from attending, all results & event write-ups will be sent to college coaches from ALL divisions — DI, DII, DIII& NAIA — from throughout the country.
After the on-field action concludes, players and college coaches will have an opportunity to meet face-to-face at a post-event meet and greet. This is an excellent opportunity for players to get to know the coaches and provide them with their highlight film. Space is limited so register online today!

The Lake Team

Oaks-Owens Earns O-K Black All Conference Honors

DeAndre Oaks-Owens earned his first O-K Black All-Conference nod this season as a junior. A two-year starter at his cornerback position, Deandre often took away one side of the field for opponent’s passing games. He finished with 6 interceptions on the year. Fortunately, the “No Fly Zone” returns next season in the Rockets’ quest to return to state prominence. Congratulations DeAndre!

Middle School Football Concludes Season with a Bang

2014-10-21_0935

In just the second year of having both a 7th and an 8th grade football team within the greater Reeths-Puffer Football Program, significant gains have been made in Rocket Football. From JV to 7th grade, numbers are up and continuity in instruction is leading to improvement in the win-loss column across the board.

While the 8th grade squad did not finish with the record they had hoped for, there is no shortage of talent or desire in this group of kids. Each and every game Coach Tescari, Coach Pallett, and Coach Barnes had their players battling until the end. Despite a few close losses, the coaches felt their kids got better and better as the season went on. There is no doubt that the lessons these kids learned this season will pay dividends for them in their high school years. A solid off-season of competing in other sports, competing in the classroom, and hitting the weights will make for a heck of a freshman squad next season.

The 7th grade squad turned more than a few heads this season with an undefeated, 6-0 record! The Rockets had no shortage of firepower behind a strong offensive line and powerful backs. Defensively, the Rockets were stingy, often preventing their opponents from scoring a single point! Increased numbers in the coming years should prove to make this an even more dominating class moving forward. Coach Shunta and Coach Webb credit their success to the passion these kids played with not only during games but also at practice. Congrats to Coach Shunta, Coach Webb, and the entire 7th grade squad for a wonderful season we are all very proud of!
