JERSEY MIKE's PLAYERS OF THE GAME ROUND 1 PLAYOFFS
James Robinson Rockford Lutheran Lutheran will have trouble moving up to 4A,some thought....People thought wrong. The Crusaders steamrolled Lawndale Prep out of the Chicago Public League on a muddy, rainy afternoon. James Robinson proved why he is not only an area elite talent, but possibly state. 327 all purpose yards and 7 TD's later.. the Crusaders had a 58-12 win and James hits 2,000 season yards and 4,000 career.
Demery Croft: Boylan. As a top seed, Boylan has high expectations. BUT...standing in the way in round 1 is a team that had them on the ropes just two weeks ago. The game was another instant classic, but in the second half Demery took over and threw 3 huge TD passes to give the Titans a pass to round 2 and a 35-17 win over North.
