Mike Says: Milano quarterback Toby Sanders is their leading rusher and passer and starting DB. They have a tough defense that has held opponents to 16 points or less 8 times. That defense is led by LB Dominique Messer and DL John Jentsch. A Granger win in this game will match their win total over the last 3 years (9-22). The EAGLES win easily 35-10!!!

Chris Says:  With both teams already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs, you would think this could be a game where they decide to rest some people.  But, thanks to the system of rewarding district champ with a bye week in the playoffs, this one is the equivalent of getting a playoff win.  For that reason, expect both teams to play their best.  Granger will continue their turnaround and win the district and the bye.  LIONS win 27-20!!!
