Coming off of a double-overtime, one-point loss last week to West Ottawa, the varsity football team sits at 1-1 on the season and will take on OK Red powerhouse Grandville Friday night. FHC is ranked higher in the power rankings, but the Bulldogs pose quite a challenge. 

FHC and Grandville have not met since 2004, and the two schools have only played 11 times in history – the Rangers are 5-6 in these games. The Bulldogs come off of a 6-4 (4-2) season in a tough OK Red conference last season, and they currently sit at 0-2 after playing two defending State Champions in Clarkston (Division 1) and De La Salle Collegiate (Division 2). The Bulldogs were competitive in both games and are a strong team despite their current record.

The Ranger defense, after a poor first showing against Jenison, stepped up big time last week against a potent West Ottawa offense. Seniors Kyle Wojczynski and Jay Shields have been big contributors, as both of them have consistently come up with big stops. 

The defense will have to find a way to stop a totally different offense from last year: the Wing-T. The offense includes multiple fakes to running backs and usually results in a physical game at the line.

FHC’s offense, while still very productive, had three turnovers against West Ottawa. The Rangers will focus on being more consistent and protecting the football this week.

The big names on offense are seniors Luke Majick and Tate Hallock, as the two combined had a hand in all six Ranger touchdowns last game. If the offense can remain productive and the defense continues to play how it has, the Rangers should come out on top in another competitive game.
