The Posen Vikings (3-1) and the Mio Thunderbolts (3-1), square off in the WBKB game of the week. The WBKB team visited both teams this week to see how preparations are going ahead of Friday’s showdown.
The Vikings come off of a 55-0 win against Heston. While Mio comes in off of a 60-10 victory over Hale.
Posen Coach Greg Pietsch is well aware of the challenges of facing the high powered Thunderbolts. “We’re 3-1 , there 3-1. We got to go down there and it is going to be a tough ball game.”
Mio is led by a high powered offense that is scoring over 50 points per game. “When you got guys like Gage Long and Nathan Hurst that always have two guys covering them. It makes it easy for the other guys to get open”, said senior Quarterback Austin Fox. The talented QB, who is only 16 as he plays his senior year commands the high powered Mio offense.
It is a full slate of football Friday Night. Rogers City takes on Hale. Atlanta hosts Whittemore-Prescott. Hillman travels to Au-Gres Sims. Alcona takes on Heston. In BNC play, Alpena hosts Petoskey.
