Folsom Michigan Week 3 High School Football Standings

Sportswriter Brandon Folsom is back with his top 10 football rankings from Week 3:

Brother Rice's Cashton Papadelis runs during the Xenith Prep Kickoff Classic football game against Macomb Dakota on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2022, at Wayne State University.

10. Brother Rice (0-2; Last Week: No. 4)

The Warriors cruised to victory in Week 2 at East Kentwood. They were leading by one point, and all they needed was one final defensive stop.

Instead, the Falcons marched down the field 86 yards, lined up for a 26-yard field goal and scored it hard at the final whistle for the final victory, 19-17.

That’s a bummer for the Rice brother, who was still without three-star running back Nolan Ray, who suffered an injury during a preseason game. But he should get his first win in Week 3. Brownstown Woodhaven is coming off consecutive wins against bad teams.

Expect this game to be just the fit the Warriors need as they prepare for their three-game Catholic League-Central schedule beginning in Week 4.

Detroit Country Day's Gabe Winowich (right) takes on Chelsea's Trenton Hill during the Division 4 soccer regional final on Friday, November 12, 2021.

9. Detroit Country Day (2-0; Last Week: No. 9)

The Yellowjackets held off Parma Western by one score a week ago.

Week 3 should be a bit easier. They face Warren Michigan Collegiate, one of the best small schools in metro Detroit, but Country Day beat the Cougars by almost 30 points a year ago.

Expect the Yellowjackets to be 3-0 when they host South Lyon for their biggest test of the season in Week 4.

Novi's Boden Fernsler runs into the end zone with the game-winning 19-yard touchdown reception in a 13-10 victory over Hartland on Thursday, September 1, 2022.

8. Novi (1-1, 1-0 KLAA-West; Last Week. No. 8)

Outside of Westland John Glenn upsetting Livonia Churchill, the Wildcats had the most impressive win in Week 2.

After losing to state champion Belleville in the Xenith Prep Kickoff Classic, they bounced back by defeating Hartland, last year’s winners of the Kensington Lakes Activities Association-West, with theater at the end of the game. That included Boden Fernsler’s 19-yard touchdown catch on fourth-and-11 that became the game-winning play in a 13-10 win over the Eagles.
