Week 5 is pound for pound the best week of the season since week 1 as there are a lot of incredible games across all levels of enrollment in the state. We have identified the two biggest ones on Friday which is where we'll be at.

The D Zone staff on Friday will be at: Chippewa Valley at Dakota and Davison at Grand Blanc.

Below are the prospects we're aware of entering the game. We look forward to discovering more talent.

Grand Blanc :

2019 CB Kortez Toles will be the biggest x-factor in this game as the 6'3 185 lbs prospect is the #57 ranked prospect in the Class of 2019. Toles is a long, rangy, and physical CB prospect who will need to defend some passes tonight but with Davison's rushing attack, he'll need to tackle too.

2019 DE/LB Leonard Henry is a versatile 6'4 215 lbs prospect who flies to the ball. He is ranked as the #86 prospect in the class of 2019. Henry will have an active game vs. a Davison offense that can be downhill and stretch outside the Tackles.

2019 OT/DE Jarrett Short starting RT but will be a defensive player in college, 6'4 250 lbs. He is long, athletic and wants it. He was selected by teammates to be part of GB's leadership committee for varsity football. Jarrett is very dedicated, always working to improve.
