Spartan Pups: Holmes has big game, but team falls in playoffs

Through much of the season, Flint Carman-Ainsworth running back Gerald Holmes has been splitting carries with other talented backs and not getting the workload one would expect of a Division 1 recruit.

Against Grand Blanc last week though, Holmes saw the majority of the carries and put up the numbers. He ran for 181 yards on 19 carries and had an 80-yard touchdown. The Bobcats fell, however, to Grand Blanc 30-26.

Holmes finished the season with 92 carries and 999 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Waukesha (Wisc.) West tight end Dylan Chmura also saw his season end last week, in a 54-49 playoff loss.

Chmura hauled in two touchdowns, one from 8 yards and one from 13. He had four catches for 68 yards in the game.

He finished the season with 20 catches for 382 yards and six touchdowns.

Drake Harris had another nice game in the opening round of the Michigan High School Football playoffs, catching five passes for 103 yards and a 45-yard touchdown. He upped his season totals to 64 catches for 1,261 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Cincinnati Moeller linebacker Shane Jones and the Crusaders are headed into the Ohio state playoffs starting this weekend. Jones had 93 tackles with 2 1/2 sacks and an interception in the regular season and earned all-Greater Catholic League south honors.

The pair of Erie Cathedral Prep commits have one more regular-season game to go. In last week's game, Damion Terry continued his outstanding senior season with five passing touchdowns and two rushing scores — all while being pulled midway through the second quarter.

He threw for 208 yards on 12-of-19 passing. He also had 72 yards rushing on four carries.

He now has thrown for 2,343 yards on 149-of-211 passing. He has passed for 36 touchdowns and ran for nine.

Delton Williams added a 22-yard interception return for a touchdown.

Cass Tech linebacker Deon Drake had an interception in Cass Tech's first-round playoff win, which he returned 40 yards.
