The fourth week of the MHSAA football season promises to be a good one with many highly competitive games with ranked teams vs. one another and other key rivalry games.

The D Zone staff on Saturday will be heading up north for: Central Lake vs. Baldwin and Traverse City Saint Francis vs. Kingsley.

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

Traverse City Saint Francis:

2019 DT/OG Spencer Hathaway is a 6' 270 lbs interior mauler with good fundamentals and base. Should draw a lot of interest from D2, NAIA, and D3 schools.

2019 OLB/TE Tom Hegewald is a 6'2 200 lbs prospect who we project around D1-FCS/D2 level. Hegewald is an OLB prospect with good instincts, read-reacts well, and on top of being physically constructed well, runs sideline-to-sideline well.

2019 DB/RB George Mackey holds 4 D3 roster opportunities entering the game. Mackey who is 5'11 180 lbs is one of the Gladiators main playmakers as he's solid cover corner with nice physical attributes as well.

2019 CB/RB Artie Dutmers is a 5'10 170 lbs strong cover corner as he has 2 interceptions already this year and has two opportunities for play Division III football as well.

2019 RB/S Evan McGee is a 5'11 180 lbs versatile playmaker for the Glads who plays both ways. McGee over the off-season dominated a combine The D Zone was at and his quickness really shows in game and film.

2019 OC/DT Tommy Gallagher is a 6'1 225 lbs center with good versatility who is quick off the snap and blocking effectively.

2019 DT Mitch Westman 6' 200 lbs interior NG prospect who gets off snap well and is a sure-tackler.


2019 DE Ian Sousa is a 6'4 235 lbs prospect and has very good pass rushing abilities. Sousa is certainly a player few know about now, but that could change with a great performance vs. TCSF.

2020 RB Ayden Mullin is a nice physical specimen at 5'11 170 lbs who has good speed, balance, and has shown how powerful of a runner he can be in Kingsley's wing-t offense.

2020 ATH Tyler Inthisone is the Stags top athlete at 6'1 160 lbs and runs the wing-t offense, Inthisone is a threat that must be accounted for.

2021 S Owen Graves is listed on the roster at 5'9 155 lbs but looks longer and lengthier on film than what's listed. Has ball-hawk type traits.

Central Lake:

2019 RB/LB Grant Papineau is one of the top returning players for Central Lake who was the 8-man state champions in 2017. Papineau is a hard-nosed and physical player who will have a major impact in this game who is getting D2 looks.

2019 ATH Skyler Spangler is one the most versatile skill players in 8-man football throughout Michigan. Spangler plays QB, RB, and DB for the Trojans. Spangler is a D3 recruit.
