3 stars for Week 8

My, time flies when you're having fun. It seems like just yesterday teams from around the state began practicing for the high school football season, and now, after this week, the season will be over for all but the fortunate 256 that qualify for the state playoffs.
It's already Week 9, so hopefully teams will have fun with spirit weeks around school since this is usually rivalry week. Before looking ahead to Week 9, here are Koz's 3 stars of Week 8.

Third star
Shane Frakes, Pontiac Notre Dame Prep
In helping the Fighting Irish improve to 8-0 on the season, Frakes ran for 157 yards on 14 carries in a win over Pinconning. The amazing story of the Fighting Irish got even more amazing.

Second star
Kirk Thomas, Walled Lake Northern
Even though Kosmo thought Milford would beat Northern, this wasn't a result totally unexpected, mainly because of the abilities of Thomas. He was at it again in a 35-28 win over the Mavericks, throwing for 261 yards and three touchdowns and running for 50 yards and a touchdown.

First star
Lorenzo Collins, Farmington Hills Harrison
Since Prescott Line of Oxford is ineligible for being the first star again this week due to being the first star so many times this year (296 more yards against Clarkston. Wow), Kosmo will give the nod this week to Collins. As if Harrison doesn't have enough rising stars, the sophomore ran for 218 yards and two touchdowns in a win at Lake Orion. It was the fourth straight game he ran for more than 200 yards.
