He also ran for 182 yards on 24 carries in Caledonia's win over Hudsonville 40-14. The Fighting Scots are now 4-0 thanks to Townsend's big night. 

MVP Candidate #3: Byron Center senior quarterback Hunter Schichtel 

Schichtel was all over the field on Friday night against Lowell. The Bulldogs senior quarterback rushed for a whopping 297 yards on 19 carries, for an average of 15.6 yards per run. Schichtel also recorded five touchdowns leading Byron Center to the 48-35 win against the Red Arrows. 

MVP Candidate #4: Whitehall junior quarterback Kyle Stratton

In the annual Battle for the Bell game against Montague, Stratton made a play in every way possible. The junior Vikings quarterback accounted for 314 yards of total offense. He scored a few touchdowns with both his arms and his legs, finding the end zone five different times. Stratton helped Whitehall score 60 points in the 60-6 victory over Montague.
