Lansing Catholic’s state-championship aspirations would have been shattered if it weren’t for Remy Collard’s game-tying goal. Ionia football wouldn’t have ended its season with an upset victory if it weren’t for Matt Grand-Girard’s 46-yard touchdown. Ithaca football needed Brayden Shaw’s score to help hold off Shepherd and capture another perfect regular season.
All three Lansing-area athletes dazzled in last week’s high school action, but only one play can be voted as the State Journal’s high school video of the week.
Watch and vote below for the video you feel is most deserving of the weekly award. A story on the play will be posted on LSJ.com later in the week.
Videos can be best submitted weekly until 5 p.m. Sunday using the Twitter hashtag #LSJVOW or emailed to James L. Edwards III at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week we’ll select the best videos and post them online for public voting.
Videos can be of any high school event: A great play from any sport, a pep rally, a matching band performance, someone being honored or a team choreographed dance at practice. If you find it interesting, we want to see it.
This summer, we’ll chose 10 of the best videos from the entire school year and ask you to vote on the video of the year. The winner will be recognized at the Lansing State Journal Greater Lansing Sports Awards banquet.
(Note: The poll to vote is at the bottom.)
REMY COLLARD, LANSING CATHOLIC: Early in the second half of last week’s Division 3 district semifinals match against Williamston, Collard connected on a 20-plus-yard strike to even the score. Lansing Catholic went on to win the game in a penalty-kick shootout.
MATT GRAND-GIRARD, IONIA: The sophomore wide receiver connected with junior quarterback John Meyer for a 67-yard touchdown reception. The Bulldogs defeated Division 4 No. 9-ranked Lakewood, 35-30.
BRAYDEN SHAW, ITHACA: Shaw’s 7-yard touchdown run helped Ithaca top Shepherd, 31-24, and finish the regular season undefeated.
