GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — Forest Hills Eastern is enjoying the most successful season in school history, Friday night in our game of the week the Hawks (8-0) can claim the OK Bronze title outright and complete an undefeated regular season if they can beat rival Forest Hills Northern (6-2).  The Huskies are hoping to grab some momentum heading into the playoffs as they continue life without quarterback Jake Martin.

Lowell is after an outright OK White championship in the Blitz Battle as the Red Arrows visit Grand Rapids Christian (5-3).  The Eagles can share the title with Lowell (7-1) if they win and would also punch their ticket to the playoffs.

Four teams begin the night tied for first place in the OK Red and each one of them plays another team that is part of that tie meaning the winner of Hudsonville (6-2) at Rockford (5-3) is guaranteed a shore of the championship as is the winner of Grandville (5-3) at East Kentwood (6-2).
