As we welcome November, several Michigan football commitments say hello to the playoffs while a couple say goodbye to their senior seasons. While it's tough for the players who won't put the pads on again until they get to Ann Arbor, multiple commits kept their championship hopes alive with late game heroics, including their future quarterback.
QB Brandon Peters vs Cathedral
The heralded Michigan quarterback recruit continues to put a smile on Jim Harbaugh's face as he put up great numbers and led his team to a 2 OT win over Cathedral, 37-34, to give Avon the 6A Regional Championship:

QB/ATH Victor Viramontes vs Centennial
Viramontes and Norco took on one of the best high school football teams in the country on Thursday night and Centennial played like it. They put the whoopin' on Norco, 67-20, to knock the Cougars to 8-2 on the season. Even though the score was got a little out of hand, the Michigan commit had a pretty good game on the stat sheet, scoring through the air and on the ground.

ATH Kiante Enis vs Eastbrook
With help from his brother, Boo, Enis led Winchester to a Sectional Championship on Friday night as they knocked off Eastbrook, 44-28. His brother scored two huge touchdowns for the Golden Falcons but it was the Michigan commit that went over the century rushing mark, yet again.

OT Devery Hamilton vs McDonogh
Hamilton and Gilman had their biggest game of the year as they played their arch rivals, McDonogh, in the 100th meeting between the two schools. And, like most of his season, the Michigan commit helped lead his team to victory, winning 35-28 and wrapping up the MIAA A Title.
OL Ben Bredeson vs Oconomowoc
Bredeson helped Arrowhead rush for more than 300 yards on Friday night and move on in the playoffs with a big win over the Raccoons, 28-21.
