Several 2016 Michigan commits kicked off their postseasons this past week while some were wrapping up their season. Either way, all but four of the commits walked away with a victory including a couple championships and multiple commits putting together their best performances of the season:
QB Brandon Peters vs Brownsburg
In a rematch of a national televised game earlier in the season, Peters led Avon to another beat down of Brownsburg and 2017's top QB recruit, Hunter Johnson. The Orioles won handedly, 61-14, and will set up a fun match up for Michigan fans as Peters will take on ATH commit Chris Evans and Ben Davis for the Sectional Championship.
Peters also put together great dominant performance in his best early 2000's Eminem costume (on the far right):

- Final Stats: 12 of 18 for 260 yards and 3 TDs; 3 rushes for 21 yards
QB/ATH Victor Viramontes vs King
Though he didn't start the game because of a "unspecified discipline reason" (per The Press Enterprise), Viramontes came in the 2nd quarter and led Norco to a blowout win over rival King, 43-6.
Wise choice. Victor Viramontes throws a 32-yard TD pass to Tanner Vanscourt. Norco gets the conversion to go up 11-0.— Eric-Paul Johnson (@CallMeEPJ) October 24, 2015
- Final Stats: 14 of 19 for 185 yards and 1 TD; 26 yards rushing and 2 TDs
RB Kingston Davis and LB Dytarious Johnson vs Lee
Davis and Johnson had good games but it wasn't enough as Prattville fell to the Lee Generals, 48-28, on Friday night.
- Davis' Final Stats: 30 carries for 129 yards and 4 TDs
ATH Kiante Enis vs Eastern
Another week, another ridiculous performance for Enis. He averaged 25.6 yards per carry (no, that's not a typo) and led Winchester to a 1st round playoff win over Eastern, 62-6.
- Final Stats: 14 carries for 358 yards and 7 TDs; 1 reception for 41 yards; 474 all-purpose yards
ATH Chris Evans vs Pike
Evans was another commit that sat out part of the game for his team, though his was because of a leg injury. But that didn't stop him from putting together his bet performance of the season as he racked up 4 TDs and led Ben Davis to a 55-27 playoff win.
As for Evans' match up with Brandon Peters in the next round:
Evans says Brandon Peters texted him good luck prior to tonight's game. "I think he was trying to be sarcastic."— Michael Sanborn (@mikesanborn) October 24, 2015
- Final Stats: 28 carries for 218 yards and 4 TDs; 1 reception for 14 yards
WR Ahmir Mitchell vs Lower Cape May
While Mitchell wasn't the star performer in this one (2017 RB Bo Melton, a name to remember, had 3 TDs), he helped lead Cedar Creek to a 48-0 win and moved to 5-1 on the season.
WR Brad Hawkins and DE Ron Johnson vs Bishop Eustace
The Camden duo helped move the Panthers 5-2 on the season with a 33-10 win over the Crusaders.
TE Sean McKeon vs Westborough
McKeon and Shepherd Hill have started to put it together in the last couple weeks. After starting the season 0-4, the Rams have won three straight including their win over Westborough, 35-14, on Friday night. And McKeon helped lead the way.
Shepherd Hill 21, Westboro 0, HALF: Josh Gelb (31 run) and Sean McKeon (11 pass from Wong-Li) have Rams rolling.— Worcester T&G Sports (@tgsports) October 23, 2015
- Final Stats: 3 receptions for 49 yards and 1 TD
OT Erik Swenson vs Proviso East
Swenson and Downers Grove South ended their season on a high note Friday night when they knocked off the Pirates 30-12 and finished the year 3-6.
OT Devery Hamilton vs FCA
Hamilton and Gilman are ranked #10 in the country and showed it once again as they handled Friendship Collegiate Academy 41-0 on Friday night.
OL Ben Bredeson vs Verona
Bredeson helped the Warhawks rush for over 200 yards on Friday night as they beat Verona in the playoffs 10-3.
OG Michael Onwenu vs King
In the PSL Championship at Ford Field, Onwenu and Cass Tech lost a close one to King, 27-25. It was a tough loss that the Technicians will look to forget as they move into the state playoffs.
DL Rashad Weaver vs South Broward
After winning homecoming king, Weaver helped lead Cooper City to a 22-12 win on Thursday night.
LB/FB David Reese vs Lake Orion
While there may be some questions surrounding Reese's commitment to Michigan thanks to the amount of offers he's landed recently, there isn't a question about his game. Reese starred on both sides of the ball but it wasn't enough for his team as Farmington fell to Lake Orion, 17-14.
- Final Stats: 13 rushes for 125 yards and 1 TD; 13 solo tackles and 17 total tackles
S/LB Devin Gil and S Josh Metellus vs Cypress Bay
The Flanagan commitment duo helped lead the Falcons to another shutout and a 2nd straight district championship as they blew out Cypress Bay, 37-0.
