ONTV Feature Writer: Sammy Taromina
Written Saturday January 4th at 9:30 PM
Happy New Year to all and hope everyone is well. I will describe the Top 21 more in depth on the Podcast which will be posted soon.
Anyway here is the Top 21 and the Top Games of the Week. The records are current and up to date.

North Farmington at Ferndale (Tuesday): This will be a huge test for the Raiders. For the Eagles this game could prove if they belong in the Red or not.

West Bloomfield at Macomb Dakota (Tuesday): The Lakers have handled their brutal non-league schedule well. If West Bloomfield can shut down Ryan Rollins then this will be very interesting.

Troy at Stoney Creek (Tuesday): The Cougars defense vs the Colts offense will be the matchup to watch.

Troy at Farmington (Friday): Brody Parker vs Jaiden Atkins but whose role players shows up will determine this game.

Lake Orion at Lapeer (Friday): This should be a very physical game on Friday night.

Lake Orion at Oak Park (Tuesday): Two Jekyll and Hyde teams showing up in this game. It will be an interesting game of two different styles.

Avondale at Royal Oak (Tuesday): Two teams that are trying to get back on track.

Troy Athens at Berkley (Tuesday): Could be an early indicator who wins the Blue.

West Bloomfield at North Farmington (Friday): This should be an interesting matchup. Both teams are team oriented squads and deep which always helps.

Rochester at Pontiac (Friday): The Phoenix had a good showing against Clarkston. It should be interesting how they respond against a good Falcons squad.

Farmington at Groves (Tuesday): Both teams are coming off tough losses. It will be interesting which set of Falcons will bounce back.

Stoney Creek at Groves (Friday): This is a very interesting matchup of two quick and athletic squads going against one another.

Oxford at Adams (Friday): If the Wildcats can get some help for Trey Townsend especially in the interior then they will be fine. In a tough matchup which has Peyton Prieskorn and both Urusy brothers it could be very interesting.

Oak Park at Clarkston (Friday): The Wolves have been rolling since losing to St. Marys. Clarkston has relied on three players carrying them thus far which is dangerous. The Knights are an interesting team to watch.

Ferndale vs Detroit Edison (Sunday, 4 PM Oakland County Classic at Oakland): The Eagles will have a tough non league game at Oakland on Sunday afternoon when they play Detroit Edison. The Pioneers have had a good season and should test Ferndale. It will be interesting to see what happens.

Groves vs Detroit Cass Tech (Sunday 2 PM, Oakland County Classic at Oakland): The Falcons will have a tough matchup with Detroit Cass Tech. The Technicians are solid and is one of the top teams in the Detroit Public School League. It will be very interesting to see what happens.

Oak Park at Belleville (Saturday): The Knights will have two tough matchups with Lake Orion and Clarkston before taking on the host Tigers in the Belleville Classic. It will be an interesting matchup to say the least for Oak Park.

North Farmington vs Ann Arbor Huron (Saturday 5:20 PM, Belleville Classic at Belleville): The Raiders will have a tough matchup looming on Saturday as they play the River Rats in Belleville. North Farmington has a ton of experience as we mentioned. This will be a very interesting matchup to say the least.

Pontiac vs Ferndale University Prep (Sunday 12 PM, Oakland County Classic at Oakland): The Phoenix will have an very interesting matchup with Ferndale University Prep. Pontiac should be tested and it will be interesting to see what happens in this game.

Top Games (Girls)- Jan 6th thru Jan 11th

Avondale at Lake Orion (Monday): Dragons much different team than last year.

Troy Athens at Oxford (Tuesday): This will be the test for the Red Hawks. Troy Athens looking really good lately.

North Farmington at Lake Orion (Thursday): Raiders and Dragons have no love loss for each other.

Oxford at Adams (Thursday): Expect this one to be a tight and close game as always.

Stoney Creek at Bloomfield Hills (Monday): Do the Cougars have an answer for Jordan Banks????

Clarkston at West Bloomfield (Thursday): Both teams are deep and talented which should be an interesting game on Thursday.

Avondale at Troy (Thursday): Do the Yellow Jackets have an answer for Athena Sampson.

Troy at North Farmington (Monday): Can the Colts handle the gym of the Raiders???

Southfield Arts and Tech at West Bloomfield (Monday): There should be plenty of star power in this matchup on Monday.

Seaholm at Berkley (Monday): Maples trying to recover from a bad loss to Oak Park while the Bears are looking to bounce back after losing to Rochester.

Stoney Creek at Royal Oak (Thursday): This will be an interesting matchup of two defensive first teams.

About Me

Saginaw BayI have highest function of autism (Asperger Syndrome.) I’m a huge Dallas Stars fan. I like to play and watch football, especially when the Dragons play on Friday nights. I am a 2006 alum and used to play football for the Dragons. I ran track, I ran the 100, 200, 400 meter dashes along with shot-put and discus. During my time in Orion I was a manager for Junior Varsity Boys Basketball team. I’m the volleyball, girls basketball, and football announcer for the team and do the book on the road for girls basketball. I do the clock for volleyball in the fall along with girls basketball in the winter and announce some boys basketball games as well. In the spring I coach shot-put at Scripps Middle School, in my fifth season coaching. I run the shot-put for high school meets. I played Special Olympics Basketball, I’ve won three gold medals for them. I host “Between Taorminas” which is on ONTV along with a podcast called “OAA Now”. In other various things outside of Lake Orion, I love to jet ski over Saginaw Bay. Saginaw Bay is basically my life. I’m a trained weather spotter for the National Weather Service for Oakland and Huron counties.View my complete profile
