Madison Heights High junior running back Lance Mitchell had the performance of his young career in a 56-42 win over St. Clair Shores South Lake Oct. 16.

The junior ran for five touchdowns and caught another in the win, making him a clear choice for the latest C & G Sports Player of the Week.

Mitchell ran for 306 yards and had 37 receiving yards. He gave his team its first lead at 48-42 on a 5-yard score and subsequent two-point conversion with 1:45 left.

“I just wanted to run hard,” Mitchell said after the Oct. 16 win. “The last touchdown felt amazing. It got guys on our team back into the game and it gave us the momentum. This division championship feels good. Hard work pays off.”

Madison has now won its fourth straight Macomb Area Conference Silver Division title and moved to 7-1 overall.

The Eagles end the regular season with a matchup against Center Line High, set for 7 p.m. Oct. 23 at Madison.
