Game of the Week
#4 Ben Davis (1-0) at #3 Avon (1-0)

The game of the week features two top 5 teams that are capable of making a deep tournament run. However, these teams could see each other again later in the playoffs. Ben Davis and Avon both are coming off big wins from week one. This matchup features two of the best running backs in the Midwest. Delbert Mimms III, a Vanderbilt commit, and Sampson James, an Ohio State commit, will put their talents on display in this matchup. Watch for Avon QB Henry Hesson, a class of 2021 prospect to be a difference maker. Giants lost a lot to graduation but benefits from being one of the biggest schools in Indiana to help reload.
