In this Michigan recruiting news update, Michigan Wolverines commit Mike Weber carried the ball 32 times for an eye-popping 404 yards and five touchdowns in Cass Tech's 48-35 victory over Chippewa Valley on Saturday for the Division 1 regional title.
Per Ricky Lindsay of MLive.com, "according to Weber, who is also a Michigan High School Football Player of the Year top 10 selection, it was the most yards totaled by him in a single game during his four-year career at Cass Tech."
Weber had ten carries for double-digit gains on Saturday, almost singlehandedly willing Cass Tech to the semifinals against Saline next week.
"Every time I get the ball, I was like, this may be my last carry on this field," Weber said, not wanting his high school career to come to an end. "I just pushed through it with every carry I got."
Cass Tech coach Tom Wilcher had nothing but superlatives for his running back after his amazing performance.
"Probably one of the best we've ever had in the PSL," Wilcher said matter-of-factly. "There's a long history of backs. I can only say right now, in this period of time right here, I know Mike's probably the best running back that we had in the last 20-30 years."
