Sturgis at Niles

One of the top quarterbacks in the state of Michigan will be the opponent of the Niles Vikings in their season opener Friday night.

Chance Stewart and the Sturgis Trojans come to town for a Big 16 non-divisional clash.

Both teams come into the contest seeking their first victory of the season.

Niles was blanked by Battle Creek Lakeview 28-0, while Sturgis fell to Portage Central 55-0.

Stewart originally committed to Wisconsin during his junior year, but a change of coaches for the Badgers made him de-commit and switch to Western Michigan University.

Stewart was 9-of-18 last week for 84 yards and three interceptions.

Matthew Phillips was the leading rusher for the Trojans with 48 yards.

Niles will be looking to get on track offensively.
