The Trojans appeared to be firmly in control with a 24-3 lead early in the fourth quarter, but an 80-yard touchdown on a trick play, then a turnover by Fruitport's offense gave Newaygo the ball on the Trojans' 22-yard line with a chance to get back into the game.

Three players later, Fruitport safety Mike Reyes undercut a Newaygo receiver and picked off quarterback Weston Butler's pass in the end zone.

Fruitport proceeded to drive the ball 80 yards in three minutes, capping the drive with a 12-yard touchdown run by quarterback Tyler Fehler and a 30-10 advantage with just six minutes to play in the game.

"Mikey Reyes made a great play in the end zone," said Trojans' coach Steve Wilson, whose team is now 2-0 on the year and 1-0 in league action. "The kid is such a great athlete. We don't have a lot of kids, but the kids we do have this year, I really like."

Reyes also made his presence felt on offense, rumbling for 135 yards on 15 carries, including touchdown runs of 17 and 4 yards. Fehler added 109 rushing yards and was 3-of-5 passing for 40 yards, including a 21-yard scoring strike to tight end Cody Bayle.
