After a delay due to COVID-19, the high school football season finally kicked off this past weekend. There were plenty of big time performances throughout the state, but here are some of the top performers in Oakland County from the 2021 class.

Bendtsen accounted for five total touchdowns, three passing and two rushing, and led his team to a 38-0 victory over Saginaw Heritage. He is an athletic passer with a solid arm and he showed his dual-threat playmaking ability Friday night. He currently holds an offer from Army and has received plenty of other offers from D2 programs, but he could pick up more D1 interest with more performances like this one.

Williams was a problem on defense in a big win over Walled Lake Western. He reportedly had four sacks and a forced fumble on the night and could become a fast riser this season. His combination of height, length and athleticism should intrigue college coaches. He holds a mixture of football and lacrosse offers to this point, but he should see more offers as the season progresses.
