Video: Mark Ingram vs. Mike Schaaf

FLINT, Mich. - Saginaw Arthur Hill shook up the Saginaw Valley League Standings last Friday by handing Mark Ingram and his Flint Southwestern Academy teammates their first loss of the 2007 high school football season.

With the win, The Lumberjacks moved to 3-2 on the season and kept their playoff hopes alive. Southwestern Academy fell to 4-1 on the year and now sits one and a half games behind Mount Pleasant (5-0) and a half game behind Midland (4-1) in the SVL standings.
Ingram, who is on pace to rush for more than 2,000 yards as a senior, did his best to keep Southwestern Academy in the game.

Ingram scored on touchdown runs of 8 and 34 yards respectively, but it wasn't enough to turn back Arthur Hill at historic Atwood Stadium in Flint.

The Lumberjacks were led by star quarterback Mike Schaaf who threw for 215 yards against heavily-favored SWA. Schaaf completed 13 of the 20 passes he attempted and found wide receiver James King with precision scoring strikes of 45 and 47 yards respectively.

A 6-foot-6, 200-pounder, Schaaf also showed good mobility while rushing for a 12-yard touchdown.

Schaaf, a two-year starter for SWA, is hearing from most of the Big Ten including Michigan State and Michigan.

The strong-armed junior is one of several talented in-state quarterbacks in 2009 and could become one of the most sought after signal callers in the Midwest.
