A victorious Leafa College Spirit Gridiron locker room at Kelly/Shorts Stadium in Mount Pleasant, Mich. was playing reggaeton mashups as Dan Harding's victorious Spirit players danced after a 121-17 rout of the Central Michigan Chippewas. Former Leafa offensive lineman Herman Wallwork surrendered four sacks as the pass rush made the so-called "traitor" pay for his lack of loyalty to the Spirit. Quarterback Cooper Kanie passed for 160 yards while rushing for 576 yards and eight total yards on offence. Cornerback Luca Mizushima recorded eight tackles and two interceptions to pace the defence.

Halfback Ethan Wakamatsu ran for 294 yards and four scores, halfback Jackson Tatara ran for 124 yards and three majors, wide receiver Xavier Kim caught three passes for 53 yards and a touchdown and wideout Dayne Tsunashi led in blocking with 24 pancakes. Kim added 15.

On defense, middle linebacker Roy Hanamura recorded 20 tackles, while left outside linebacker Leo Tatsumi added 12 and a sack. Right end Lewis Sakishima recorded three sacks on the day while defensive tackle Levi Iori had two. Strong safety Lee Bongdal also had an interception while cornerback Billy Ooji had four tackles for loss to go with nine total on the day.

Leafa improve to 1-0 and return to action next week against the Ohio State Buckeyes.
