ordan Gruber
was selected Big
Ten Offensive
'Player of the Week in
men's soccer for the
week of Aug. 30-Sept.
The Michigan State
University senior for-
ward netted four goals
and added two assists
in three games. The
Birmingham Groves
graduate scored two goals, including the
game-winner, in the Spartans' 3-0 sea-
son-opening victory at Bowling Green.
He added one goal and two assists in a
4-2 win over St. Francis (Penn.), then
scored again in a 3-0 victory over
Western Illinois.
Birmingham Seaholm's M.G. Shapiro
was promoted to head football coach,
after serving as junior varsity coach last
year. A 1997 Seaholm graduate, Shapiro
was a starting guard/defensive end who
captained the Maples his senior year.
While attending the University of
Michigan, Shapiro helped coach
Seaholm players during summer work-
outs and team camp. He became a full-
time coach at Seaholm after graduation.
Shapiro's current assistants include
long-time Seaholm offensive coordinator
Matt Turner, who held the same posi-
tion when Shapiro played for the
Maples. Having his former coach as his
assistant "brings out the best in me,"
Shapiro says. "I have so much respect for
him that I find myself trying to do my
best in front of him."
West Bloomfield's quintet of Jewish
football players includes two returning
seniors, two-way lineman Mike Burda
and running back/linebacker Sam
Rosenbaum, as well as three juniors:
Mike Peres and David Blumer, who
both play linebacker and fullback, plus
two-way lineman Mike Levine.
Farmington's football team includes
Josh Rollins, a junior offensive tackle/
linebacker. Junior linebacker/ guard
Gabe Schwartz is a first-year varsity
player at Farmington Harrison.
Brian Indianer has displayed a nose
for the football while playing for Walled
Lake Central's freshman team. Indianer
recovered an onside kick attempt and
two fumbles in the Vikings' 20-6 victory
over Canton. Indianer nearly duplicated

his feat against Westland John Glenn,
recovering an onside kick try and anoth-
er fumble as Central won its third
straight game, 22-15.
Indianer is a starting tight end and
defensive' end. He receiVed Hillel Day
School of Metropolitan Detroit 's inau-
gural Herbert W. Kaufman boys' schol-
ar/athlete award last spring. Liz Traison
won the girls' award.
Lloyd Strausz, 86, won the table ten-
nis championship in the 85-89 age
group at the

four years. A lifelong

Senior tournament in
Pittsburgh next June.
