Good morning, everyone, and how are you today? Like many others, we are forging ahead despite the disturbing events in the U.S. Capitol. Sorry to say, this was easy to predict (a few years ago, in fact). But there is work to be done, so time to get cracking. We are firing up the coffee kettle and brewing another cup of stimulation — our choice today is French vanilla. Feel free to join us. Meanwhile, as always, we have assembled a few tidbits for you to digest. We hope today is productive and you conquer the world. Stay in touch and stay safe — wear a mask. …The leaders of Operation Warp Speed will continue working on the vaccine rollout during the Biden administration, but Moncef Slaoui, the chief scientific adviser to the government’s vaccine accelerator, will not stay on for long, STAT tells us. Slaoui will take on a reduced role as a consultant for four to six weeks before departing, while Gen. Gustave Perna, Operation Warp Speed’s chief operating officer, said he has not been told whether he will remain at the initiative.

Photo/Tim ReillyThe victory marked the 500th win for Muskegon at Hackley Stadium since it opened in 1907.“Our offense is playing great, and expectations are really high (heading into the playoffs),” Muskegon coach Shane Fairfield said. “But right now I need to relax a bit and realize we’re 9-0 and enjoy it.”Reeths-Puffer’s game plan was to pass and pass early. Unfortunately, quarterback Evan Moskwa’s first pass, on the first play of the game, was intercepted by Kolbe Lewis.Muskegon fumbled four plays later, and the Rockets recovered, but were forced to punt. The Big Reds took the ensuing drive 68 yards, culminating in a Cameron Martinez touchdown run from six yards out. The PAT made it 7-0 lead with 7:32 left in the first quarter.Reeths-Puffer put together a 13-play drive but was stopped at the Big Reds’ 16 on fourth down.Muskegon scored quickly after that, when Jeremiah Lockhart ran 45 yards down the middle of the field to give his team a 14-0 lead with 1:41 left in the opening quarter.The Rockets again put together a long drive, this time 11 plays, and again, faced a fourth down deep in Big Reds territory.But this time R-P converted, when Moskwa hit Carter Fulton on an 8-yard TD strike, to cut the lead to 14-6 with 9:36 left in the second quarter.Cameron Martinez rushes past Reeths-Puffer’s No. 2 Carter Fulton and No. 21 Jalen Williams. Photo/Tim ReillyTrying to catch the Big Reds off guard, Rockets coach Kyle Jewett called for the onside kick, which failed, giving the ball back to Muskegon at midfield.“We’re realistic, and know the more possessions we have against this kind of team, the better chance we have to win,” the Rockets coach said. “We knew we’d have a tough time stopping them.”Muskegon took advantage of the short field, and Brendan Rollenhagen’s one-yard score put the home team up 21-6 with 7:55 left in the half.Lockhart scored from 3-yards out with 41 seconds left in the half to give Muskegon a 28-6 lead at the break.Reeths-Puffer tried another onside kick to start the second half, failed again and gave the Big Reds the ball at the 49. Six plays later Demario Robinson scored on a 17-yard run for a 35-6 lead, with 9:31 left in the third.Moskwa completed 4 of 4 passes on the ensuing drive, and connected with Daven Fox on a 44-yard TD pass to cut the lead to 35-12 with 8:31 left in the third quarter.Moskwa finished the night 23 of 44 through the air for 276 yards, often finding his receivers open on short routes.“They came right out and challenged us,” Fairfield said about the Rockets. “In coverage we were right there and just not making the play, or we’d blow a coverage. But everything is fixable, not time to panic about it.”Muskegon finished off the third quarter with rushing touchdowns from Martinez (7 yards), Hyrosha Wilson (20 yards) and Rollenhagen (1 yard) for a 55-12 lead.With their backups in for the fourth quarter, the Big Reds only scored once when quarterback Johnny Martin III found the end zone from four yards out with 10:07 left in the game.Muskegon finished the game with 566 total yards of offense, including 513 on the ground.Lockhart had 12 carries for 177 yards, Martinez had 15 carries for 151 yards and Robinson finished with five carries for 85 yards. Martinez also completed three of four passes for 53 yards.Reeths-Puffer finished with 338 total yards. Moskwa rushed for 61 yards on nine carries. Fulton had 12 receptions for 142 yards and Fox finished with six catches for 98 yards.
