SCHOOL: Clarkston Everest Collegiate Mountaineers

LEAGUE: CHSL-Intersectional 2

HEAD COACH: Mike Pruchnicki, fifth season

LAST SEASON’S RECORD: 8-3, 2-2 CHSL-Intersectional 2 (third)

KEY RETURNEES: Grant Burgess, sr. QB/DB (All-State); Simon Fenske, sr. RB/DB/K/P; Luke Luttinen, sr. OL/DL; Josh Legg, sr. RB/DB; Nicholas Wilborn, sr. OL/DL; Maximilian Engle, jr. OL/DL; Michael Jones, jr. RB/DB; Nino Mastromatteo, jr. RB/LB/KR; Trevor Myers, sr. OL/DB; Nate Emmert-Buck, jr. OL/DL

OUTLOOK: Four seasons of football and four postseason berths. That’s pretty impressive for a program still in its early stages. The Mountaineers are low in numbers with 15 players, but have one of the state’s best small-school QBs and plenty of returning talent. If they stay healthy, there’s no reason to see Everett take a step back.


SCHOOL: Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes Lakers

LEAGUE: CHSL-Intersectional 2

HEAD COACH: Josh Sawicki, fourth season

LAST SEASON’S RECORD: 6-4, 4-0 CHSL-Intersectional 2 (first)

KEY RETURNEES: Noah Robak, jr. WR; David Balent, jr. Te/LB; Vince Oliver, jr. SL/SE; Grant Ross, soph. QB/SE; John Ogurick, sr. OL/DL

KEY NEWCOMERS: Blake Hollar, sr. SL/CB

OUTLOOK: Judging by the numbers of making the postseason 25 times in the past 27 seasons WOLL as a state powerhouse. Even a rebuilding season, the Lakers still won a division title and reached the postseason.


SCHOOL: Madison Heights Bishop Foley Catholic Ventures

LEAGUE: CHSL-Intersectional 2

HEAD COACH: Brian Barnes, first season

LAST SEASON’S RECORD: 3-6, 1-2 CHSL-Intersectional 2 (third)

KEY RETURNEES: Kendal Taylor., sr. RB; Cameron Cope, sr. DB; Franklin Karma, sr. DB; Wyatt Nadozny, sr. LB; Randy Crembi, sr. WR/CB; Braden Mussat, soph. QB

OUTLOOK: Three straight losing seasons and just six wins in that span, plus a new coach, is plenty of fuel to propel the Ventures into the right direction. There is a solid core of athletes and the hope is to get Bishop Foley back above five-hundred and back into postseason contention.


SCHOOL: Marine City Cardinal Mooney Catholic Cardinals

LEAGUE: CHSL-Intersectional 2

HEAD COACH: Jared Greenia, fourth season

LAST SEASON’S RECORD: 1-8, 0-4 CHSL-Intersectional 2 (fifth)

KEY RETURNEES: Quincy Green, jr. QB; Dazio Travis, sr. DT/OT; Troy Webster, sr. WB/CB/SE; Collin Smith, sr. OL

KEY NEWCOMERS: David Troma, jr. LB (transfer from Fraser); Daniel Everhardt, sr. DB

OUTLOOK: This will be the fourth season since the Cardinals moved back from 8-Man football to 11-Man football and will try to drastically improve from its 1-8 ledger a year ago. There is plenty of talent, plus some key newcomers that may just help the rejuvenation process.


SCHOOL: Royal Oak Shrine Catholic Knights

LEAGUE: CHSL-Intersectional 2

HEAD COACH: John Goddard, 41st season

LAST SEASON’S RECORD: 9-3, 3-1 CHSL-Intersectional 2 (second)

KEY RETURNEES: Dan Romano, jr. TB; Josef Mehall, sr. SL; Victor Carpenter, sr. OL; Connor Gum, sr. OL/DT; Jonathan Robinson, sr. C; Brennan Smith, sr. WR

OUTLOOK: With a college prospect at running back and a beefy front line, the Knights should be able to put points on the board. If Shrine can gel on defense the Knights could be a playoffs-caliber team once again. Shrine has reached the postseason in 16 of the previous campaigns.
