ALBION FOLLOWS THE PATH OF SPRINGFIELD
BILL BRODERICK
he early story of this football season has been the end of Albion High School athletics and how student-athletes at that school have been welcomed at Marshall High School. That meant the end of the Albion football program. A similar story played out nearly 25 years ago as one of the core schools in Battle Creek ended its football program as Springfield High played its final football season in 1988. Today, we consider Battle Creek to have five city high schools - which is what we base all of our All-City events and Enquirer All-City sports teams on. At one time, not too long ago, that number was six - which included Springfield. But Springfield High is no longer part of the Cereal City Six. We have heard a lot about Albion this summer and the issues that school district has been facing. In May, the Albion Board of Education voted to stop offering grades 9-12 to help cover a $1 million budget deficit — effectively shutting the doors to the high school for the foreseeable future. Since then, the Marshall school district has agreed to accept Albion’s students. Throughout this school year, the Enquirer will continue a series in which we look at Marshall and Albion and how those two former rivals are learning to play together. But how long will we still be talking about Albion? After a few years, it will be just Marshall and the students who had ever walked the halls at Albion High School will have moved on. It will soon become more normal for Albion students to expect to go to Marshall as part of their trip through academia

DID YOU PLAY FOOTBALL AT SPRINGFIELD HIGH?
Springfield played its last football game in the 1988 season. As 25 years have gone by, the Enquirer wants to talk to people that were a part of the tradition and history of Springfield football - from all classes. If you have something to share about playing football at Springfield or would like us to contact you, send an email to bcesports@battlecreekenquirer.com

and prep sports. Albion High School sports will become an afterthought. Like Springfield High School sports. But that is too bad. Springfield had its own sports identity at one time before students at that school were shipped on to other school districts,

such at Battle Creek Central. Who remembers what it was like to be a Springfield Ram? That’s what we want to find out. We are looking for former players and coaches from Springfield - especially from the football program, as we are currently throwing around the pigskin. Were you apart of those back-toback undefeated seasons in 1971-72? Or maybe you were part of the three teams on either side of that run that went 40-3 over a five-year period - still one of the more dominant runs by any city school in high school football. Or, were you part of the final years when Springfield went 1-8 in its last two seasons before ending the football program and eventually the high school? We want to hear your stories.

A TRADITION OF
Is Welke the next college quarterback to come out of Marshall?
Bill Broderick

Marshall’s Danny Welke is looking ahead to the possibility of playing quarterback at the next level. NICK GARRISON/FOR THE ENQUIRER

In the last 20 years in the Battle Creek area, there has been two football players that have gone on to play quarterback at a Division I college. And they both came from Marshall High School. The Redhawks‘ returning signal caller Danny Welke is trying to take that number to three. With a big junior season, Welke showed the potential to be a college-level quarterback. He’s hoping a big senior year will help him reach that level and he’s able to follow in the footsteps left for him at Quarterback High. Using that 20-year window once again, as Marshall sent Ryan Van Dyke to play quarterback at Michigan State and Evan Sharpley to play quarterback at Notre Dame, the other 22 area schools combined to send zero quarterbacks to play that position at the Division I level. So what is it about Marshall that makes it a quarterback hotbed? Those that are part of it, say it’s all about how these quarterbacks look to pass the torch - and try to help whoever is the next prospect. “I think the way it is at Marshall, especially at quarterback, is that we all try to give back. So wherever we may go, we always try to come back and help where we can,” Van Dyke said. “So a quarterback at Marshall gets a little extra. From the beginning, Danny has been coached at the college level. I have taught him stuff I learned in college and in my time in the pros and Evan has taken the same approach.” Sharpley agrees with his fellow former Marshall quarterback. “It’s a little expected for former players to come back and help. Personally, for me and Ryan, we are passionate about it so we are there for any of the quarterbacks,” Sharpley said. “It was the same for me. It was great to gave a guy like Ryan, who had success in college and pro ball, and have him come

back and give advice and I think that’s working for Danny, too.” As a junior, Welke threw for 1,758 yards and 16 touchdown and earned allconference honors as the Redhawks went 6-4 on the season and played in the postseason after the program had missed the playoffs for a couple of years. As a 6-foot-4, strong-armed senior, Welke has the build to be a college quar-

terback prospect and definitely the pedigree, having come from Marshall. Marshall had had a long line of talented quarterbacks, that includes names like Todd Reynolds - who played in the 1980s and made it to the Division I level at Central Michigan. However, Reynolds went there as a linebacker. The stars of the group are two players who not only were Division I quarter-

back prospects, but where among the best at their position in the nation during their senior year. After leading Marshall to back-toback trips to the Pontiac Silverdome and the state finals, Van Dyke was one of the top players in the state at any position and went to play at Michigan State from 1998-2001. Van Dyke went on to play in NFL Europe, was in several NFL train-

ing camps and played professionally in the Arena Football League. Sharpley was also a standout at Marshall and one of the top recruits in the state, verbally committing early during his junior season to Notre Dame. Sharpley played for the Irish from 2005-2008 and also was a member of the baseball

Things are looking up at Battle Creek Central. When you look at the recent records, it might be hard to see that. But based on the momentum the football program is enjoying in the offseason, many are confident that things are looking up for the Bearcats and that fact could soon be reflected in the record. Battle Creek Central is coming off back-to-back winless seasons, but that hasn’t hurt the enthusiasm in the program. During the summer and the preseason, total number of students out for football are up and players and coaches are looking forward to a rebound campaign. “We have a stronger commitment - a lot of kids showed up at a lot of stuff this summer and that was good to see,” said Battle Creek Central second-year head coach Lorin Granger. “The excitement is way higher and everybody is excited about playing football and that’s a big first step. “Our number had been down the last couple years, but this year we are a little bit up - we have a strong number compared to what we’ve had. And that does a lot for us, it provides us with depth, more competition on the team for playing time and makes guys try harder.” Battle Creek Central is ready to put its 18-game losing streak behind it, and once the Bearcats do that, Granger thinks BCC will be ready to continue to build the program where he wants it to be. “It’s huge to get that first win. The truth is when these kids figure out how much fun it is to win, I think it will be scary how good they can be,” Granger said. “They really haven’t experienced winning in so long, I don’t think they know what it’s about anymore.” And if the head coach is eager to see his team win, you have to believe the players are - as the members of the team have confidence they have what it takes to end the losing streak. “We just have to go out and perform. We know we can win, we just have to get it done. We have the talent on the line and

in our skill players. Our numbers are up I think it’s going to be hard to screw this up,” said BCC senior Jace Trevino. The Bearcats will be looking to get it done on offense with a small adjustment in its scheme as BCC will go back to more wing-T concepts after it was an I-formation team last year. The key part of that adjustment will be a deep backfield as Granger says any one of six guys could carry the ball in any one game. The most experience in the backfield comes from returners Victor Conley at halfback and Tyris Braiser at fullback as Khalil Lee also comes back with some carries under his belt. BCC will also look to throw the ball a bit and still may have a two-quarterback system depending if they want to run or throw with Anfernee Boykins and Julieon Coooper sharing snaps. Some skill positions that will add some speed to the offense will include Joe Bowser, an All-City player last season, as well as Phil Robinson and Curtis Trigg. BCC likes its potential on the offensive line with Trevino coming back with good experience as well as Trent Taylor and Jallen Johnson at the guard positions with Matt Gastians being counted on as a returning senior. Some new faces that will help out on the line include brothers Makalin and Shawn Mabin. BCC will stay in a 4-3 defense, but could bring a hybrid position into the linebacking group that could take advantage of the speed the team has in the defensive backfield. Trevino and Taylor return on the defensive line with Will Coleman looking to get some time there as well as Makalin Mabin.

Braiser returns at one linebacker for the Bearcats with two good prospects from the JV looking to be added to the mix in Mike Pettis and Jacob Taylor.

JESSIE CARON/FOR THE ENQUIRER

Since 2008, when the Kalamazoo Valley Association went to a 10-team league and scheduled all conference games each season, Pennfield has dominated play. The Panthers are 40-5 in league play over that span, including two league titles and two second-place finishes. After all those wins, there are several teams in the league that would like to get a little revenge against Pennfield. Well, they better hurry, because this season will be their last chance. Pennfield is playing in its final season in the KVA, planning to join a new league for the 2014-15 school year. So Panther football coach Nick Koenigsknecht is hoping his team can leave the league on a high note. “We’ve had great success in the KVA, so it would be really nice to finish it right,” Koenigsknecht said. “The league will be tough - we had another team in Ford Field last year, so our work is cut out for us. But one of our team goals is to win the KVA title one more time.” Constantine was the KVA team in Ford Field at the end of the 2012 season, losing in the Division 6 state champion-

ship game. The Falcons and Schoolcraft are supposed to be loaded again this year, which has some people in the league wondering if Pennfield will be able to go out on top in its final season in the conference. But those doubts aren’t shared by those at Pennfield football practices. “Our goals are set high, we have a lot of returning lineman, we have a lot of size on the line and they can pave the way for our backs to do what they usually do,” Pennfield senior Jake Grimes said. “Some people are down on us this year, but that’s just motivation for our team.” Pennfield is coming off an 8-2 season from last year, losing in the first round of the playoffs. That squad surprised many because it had only one returning starter to begin the season. With more experience this season, Pennfield is looking to continue to build on that success from

last year. “We have more experience coming back this year. Actually four starters on both sides of the ball and that’s a lot for us because we usually play a lot of seniors,” Koenigsknecht said. “Last year, with only one starter back, we had a lot of question marks. But I think we can learn from what happened last year and how those kids came together and worked hard and succeeded.” Pennfield will look to achieve that success based on its experience and size on the front lines, on both sides of the ball. The Panthers are looking to be strong in that area while they try to answer some questions at the skill positions. “Our front seven on both sides of the ball is a strength. We have some size, strength and experience, so we will have to rely on them,” Koenigsknecht said. “But we have a lot of question marks in our skill positions. That will be the key for us. If we can find some people there, we will have a chance to have a good season.” Anchoring the offensive line will be senior Zach Geno, at 6-foot-4, 245 pounds, and one of the bigger players the Panthers have ever had in football equipment - 6-foot-9, 285-pound junior Ryan Lowe. Pennfield is hoping Lowe can recover from a late preseason knee injury to contribute to the Panthers’ seasonlong run. Also coming back with some experience will be Jesse Coppess and Ethan Everett at the two guard spots. Competing for playing time at center is

senior Brad Duck and Tyler Lahusky. In Pennfield’s wing-T offense, the ends are asked to be part of the blocking scheme also and will be key as Jeremiah Cowham returns at 6-4, 215 pounds, with Zach Wilber, Nick Schwarz and Parker Bowen also looking for time at that spot. Behind that offensive line, Pennfield could be in position to be a little more diverse with its offense - after the Panthers relied heavily on the ground game last year. “We will throw the ball more this year because we have some players that can do that. Last year we relied on the wing-T a lot and that’s what we are known for. But people forget that two years ago we threw for over 1,500 yards and we can go back to being a little more balanced this year. That will be important this year,” Koenigsknecht said. Senior Jake Grimes returns to play quarterback after missing part of the season last year due to illness. The running game could be led by J.J. Clements, who returns as the most experienced back for the Panthers, with seniors Derek Lipps and Nick Burnett ready to take their turn as key carriers, as juniors Kody Page, DaWan Smith and senior Con-

nor Clark will be pushing for playing time. As is common at Pennfield, a lot of the same faces mentioned above will be looked to on the defensive side the ball, where the front seven will be a strength. Returning at nose tackle will be Kyle Rivera with Nathan Behnke at defensive tackle. Giving the Panthers depth on the defensive line will also be Geno, Lowe, Lahosky, Duck and Riley Boles. At defensive end, Copas, Everett and Cowham all return with some experience. And the backbone of the defense will continue to be at linebacker with two experienced players there in Clements and Lipps. Pennfield is still looking for answers in the defensive backfield as the entire unit is being replaced from last year’s team. With good size throughout the lineup and more experience returning this year, Pennfield has high expectations in the KVA. “We have a strong line, we have some guys who have had good playing time and we have pretty good size,” said Clements. “We are looking for a big year. We are going to go out and show that we can play with anybody in this league.”

After coming close for too many seasons, Lakeview finally made the playoffs last season. And now that the Spartans have had a taste of the postseason, they want more. “It was the first time in awhile that we made the playoffs, so now we want to feed off of that,” said Lakeview senior Donnie Ernsberger. “After what we learned last year, I feel like we are a lot further ahead at the start of this season and we are on the right track to build on what we did a year ago.” After going 6-3 in the regular season, Lakeview made the playoffs for the first time since 2003 as the program had gone 5-4 or 4-5 for six straight seasons. Once there, Lakeview lost in the first round to go 6-4 overall. Getting that special sixth win was a boost for the players on the squad. “It meant a lot to get over the hump finally last year and get there,” said Lakeview senior C.J. Gordon. “But now we want to go ever further this year and win some in the playoffs.” As a longtime assistant and now in his fourth year as a head coach, Lakeview’s Matt Miller says it is crucial for the program to build on the momentum the team enjoyed last season with the Spartans

won five straight to end the regular season. “It means everything to build off of what we did last year. It was a great boost to make the playoffs and get a taste of it. Now we want to improve on where we left off after those last five games to end the regular season,” Miller said. In those five games to end the season, Lakeview started to click offensively. After putting in a new offense to start the season with the veer option, the Spartans started to find their stride near midseason. They will build on that with a core group of running backs that include top returning rusher in Mike Campbell, who had over 1,100 yards last year. Adding depth to the backfield will be Tyler Underwood, Kanta Yoshino and Malik Schrad. Also key to the offense will be what Miller calls the best group of tight ends in the area in Ernsberger and Jake Love, both at 6-foot-3 with quickness and good blocking technique. Heading into the opener, the quarterback job was up for grabs as sophomore Skyler Nichols and junior Hunter Bost could both see time there. “We put in a new offense in last year and we took a little while to figure it out and once we got the basics down we really started firing on all cylinders,” Miller said. “And now so many of our guys are returning and know the system and we were able to pick up right where we left off last year and hopefully that will show on Friday nights.”

Up front, Lakeview has some experience on the offense line with all-league center Evan Eldridge and two juniors who started as sophomores in Cole Winters and Cole Cleaver. The Spartans also look for Chaz Meredith and C.J. Gordon to produce up front. “After being in this offense for a year, our line is getting off the ball a lot faster and we are all better as an offense and that’s exciting,” Campbell said. Lakeview expects to control games from the defensive side also with eight players returning who started at one time during the season last year. Ernsberger, who has gained the attention of college scouts for his play at linebacker, is one of the cornerstones of the defense. Also at linebacker, Lakeview expects to use Matt Barrett on the inside with Justice Price and Karman Munder looking for playing time at outside linebacker along with Devin Sherlock and Yoshino. On the defensive line, Lakeview features Gordon at defense end, with Jacob Harvey on the defensive line as well as Love, J.D. Jean-Jules and Meredith. In the defensive backfield, Lakeview returns Bost and Alex Schwartz. And the Spartans have a threat on the special teams as one of the best kicker/ punters in the area returns in Jake Herbers, who as a junior, is a prospect to play at the next level. Overall, with a playoff team last year, a quality group of senior returners and an undefeated JV team coming up, Lakeview is hoping for a big season in 2013. “We have taken some big strides. We lost one game in the SMAC East last year and that was to Harper Creek, which continues to be the measuring stick in the division. But we like to think we can compete with anyone in the division, so our goal is to be on top,” Miller said.

Mike Campbell will be a big part of the Spartan offense again in 2013. NICK GARRISON/FOR THE ENQUIRER

Harper Creek is enjoying its most successful era in the Beavers’ prolific football program. Back-to-back state semifinal appearances. Three straight league titles. If Harper Creek builds on those successful seasons, it will be up to a 2013 football squad that comes in with some new faces in the lineup. “We lost a lot of kids. But the saying we have here is that tradition never graduates and we want to build on the winning tradition we have here,” Harper Creek coach Ed Greenman said. “The difference is that we have been blessed with Division I-type athletes here for several years, and we don’t have that anymore, so it is a dose of reality for us. But we just have to have other kids step up and get the job done.” The positive is that most of the players who will suit up for Harper Creek this season have had a taste of winning at

the highest level. And as the Beavers look to make a transition into a new league following a final season in the Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference in 2013, Harper Creek is hungry to win some more. “We have obviously won a lot of games in the past and we want to keep that going. The confidence that comes from that winning is important. It gives us a swagger and that’s important.” said Harper Creek senior Brennan Leson. And if the Beavers do keep winning, they would be in line to make some history.

FOURTH TITLE IN A ROW
“We feel real good about that we have played for regional championships the last three years in a row, have won two of them and have come one game shy of playing for a state championship,” Greenman said. “We have some great momentum going. “We have never in the history of our school won four league championships in a row. And with this being the last year of the SMAC for us, it is definitely an emphasis of ours to do that and finish our relationship with the Big 16 on a high note.” Harper Creek will be looking to get things done on offense a little bit differently as the Beavers will change their offense by going to an I-formation after a couple years of running the veer option. Leading that change will be an experienced quarterback in Trevor Johnson, who started all of last season during the Beavers 10-3 season. He will be joined in the backfield by Anthony McNichols, who saw some playing time last season, as well as Trenten Pruitt and Jake Bishop, who will also be looking for some carries. In the I-formation, Harper Creek will use Brandon Hutson at the key fullback position. Adding to the skill positions, Harper Creek hopes to get some production out of its receivers in Mickey Barea, Brody Taylor and Tony Neumann. “Going to the I-formation, we feel like we have kids that better fit that scheme. We loved running the veer, but we are hoping we can take advantage of the skill kids we have and let them do something with the ball,” Greenman said. Leading the way on offense will be a revamped offensive line. Harper Creek does have some experience up front as Leson will play guard with a group of other lineman all looking to see where they fit in the scheme, including Chet Monawek, Turner Shaw, Grayson DeYoung, Jack Thompson, Ethan Brabant and Caleb Masten. The Beavers do have some experience at tight end with Zach Testolin at that spot with Joe Stasa also looking to contribute. Where Testolin is expected to really shine is on defense, where he returns as the cornerstone of that group and as an all-league performer at defensive end. “I really feel like we have some good speed all over the field,” Testolin said. “Everyone is looking for a good season, we are all working hard and pushing for the kind of outcome we had last year.” Also up front on defense, Harper Creek adds Masten and Monawek on the

interior as well as Thompson at the other end. Harper Creek likes its linebacker group with Leson, Hutson, Stasa, Barea and Noah Hayes all in the rotation. There is some experience in the de-

fensive backfield as well, including Pruitt, Coleton Swims, McNichols and Taylor. During Harper Creek’s latest stretch, the Beavers have won 19 straight division games - so it part of the program’s

expectations to be in the hunt again for a league title this season. “I would be very frustrated if we weren’t in every game, and very frustrated if we weren’t competing for a league championship,” Greenman said.

Practice makes perfect. Every coach goes by that, as evidenced by the number of practices they hold in the preseason. So it is with that in mind that makes St. Philip think it is perfectly capable of showing improvement in its second year in 8-man football after a season-plus worth of practices with the new scheme. “Last year, when we took the field for that first game of 8-man football against Portland St. Pats, we didn’t have a clue what we were doing. We had to learn on the fly,” said St. Philip coach Dave Downey. “But this year we have the format down and we are that much further ahead.” After going to 8-man football last year, St. Philip went to the playoffs and the Tigers hope to build on that success in year two. “We know the 8-man system now, so it will be a lot easier this year,” said St. Philip quarterback Alex Doyle. “Working on what we learned last year will be key and

improving on the mistakes we made last year.” Prior to last year’s 7-4 season, where the Tigers went to the playoffs for the first time since 2009 and advanced to the second round, St. Philip was having trouble with numbers and had struggled to get three combined wins over two seasons. As the Michigan High School Athletic Association added an 8-man division to its postseason football tournament, it made sense for the small-school Tigers to change. “In going to 8-man football, the idea

was that we wanted to be more competitive. The goal of the program is to be successful and we can be successful in 8-man, which we showed last year, and we want to build on that,” said junior captain Kevin Greenman. “We went to the regional finals last year and we want to get that far again and even further and compete for a state championship.” St. Philip feels confident it will be able to compete for a league title and a deep playoff run after losing just three seniors as the Tigers have their largest roster in a few years with 29 players. On the offensive line, St. Philip features a four-year starter in 6-foot-3, 245pound Jack Luoma at center with both guards also returning in Tyler Sonneborn and Sam Lehouiller.

ing his third year at quarterback, as the 6-3 running/passing threat will be a lot of trouble for opposing teams as he looks to be 100 percent after having knee surgery during basketball season last year. The core group of returning talent continues in the backfield with Greenman coming back at one running back with John Sweeney and Brayden Darr

giving the Tigers depth. St. Philip will also get a big boost from Isaac Cloward, who should make an immediate impact as a transfer from Lakeview. St. Philip does have some questions to answer at the receiver spot after the graduation of Jon Niland, who had 25 touchdowns a year ago. Looking to step in to make up for that production is Hunter Haley, with depth coming from David Downey and Fred Hallacy. The Tigers expect to feature a lot of speed on defense in the wide-open 8-man football scheme. Sonneborn and Lehouiller return on the defensive line with Trevor Searls and Jordan Scovie at the defensive end spots. At linebacker, Greenman and Darr return with experience as the Tigers add newcomer Cloward, who started at that

spot for Lakeview a year ago. Sweeney and Downey both return with some experience in the defensive backfield. With experience throughout the lineup, St. Philip is looking to take the next step. “Basically, last year we were a JV team with us only having three seniors,” Sonneborn said. “So having everybody back this year is a big bonus.” And it sets up a title run for the Tigers, who last won a championship in 2008. “We are probably going to be one of the stronger teams in the league with so many guys coming back,” Coach Downey said. “St. Pats and Waldron were really good last year, but they played a lot of seniors and I think they lost a lot of experience.”

Evan Sharpley - it’s nice to even be mentioned with them. But I know they did some great things so I have a lot to live up to and a lot of work to do still.” Welke is getting recruited by several schools - at both the Division I and Division II level. Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference schools like Grand Valley State University and Saginaw Valley State University are very interested in Welke. Eastern Michigan out of the Mid-American Conference was in on Welke during last season and remains interested and Western Michigan University has joined the recruiting process. WMU is an interesting school to be looking at Welke, considering the Broncos have a commitment from one of Marshall’s rival schools in quarterback Chance Stewart at Sturgis. Stewart, who gave an early verbal commitment to Wisconsin before changing to WMU, is one of the top prospects in the state and happens to be a workout partner with Welke. WMU reportedly has told Marshall that it is trying to build up a depleted group of quarterbacks and might be interested in taking Welke and Stewart. As both Welke and Stewart have been involved in private workouts with Sharpley in the past year, the Marshall senior has joked with his friend about why the Broncos would even want the star from Sturgis, when they can have the best

quarterback in his league. “Me and Chance are friends. There‘s a little good-natured trash talk when we work with Sharpley," Welke said. “I was named first-team all-conference last year at quarterback and he was on the second team - so I remind him of that a little bit sometimes.” According to Welke and Marshall head football coach Jim Hendershot, what college scouts are saying is that they like how Welke knows the game and can anticipate what’s going to happen on the football field. “Knowing defenses, I know what the

team at the school and was later drafted by the Seattle Mariners. So when those two players talk about football, Welke is more than willing to listen. “They want to help you. When they realize you are the next guy at quarterback here at Marshall, they want to help you get better,” Welke said. “For me to be able to work with them, pick their brains, that helps with everything. “It’s definitely some big shoes to fill, following guys like Ryan Van Dyke and

For three years in a row, it has been Harper Creek on top in the Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference East Division. As the saying goes, to be the champ, you have to beat the champ. And if any of the teams in the SMAC East want to beat Harper Creek, they better do it this year since the Beavers are leaving the conference in 2014. Marshall and Coldwater are also leaving the division to join Harper Creek in a new league and Sturgis is leaving to join the Wolverine Conference. There are expectations that Harper Creek will get plenty of competition for the championship this season as the top half of the league is very strong. While the Beavers went to the state semifinals last season, Lakeview and Marshall both went to the playoffs for the first time in a couple of years and those two teams should be improved with that kind of experience. The SMAC East is also a quarterback-

heavy division with a lot of talent at that all-important spot. Sturgis features Chance Stewart at quarterback, who was verbally committed to Wisconsin in the Big Ten before changing his loyalties to closer to home as he will sign with Western Michigan University on National Signing Day. Along with Stewart, Marshall features a 1,000-yard thrower in Danny Welke, Gull Lake brings back a third-year starter in Ryan Mutchler and Harper Creek returns the quarterback that took the Beavers within one win of the state title game in Trevor Johnson. How the SMAC East looks going forward is still up for discussion as the Big 16 could be down to 12 teams by this time next year, with two divisions of six teams or one large conference. But until then, the eight teams in the East Division this season should make it wide-open conference to watch.

gart (OL/DL), Darrien Bradley (OL/DL) » Outlook: Second-year coach Jeff Schorfhaar has been given the job of trying to turn around a Coldwater program that has consistently struggled over the years. Beyond going 1-8 the last two seasons, Coldwater hasn’t had a winning season since 1989. But the word out of the community is that the lower levels continue to improve and the time is coming soon for the Cardinals to get over the .500 mark. If that happens this season it will be due to a returning core group of players up front on both sides of the ball as Joel Jepson, Logan Targgart and Darrien Bradley all return with varsity experience on the offensive and defensive line. The Cardinals also have some experience returning at the skill positions with Cooper Murphy at running back and Luke Stempien at receiver. “We have a lot of returning players from last year's team combined with a J.V. team that played pretty well. We are hoping to be very competitive in the league this year,” Schorfhaar said.

Gull Lake
» Head coach: Tim Hiller (3rd season) » 2012 record: 2-7 » Top returners: Ryan Mutchler (sr., QB), Odell Miller (sr., LB/TE), Nick Miller (sr., WR/DB), Tyler Kellam (sr., WR/ DB), T.J. Haase (jr., RB/LB), Tyler Klinger (jr., WR/DB), Seth Eldridge (jr., RB/ DB), Aidan Sheehan (jr., OL/DL) » Outlook: In its first year in the SMAC East Division last year, Gull Lake found the going a little rough as the Blue Devils went 2-7 overall and failed to reverse a trend at the school that has the program without a winning season since 2009. If Gull Lake is going to turn it around it might come on the arm of thirdyear starting quarterback Ryan Mutchler, who is running an offensive system much like the one head coach Tim Hiller ran as the quarterback at Western Michigan University. The passing game could be a big strength with returning experience in receivers Nick Miller and Tyler Kellam, as well as big tight end Odell Miller, who could be in for a big senior season as he looks to be in the best shape of his high school career. “We have a good group of skill players, but we have some important spots to fill on the offensive and defensive line,” Hiller said.

Marshall
» Head coach: Jim Hendershot (4th season) » 2012 record: 6-4 » Top returners: Danny Welke (sr., QB), Madison Hautau (sr. OL/DL), Drew Maisner (sr., OL/DL), Landry Reynolds (sr., WR), Tyler Horn, Bobby Owens » Outlook: After sliding below .500 for two seasons, Marshall bounced back for a spot in the playoffs last year and the Redhawks are looking to use that momentum to return to their perennial winning ways. Marshall hopes to be able to use the talents of its returning, highly -productive quarterback in Danny Welke, but to do that the Redhawks to have to fill some holes on the offensive line. Marshall has a good start there, however, with returners Madison Hautau and Drew Maisner leading the way. Marshall may also get a boost with the addition of some football players from the Albion school district as that school

use Danny - so that’s something we have to figure out. But I think we have a good stable of backs to make that happen,” Hendershot said. “Playoffs are always a goal. We say if we make the playoffs we have the program right where we want it to be. Making the playoffs every year is paramount, it is visible and it shows you are consistent and that’s where we want to be.”

KVA IS STRONG AT THE TOP
Bill Broderick
bbroderi@battlecreekenquirer.com

2012 KVA DIVISION STANDINGS
Conf. Overall

Take a look at the Kalamazoo Valley Association in 2013, because it will look a lot different in the coming years. Perennial power Pennfield is playing in its final season in the KVA, which means there might be some more room at the top of this league after they depart as the Panthers are 40-5 in league play since 2008, including two league titles and two second-place finishes. Maple Valley is also playing in its final season in the KVA, so it will be a long goodbye throughout the 9-game league schedule for a few teams this season. This transition season should be just as tough as always as the KVA should again be pretty tough at the top. Constantine is expected to be strong again after making another trip to Ford Field last year for a state title berth. Schoolcraft was undefeated in league play and might have found itself at Ford Field also, if it hadn’t lost to the aforementioned Constantine in the playoffs. The season will kick off with a different look also as the annual series of games at Waldo Stadium on the campus of Western Michigan University won’t be played as the calendar didn’t allow for an open date.

ers from last year with an incoming junior class that will bring a great deal to the table,” Bates said. “Our kids are working hard and things are coming together. With more returning experience, the expectation of the coaches and players is that we will be a more solid and competitive team this year.”

Galesburg-Augusta
» Head coach: Tony Smith (2nd season) » 2012 record: 2-7 » Top returners: Bryce Doorlag (sr., G/LB), Sean Kerney (sr., G/LB), Andrew Forrest (jr., RB/WR/DB) » Outlook: With just two wins last year, you wouldn’t think that would much to celebrate. But after GalesburgAugusta went three straight seasons without winning a game, the Rams did take a step up a year ago and are looking to use that momentum going forward. G-A is a little short of experience, however, with only a handful of players returning who saw key playing time a year ago, including seniors Bryce Doorlag and Sean Kerney as well as Andrew Forrest. But the coaching staff has some high hopes for some newcomers, including seniors Ron Mellville and Blake Beterson, junior Nathan Belland and sophomores Jared Wiseley and Nathon Wilson. “We are young and inexperienced overall. We want to work on learning to get fundamentally strong, so when our bodies catch up to our knowledge, we can have some very good football players. We want to be competitive in every game and try to increase our win total from a year ago,” Smith said.

» Top returners: Austin Gonser (sr., WR/S), Dlan Kennedy (sr., RB/LB), Anthony Mahler (sr., WR/S), Beau Johnson (jr., QB/LB), Travis Franks (sr., OL/DL), Jeremy Fisher (sr., OL/DL), Storm Ewing (sr., OL/DL), Zach Rosenberger (sr., OL/DL), Dan Langman (sr., DL) » Outlook: Maple Valley has struggled in recent years, with its last winning season coming in 2005. But Lions’ fans don’t have to go that deep in the memory banks to remember when Maple Valley was a power with nine and 10 win seasons in the early 2000s. The 2013 group at Maple Valley is hoping to make strides toward those winning days again. Maple Valley has some key returners at the skill position with quarterback Beau Johnson, Dylan Kennedy at running back and Austin Gonser and Anthony Mahler at receiver. The Lions also return a big chunk of their offensive line in seniors Travis Franks, Jeremy Fisher, Storm Ewing and Zach Rosenberger. “The team has worked extremely hard this offseason... and we are expecting big things,” Lincoln said. “We are looking to get off to a good start with two of our biggest rivals (Olivet and Delton Kellogg). We want to bring the tradition of Maple Valley football back.”

» Head coach: Gabe Priddy (1st season) » 2012 record: 7-4 » Top returners: Rob Funk (sr., CB), Dylan Coolidge (sr., DB), Chase McGill

Delton Kellogg
» Head coach: Ryan Bates (3rd season) » 2012 record: 0-9 » Top returners: Brady Mills (sr., QB), Cameron Tobias (sr., TE), Hunter Chilton (sr., LB), Hunter Smith (sr., LB), Blake Mast (jr., T), Aric Gan (sr., OL), Devin Kalee (sr., T) » Outlook: Delton Kellogg has struggled in recent years, but the Panthers are hoping a solid group of returners can help turn around that trend. Delton Kellogg was winless last season and has had only one winning season since 2003. With a returning quarterback in Brady Mills, Delton Kellogg has a good place to start in the rebuilding project as he should also find some protection behind a line with three returners, including Blake Mast, Aric Gan and Devin Kalee, as well as tight end Cameron Tobias. The Panthers have a nice backbone to their defense with returning linebackers Hunter Chilton and Hunter Smith. “Coming off an 0-9 season, our kids are hungry. We have a number of return-

(sr., LB/OT), Shane Loney (sr., LB), Todd Candelaria (sr., DL/OT), Ryan Tennant (jr. DL/TE), Tyler Masters (sr., WR), Joe Barr (sr., WR) » Outlook: It is an end of an era at Olivet as former head coach Dean Peters stepped down after leading the program for 27 years. Peters, who has had health problems in recent years, will still be on the staff as an assistant, but the Eagles will be led by first-year head coach Gabe Priddy. Priddy inherits a strong program as Olivet has made the playoffs in nine of the last 10 years, including a trip to Ford Field and the state finals in 2010. Olivet went 7-4 last year and returns six starters on defense and five on offense, led by two-way starters Chase McGill (LB/OT), Todd Candelaria (DL/OL) and Ryan Tennant (DE/TE). “We have an outstanding group of senior leaders who have put in a lot of time to prepare their team for this season. We think the experience we have at the skill positions will allow us to be more balanced,” Priddy said.

C-S LOOKS TO STAY ON TOP
Bill Broderick
bbroderi@battlecreekenquirer.com

2012 SCAA DIVSION STANDINGS
Conf.Overall

The Southern Central Athletic Association goes by the letters SCAA. But if you switch the first two, you could easily call this the Climax-Scotts Athletic Association because the Panthers have owned the league in recent seasons. Climax-Scotts has won 27 straight league games (only counting division games in 2008-09) and has owned a nearly permanent post in first place in the conference since the early 2000s. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some programs that would love to jump up to that spot if the Panthers were to slip as Pittsford and Adrian Lenawee Christian are strong small-school powers with Bellevue and Colon owning recent playoff records themselves. Still Climax-Scotts has won 10 or more games in nine of the last 10 seasons, so until the Panthers do fall back a little they will be the favorites to win the league again.

player in small-school football in recent years, making the playoffs in four of the last five years. During that era, the Magi were led by Spencer Henley, who steps down as the head coach at Colon after nine seasons. Taking over is Darrin VandenBerg, who has been given a team that lost 11 seniors to graduation, a huge number for a Division 8 school, and has very little experience to work with. Colon only counts two players returning as starters in linebackers Ronny Moyer and Ramsey Potter from last season’s 5-5 squad, so the Magi will be looking to grow up quick under a first-year coach. “We are a young team with limited experience at several positions. That being said we still have a great opportunity to prove ourselves within our league and we look to have several players step up and make a big impact,” VandenBerg said.

Climax-Scotts
» Head coach: Kevin Langs (15th season) » 2012 record: 10-1 » Top returners: Samuel Eshuis (sr., HB/DB), Logan Simmons (sr., RB/LB), Cody Moody (sr., RB/DB), Weston Williams (sr., OL/DL), Isaac Swager (sr., TE/ DE), Anson Mannes (sr., OL) » Outlook: Climax-Scotts has always been a program that doesn’t rebuild, it reloads. And the Panthers hope to follow that philosophy again this season, but it could be a challenge after losing a talented group of seniors that helped the team win 10 games last year. Climax-Scotts does have six returning starters, including key players on the offensive line in Weston Williams and Anson Mannes as well as tight end Isaac Swager. The Panthers will look to depend on a talented offensive backfield with running back Samuel Eshuis, a member of a C-S state champion relay team, and Logan Simmons, who is coming off of knee surgery, as well as Cody Moody. “Our strength is our chemistry and senior leadership,” Langs said.

Climax-Scotts is a perennial power in the SCAA. NICK GARRISON/FOR THE ENQUIRER

Bellevue
» Head coach: Doug Blattner (6th season) » 2012 record: 4-5 » Top returners: Cole Madry (sr., TE), Ethan Bloch (sr., WR), Dakota Rose (sr., WR), Cody Rasushenberger (sr., OL), Tyler Lane (sr., RB), Darrin Sommers (jr., RB), Shane Flynn (so., OL), Landen Hess (jr., OL) » Outlook: After never making the playoffs in program history, Bellevue went to the postseason in back-to-back seasons in 2010 and 2011, but the Broncos slipped back to under .500 in 2012. Bellevue expects to be right back in the postseason chase in 2013 however, with a solid group of returners. Bellevue will be led by some key seniors at the skill position in running backs Tyler Lane and Darrin Sommers as well as receivers Ethan Block and Dakota Rose. Cole Madry is expected to be a force at tight end for Bellevue during his senior year and the offensive line will be anchored by returning senior Cody Rasushenberger as well as two underclassmen with experience in junior Landen Hess and sophomore Shane Flynn. “Being a senior-dominated team, we look to be competitive in every game and we feel like we can compete for the league title this year,” Blattner said.

BIG EIGHT CONFERENCE

FOOTBALL PREVIEW 2013

Battle Creek Enquirer

EXPECTATIONS HIGH IN BIG 8
Bill Broderick

2012 BIG EIGHT DIVISION STANDINGS
Conf. Overall

The Big Eight conference has a little bit to prove moving forward in the 2013 season. While it is true that half of the conference made the playoffs, it is also true that all four teams lost in the first round the playoffs. Getting six wins will get a lot of teams into the playoffs, but earning postseason victories will get you respect in the world of high school football and Big Eight football has some work to do in that area.

Reading ............................................................... Jonesville ............................................................. Springport........................................................... Union City ........................................................... Homer .................................................................. Concord ............................................................... Quincy.................................................................. Athens..................................................................

7-0 6-1 5-2 4-3 3-4 2-5 1-6 0-7

8-2 7-3 6-4 6-4 5-4 3-6 2-7 1-8

Quincy returns a strong running game with Jimmy Strock coming back as he has over 1,900 career yards with the Orioles. “The season looks promising with many returning contributors. A lot will depend on how our offensive line develops," Evans said.

Union City
» Head coach: Chris Davis (2nd season) » 2012 record: 6-4 » Top returners: Evan Cross (sr., OL/DL), Lucas Vaccaro (jr., OL/DL), Aaron Watson (jr., RB/DB), Josh Carnell (sr., QB/LB), John Kinney (sr., WR/DB), Ruben Ringle (sr., OL/DL) » Outlook: Winning seasons and making the postseason is expected at Union City and in his first year at head coach, Chris Davis kept up that tradition by going 6-4 with a postseason berth. Union City enjoyed a 10-win season in 2011 before falling back to 6-4. Over the last 12 seasons, Union City has advanced to the playoffs 10 times. The Chargers will look to get to the postseason once again behind a strong offensive line, featuring returners Evan Cross, Lucas Vaccaro and Ruben Ringle. Union City also brings back key skill position players with running back Aaron Watson, quarterback Josh Carnell and John Kinney at receiver. “We have a tradition of excellence at Union City and our team understands the responsibility and importance of upholding that tradition. As long as we can rely on one another and live up to our program slogan of ‘count on me,’ we'll be successful," Davis said.

Athens
» Head coach: Mike Van Syckle (1st season) » 2012 record: 1-8 » Top returners: Devan Kinney (sr. DB), Hayden Bowersox (sr., TE), Matt Taylor (so., LB) » Outlook: A program that is seemingly always trying to find an identity, Athens is doing the same this year. The Indians saw their head coach resign during the season in 2012, in what was only his second campaign with the team. Mike Van Syckle took over as the interim head coach last year and remains the head coach this season. Van Syckle is working with a young team once again and is hoping to rebuild on the go. He will start that rebuilding project with a small group of returning players, including seniors Devan Kinney and Hayden Bowersox and sophomore Matt Taylor. “We are a young team in the process of rebuilding our program. Our motto this year is - AMTD - Attitude Makes The Difference. We are excited to lay the foundation for future teams now,” Van Syckle said.

Alex White as he will lead a loaded offense that also includes returning running back Chaz Hopkins. The defensive line will be anchored by returning tackle Trenton Conley, who is one of the strongest players on the team. “This is a group that has improved every single year. They have high aspirations for themselves and they expect to reach their goals,” Moffett said.

Quincy
» Head coach: Robert Evans (3rd season) » 2012 record: 2-7 » Top returners: Jimmy Strock (sr., RB), Bryce McCavitt (OL), Tristin Haylett (LB) » Outlook: Except for a five-win season two years ago, Quincy has struggled to get over three wins in any one season since going 7-3 in 2005. The Orioles dropped back to 2-7 last year, losing the final four games of the year and getting outscored 196-28 in those games.

Homer
» Head coach: Matt Moffett (2nd season) » 2012 record: 5-4 » Top returners: Alex White (sr., QB/SS), Chaz Hopkins (sr., RB), Tyler Gay (sr., FB), Kyle Winchell (sr., WR), Brock Ridgeway (sr., TE/DE), Robbie Johnson (sr., OL), Derrick Prater (jr. OL), Tanner Taylor (jr., OL/DL), Mason Smith (jr., OL), Trenton Conley (sr., OL/ DL), Tyler Ridgeway (sr., DE), Jon VAnMEter (sr., DE), Nate Sitkiewicz (jr., LB), Tyler George (jr., LB), Dylan Thomas (sr., DB), Preston Sherman (jr., DB), Gavin Towery (sr., DB) » Outlook: Homer had three straight 5-4 seasons, falling one game short of the playoffs each time as the Trojans try to get to the postseason for the first time since 2006. With 20 of the 22 positions on the field being manned by returning starters, Homer is in really good shape for the 2013 season. Homer will lean on its do-everything quarterback

for Evan,” Hendershot said. “Evan calls up and says, do you need me to come up for a few days, I’ll help... Ryan worked with Danny all of last year as his coach it’s that kind of thing all the time. “In the winter, (Danny) met probably eight Sundays in a row with Evan and Ryan both around and he just threw in the gym with a few receivers....it’s that kind of extra stuff that gives Danny an edge.“ Which is another reason college scouts should pay attention to what’s happening in Marshall this season. Both Sharpley and Van Dyke see Welke as a Division I prospect. “I like how coachable he is. He picks things up quickly and has a great strong arm,” Sharpley said. “And once you turn the lights on he comes to perform. He is a gamer.” “I’ve already contacted more colleges I can count on my fingers. People know me, people know Evan. We are local kids who played locally so people trust us and how we break down players, and I am telling people Danny is a college quarterback,” Van Dyke added. But Van Dyke is willing to take the statement one step further. “I think he ranks right up there with me and Evan, in my opinion, as far as his quarterbacking ability and how he manages the game,” Van Dyke said. “He is very cerebral and he understands how to play the game.” Welke appreciates all the support he is getting and is excited about getting the opportunity to live up to the hype. “It’s great to be considered to be possibly be the next quarterback to get to college coming out of Marshall,” Welke said. “It’s an honor really to be mentioned with them at all and hopefully I can get to the next level and and follow in their footsteps.” With all of that, Welke is still waiting on his first official Division I scholarship offer as most of the college coaches are telling him they want to see how he plays early in the season before they take the next step. Hendershot says, when, not if, Welke gets an offer - that school won’t be disappointed. “Outside of our area, he might be the best kept secret in this part of Michigan. If you listen to Ryan and Evan, they all rave about his potential to be a quarterback at the next level. I have no doubt in my mind he can be a quarterback at the next level,” Hendershot said. “Last year set him up for people to know who he was. So this year is going be about playing well enough for someone to take notice and sign him. “And if they do, they will be very happy.”

defense is going to do and where to throw the ball. I think college scouts like that about me,” Welke said. “With the way our offense is ran, it sets you up to play at the next level. We throw from under center and shotgun. Some people throw from shotgun their whole high school career and they aren’t ready for college.” But Welke seems to be ready for college gameplans, even now. “He is talking and playing at a different level. Not too many high school seniors are able to talk football at that level with whoever is recruiting him - he knows the language and can talk to college coaches that way," Van Dyke said. “When you grow up speaking Spanish, for instance, you are going to be able to speak Spanish. Danny grew up talking quarterback.“ Which is part of the secret to the success at Marshall. Youth football players at Marshall grow up knowing there is a tradition of success at the quarterback spot and that they are expected to be able to play the position at a certain level. “We have run a multiple offense since forever - so kids coming up have that mentality,” Hendershot said. “They know the quarterback is expected to run an offense and be able to throw a little bit. It’s a generational thing. The kids grow up learning to play quarterback this way. We never switched to wing-T, never went to single wing - so when they come up through rocket, they are playing I-formation, multiple formations, trying to get the defense at a disadvantage and that fosters it.” That gets back to having a rich tradition at the position. Sharpley has recently been working at the East Lake Athletic Club in Elkhart, Indiana - specializing in personal training for athletes. He has taken on a group of young quarterbacks, that include Welke and Stewart at Sturgis, as well as some from the Indiana area and is giving private instruction in the art of quarterbacking. Van Dyke worked as an assistant coach at Marshall last year and has now moved on to South Lyon High School, where he is doing the same. However, Van Dyke stays in contact with Welke, who he considers a ‘little brother’ and who has ‘set the bar of what a high school teenager should be like at Marshall.’ “It goes back years. When Evan was a sophomore, Ryan came up and worked with us through that entire season and that was a big growth season

The following are teams in the Battle Creek Enquirer readership area, but not affiliated with a conference that is traditionally covered by the Enquirer. Bronson will compete in the St. Joseph Valley league and is looking to build on a 5-4 season. Tekonsha is playing 8-man football and competing in the Southern Michigan 8-Man Football league, which also includes St. Philip. Albion, also traditionally in the Enquirer coverage area, saw its high school close and will not play this season.

a positive tone in practice and games. The key to our season will be the development of our younger players, limiting turnovers and staying healthy,” Burzynski said.

Tekonsha
» Head coach: Joe Wright (8th season) » 2012 record: 1-8 » Top returners: Riley Lloyd (jr., QB), Justin Evans (sr., WR), Greg Fouty (sr., OL), Clayton Gretzner (sr., OL), Isaac Mead (so., WR/LB) » Outlook: After making the playoffs for the first time in school history two seasons ago, a young Tekonsha team struggled last year to go 1-8. The Indians are in their third season in 8-man football and will look to be competitive in that division. Tekonsha is hoping to get good play out of a core group of returners, including quarterback Riley Lloyd, senior linemen Greg Fouty and Clayton Gretzner as well as skill position senior Justin Evans. “With our younger players having a year under their belts, we look to be improved. However, we will still be very young with four sophomores and eight freshmen on the roster,” Wright said.

MSU HOPES TO REBOUND ON OFFENSE
Spartans face questions at QB
Associated Press

Five things to watch for Michigan State :
1. SOFT SCHEDULE?: MSU beat Wisconsin in the regular season each of the last three years — then watched the Badgers play in the Rose Bowl each time. This year, Wisconsin isn’t on the Spartans’ schedule, and neither is Ohio State. On top of that, MSU gets to play Michigan at home. The Spartans had won four straight over the Wolverines before losing last year in Ann Arbor. 2. IS MAXWELL THE MAN?: Maxwell completed only 52.5 percent of his passes last season, but in fairness, he was working with an inexperienced receiving corps. Still, it was Cook who led the winning drive in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl . “The job’s open right now,” Maxwell said. “Every quarterback is fighting, clawing, scratching, trying to win the day every single day at practice” 3. BIG SHOES TO FILL: It would be unrealistic to expect any of Michigan State’s running backs to match Bell’s number of carries from a season ago. The question is whether, collectively, the Spartans can replace his production. Redshirt freshman Riley Bullough has been atop the depth chart at tailback. Michigan State could have three fifthyear seniors starting on the offensive line, which should help. 4. NEXT IN LINE: When Jerel Worthy left MSU early to go to the NFL, William Gholston was ready to anchor the defensive line. Now Gholston has turned pro, but the Spartans have proven they can reload on defense. Defensive end Marcus Rush could be ready to make a bigger impact. 5. GETTING THE BOUNCES: MSU beat Notre Dame in 2010 on a fake field goal , and the Spartans edged Wisconsin the following year on a ‘Hail Mary’ on the game’s final play. But last season, the Spartans lost five games by a combined 13 points. With a stingy defense and an offense still trying to find its footing, Michigan State could be on its way to another season full of close games. How the Spartans perform in them should go a long way toward determining if they can make a run at a league title.

EAST LANSING — For all Michigan State has accomplished under Mark Dantonio — the wins over Michigan, a share of the 2010 Big Ten title, a pair of thrilling finishes on national television that will be remembered for generations — there’s still one step that has eluded the Spartans. Michigan State hasn’t played in the Rose Bowl since 1988, and last season brought the Spartans no closer to that goal. They went 7-6, with almost every conference game coming down to the wire. If Michigan State can turn a few of those close losses into wins, a league title isn’t that farfetched, but there’s plenty of room for improvement, especially on offense. “We came into the last season with a very limited amount of experience on offense, at the quarterback position, at the wide receiver position,” said Dantonio, who is entering his seventh season as the Spartans’ coach. “We came in with an experienced defense and it showed. So we just need to pick all the pieces up, put them back in the puzzle, and move forward, and I think that’s what we’re doing.” Michigan State was among the favorites in the Big Ten at the beginning of last season, but a one-point loss to Ohio State and a double-overtime loss to Iowa knocked the Spartans off the pace early. They ended up barely making the postseason. With quarterback Andrew Maxwell struggling at times in his first season as the starter, it was left to workhorse running back Le’Veon Bell to carry the offense. He did, to the tune of 1,793 yards on 382 carries, but then Bell decided to leave school early for the NFL draft. In the Spartans’ bowl game, Maxwell split time at quarterback with Connor Cook, adding an element of uncertainty to that situation going forward.

Senior Andrew Maxwell will go into the season as the starter at MSU, but others will also get a shot at playing time.US

ROBINSON GONE, MICHIGAN TURNS TO GARDNER AT QB
Wolverines chasing Big Ten title
Associated Press

ANN ARBOR — Brady Hoke was about 10 minutes into a preseason news conference when the question was finally asked. It’s been a while since Michigan last won the Big Ten, and now Ohio State — that biggest of rivals — enters this season as the favorite. Does that leave the Wolverines with a little more to prove? “Our goal is to win the championship, and we haven’t done it,” Hoke said. “I think you’re always motivated when you talk about Ohio, no matter what’s being said, you’re motivated so that the last Saturday in November you play your best football.” And yes, Ohio would be Ohio State in Hoke’s parlance. Michigan may have recovered from its slide under Rich Rodriguez, but now the Buckeyes are upping the ante. They went undefeated last year, when they weren’t eligible for a bowl. Now, Ohio State is expected to win a Big Ten title, something the Wolverines haven’t done since 2004. Hoke took Michigan to the Sugar Bowl in his first year as the Wolverines’ coach, but the team slipped to an 8-5 mark last season, and there’s still work to be done in Ann Arbor. “This is Michigan,” quarterback Devin Gardner said. “We win Big Ten championships. We compete for national championships. That’s a big goal for us and we can’t wait to get the opportunity to do that.” Michigan must now move on without Denard Robinson, who was such a big part of the offense. Last year, Robinson was limited by elbow trouble, which allowed Gardner to get a jump on quarterbacking the Wolverines. Gardner started the final five games at quarterback last season, and he’ll take over full time in 2013. Michigan got some good news in January when offensive lineman Taylor Lewan, an All-American, decided to pass on the NFL and return for his senior season. The Wolverines will have to travel to play in-state rival Michigan State, but the games against Notre Dame (Sept. 7),

Five things to look for at Michigan:
1. REPLACING ROBINSON: Michigan’s one-of-a-kind quarterback threw for 49 touchdowns and ran for 42 in his career with the Wolverines. Now Michigan turns the reins over to Gardner. The Wolverines will probably look more conventional on offense with Gardner taking snaps. Gardner was 75 of 126 last season, for a completion percentage of nearly 60 percent. He averaged 9.7 yards per attempt, finishing with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. 2. CAN TOUSSAINT STAY HEALTHY?: Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for more than 1,000 yards two seasons ago, but he broke his left leg in November. He’s back now, and another big season from the 5foot-10 running back would go a long way toward boosting the Michigan running game. Derrick Green and De’Veon

Nebraska (Nov. 9) and Ohio State (Nov. 30) are all at home. If Michigan wins the Legends Division, a spot in the Big Ten title game will await — with the Buckeyes, of course, expected to be the opponent.

Smith, a pair of true freshmen, could also contribute out of the backfield. 3. WHEN CAN RYAN RETURN?: Another health-related item. Standout linebacker Jake Ryan went down in March with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He’s hoping to be back in October, and the Wolverines would certainly welcome that. 4. LEWAN’S LINEMATES: Michigan gave up a conference-low 15 sacks last season, but the Wolverines have only two returning starters on the offensive line — Lewan and Michael Schofield. Can the men up front protect Gardner and give the Michigan backs room to run? 5. HOKE AT HOME: In two seasons as Michigan’s coach, Hoke still hasn’t lost a home game. With so many of this year’s biggest games being played in Ann Arbor, simply keeping that streak alive may be enough for the Wolverines to ensure themselves a special season.

BRONCOS LOOKING TO ‘ROW THE BOAT’ UNDER FLECK

WESTERN MICHIGAN SCHEDULE
Aug. 30 at Michigan St., 8 p.m. Sep. 7 Nicholls St., 7 p.m. Sep. 14 at Northwestern, 9 p.m. Sep. 21 at Iowa, TBA Sep. 28 Kent St., 7 p.m. Oct. 5 at Toledo, 3 p.m. Oct. 12 Buffalo, 2 p.m. Oct. 19 Ball St., 2 p.m. Oct. 26 at UMass, 3 p.m. Nov. 9 at E. Michigan, 1 p.m. Nov. 16 Cent. Michigan, Noon Nov. 26 at N. Illinois, 7 p.m.

KALAMAZOO — When P.J. Fleck was introduced as the Western Michigan University football coach in December, he spoke of the Broncos need to “row the boat.” Fleck, who at 32 years old is the youngest head football coach in Division I football, brought the rallying cry to Kalamazoo with him in hopes of changing the culture of a WMU football program that hasn’t won a Mid-American Conference title since 1988. “It’s becoming a way of life around here,” Fleck said of his mantra. “There will always be naysayers that say, ‘What does a boat and an oar have to do with a Bronco? It doesn’t make sense. I think it’s stupid.’ That's fine… No matter what comes your way, all we’re going to is continue to row. No matter what hits this town, we’re going to continue this row. And we’re going to learn from our past. “We’re going to make sure our past doesn’t continue happen over and over so we keep saying, ‘It can’t be done... It can be done. And I won't sleep until it is done.” WMU is coming off a 4-8 campaign in 2012, so the school brought in the energetic Fleck to spark some life into the program. The Broncos open the season Friday in East Lansing against Michigan State University. Starting quarterback Tyler Van Tubbergen is tasked with guiding the Broncos in his senior season. The signal caller threw for 1,825 yards, 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 11 games last season, including six starts. “It’s amazing to me how close we’ve become, and how much we've been able to accomplish, not only on the field — which we've made a lot of progress there too — but even off the field in the meetings,” Van Tubbergen said. “Getting to know each other and who your teammates are. I think we’ve made tremendous progress.” Offensively, the Broncos took a big hit this offseason when sophomore wide receiver Jaime Wilson suffered a broken ankle. He caught 67 passes for 792 yards and six touchdowns on his way to MAC Freshman of the Year honors in 2012, and

could return late in the season if WMU doesn’t opt to redshirt him. Senior Josh Schaffer and sophomores Courtney Bynes, Timmy Keith and Kendrick Roberts will try to make up for the loss of Wilson. Schaffer is expected to lead the group after hauling in 43 receptions for 570 yards and three touchdowns in 2012. Fleck himself was a receiver at Northern Illinois and played in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers. Prior to arriving at WMU, he was the wide receivers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After playing in a pass-heavy offense under former head coach Bill Cubit, the Broncos are shifting to a more balanced playbook. Senior Dareyon Chance figures to get the starting nod in the Broncos’ running

back committee after falling 53 yards short of a 1,000-yard season as a junior. Fellow senior Brian Fields will likely share the load with Chance, while senior fullback Antoin Scriven will be used in short yardage or goal line situations. Broncos running backs will carry behind an offensive line without a returning regular starter. Sophomore tackle Willie Beavers, redshirt freshman tackle Taylor Morton, junior center Jon Hoffing, sophomore guard Jimmy Kristof, senior guard Greg Peterson and center Jon Hoffing are expected to make up WMU’s front five. On the other side of the ball, the Broncos are moving from a 3-3-5 scheme to a more traditional 4-3 base defense. Johnnie Simon returns as the team’s leading tackler after making 103 stops a year ago. But the 6-foot, 197-pound senior will

move down from his saftey-linebacker hybrid position to play outside linebacker. The Broncos will put an experienced secondary on the field, as junior Donald Celiscar and sophomore Ronald Zamort return at corner, while junior Justin Currie and senior Demetrius Pettway are back at safety. Celiscar had a team-high 14 pass breakups while adding two interceptions in 2012. Senior defensive tackle Travonte Boles anchors a young Broncos defensive line. The 5-foot-11, 290-pounder is back after collecting 3 1/2 sacks and 9 1/2 tackles for loss as a junior. According to Fleck, this offseason will go down as his most important as head coach as he and his staff implement a new system and style of coaching. “Our staff has worked very hard to make sure this program grows in the right direction. The blue print is there. The blue print is very clear to me,” Fleck said. “I always tell people, when we get there, I’m not sure how excited I'll be — because I knew it’d happen all along.” Fleck added that he’d like to turn WMU into a program that is not only recognized as an elite program in the MAC, but also as an elite program in the nation. “I could have waited to become a head coach and take over a program that was established,” Fleck said. “But that’s what I’ve always wanted and that’s what I’ve dreamed of — putting a fingerprint on these young men, so when they come back years from now, they’re proud of their program.”

BRITONS SET TO CONTEND IN MIAA

Albion College’s all-time leading running back, all-time leading receiver and the reigning Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Defensive MVP won’t be on the field for the Britons this season. But instead of signaling the end of the Briton’s MIAA title hopes, the departure of running back Clinton Orr, receiver Brian Spencer and defensive tackle C.J. Carroll seems to have opened the door for the next wave of players to try to lead Albion to an MIAA crown. “It’s going to be a different group in 2013. We’ve got some big holes to fill,” 17year Albion head coach Craig Rundle told gobrits.com. “I think we’ve got a lot of young talented players who are capable of filling the void.” The rest of the league seems to think the Britons are capable, as Albion was picked in a three-way tie as the No. 2 team in the conference in the MIAA pre-

season poll following a 6-4 campaign. Defending league champion Adrian — which held off Albion 20-19 in overtime to claim the conference title — was picked as the favorite. “I think this is a hungry group. We were disappointed last year coming up short in terms of winning the championship,” Rundle said. “We had a chance late in the season playing Adrian in the championship game, losing in overtime. I think guys saw we were pretty close to getting it done, but are frustrated because we didn’t. I think that’s been a real motivating factor in the offseason, to get back to win a championship game and not just play in one.”

Albion will open its season against Defiance on Sept. 7 under the lights at Sprankle-Sprandle Stadium at 6 p.m. Leading the offense will be senior running back Darrin Williams. He began his career at Cincinnati playing for Brian Kelly and Butch Jones. There in 2009, he appeared in all 13 games and returned a kick 19 yards in the All-State Sugar Bowl. After injuries sidetracked his career, Williams came to Albion on the advice of his former Detroit King High School teammate Chris Greenwood. Green-

wood played cornerback at Albion before being drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2012. Williams was an All-MIAA first team running back in 2012, rushing for 850 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games. As for who will be handing the ball off to Williams, the Britons have a two-man competition at quarterback between sophomores Dominic Bona and Chad Hamilton. Bona, who Rundle said ‘probably has a leg up,’ appeared in nine games last season, throwing for 866 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. On defense, the Britons will be led by senior inside linebacker Brett McCarty and senior cornerback Mike Vandermus. McCarty finished second in the league in tackles and sacks in 2012. Vandermus had four interceptions, broke up five passes and forced a fumble last year. “I think we got a lot accomplished since we started camp,” Rundle said. “Guys have great work ethic, we got great attitude from guys and really developed a lot of good senior leadership.”

COMETS ARE YOUNG, EXPERIENCED

Sept. 7: at Wilmington (Ohio), 1:30 p.m. Sept. 14: Wis.

Not many teams in Division III football can say they have 18 returning starters. Not many others can say that of 170 players in their program, 153 are freshmen or sophomores. That’s the case with Olivet College this season under second-year head coach Dan Pifer, as the Comets aim to end a 13-game winless streak. Olivet had lost four straight before Pifer took over in 2012, and with many freshmen on the field last season the Comets finished with an 0-9 record. “Last year was a learning experience playing 18 freshmen. Every day in practice and every game was something new to them,” Pifer said. “Now we’re going to use that experience to our advantage.” The Comets open their season at Wilmington (Ohio). The opener presents a good opportunity for Olivet to end their losing skid, as Wilmington finished 1-9 last season.

Bonivel

Armstrong

For Pifer, the key since coming in has been trying to change a culture for a program that has only won two games in the past five years. “The environment around here has completely changed. We put on 1,800 pounds of muscle as a team. We got bigger, we needed to being that young,” Pifer said. “Being more confident with a majority of these guys with a year under the belt, we felt we’ve made enough strides where it will start to show on the scoreboard.” The Comets compete in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association. In a preseason media poll, Olivet was picked to finish fifth in the seven-team league.

“I think the league is wide open,” Pifer said. “Anybody can win this thing this year. It’s as wide open as we’ve seen it. It’s anybody’s game. Who stays healthy, who can come in and catch a couple lucky breaks, and it’s anybody’s game.” The strength of the Comets is expected to be their defense. Junior lineman Ryan Armstrong, sophomore linebackers Ryheem Bonivel and Curtis French and sophomore defensive back Noah Keefer lead the unit after earning AllMIAA second-team honors a year ago.

Armstrong finished with a team-high 5 1/2 sacks last year, while Bonivel was the team ball-hawk with three forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and an interception. Sophomore defensive back Beau Langs (Climax-Scotts) also drew praise from Pifer after making a lot of plays as a freshman, including a teambest two interceptions. “D-line is our deepest position. It can really help keep us in games,” Pifer said. “We got some athletic corners who might be young... The secondary we think can be good. It’s the youngest group, but they’re athletic.” A battle at quarterback is taking place to determine who takes the first snap against Wilmington. Braden Black (Harper Creek), Brendon Smith and Chance Nightingale are vying for the job after each saw action under center as freshmen for the Comets a year ago. “There’s a lot of competition, we have a great freshmen class who are doing a great job pushing the older guys who have been here. I like where we’re at. We’re getting better.”
