The varsity football team won its first playoff game last Friday night 41-7 over Sterling Heights.

The team got off to an early start, scoring on its first possession of the football. Logan Mico ’17 threw three touchdown passes, two caught by captain Andrew Trost ’16 and another to David Burnett ’16, putting the team at a 24-0 lead after the first half.

In the second half, the Blue Devils looked to their running backs. Sam Genna ’16 and Aiden Comes ’17 both scored a running touchdown to secure the win. Sterling Heights’ only touchdown came after a South turnover on their own 1-yard line which set the opponent up for a short touchdown run.  

Kicker Cameron Shook ’18 made two field goals on the day.

“We knew we had to beat this team. We knew we were the better team, and we knew we deserved to win,” Will Poplawski ’16 said. “Our defense was hardly out on the field our offense played so well, which is good to see.”

The team headed back home this Friday night to play East English Village. Poplawski sees the game as a challenge but knows they can handle it.

“Obviously they are a good team. They just beat last year’s state champions. But any team that makes it this far into the playoffs is a good team. It just depends on who plays the best on a given night,” Poplawski said.

As important as this game is in the playoffs, Coach Tim Brandon said he is treating it like every other game they’ve played this season.

“Our team is going to continue doing the same daily, weekly routine because this game is no different than the others,” Brandon said. “This is a very special group of young men. With hard work and a few breaks there is no limit to how far they can go.”
