ROYAL OAK — It’s a fact the Royal Oak High football team doesn’t shy away from.

In the last nine seasons, four of them were winless.

But the Ravens believe that this year could make all of those hard times a distant memory.

      “I’m having the most fun I’ve ever had playing football in my entire life,” senior Brendan Beerer said. “I’ve been a part of a lot of different teams, but this one is special. We have a chance to change what Royal Oak football is all about.”

TROY — There’s a self-belief that permeates from the Troy Athens locker room to the football field.

“It’s a quiet confidence that I love,” coach Josh Heppner said. “They understand that they’re the underdogs, that they’re always going to be the underdogs. They understand that there won’t be people that actually know how hard they work … but they believe in each other and they take care of each other.”

BERKLEY — First, the good news is that despite some miscues, the Berkley High football team is still sitting atop the Oakland Activities Association Blue Division. 


The Bears have won three straight games and are 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the division.


The bad news is that the Bears have a propensity of putting the ball on the ground too many times for coach Chris Sikora’s liking.


The coach said his team has fumbled multiple times per game, but that he’s fully confident those numbers are going to improve.

HAZEL PARK — The expectations have changed.

A year ago at this time, the Hazel Park High boys tennis program was in its infancy, just getting a restart after a dormant four years.

“Last year was kind of getting the hang of things, learning how to swing a racket,” returning junior Ryan Drew said. “This year is learning how to place the ball and get a solid serve in. There’s a lot more skill involved rather than just basics.”
