D8 Final rematch set (Kalamazoo Gazette)
April 12, 2012
Big news on the football opening night front: Reigning Division 8 champion Mendon will face Fowler in a rematch of last season's Final at Ford Field.
Filling the schedule can be a tough task when a school has won 10 MHSAA championships, as the Hornets have accomplished. The Eagles frequently have been feared as well and own four MHSAA titles. The Kalamazoo Gazette's Scott Decamp gives us a rundown of how this rematch came together.
Mendon beat Fowler 33-0 in that championship game, but both teams are expected to return some of their biggest stars this fall.
