While it may be way too early to tell, the Fighting Irish just might be the favorite to win the state title in division 4 in 2013. With juniors Jermaih Johnson and Brenden Newvine leading the way next year while receivers like Anthony Gunn and defensive tackle Alex Stuart, the Irish will have one of the most complete teams in the state next year.
Many (Myself included) believed that this would be a bit of a down year for the Wildcats after losing several key seniors from last year's team, but behind sophomore quarterback Glacier Wallington, Oxford was once again a strong team in 2012. Expect that to once again be the case in 2013 with Wallington and junior running back Ben Line leading the way for Bud Rowley's squad.
It seems like it really doesn't matter who the Blue Jays lose each year or how many, but they're always going to be just as strong each year. Look for names like Jordan Cry and Lawrence Marshall to help lead what should be a dominant Southfield defense in 2013 that could lead the Blue Jays to a long playoff run.
