Once again the Macomb Area Conference held a successful Media Day at Chippewa Valley High H.S.
Lamphere AD Russ Mckenzie once again did a fabulous job coordinating the event.
Most coaches agreed depth and avoiding major injuries are critical.
Clawson head coach Jim Sparks said” with a school our size staying healthy is Important”.
2018 promises to have a lot of balance throughout the conference and most agreed the Silver and Gold Divisions are probably the most balanced from top to bottom and that the Red Division will once again be one of the toughest in the state.
The coaches also find media day a chance to joke. Fitzgerald head coach Gary Skop jokingly said “not only is the Gold Division brutal, none of the coaches including me are good looking,the teams might be good,but the coaches are ugly” East Pointe coach Roland Bell concurred, but added I might be the best looking and that’s not saying much.” said a laughing Bell.
Anchor Bay and Lamphere will have new turf fields. A.B. head coach Mike Powell said ” we can’t wait to get on the new field” and Lamphere Rams head coach Jeff Glynn said “we are coming off a good season and we expect to be even better and playing on a new turf adds to the excitement”.
The balanced MAC realigned for the upcoming season and from the MAC Red to the Bronze it spells competitive.
2018 football camps open on Monday, August 6th and if media day is any indication the teams are ready to go and are full of optimism.
