By Steve Widzinski, 01/15/14, 12:00PM EST



Division 1
#1 Davison (1)
#2 Detroit CC (2)
#3 Hartland (3)
#4 Temperance Bedford (4)
#5 Macomb Dakota (5)
#6 Brighton (6)
#7 Holt (7)
#8 Oxford (8)
#9 Grand Rapids FHC (9)
#10 Grandville (10)

Notes – Status Quo


Division 2
#1 Lowell (1)
#2 St. Johns (2)
#3 Niles (3)
#4 Tecumseh (7)
#5 Ortonville Brandon (9)
#6 Bay City Western (4)
#7 Gaylord (5)
#8 Greenville (6)
#9 Clio (8)
#10 Byron Center (10)


#5 Ortonville Brandon proves they are for real, winning by 25 against Clio on Wednesday, and then winning a rather lopsided dual over Westland John Glenn on Saturday just hours after Glenn had beaten Bay City Western.

#8 Greenville misses out on an opportunity to boost their ranking due to a loss at the hands of Grand Ledge last weekend, who then fell to Gaylord at the same event.

#2 Richmond (1)
#3 Allegan (3)
#4 Grand Rapids CC (4)
#5 Swan Valley (5)
#6 Birch Run (6)
#7 Manchester (7)
#8 Remus Chippewa Hills (8)
#9 Lake Fenton (9)
#10 Allendale


#1 Dundee takes over the top spot after their dramatic win over D1 #1 Davison, a team Richmond lost to in December.


Division 4
#1 Hudson (1)
#2 New Lothrop (2)
#3 Carson City Crystal (3)
#4 Hesperia (4)
#5 Lawton (5)
#6 Schoolcraft (6)
#7 Sand Creek (10)
#8 Addison (8)
#9 Decatur (9)
#10 St. Louis (NR)

Formerly Ranked
Blanchard Montabella (10)



#7 Sand Creek surges up after beating #8 Addison along with 2X defending D2 regional champion Mason at Saturday’s Addison Duals.

#10 St. Louis debuts after finishing ahead of former #7 Montabella at an individual tourney and then beating them in dual meet action in consecutive weeknds.

Letter from Hall of Fame Football Coach Noel Dean to EMU Football Coach Chris Creighton

Chris ,


I have to do what is right for the state of Michigan. As you know, I have coached high school football in the state of Michigan for the past 27 years. I have great respect for you as a coach and a person. You are just under the wrong leadership at the wrong time.


EMU's Athletic Director Scott Wetherbee  giving kudos 2 days before giving the program the axe

EMU's Athletic director Scott Wetherbee giving kudos to the team 2 days before giving them the axe. What kind of person does that?


Your president, a guy from South Dakota obviously doesn't understand the culture of Michigan and the value us lifelong Michigan residents not only have for the sport of football but wrestling too.


He doesn't understand how deeply intertwined football and wrestling is in this state. Many coaches are involved in both and have sons, nephews and grand kids that participate in both.


My biggest impact players have been both football players that are wrestlers. I am always and also told to have multi athletic players. This is in stark contrast to HIS position.


I can't stand by and not take a stand against what is happening at EMU with the wrestling program. Wrestling contributes too much to the fabric of our schools systems in Michigan (a guy from South Dakota might not get it), but if I stick to the facts on this. wrestling is only a bone to keep people happy FOR NOW. They are coming for you next.


If this goes through, you and your staff will not be allowed in any one of our buildings. I won't speak for the others copied in this email but I wanted them to see my position.


Bottom line is, a guy from South Dakota is dumping on boys in the state of Michigan. I personally have had enough of people like this. Time to get priorities in order.


You are a good man but, you may be at the wrong institution.


Noel Dean
