It’s Week 5 of the Michigan high school football season, and all season long you can watch select MHSAA games live on Freep.com.
Today’s matchup: Detroit King vs. Detroit Cass Tech, in the Detroit Public School League Division 1/2 championship at Detroit Northwestern.
Alex Johnson (play-by-play) and Aaron Johnson (color commentary) will be on the call, which begins promptly when the game kicks off noon.
DETROIT KING (3-1): King has outscored opponents 114-7 since falling to Cass Tech, 34-26, to open the season. The Crusaders have split the past eight games in the series against the Technicians, and have the talent for a bounce-back victory. Defensive backs Jaylen Reed (Penn State commit) and Rishad Hence (Akron) will be counted on to slow down Kobe King, who torched King in the first matchup.
DETROIT CASS TECH (4-0): The Technicians hardly have been tested since their win over King in the season opener, in which Kobe King had touchdown receptions of 75, 41, and 54 yards. Cass Tech is the No. 3 team in the state and can show it is ready to compete for the Division 1 title by knocking off its biggest rival for the second time in five weeks.
