Four West Michigan Schools Advance To Football State Finals [Video]
West Michigan schools' successful run through the Michigan High School Football Playoffs continued in the semifinals over the weekend.
West Michigan will have representatives in four of eight state championship games over Thanksgiving weekend!
The fact that West Michigan has so many representatives in the finals is even more impressive when you consider that four West Michigan schools were knocked out of the playoffs over the weekend.
Caledonia, Comstock Park, Muskegon Catholic Central, and Rockford all had their impressive seasons come to an end over the weekend.
See recaps of semifinal games of the four teams that will advance:
- West Catholic's last minute victory.
- Muskegon's win over Caledonia.
- Grand Rapids Christian scores 52 and moves on to the finals.
- South Christian beats Comstock Park at Houseman Field.
