Distractions or not, Detroit Cass Tech is still 4-0
DETROIT - Let's be honest, Cass Tech has been distracted. With all of the troubling news surrounding former quarterback, Jayru Campbell, it's almost remotely impossible for his teammates, classmates, and coaches not to think about him.

"Games like these aren't really fun, but we still have to come and play to the best of our abilities," Peoples-Jones said of the win over Frederick Douglass. "But that East English game will be different. They are a little better, but we will be ready."
