Saline who is #9 ranked in the state and #6 in Division 1 will welcome Kalamazoo Central who will be making their first playoff appearance since 2004. KC's biggest strength under first year head coach Carlton Brewster has been their defense which is one of their best in school history. The 135 points they've allowed are the fewest in the past 38 seasons. Saline on the other hand under Joe Palka has established a strong program that is looking to get back to Ford Field and they are the favorite on the west side of the bracket to advance to Ford Field.

Below are the prospects we're aware of entering the game. We look forward to discovering more talent.


2019 CB/WR MJ Griffin is the #55 ranked prospect in the state as he's headed to Temple. Griffin is an excellent; physical, fast, and aggressive player who is always playing with great effort. Griffin is the type of player who can make a game-changing play in a clutch moment.
