Donnie Corley’s game-winning catch for Detroit Martin Luther King against Lowell in the MHSAA Division 2 Football Finals last year will cap off a string of 30 Plays in 30 Days on the NFHS Network this week.
The 40-yard reception from Armani Posey in the corner of the end zone as time expired gave the Crusaders a 40-38 win over the Red Arrows, capping a 6-play, 95-yard drive over the final 37 seconds of the game. The clip will be available on the NFHS Network website on Thursday.
Seven more MHSAA schools made NFHS Network news this week, as their School Broadcast Programs were honored by the network. Calumet, Haslett and Montrose were among 41 schools to be ranked as Elite Schools in the program for 2015-16, and Comstock Park, Davison, Lake Orion and Mancelona were among 89 honored as Select Schools.
Select Schools were chosen for demonstrating excellent broadcasting skills, and Elite Schools not only displayed excellent broadcasting skills but also excelled in promoting their events and generating funds for their schools. Calumet was honored as an Elite School for the second straight year, while Haslett and Montrose were Select Schools in 2015-16.
