It’s the final week of regular season play in high school football and we have two games for you on the Patriot! First, Friday takes us to Wayne State as the De La Salle Pilots host the West Bloomfield Lakers. Then Saturday we head to Eastern Michigan for the Prep Bowl Championship as the Shamrocks of Catholic Central face the Eaglets of Orchard Lake Saint Mary’s for the Bishop Division Title.
De La Salle (5-3) needs a win to secure a MHSAA playoff berth while West Bloomfield (7-1) checks in with their only loss coming against Birmingham Groves. The Pilots are also looking to keep their state championship streak alive in Division 2 having won back-to-back years.
Catholic Central (4-4) and Orchard Lake (7-1) is a rematch from week 7 that saw the Shamrocks pull off an impressive 20-14 comeback victory. CC needs a win for a shot at the state playoffs. The Eaglets have already qualified for states for the first time since 2016.
Jeremy Otto and Chad Bush have the call of both contests. Pre-game coverage kicks off at 6:30 PM on Friday and 4:30 PM on Saturday. Be sure to stay tuned after the games for the CHSL Drive Home Show. Brendan Johnson and Atif Lodhi will take a comprehensive look at games around the Catholic League and the state.
