Northern Michigan’s Best Close Out Prep Careers

UNIVERSITY CENTER – The 34th edition of the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association All-Star game will kick off Saturday at Saginaw Valley State University, and with that comes the conclusion of eight northern Michigan prep careers.

Before embarking on a collegiate career at Central Michigan in the fall, Mt. Pleasant’s Hunter Buczkowski is looking forward to suiting up for the West squad and facing some of the state’s best.

"There’s a lot of future college athletes here, you know it’s a lot different than the normal season,” Buczkowski said. “Everyone’s the best from their communities, all going to colleges, all-state and stuff like that. So it’s definitely going to give me a nice little edge going into the fall"

"All these people, half of them, or most of them are going to be playing college football,” added Traverse City St. Francis’ Dru McFadden. “You should be prepared for any test you’ll be taking on next year."

Buczkowski and McFadden will be joined on the West squad by Gage Kreski (St. Ignace), Hayden Niepoth (Bellaire), Luke Sage (Boyne City), Caleb Wisniski (Onekama) and Cameron Wright (Grant).

Kickoff Saturday is set for 1 p.m.
