Harbor Springs Looks to Build off Historic 2018
HARBOR SPRINGS – Harbor Springs kicked off its 2019 practice slate on Monday with the goal of building off one of its best seasons in two decades.
The Rams won seven games last fall for the first time since going 8-2 in 1999 and finished runner-up to Johannesburg-Lewiston for the Northern Michigan Football League Legacy championship.
Harbor Springs, which has reached the playoffs three of the last four years, opens its season on the road at league foe East Jordan on Thursday, Aug. 29.
“To start with a conference game is a little difficult,” Harbor Springs coach Rob Walker said. “We would prefer to have a non-conference game to start but this is who we have on the schedule and we’ll play them one at a time. We have a Canadian team we’re hosting on a Saturday and that’s going to be an interesting contest midseason.”
The Rams were able to fill an open week in Week 6 with Canadian opponent Sault Ste. Marie Korah Collegiate.
“We were so excited, just someone different,” Harbor Springs senior David Harrell said. “It’ll be fun. We have no idea if they’re good or not. We’ll just have to go into it acting like they’re the best.”
