Beaverton’s Seiser Honored by Detroit Lions
The 10th-ranked team in Division 7, Beaverton (7-0) ended a 29-game losing streak to Clare last Friday with a 20-0 victory, securing its first outright Jack Pine Conference championship since 1989 in the process.

Seiser also spent three seasons as head coach at Houghton Lake and two seasons at Gladwin. He has a career record of 73-49.
