Raiders Win City Championship, Top Falcons 13-9

After winning just 5 games in the past 3 season, North Farmington is 8-0 this year.

The North Farmington Raiders came into week 8 ready for their cross-town rivals, the undefeated Farmington Falcons. But their was one significant thing that made this years game different…It was the first game between the two since Harrison High School closed. Which meant that most players from Harrison had moved to either North or Farmington. Harrison, who was one of the best Football High Schools out of Michigan, had coach John Herrington, which is viewed as one of the best coaches ever to coach High School in the state of Michigan. He went to continue his legacy with the Raiders as an assistant coach.
