Reschke Sees Ann Arbor Again

Birmingham Brother Rice (Mich.) junior LB Jon Reschke on Michigan-Ohio State and winning a state title.

Birmingham Brother Rice was 4-4 at one point this season, thanks in part to a tough Catholic League schedule, but the Warriors snuck into the playoffs and then hit their stride, rattling off five straight wins, culminating with a state title game victory on Saturday.

For junior linebacker Jon Reschke, it was the moment he had been waiting for, and the 6'2, 220-lb leader of the Warrior defense could scarcely describe it.

"It feels amazing," he said. "It's one of the best feelings I've ever had him my life."

The day after that victory, he headed over to Ann Arbor and saw Michigan take on Ohio State, his third trip to the Big House this season, and the second with an exciting finish.

"It was a lot of fun in general. The atmosphere was great. It was just as great as the Notre Dame game, I felt like."

Reschke holds offers from Michigan State and Toledo currently, and he says the Wolverines want to speak with him further in the near future.

"I talked to Coach Smith. I'm going to come up there on the third week of December and sit down with him and Coach Hoke probably and we're going to talk, so it's good."

As for more visits, Reschke says, "Maybe another Big Ten school like Purdue or Indiana hopefully."

The visits will have to fit into his schedule though, because the season finishing and his championship does not mean he is going to rest.

"I'm playing hockey for my school, so I'm going to play hockey and work out. Working out and football comes first. I'm going to maybe do some All-American camps like Under Armour or Army."
