Detroit Cass Tech was anxious to get back on the field last Friday against cross-city rival Detroit Cody. The Technicians carried with them the frustrations stemming from a disappointing season opening loss to Orchard Lake St Mary’s. When the dust settled, Boubacar Cissoko and company had dominated the Comets on the defensive side of the ball to earn their first victory of the year.
“It went really good,” Cissoko said regarding his squad’s first winning effort. “We won 6-0. I got a little more rest this game. I didn’t play as much on offense. I had four solo tackles, two for loss, and an interception.”
After getting a good night’s rest, Cissoko hit the road early the next morning to see his future team in action in Ann Arbor. The shocking finish to Michigan’s season opener versus Appalachian State has made the five-star corner the subject of some ribbing from his peers. Still, he is undeterred in his allegiance to the Maize & Blue and believes that the Wolverines will rebound just as his current team has.
“They can bounce back,” Cissoko said of Michigan. “It’s Michigan! It’s like a few years ago when they went 7-5. They came back last year and went 11-2 and went to a (BCS) bowl game. They can bounce back. That’s all I’ve got say.”
Cissoko plans to be in Ann Arbor again this weekend for what he hopes is Michigan’s bounce back effort versus Oregon. In the very near future he also plans to trip to another campus to take in a game, but he insists that should be of no concern to Wolverine fans.
“Fred Smith has been calling me and stuff trying to kick it,” Cissoko said regarding the Michigan State commitment. “He told me that we need to kick it sometime. He called me and told me he was going to Michigan State for a game and asked me if I wanted to roll. I was like yeah.”
“I called Coach Campbell (Michigan's WR coach and Detroit recruiter) and I told him about it,” Cissoko continued.
“He said he just wanted to make sure I wasn’t doing nothing different.
It ain’t nothing to it. It’s all good. I’m going to go to
the game when they play Michigan. This is all business man. Everyone knows where
I want to go. Everyone knows I want to go to Michigan. I’ve been saying
that since forever.”
