On a day where the East squad came into the 27th Annual Michigan High School All-Star Football game a heavy favorite, the West rallied to pull out a 9-7 victory.
Future Central Michigan TE Rocky Weaver caught a TD pass from Johnny Benjamin (headed to Northwood) late in the 4th quarter to put the West ahead.

Michigan bound CB James Rogers.
Future Wisconsin Badger James Stallons had a solid day passing the ball.
Stallons chats with his go-to receivers, future Michigan Wolverine Martell Webb and Mark Dell, a Spartan to-be playing in his home stadium.
Dell had an outstanding day, making several tough grabs in traffic, including this one over Lowell's Mike McElroy, off to Southern Illinois. McElroy would make up for this completion though, breaking up two passes in the 4th quarter to help preserve the victory.
Whitehall's Ryan Van Bergen, off to Michigan and Adrian's Brad Ohrman, headed to Eastern Michigan, spent a lot of time in the East backfield.
Benjamin had a nice game and Northwood fans should be very happy with this pickup.
Flint Carman-Ainsworth DT Ryan Wheat was one of the most physical players on the field. He got to get a taste of playing in Spartan Stadium, something he will do a lot of the next four years as a member of the MSU football team.
Rockford CB Callan Sherd gets tripped up. Sherd had a nice day at defensive back and looks like he will see the field right away at Northwood.
Detroit Cass Tech LB/S Zach Easterley had a fine game. The 6'3, 200-lber is staying close to home and playing for Wayne State.
Detroit Crockett DT Michael Booker was tough to block in the middle today. He was one of many All-Stars headed to the GLIAC conference, as he will be a Saginaw Valley State Cardinal.
Toledo Rocket fans should be happy to have Kaunda Hancock. The Birmingham Brother Rice safety was all over the field today making tackle after tackle.
