2017 Utica Eisenhower 11-1, State Quarter-finalist

2007 Patriots, 1992-93 U of M basketball, 1995-96 Red Wings. You may be asking yourself what these teams have to do with high school football. Much like our #6 team, they will be remembered as some of the best to never win it all. Coming off a last second semifinal loss to Cass Tech the year prior, the 2017 Eagles were a team on a mission and well on their way to another deep postseason run. Unfortunately, a late season injury to Senior QB Max Wittwer would leave Eisenhower scrambling to ready it’s backup for a playoff run. A 52-0 drubbing of Utica and 10-6 nailbiting win over Rochester Adams set up a matchup with West Bloomfield. The Lakers would prove to be too much ending the Eagles postseason run. The injury to Wittwer will always leave this writer wondering what could have been.
