The Pirates rode then-junior running back Jared Smith all the way to Ford Field. Smith had one of the greatest seasons in the history of Michigan high school football, rushing for 3,250 yards and 53 touchdowns, both MHSAA season records. And his 364 points scored in 2015 are second all-time in a season.
Smith returns, as well as both quarterbacks. But the schedule is tough early with state power Monroe St. Mary CC visiting in week 1. At Laingsburg and at Fowler will be no picnic, either.
9-0 is a real possibility for the Pirates. A key will be what the offense does other than Jared Smith. The playoffs are a near-certainty, how far they go after that is up for debate.
