2015 Record: (6-4, Overall). Lost to Battle Creek St. Philip 55-18 in 1st round of 8-Man Playoffs.
Week 1 vs. Covert
Week 2 @ St. Joseph Michigan Lutheran
Week 3 vs. Waldron
Week 4 @ Tekonsha
Week 5 vs. Burr Oak
Week 6 @ Litchfield
Week 7 vs. Webberville
Week 8 @ Battle Creek St. Philip
Week 9 vs. Morrice
The Shamrocks have made the adjustment to eight-man football after struggling to field a full team in their final years as an 11-man school. 10th year head coach Pat Russman has 23 players on this year's roster.
St. Pats has their area opponents (Morrice and Webberville) at home. If they take both of those games, another playoff berth should happen. However, Battle Creek St. Philip is the main obstacle for the Shamrocks from a deep playoff run. In addition to a Week 8 clash on the road, St. Philip is a likely playoff opponent in November.
