High school sports quick hits from Kosmo the all-knowing Oakland Press seer.

A historic event in Lake Orion hopefully will be just that

It's getting near mid-July, and so that means the nearly three-decade countdown is almost over for the football programs at Lake Orion and Oxford.
The Dragons and Wildcats haven't met on the gridiron since the 1980's, but they'll finally meet again on Aug. 27 at Lake Orion.
The two border towns quit playing each other largely because of vandalism and other issues that occurred back in the day.
Without question, it's been a date circled on the calendar for many in those two towns since they announced last year they will play.
The move was made possible since Oxford is leaving the Flint Metro and joining the OAA starting with the 2010-11 school year.
Both towns might be empty and at that football game, and rightfully so. The only thing Kosmo hopes is that the game matches the hype of the event.
The K-Man has his worries that'll be the case.
Lake Orion is an annual state powerhouse in Division 1 and within the OAA, while Oxford has been an average-to-pretty good team in a weaker Flint Metro conference.
The Wildcats have one of the state's legendary coaches in Bud Rowley, so hopefully that'll help in making the game itself a spectacular one and actually match the hype of the event itself.
