Expect the unexpected in first round

With the state football playoffs about to commence, Kosmo knows for a fact that coaches around the area and state have been pouring over game film the entire week for hours on end.
They'll likely know their opponents like they know the color of the logo on their hats as a result.
But the clever coaches, the ones who usually have the most success this time of year, will have a few tricks up their sleeve.
Mainly, look for players that have done virtually nothing during the regular season to play prominent roles in the playoffs.
They're the type of players that haven't been seen on film, and thus why coaches want to trot them from out of nowhere.
Opponents haven't seen them in scouting reports and thus aren't expecting them, so it's a brilliant strategy.
That's why as you're reading box scores on Saturday morning and wondering "Who?" when looking at recaps of games, Kosmo is telling you not to be too surprised.
It's why coaches who win are such geniuses.
— Wednesday turned out to be a bleak day for boys soccer teams in Oakland County. Three teams that won state titles the last two years and had good chances to win it all again, Auburn Hills Oakland Christian, Birmingham Brother Rice and Birmingham Detroit Country Day, all were eliminated.
That leaves only three teams left now, Troy, Southfield Christian and Bloomfield Hills Lahser.
