Great rivalries renewed

This should no doubt be an exciting Week 8 of the prep football season in general, but there are two games in particular that Kosmo can't wait for, mainly because they are renewal of rivalries.
At the start of the season, Kosmo felt sad for the people in Rochester that Rochester and Rochester Adams weren't scheduled to play each other this year for the first time in decades because they were in separate divisions within the OAA.
But thanks to the fact Rochester is off to its best start in 17 years and Adams is its usually solid-self, the Highlanders and Falcons were paired against each other for this week's OAA Red-White crossover (the first place teams in each league play each other and so forth down the line).
Rochester hasn't beaten Adams since 1997, but this without question represents the best chance for the Falcons.
It's an event the Rochester community deserves, and Kosmo is glad it's happening at Adams on Friday.
The other rivalry renewed that Kosmo is excited about will be on Saturday when Lake Orion travels to Farmington Hills Harrison.
These two had some fantastic games during the last decade before being split up into separate divisions three years ago.
The casualty of the separation was the fact Harrison and Lake Orion had to come off of each other's schedules, which makes this matchup all the better.
It's the first meeting since 2006, and it should be one of the state's best games this week with a pair of 6-0 powerhouses going at it.
- Looks like Kosmo wrote of Birmingham Brother Rice way too soon. The K-Man didn't think the Warriors would win one of its two games against Orchard Lake St. Mary's and Novi Detroit Catholic Central, let alone both. But the Warriors did, and now the playoffs are a realistic possibility. Brother Rice is 4-3 and has a tough game at Indianapolis Cathedral on Saturday before facing Catholic Central or St. Mary's in the Prep Bowl the following week. Brother Rice needs to win both to automatically qualify, but winning one might be good enough to get Brother Rice in as a 5-4 team. The win over Catholic Central sure was playoff-points gold.
