Look out for Ferndale

Before last season, the best thing Ferndale basketball was known for was having some legendary teams in the 1960's and having the Ernie Harwell of public address announcers, the one and only Joe Mahan.
But the Eagles had a tremendous turnaround last season under first-year head coach Tom Staton, and things could be even better this year.
Ferndale opened up its season with an overtime win over Waterford Mott on Tuesday, in the process showcasing why it will be a team to be reckoned with.
The Eagles are in the OAA White, but if they were in the league's top division, the OAA Red, they could give teams like Southfield, Clarkston and Pontiac some trouble.
Ferndale plays an aggressive, up-tempo system that presses opponents defensively and lights up the scoreboard on offense.
The scary part is that it'll get even better for Ferndale come January when one of the county's best player, Joe Baker, becomes eligible via a transfer.
There are a lot of traditional powers that will be good this year in the county. But look for Ferndale to continue its rapid ascent and join the area's elite.
— Look in Friday's issue of the Oakland Press and Thursday night on for Kosmo's first basketball column of the season. He's been on a brief hiatus since football season, but will shine the Krystal ball once again.
