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

Not a good start at Harrison

Yesterday was one of the most anticipated days on the high school sports calendar with the first official day of high school football practice. Yes, teams have been conducting camps and scrimmages all summer, but there's still something special about the first official day.
Unfortunately, the excitement didn't seem to be felt by a couple of the state's best players. Kosmo has heard through the grapevine that two of the "Big Three" players at Farmington Hills Harrison, Devin Funchess and Aaron Burbridge, showed up late for the first day of practice on Monday.
Kosmo rarely calls out kids, but this is an exception because Funchess and Burbridge are two big-time recruits who will be playing Division I college football next year.
Funchess is going to Michigan and Burbridge to Michigan State, so talents like these two are held to a loftier standard, especially since they're now senior leaders.
To be fair, there might be a legitimate excuse that Kosmo doesn't know about. If that's the case, then disregard this words and accept an apology from Kosmo.
But still, this is not the way to open up a season and a state title defense to have two senior leaders showing up late to the first day of practice.
That's never a good sign to have two of your best players and leaders do that.
Hopefully the two learned their lesson and make up for it, because their one chance to make an impression on the first day of practice is gone.
