Teams on the rise

After this week, the high school football regular season will be more than halfway over, so now would be a good time to look into the teams more on an upswing than Kosmo thought at the start of the season.

- Rochester Adams. Yes, it's hard to classify a traditional power as a team on the upswing, but the K-Man thought the Highlanders were vulnerable going into this season. Well, Kosmo should not have underestimated Tony Patritto and his staff. Adams is off to a 4-0 start, and even though one of those wins came via a Clarkston forfeit after the Wolves beat Adams to start the year, Adams had a big win last week against Oak Park. The Highlanders can really show they're for real with a win at Southfield on Saturday.
- Pontiac Notre Dame Prep. The Fighting Irish actually are on an eight-game winning streak, which is pretty incredible. Notre Dame Prep won its last four games of the season last year after starting 0-5 and is off to an impressive 4-0 start this season. Not only are the Fighting Irish winning, but they're winning handily.
- Farmington. So this was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Falcons, right? Nobody told that to head coach John Bechtel and his group, because Farmington is 3-1 despite having been hit hard by graduation losses. Even better for the Falcons is that they are a junior-dominated team that should be a definite team to watch next year.
- Holly. Look for the Bronchos to be in the playoffs once again this year. After an 0-2 start, Holly has beaten Linden and Flint Metro power Fenton and look to be on track to get to the postseason again.
