3 Stars for regional finals

Two down and four more left. That is what the prep football scene in Oakland County is like now going into the state semifinals. Birmingham Brother Rice, Novi Detroit Catholic Central, Orchard Lake St. Mary's and Walled Lake Western are still alive and are one win away from going to Ford Field.
But while Kosmo is excited about the state semifinals, he offers his 3 stars of the regional round.

Third star
Jason Gamble, Walled Lake Western
What a week it was for the Warriors senior. On Thursday, he had a signing ceremony to officially declare that he'll be playing baseball at Central Michigan. Then a day later on the football field, Gamble was dominant along the defensive line, registering two sacks, a forced fumble and blowing up numerous other running plays for Port Huron.

Second star
Devin Church, Birmingham Brother Rice
Following an outstanding game against Farmington Hills Harrison the week before, Church was at it again in a 16-6 win over Southfield, rushing for 154 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. Now, he and the Warriors will gear up to face one of the state's best in the semifinals, Dennis Norfleet of Detroit Martin Luther King.

First star
Zac Leimbach, Walled Lake Central
Even though the Vikings lost to Utica Eisenhower handily, this is more in tribute to the season Leimbach had. Seeing your father die of cancer before the season has to be a lot for anyone to handle, but the terrific season Leimbach had is a tribute to his character and ability. He's definitely a role model for adults and children a like with the way he's handled a horrible situation.
