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

Big questions/thoughts heading into start of camp

It's the first Monday of August, so that means it's time for Kosmo to wake out of his summer slumber. Yes, your seer posted some stuff to his blog, but not as much as he'd like without any high school sports going on. That'll change this week with the start of practice for fall teams, especially football on Monday. In light of football teams opening up practice, here are three big questions on your seer's mind. Who will be the sleeper team/program that'll emerge this year? Usually there is one every year, and Kosmo can't wait to see who it will be this year. Last year it was Pontiac Notre Dame Prep, which started off 10-0 for the first time school history before losing in the playoffs to state power Marine City. Holly has made the playoffs two straight years for the first time in school history and they could be a new force each year as well. The K-Man knows which teams will be great every year. He just wants to know you will be good that usually isn't good. What team has the better chance of defending a state title, Brother Rice or St. Mary's? Talent-wise, it's definitely Brother Rice. The Warriors return many key pieces from last year's team that won the Division 2 state title, most notably linebackers Jon Reschke and Sergio Perkovic and running back Brian Walker. However, Kosmo will go with St. Mary's as a likelier bet because there's more competition in Division 2 than Division 3. Each year you can almost pencil St. Mary's into the D3 title game already since they have enough talent to win Division 1 and 2 each year. Will the Waterford schools get back on track? Kosmo sure hopes so. It's been a horrible stretch for both Waterford Mott and Waterford Kettering in recent years, with each winning just one game over the last two years, and that was against each other. Both have new coaches (Mott has former Seaholm coach Chris Fahr and Kettering Kyle Schultz), so hopefully that new energy pays dividends and gets these programs back on track.
