Fracassa trying to achieve a first

Sometimes you learn something new every day, and Kosmo learned something new when he was reading the fine Oakland Press high school football season preview section in his cave on Sunday. It's no surprise that Birmingham Brother Rice will be one of the top teams in the state again and is ranked No. 1 in Oakland County to start the season. But it was a surprise to read that despite all he's accomplished in his legendary coaching career, head coach Al Fracassa has never won back-to-back state championships. Brother Rice has been to consecutive state title games in Fracassa's tenure, but never repeated. Wow. That's something Kosmo didn't know and hope that others have picked up on. For certain, that'll give even more motivation to a Brother Rice team full of talent. If this is indeed Fracassa's last year (yes Kosmo can hear the old bit siren sounding off now), then this would be the perfect way to go out on top by repeating for the first time. - Also looking at the list of top teams, it looks like more of the same. When haven't Brother Rice, Catholic Central, St. Mary's, Clarkston, Harrison, Lake Orion, Adams, Southfield, Walled Lake Central and Walled Lake Western been highly regarded teams going into a season? Evidently, it's just really hard for a different program to break through and become a consistent power each year in football.
