At face value, the Detroit Cass Tech-Detroit King matchup did not look like a battle between two teams that will still be playing Thanksgiving weekend.
There were too many penalties – host Cass had 13 and King eight – too many dropped passes, too many missed assignments to think that Cass Tech, No. 1 in Division 1, will compete for the D-1 title, and King, No. 2 in Division 2, can repeat as D-2 champs.
Cass Tech coach Thomas Wilcher was happy to concede that his team’s 31-18 victory Saturday afternoon was not worthy of a spot in a time capsule.
