They will get a head start to crowning the Class C-2, District 1 champion tonight in Adams when Freeman (3-1) and Wilber-Clatonia (3-1) square off in an important “second season” matchup.
Both teams enter district play in the top-10 in playoff points and in prime position to make the field of 16 at the end of the regular season. Each squad has had early success on defense — they have given up just 45 points in six combined wins — and share a common loss, to top-10 Sutton.
The Wolverines — state champions in 2016 — have done most of their damage on the ground. Senior Coltin Rezabek leads a ground attack that averages nearly 200 yards per game and four players have over 100 yards rushing so far. Rezabek also has eight catches for 103 yards.
Freeman, which just missed the playoffs last year after starting 5-0, is looking to make their first post season since 2014.
A win tonight will go a long way for both teams.
