"Brother Rice is obviously one of the best teams in the state and they always have been" Rockford junior defender Cole Scheffler said. "We've been scouting them a lot, hoping to be very prepared and I think that this is, nothing against them, but I think this is the year that someone can take them down."

Brother Rice has won 14 consecutive state championships including all 12 that have been sponsored by the Michigan High School Association.
