DETROIT, Mich. — Muskegon alum Andrew Ward decided to transfer from Nebraska to Central Michigan last season but his career has been cut short. Ward suffered an undisclosed career-ending injury in the Chippewas game against Bowling Green on October 19. As the Chips prepare for Saturday's Mid-American Conference championship game, he's living through his former high school turned college teammates, Ja'Corey Sullivan and Kalil Pimpleton.

"They were my first friends actually," Ward smiled during the MAC championship press conference, "I moved to Muskegon in first grade, ever since then we've been rocking. They play a huge role in all of this, we stay together, we're roommates, having them by my side and having them still playing. I told them I live through them now as far as the football side goes, that's a huge up for me."

The Chippewas take on Miami of Ohio on Saturday at Noon inside Ford Field.
