Football state final predictions

Division 1: Lake Orion vs. Rockford - Rockford handed Lake Orion its first loss of the season, 17-7, back in Week 1 at Eastern Michigan University. The Dragons have won 12 straight since then and have looked better each week. Lake Orion is hungry for its first state title in school history and looked like a team on a mission in its 38-0 pounding of Dearborn Fordson. Rockford is trying to win its first state title since 2005. Pick: Lake Orion

Division 2: Warren De La Salle (13-0) vs. Muskegon (13-0) – Pick: Muskegon
Division 3: East Grand Rapids (12-1) vs. Inkster (12-1) – Pick: Inkster

Division 4: Birmingham Detroit Country Day (11-2) vs. Holland Christian (13-0) – The Yellowjackets return to the state championship game for the second straight season, something not many people predicted would happen. Country Day has given up just 13 points in the state playoffs, while Holland Christian has racked up 166 points and is averaging 41.5 points per game in the playoffs. The Yellowjackets will need to contain Holland Christian’s offense to be successful. Pick: Holland Christian
