It’s not much in the championship, but breaking a long losing streak is one of the best feelings in sports. That’s why one long-suffering Michigan high school football team has reason to celebrate this week.
New Haven (MI) had not won a game since October 2017 before Friday night’s game against Madison Heights (MI). The 35-game hitting streak is the second-longest in the state.
Thanks in part to the efforts of freshman quarterback Landon Porter, New Haven snapped the streak. Porter managed three touchdowns in the 36-16 victory. For his performance, Porter is among the nominees for Metro Detroit Football Player of the week.
New Haven head coach Larry Porter said the Macomb Daily he was extremely proud of his team.
“I’m extremely proud of this group … They worked so hard and stayed the course.”
The Rockets will try to start a winning streak at home on Friday against Hazel Park (Michigan).
