Varsity Football vs. Lowell
The FHC football team had an incredible and memorable season. One of their many fan-favorite games was against Lowell High School.

With the Rangers superb technicality in this game, they claimed the win 35-6. The community was more than excited about the great win as the student section stormed onto the field after the game.
Varsity football vs. Mona Shores
Another great game by the FHC football team was against Muskegon Mona Shores. It was arguably one of the most entertaining games FHC had seen in a while. Going into this game, Mona Shores was favored to win. The Rangers showed up and played hard, and came out on top in the end. Important aspects of this win can be credited to senior Kade Shomins pick-six interception for a touchdown that occurred early in the third quarter. Another would be from junior Tate Hallock who caught a 73-yard touchdown on a double move from fellow junior, Luke Majick. With only 14.4 seconds remaining, the Sailors of Mona Shores threw a hail mary and senior Bryce Clay intercepted the ball. This game clinched the District Championship and is said to be one of the biggest playoff wins in the history of Ranger football.
