Varsity football preview: Jenison Wildcats

Coming off of the most successful season in school history with a 12-1 record and state semifinal appearance, the Rangers look to be a powerhouse once again this year. The team has its sights set on advancing all the way to Ford Field to win a state championship this season.

In the Grand Rapids Preseason Power Poll, the Rangers were ranked #1 among top-level teams in the area. FHC was also predicted to win the OK White conference by Mlive, after being outright champions for two years in a row.

The reason for the expected success out of this football team is because of the key returning players. Seniors Luke Majick (QB) and Tate Hallock (WR) were a dynamic duo last year that was key to the Ranger offense. Senior Cam Deines at running back will also be an important asset to have back. FHC also returns two-way starting lineman senior Kyle Wojczynski, as well as senior linebackers Justin Hoving and Ethan Vredenburg. Juniors Jackson Clay and Jimmy Scholler are also expected to be big names on the roster this year.

The first test for the Rangers comes this Thursday against Jenison. Since the two schools joined the OK White in 2012, FHC has gone 6-0 against the Wildcats, including a 41-0 victory last year. The Rangers are predicted to be victorious in this matchup, and coming out strong in this first game will be key to achieving team goals, such as going undefeated in the regular season.

“I hope that we can set a physical tone up front on the offensive and defensive lines [against Jenison],” Luke said. “This game is pretty important because it always feels good to get a win the first game. But Coach Rogers always talks about not peaking too early, meaning we should be playing our best football when playoffs start.”
