Veteran French Camp Academy head football coach Nathan Wright knew it was going to be a challenge to be a No. 4 seed in the MHSAA Class 1A Football Playoffs, but he just wanted his Panthers to have the opportunity.
There is not some magical math equation that French Camp Academy has to solve in order to earn a spot in the MHSAA Class 1A State Football Playoffs that are set to kick off on Nov. 11. Win on Friday night and the Panthers are in. It's a simple as that.
Six first-half touchdowns by Nanih Waiya's Chris Smith were just too much for French Camp Academy to overcome on Friday night as the homestanding Panthers dropped a 55-7 decision to the Region 3-1A leading Warriors.
