Fri, Nov 12



575 E Tienken Rd, Rochester, MI

RESULTS: Win Adams 14, West Bloonmfield 13; Record: 12-0

The Highlanders Football team had a game for the ages on Friday as they rallied from being down 13 at the half to winning 14-13 against West Bloomfield.

The Highlanders did not bat an eye as they came out and had a big stop to start the 2nd half. Alex DeGrieck had a huge sack to stop the Lakers and forced them to punt.

Adams vs Belleville, Division 1 State Championship


Ford Field, Detroit, MI

RESULTS: Loss Adams 33, Belleville 55; Record: 13-1

DETROIT, MI, November 27, 2021 - Only Two days ago, the nation’s eyes were on Ford Field, as families everywhere tuned into the NFL’s Thanksgiving gridiron game. Fast-forward 48 hours and the Rochester Adams Football team finds themselves on that same field playing for the Division 1 State Championship.

For Belleville, making their 15th playoff appearance, would this finally be there year? They are in the State Title game for the first time in team history, yet, they have been so close with semifinal losses in 2020, 2019 and 2018!

For Adams, making their 20th playoff appearance, would they capture their second State Title in history after winning it all in Division 2 in 2003?

At 12:47pm, both teams take the field. Adams in their all-yellow jerseys, pants and helmets. Belleville with white and orange jerseys, black pants, and black helmets.

At 12:56pm, the captains were at midfield for the coin toss. Adams won the toss and elected to defer. They would kick-off to Belleville to start the game.

Spectators were only allowed to be seated on the first level and Rochester and Belleville fans sat opposite each other garbed in team colors. Roars erupted at 1pm as starters and coaches were announced over the larger-than-life Ford Field speakers.

After ten more minutes of on-field practice and pep-talks from the respective coaches, it was time for the Rochester Adams band to play the National Anthem!

At 1:16pm, it was time for the Division 1 State Championship Game!


After a nice 57-yard kickoff by Adams’ sure-footed kicker, Colin Timko, Belleville began their first series on their own 17-yard line. Seven plays later, Belleville’s 14-year-old freshmen quarterback, Bryce Underwood, threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Jeremiah Caldwell. The extra point was good.

Clock 9:55
Rochester Adams 0, Belleville 7

Adams would begin their first possession on their own 27-yard line. After four straight rushing plays, that included two fumbles both recovered by Adams, the Highlanders had a 3rd and eight from their own 44-yard line. On the fifth play of the drive, Parker Picot connected with Brady Prieskorn for a 56-yard touchdown. Timko converts extra point.

Clock 06:50
Rochester Adams 7, Belleville 7

The Adams’ defense would hold Belleville to three-and-out and take over the ball on their own 45-yard line after the Tigers' 12-yard punt. After six straight rushing plays that moved the ball to the Tigers’ 31-yard line, it was a perfect time for a 31-yard touchdown pass from Parker Picot to Christian Schomer. Christian was smothered in coverage but made an outstanding catch to haul in the touchdown and give Adams their first lead of the game. Timko kick good.

Clock 00:49
Rochester Adams 14, Belleville 7


At the 9:56 mark, Adams stops a 9-play, 42-yard drive by Belleville and takes over at their own 49-yard line on downs. Nine rushing plays later, Adams has a 4th and seven from the Tigers’ 10-yard line. Colin Timko makes a 27-yard field goal.

Clock 03:20
Rochester Adams 17, Belleville 7

Belleville’s quarterback, Bryce Underwood would take the very first play of the next possession and complete a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jeremiah Caldwell. So just 10 seconds after Adams goes up by 10, the Tigers come right back and score. Extra point is good.

Clock 03:10
Rochester Adams 17, Belleville 14

Joey Shallow would take the ensuing kickoff 15 yards to start the next series at the Adams 35-yard line. The Tigers forced Adams into a 3-and-out and Tait Picot produced a 50-yard punt. Belleville now had the ball on their 10-yard line with 1:48 left in the first half.

So, what could happen in the next 1:48? Well apparently, quite a bit. Belleville’s QB, Bryce Underwood would complete three straight passes with the third one being a 72-yard touchdown reception to Jeremiah Caldwell. That would be Jeremiah’s third touchdown on three receptions for 192 receiving yards in the first half. Brayden Lane completes the extra point and Belleville takes the lead.

Clock 01:24
Rochester Adams 17, Belleville 21

Christian Schomer returns the kickoff 50 yards to the Belleville 46. Adams would then run off a 7 play, 28-yard drive that would end with a Colin Timko 35-yard field goal.

Clock 00:07
Rochester Adams 20, Belleville 21

The first half would end with 17 points scored in the final 3:10 and the Tigers go into halftime with a 21 to 20 lead.

Now Adams had been behind by two scores in the first half of the previous two playoff games against Grand Blanc and West Bloomfield. So, the Highlanders can handle coming from behind. The big question is can they overcome not having their All-State OL/DE 6-5 senior Alex DeGriek out for the second half with an ankle injury?


Rochester Adams received the second half kick off and Parker Picot returned the kick 23 yards to the Adams 30. After a first down pushed the ball to the 48-yard line, a penalty and sack would force Adams to punt from their 37 on a 4th and 21. Unfortunately, The Tigers’ Aaron Alexander broke through and blocked Tait Picot punt. Tait had the tremendous presence of mind and determination to save a touchdown by tackling the Tigers’ Jeremiah Beasle who had recovered and run the ball to the Adams six-yard line.

Two plays later Belleville’s Bryce Underwood connected with Kevin Simes for a 5-yard touchdown. Extra point was good and the Tigers were up 28-20.

Clock 07:10
Rochester Adams 20, Belleville 28

Belleville’s Brayden Lane then booted the kickoff 57 yards where Adams’ Parker Picot picked it up at the 3 and returned it 20 yards to the 23-yard line. The Highlanders drove the ball to the Tigers’ 44-yard line with an 8-play drive that included a 20-yard reception by Max Cibor from Parker Picot. On a 2nd and 10 from the Tigers 44, Parker rushed for 1-yard when Belleville forced a fumble and the Tigers Dennis Crawford returned it 37 yards to the Adams 25. Just as in the last change of possession, it took a tackle by Adams Marco Dicresce to save the touchdown.

Again, two plays later Belleville’s Jeremiah Beasle rushed for a 25-yard touchdown. Extra Point was good.

Clock 02:30
Rochester Adams 20, Belleville 35

Following the kickoff, Adams would begin their next possession at their own 32-yard line. After earning a first down on two rushing plays, the third play of the possession saw Parker Picot toss an interception. Belleville would take over at their own 32 yard-line.

Rochester Adams last three possessions ended in a blocked punt, a fumble, and an interception.

The third quarter would end with Belleville having a first down at their own 43-yard line.

This third quarter makes a good case for why you can’t read a game from the statistics. Adams out rushed the Tigers (28-26). Adams had more passing yards by the same totals (28-26). Adams had twice as many first downs (4-2). Adams had fewer penalty yards (15-25). Adams had a huge advantage in time of possession, holding the ball for 85% of the 3rd quarter or 10:12 minutes of the 12 minutes. In the end, we all know the only stat that really matters is the score, in that category Belleville won the 3rd quarter stat (14-0).


Only one minute into the fourth quarter and the Tigers completed an 8 play drive with a Bryce Underwood 18-yard touchdown pass to DeShaun Lee. Tigers missed the extra point.

Clock 10:59
Rochester Adams 20, Belleville 41

Joey Shallow returned the kickoff 18 yards to the Adams 35, add on to that a 15-yard Tiger personal foul and Adams begins their drive at midfield. On the eighth and final play of the drive, Adams had by-far, their most acrobatic and entertaining play of the game. On fourth down and 28 yards to go, Parker Picot rolled out to pass and was under intense pressure, the Tigers defense had his jersey but somehow Parker spun away from the tackler and set his feet to launch a pass to Brady Priekorn. Brady leaped in the air and managed to make contact with the ball, deflecting it straight into the air. Brady’s 6’6” frame stood ready to accept the dropping deflection and he ran the remaining yards to the endzone for a 33-yard touchdown! Colin Timko made the extra point.

Clock 07:04
Rochester Adams 27, Belleville 41

Rochester Adams was now setting up for an onside kick. Colin Timko side-kicked the ball and it ended up bouncing backwards one-yard giving Belleville possession at the Adams 39-yard line.

Four plays later, Belleville’s Colby Reed rushed for a 1-yard touchdown. Brayden Lane made the extra point.

Clock 05:20
Rochester Adams 27, Belleville 48

Damarcus Rouse returned the kickoff 7 yards to the Adams 12-yard line. With Adams down by 21, Parker Picot came out passing. He completed a 22-yard pass to Max Cibor for first down at the Adams 34. The rest of the passes would fall incomplete and with 4:27 left in the game, Adams turned the ball over to Belleville on downs.

On the third play of their drive, with the ball at the Adams 30-yard line, Belleville’s 14-year old quarterback, Bryce Underwood, came out like he would pass to his right and instead took off on a bootleg to his left, sprinting almost unopposed until reaching the endzone. Tigers converted the extra point.

Clock 03:28
Rochester Adams 27, Belleville 55

Damarcus Rouse returned the kickoff 29 yards to the Belleville 45-yard line. Nick Paterra came in as quarterback for Adams along with several other substitutions. Nick rushed on five of the next six plays, earning two first downs and bringing the ball to the Tigers’ 15-yard line. The next play would be a 15-yard rushing touchdown by Peyton Montour just inside the right corner endzone pylon. Peyton burst forth in emotion running toward the sidelines holding the ball realizing he had scored. It would be the only rushing touchdown of the night for Adams. Paxton Battersh missed the extra point.

Clock 00:19
FINAL: Rochester Adams 33, Belleville 55

In the Post-Game Press Conference Coach Patrito, as always, was a first-class professional. He shared, “The love that we have for each other and the time that we shared is pretty special. I wouldn’t trade it for anything… Win, Lose, or Draw!”
