Stoney Creek High School, coached by Clint Rodger, had a good year in 2012. They finished theircampaign 22-14 overall and 10-5 in a tough Oakland Activities Association (OAA) Red conference. Lake Orion eventually won the OAA-Red title.
They will have six returning players, all of which will log innings on the mound. They are led by Kyle Schweiger, a Grand Rapids Community College commit, who hit .414 in 2012.
They also return sophomore RHP/IF/OF Eric Gilgenbach. Gilgenbach started every game as a freshman in 2012 and hit .419 with five home runs.
Other top returners include Justin Allor (2014) and Joe Cox (2014). Allor, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound infielder has already received interest from several Division I schools. Cox (pictured above) is also an infielder in the Class of 2014, and he has tremendous offensive capabilities.
Rochester Redskin Alum Cody Wilson leads CMU to a 24-21 Victory over Western Kentucky in the 2012 Little Caesars Bowl
Dan Enos knows one thing about Cody Wilson.
“If the ball’s anywhere near him,” Enos said, “He’s going to catch it.”
And with just over five minutes to play in Wednesday night’s Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, Central Michigan senior quarterback Ryan Radcliff put the ball, for the 10th time in the game, near his fellow senior.
He caught it.
Wilson’s 11-yard touchdown catch in the corner of the end zone gave the Chippewas a 24-21 victory over Western Kentucky in front of 23,310 at Ford Field, for their first winning season since the Dan LeFevour era.
“I’m so proud of our players and coaches,” Enos said. “We beat a good football team.”
