Detroit – State powerhouses Detroit King and Detroit Cass Tech are accustomed to playing each other with a PSL championship on the line, not in a season opener that was pushed back three weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
King, ranked No. 5 by The News and the defending PSL champions, made the short trip to No. 3 Cass Tech Saturday afternoon and the game was more suited for a league championship game with hard-hitting tackles and tremendous drama with Cass Tech scoring a pair of fourth-quarter TDs and having as many red zone stops to pull out a 34-26 victory.
No doubt, the fans – two fans allowed in the gates per player – knew all about King sophomore quarterback Dante Moore who already has an offer from Michigan and helped King to the Division 2 state title game last year.
