A year ago, King drilled Cass, 47-7, for the Technicians’ worst loss since 2009. It was a humiliating loss that Kalen King relived day after day.

“We wanted this one real bad,” the senior said. “They beat us last year — they embarrassed us last year — so we had to get revenge it and we did.”

When 5-foot-7 sophomore quarterback Leeshaun Mumpfield walked out onto the Detroit Cass Tech field Saturday, he had had modest goals.

This was his first varsity game and he was making his first start.

He did not expect to throw for over 300 yards.

“I was really nervous at the start,” he said, “but at the end we’re all going home happy.”

Cass Tech went home happy because Mumpfield was spectacular, completing 15 of 27 passes for 305 yards as the Technicians defeated arch-rival Detroit King, 34-26, in a three-hour affair at Cass.

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.

Penn State commit Kalen King rules over rival Detroit King in Cass Tech’s 34-26 win

DETROIT — Long live the King.

Although the Detroit Martin Luther King football team put up a strong effort, it was a King wearing a Detroit Cass Tech uniform who claimed the spoils of victory.

On Saturday afternoon, Cass Tech senior wide receiver Kalen King put on a show as his 184 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns on just 4 receptions led the host Technicians to a 34-26 victory.

“When you’ve got a kid who is supposed to be the No. 1 player in the state, that’s what’s supposed to happen,” Cass Tech coach Tom Wilcher said. “When you’ve got a kid who can do all of the things he can do — shoot, he made all-city in football, all-city in track and all-city in basketball — he’s a hell of a player. He’s a great player.”

King is a 5-11, 175-pound sparkplug who is committed to play college football
