A huge congratulations to Coach Dan Fife and the Clarkston High School boys basketball team on winning the state championship over the weekend. Coach Fife has been hailed as one of the best coaches, not only in the state, but in the nation and he finally got that state title he's long deserved.
The Wolves beat Grand Rapids Christian 75-69 to win the Class A title, the schools first basketball championship. Michigan State commit Foster Loyer led the team with 25 points in the game and had a stellar season. GR Christian's Xavier Tillman, another Spartan commit, also had 25 points in the game, but were unable to top the Wolves.
Coach Fife has been coaching Clarkston's boys basketball team for 35 years and this was his first state title. I'm so proud to be a Clarkston alumni (I graduated back in 2009) and have an enormous amount of respect for Mr. Fife and all he has done, not only for our program, but our community in Clarkston as a whole.
