Harrison (Farmington) went 14-0 last season, narrowly escaping its first-round game before running roughshod over the remaining teams en route to a Division 2 state championship.

Fortunately for the Hawks, the team's three biggest stars are back and hungry for more, and the trio was featured on the cover of the September issue of our ESPNHS Michigan magazine. Seniors Aaron Burbridge, Devin Funchess and Mario Ojemudia have their sights set on leading Harrison back to the Division 2 title game and ending their prep careers with one more state title.

And after that? All three are staying in-state for college. Funchess and Ojemudia are bound for Michigan, and Burbridge will play at Michigan State next fall.
