The Power Pack – MHSAA Pigskin Coaching Power Index
Who’s got the power on the gridiron sidelines entering the 2016 campaign?
1 George Porritt (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s) – Second straight year helming the overall best squad in the state
2 Thomas Wilcher (Detroit Cass Tech) – Has built a total DI factory in the last five years, can go head-to-head with any prep program in the nation
3 Tom Mach (Novi Detroit Catholic Central) – Absolutely SICK consistency and character in the CC program going on 40 years in the Mach regime
4 John Herrington (FH Harrison) – Still the No. 1 tactician in the state
5 Dale Harvill (Detroit King) – Is King the new Cass?
6 Noel Dean (Lowell) – The Pigskin DEAN of the Westside…..’Nuff Said!!
7 Shane Fairfield (Muskegon) – See ya and the boyz in RED at Ford Field, Shane!!!
8 Mike Giannone (Warren De La Salle) – Tops in the profession out of Macomb County, will shake up the Catholic League in his new Purple Pilots’ digs
9 (tie) Kurt Richardson (Clarkston) – Plenty of rich talent left over a year removed from going back-to-back
9 (tie) Terry Hessbrook (Ithaca) – Just so much knowledge, mentorship and motivating power, the greatness just radiates!!
10 Tim Conley (Southfield A&T) – In terms of getting his players to next level, he’s the best outside of Wilcher at Cass Tech
