After runner-up finishes in 2007, 2008, 2012, 2016 and 2019, Detroit County Day is a state champ. Friday night, the Yellowjackets beat Cadillac 13-0 at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, to capture the Michigan Division 4 high school football championship, the school’s first since 1999.

DCC’s defense was outstanding, limiting Cadillac to 166 yards in total offense. The Yellowjackets now own four (1986, 1995, 1999 and 2020) overall state championships.
