Coach of the Year Richardson Lion-ized
By Wendi Reardon
December 18, 2013 - Kurt Richardson, long-time head coach for the Clarkston Varsity Football team, was called down to the basketball court on Friday night. "I don't like the hoopla," he admitted when Dale Ryan, voice of the Wolves, called him down to the floor. Richardson had two visitors - Chris Fritzsching, Detroit Lions Director of Youth Football, and Roary, the Detroit Lions mascot. And it was a surprise for Richardson as they recognized him as the 2013 Detroit Lions High School Football Coach of the Year."It's like any other coaching honor you get in football it should go to the staff not the individual," Richardson said. "Our staff is responsible for that - not me." MORE...

Clarkston's Kurt Richardson a real hometown hero with state title
 
Written by  Mick McCabe Detroit Free Press Sports Writer

As Kurt Richardson made his way out of the tunnel and onto the playing surface at Ford Field for last weekend's Division 1 state championship football game, he couldn't help but notice a sea of blue and gold behind the Clarkston bench, spanning from goal line to goal line. Better yet -- the closer he looked, the more people he recognized. "Former players were trying to stuff themselves into varsity jackets and jerseys that they wore when they were 18; it was classic," he said. "Some of them gave up and threw them over their shoulder when they couldn't get them on. It was awesome." Richardson could recognize so many of those people because he is one of them.MORE...

'Great day for C-Town'

December 04, 2013 - BY WENDI REARDON

Clarkston News Sports Writer

A message from KR:

To the thousands of fans cheering at Ford Field and those following the game from afar.

"I would like to thank all the Clarkston people for what they did on Saturday," Richardson expressed. "It was unbelievable. It was so tremendous. It was like having a 12th man there. It's what Clarkston is all about.

"It was spine tingling," he added about the community support. "I don't usually notice that much during the game but during one of the time outs I walked back, looked up and went 'oh my god.' It made my skin tingle." MORE...

@kd2578

DETROIT – There probably aren’t a lot of people around the state surprised to see that Clarkston scored 32 points and collected 442 yards of total offense against Novi Detroit Catholic Central on Saturday in the Division 1 state championship game at Ford Field on Saturday. However, there probably are more than a few surprised by what Clarkston’s defense did in winning its first ever state championship via a 32-14 victory over the Shamrocks. MORE...

By JEFF DULLACK

@MIPrepZone

DETROIT – Nick Matich and David Beedle saved their best for last on Saturday afternoon. The Clarkston defensive line duo put together a dominant performance for the Wolves, proving to be more than disruptive against the traditional Catholic Central power rushing attack, limiting the Shamrocks to just 124 yards on the night en route to a convincing 32-14 Division 1 state championship game win.MORE...

CLARKSTON - For all the debate that likely has gone on this week over who has the edge between Clarkston and Novi Detroit Catholic Central, there simply is no debate over who has the edge in terms of Ford Field experience.  Going into the 1 p.m. Division 1 state final on Saturday afternoon between the Wolves and Shamrocks at Ford Field, it is as if Clarkston is a newborn and Catholic Central is a full-grown parent when it comes to experience.

@kd2578

CLARKSTON – There probably is no shortage of entertainment around the Matich household, especially with brothers Nick and Adam around for various shenanigans. First, there are the constant good-natured wrestling matches that Nick said usually take place over “stupid things.” Fortunately, both said the parents are typically around to break it up, especially since there are some good prizes at stake for the winner. “Over the last pork chop and stuff like that,” Adam said with a smile.MORE...
