Gunslinger came packing the
heat on Saturday. Grayling
senior QB Jake Swander, the
gun-slinging senior lefty who
has engineered the prolific
Sanchez Spread during the
most successful two-year
stint in the history of the
Viking football program,
came loaded and ready in the
Division 5 pre-district opener
with familiar U.P. rival
Swander had the high-
powered, high-velocity T-
Mac weapon in his arsenal
and used it to shred the
Flivver secondary. He also
employed the Latusek
Special to good advantage
and when he wasnt flooding
the airways with missiles,
Swander was launching twin
torpedo blasts code names
Branch and Harris
straight into the heart of the
enemy defenders and churn-
ing out serious chunks of dis-
puted real estate.
In the end, the Vikings up-
tempo, quick-strike assault
secured a hard-fought 42-25
victory and assured Grayling
of a berth in the Division 5
district finals for the third
time in four years under head
coach Tim Sanchez.
It feels great, the smiling
Sanchez said afterward.
This is the first time weve
beaten a U.P. team (in the
playoffs) since Ive been head
coach and it was great being
able to do it today at home
with so many of our fans
Our kids played hard, he
added. Kingsfords a very
tough team and we knew we
had to match their toughness
and be very physical on the
line. I was really pleased with
our effort.
Grayling improved to 9-1
with the victory, matching
last seasons record, and
reversed a 36-14 loss at
Kingsford in the pre-district
opener a year ago. The hard-
battling Flivvers finished 6-4.
Next up for the Vikings is a
trip to Menominee to take on
the highly regarded and
unbeaten Maroons (10-0) in
the Central Time Zone of the
far western Upper Peninsula.
Menominee defeated
Houghton 63-6 in a real nail-
biter in its district opener on
Grayling will be looking to
buck history on Saturday.
The Vikings played the
Maroons for the district title
in 2010 and again in 2011 and
lost each time. The Maroons
score points in bunches, as
Grayling does, so a shootout
between these two potent,
quick-strike assault forces
seems very likely.
Sanchez knows it will be a
challenge but he welcomes it.
As the seasons gone on,
theyve gotten better,
Sanchez said of the Maroons.
Theyre crushing everybody.
They have three very good
backs and a tough line. Well
have our work cut out for us.
Well have a game plan when
we go up there and we need
to stay with it and execute it.
Part of the game plan will
no doubt be for Grayling to
put the ball into the hands of
T-Mac as much as possible.
Senior receiver Tyler T-Mac
McClanahan has been rip-
ping defensive secondaries
apart for three years as a var-
sity starter. Last year, he set
the Grayling school record
for receptions in a season
and this year he broke it
In Saturdays high-scoring
triumph over Kingsford, T-
Mac corralled 10 aerials from
Swander for a whopping 191
yards, including touchdown
strikes of 11, 50 and 9 yards in
the first half as the Vikings
established a 28-13 lead on
the scoreboard and never
looked back.
McClanahans dangerous
presence benefits the
Vikings other talented
receivers and the running
game. In the win over
Kingsford, the Vikings
amassed more than 600
yards of offense between the
Swander air assault to
McClanahan, Scout Tobin,
Danny Schultz and Brandon
Latusek and the leg-churn-
ing, yard-munching ground
attack featuring strong-strid-
ing seniors Michael Branch
and Kevin Harris.
There were numerous
explosive plays on both sides
of the ball in a game that was
dizzying at times and also
very entertaining to watch.
When Swander wasnt gen-
erating some of his 263 yards
passing with four air strikes
for TDs, he was handing the
ball to either Branch or
Harris and watching the sen-
iors slither, slash and slam
their way straight up the gut.
When he wasnt handing the
ball off or tossing it to a
receiver, he was running it
himself for 48 yards worth of
real estate and a score.
Sanchez said afterward the
Vikings were just taking what
the defense was giving them
on any given snap.
When they doubled Tyler
(McClanahan) and put six in
the box, the run was there
and thats what we did,
Sanchez said. When they
put seven in the box and left
Tyler in single coverage, Jake
put the ball in Tylers hands.
When they had Tyler covered,
Jake was able to find other
It was a good effort offen-
sively. I was really happy with
the O-line today. Weve had
some injuries that weve had
to work through this season
and I thought the guys came
together and played a really
solid game.
The Viking trench warriors
center Justice Junttila,
guards William Romain and
Emmett Helsel and tackles
Noah Kolka and Tyler Wyman
formed a black wall of defi-
ance around Swander in the
pocket on passing plays and
fired out to create seams for
Branch and Harris to bust
through on running plays.
The results speak for them-
Sanchez commended the
physical play of the entire
line but was especially
pleased with the effort of
Kolka, a freshman who was
pressed into service because
of injuries to other starters.
McClanahan said after the
game that the Vikings, espe-
cially the seniors, had plenty
of motivation to beat
Kingsford on Saturday.

revenge for them beating us
up there last year (in the
playoff opener), T-Mac said.
Theres no way we wanted to
lose to them at home, espe-
cially all the seniors. In three
years on the varsity, none of
us seniors have ever lost a
home game.
This is really sweet, he
added. It was a great team
effort today and we had a
great crowd here supporting
us. Now we have another
shot at Menominee. We know
theyre tough. When I was a
sophomore we ended the
season there and we dont
want that to happen again.
The Flivvers closed the gap
to 28-19 on their first posses-
sion of the third quarter but
the Vikings answered right
back a minute later as senior
Swander fired his fourth TD
pass of the game, a missile
that the leaping Latusek
wrestled away from converg-
ing Kingsford defender Cole
Tengesdahl in the corner of
the end zone.
Kingsford trimmed the
lead to 35-25 early in the
fourth quarter when scram-
bling QB Joe Hofer hooked
up with Brody Sundquist
down the sidelines for a 44-
yard strike on a fourth-and-
11 play. The Vikings stuffed
the critical two-point conver-
sion, however, as linebacker
Nick Swiercz and tackle
William Rock-a-Bye
Romain stuffed charging full-
back Tyler Roberts at the line
of scrimmage.
After that, the Vikings
sealed the deal with a time-
chewing18-play, 80-yard
march culminating in
Swanders 3-yard keeper up
the middle with 2:50 remain-
ing. Harriss fifth successful
PAT of the game gave the
home team an insurmount-
able 17-point lead.
Swander found Danny
Schultz for 19 yards and a key
first down early in the march,
then hooked up with
McClanahan for 16 yards for
another third-down conver-
sion to bring the ball into
Flivver territory. On fourth-
and-11 from the 14, Swander
fired to the leaping Latusek
for 13 yards over the middle
to set up the clinching score.
Latusek was well-covered
again but made the play with
his second Megatron-like
catch of the contest.
The Flivvers got the ball
back one final time after that
but were unable to advance
as Hofer was sacked by blitz-
ing linebackers Swiercz and
Swander hit on 18-of-36
aerials for 263 yards in the
contest. Latusek hauled in
three for 33 yards, including
the two tough catches in traf-
fic. Branch bashed, dashed
and crashed his way to 152
yards on 23 carries with a 10-
yard TD on his stat line and
the elusive Harris darted and
slashed his way to 155 yards
on 17 tries.
Cornerback Jaxson Ferree
returned an interception 75
yards to put the Flivvers first
points on the board. Running
back Alex Patterson raced 74
yards on a trap play to set up
the visitors second touch-
down, a 1-yard plunge by
Roberts. Patterson also tal-
lied on a 4-yard sweep in the
third quarter. Long-armed
lineman Hugh Harris
blocked a punt to set up
Kingsfords final touchdown
of the day, the 44-yard bomb
from Hofer to Sundquist.
Harris also recovered a fum-
ble, as did Roberts on a
muffed punt.
In addition to his receiving
yards, McClanahan also had
a huge game defensively,
making 10 tackles and a leap-
ing interception inside the 5-
yard line to halt the Flivvers
first drive of the game.
The ubiquitous Branch,
who covered the field like
green on a grass blade, had a
team-high 11 tackles and was
gave the Flivvers fits with his
bonsai-like blitzes. Rock-a-
Bye Romain was a fearsome
force on both sides of the
trenches. Defensively he
made nine stops and had two

knew it would be tough and
he was right.
The Ironmen made the
long trip north to face
unbeaten Ishpeming in the
Div. 7 playoffs for the second
year in a row and, for the sec-
ond year in a row, the
Ironmen season ended in the
The defending state cham-
pion Hematites improved to
10-0 and face unbeaten West
Iron County in the district
title game this week.
Last year, the Ironmen won
their playoff opener at home
against Whittemore-Prescott
and met up with the
Hematites in week two with
the district title on the line.
This year, the Ironmen
opened the playoffs at
Ishpeming. The 50-0 loss in
the pre-district clash left
Mancelona with a
respectable 7-3 record for the
2013 campaign.
Mancy made the playoffs
for the sixth time in seven
years in the Derrer Era. The
Ironmen also captured the
Ski Valley title for the fourth
straight year and extended
their league winning streak
to 26 in a row dating back to
October of 2009. With both
West Iron County and
Ishpeming in their playoff
district, the Ironmen were
not able to accumulate
enough points during the
season to host a playoff game
this year. They ended up as
the No. 3 seed and had to
make the trip to Ishpeming
for the opener. On the other
side of the bracket, No. 1 seed
West Iron County played host
to Traverse City St. Francis
and secured a 21-6 victory.
The Ironmen played hard
in the loss at Ishpeming but
the Hematites were simply
the better team.
Theyre a great team,
Derrer acknowledged. Their
quarterback (Alex Briones) is
the real deal. Hes a D-1 kid
and he played like it.
We couldnt move the
ball, he added. We did a
pretty good job of stopping
their run but when they went
to the pass, we couldnt stop
them. We werent able to get
pressure on their quarter-
back and he was really accu-
rate with his passes.
Briones, who is bound for
Central Michigan University
next year, was super in the
game, hitting 7-of-10 for 246
yards and five touchdowns.
The Ironmen were over-
matched but still gave a gritty
The kids played hard and
didnt give up, Derrer said. A
few of our kids had really
good games. (Senior two-way
lineman) Tristan Waters may
have had his best game of the
year. He was outstanding on
defense. He did exactly what
we told him to do. He was
one of the guys who really
stepped up and played well.
Derrer also commended
the hard-nosed play of senior
linebacker Luke Smash
Mouth Smigielski, defensive
end Garrett Derrer and nose
guard Cody Derrer.
Overall, the kids played
hard; they were just a lot bet-
ter, he said.
Leg-churning senior full-
back Logan Borst was
engulfed by blue Hematite
jerseys every time he
touched the ball. He wasnt
able to generate a ton of
yardage but he capped his
notable prep career with
another blue-collar effort,
running the ball like a loco-
motive every time he carried
the pigskin.
Fellow senior backs Justin
Spires and Erik Wheeler ran
equally hard but ran into the
same blue wall of tacklers.
The Ironmen were not able
to get a first down until the
third quarter. Spires smashed
and bashed his way to a
team-high 23 yards in eight
On the defensive side,
Garrett Derrer delivered
takedowns nine times.
Smash Mouth Smigielski
and Waters put the whack
down eight times each.
Boo will miss the seniors
who will be graduating and
leaving the program.
Theyre a great group of
kids, he said. Theyve
played a big part in keeping
the winning tradition going.
Theyve represented
Mancelona well and led the
way for the younger guys.
Derrer said there were a lot
of tears in the locker-room
after Saturdays game.
Its always tough because

Vikings Win Continued...
By Mike Dunn
GAYLORD Six teams from
the coverage area of the
Weekly Choice qualified for
the prep football playoffs this
year. After the pre-district
round was completed over
the weekend, there were two
still remaining.
Grayling moved on in
Division 5 and
Johannesburg-Lewiston in
Division 8.
Cheboygan, Inland Lakes,
Mancelona and Mio all lost
their playoffs openers and
saw their season come to an
Grayling earned a 42-25
victory over visiting
Kingsford in a thrilling
slugfest of a game in the
Division 5 opener on
Saturday. The high-powered
Vikings of coach Tim
Sanchez improved to 9-1 and
advanced to the district
championship game this
Saturday at 2 p.m. against
rugged Menominee. The
unbeaten Maroons (10-0)
defeated Houghton 63-6 in
their opener.
This is the third time in
four years the Vikings make
the long trip to the far west-
ern U.P. to take on the
Marrons. They are hoping to
buck history this time
around. The last two times
Menominee has won by lop-
sided scores.
The Vikings will seek to
outscore Menominee with its
vaunted up-tempo, quick-
strike assault featuring senior
signal caller Jake Swander fir-
ing missiles to a fleet-footed
corps of receivers including
Tyler McClanahan, Scout
Tobin, Danny Schultz and
Brandon Latusek, and the
ground fire provided by sen-
iors Michael Branch and
Kevin Harris.
A big key in the game for
Grayling will be its ability to
keep the Maroons from mak-
ing explosive plays and piling
up points in a hurry.
improved to 8-2 under first-
year head coach Joe
Smokevitch with a surpris-
ingly tough 26-20 victory
over stubborn Atlanta in the
pre-district opener. The
Huskies, who came in with a
5-4 record, made enough big
plays from their talented
playmakers to stay in con-
tention to the end.
The young Cardinals, who
feature a sophomore-rich
roster this season, will seek to
regroup in a hurry and give
the Saints a four-quarter bat-
tle. St. Ignace, which defeat-
ed Hillman convincingly in
the pre-district game, also
owns an 8-2 record.
The Cardinals will look to
diversify their offensive
scheme a bit and throw the
ball more often to prevent St.
Ignace from loading up the
box to take away the run. J-L
has not had to throw the ball
much this season, mainly
because the running game
featuring the leg-churning
bursts of fullback Nick May
and halfbacks Dillon
Cushman, Ethan May and
Lights Out Logan Huff,
among others, has been so
effective. QB Brandon Huff is
very capable of throwing the
ball, however, and has reli-
able targets in tight ends
Coalton Huff and Cam
The last time the Cardinals
faced St. Ignace in the play-
offs was 2009 in
Johannesburg, with the
Cardinals earning a close win
to advance to the regional
Cheboygan, the No. 2 seed
in its district, saw a notable
season come to an end with
the 41-17 loss to Ogemaw in
the Division 4 opener. The
Chiefs of coach Jack Coon
finished with a 7-3 mark.
Ogemaw advanced to face
Cadillac in the district title
The Inland Lakes Bulldogs
of coach Stan Schramm
ended their season with a 6-4
mark after losing at
Negaunee in Division 6. It
was the battling Bulldogs
first trip to the postseason
since the 2009 season.
Mancelona made the long
trip north to Ishpeming for
the second year in a row in
Division 7 and got eliminated
by the defending state cham-
pions again. The Ironmen of
coach Dan Boo Derrer fin-
ished another playoff season
with a 7-3 mark. They quali-
fied for the playoffs for the
sixth time in the seven years
of the Derrer Era.
The Mio Thunderbolts of
coach Jim Genernalik also
had a tough playoff draw, fac-
ing Division 8 state finalist
Beal City in the opening
round. The Bolts opened the
playoffs at Beal for the sec-
ond year in a row. They fin-
ished another productive
campaign with a 7-3 record.

under five minutes
remaining in the first half,
Cheboygan had a 10-0
Some 16 minutes of
game time later, it was sea-
son over for the Chiefs.
West Branch Ogemaw
Heights hit Cheboygan
with a flurry of big plays in
ousting the Chiefs from the
high school football state
playoffs, 41-17, Saturday in
a Division 4 pre-district
game at Western Avenue
It spelled the end for
Cheboygan, which fin-
ished 7-3, its highest win
total since it went 8-2 in
It was disappointing
after working for a 10-
point lead and you really
felt you had control of the
game, Cheboygan coach
Jack Coon said. Within
three, five minutes, losing
it that quickly, it just deflat-
ed the kids a great deal.
It was the second
straight year that Ogemaw
Heights eliminated
Cheboygan from the play-
offs. The Falcons (7-3) will
play at Cadillac (10-0) 7
p.m. Friday in the district
championship game.
Cheboygan gained the
upper hand early on, and
moved the ball effectively
while holding in check a
speedy and dangerous
Ogemaw offense.
Cheboygan got a 3-yard
touchdown run from Ben
Pearson and a 30-yard field
goal from Austin Ginop for
its 10-0 advantage.
Both scores were set up
with well-executed razzle-
dazzle plays.
The first came when
quarterback Luke
Harrington handed off to
fullback Nik Bevier, and
Bevier took two steps
toward the line, then
underhanded the ball back
to Harrington. Harrington
hit Nathan Stempky for a
33-yard gain to Ogemaws
22-yard line. Five plays
later, Pearson was in the
end zone and Ginop added
the extra point for a 7-0
Pearson recovered a
fumble at midfield on
Ogemaws next possession
and on the Chiefs first
play, Coon dipped into the
bag of tricks again. This
time, Harrington pitched
to Pearson running wide,
and Pearson handed the
ball behind the line of
scrimmage to end Chris
Demeuse running in the
opposition direction. The
left-handed Demeuse
found Pearson open for a
35-yard pickup to
Ogemaws 14. Four plays
later, Ginops 30-yard boot
split the uprights to make
it 10-0 with 4 minutes, 55
seconds left in the half.
The aggressive play-call-
ing was part of the game
plan, Coon said.
We were going to pull
out all the stops and we
had more in the bag, he
said. We felt that we were
going to take that attitude
that we were going to go
after this game hard, right
from the beginning.
Ogemaw answered
Josh Awrey returned the
kickoff 95 yards for a
touchdown and Brandon
Winter kicked the extra
point to give the Falcons a
major momentum boost.
The Chiefs failed to gain
a first down on their next
possession and punted,
giving Ogemaw the ball at
its own 21-yard line with
just over 2 minutes left in
the half. Devin Griffus
tossed to Ben Hartley who
made an outstanding leap-
ing grab near the
Cheboygan sideline at
about midfield, then
dodged several tacklers in
picking up another 25
yards, putting the Falcons
at Cheboygans 24. Three
plays later, Griffus scored
on a 4-yard run and
Ogemaw had a 14-10 half-
time lead and all the
The kickoff return and
the failure to move the ball
and get a first down really
set the stage, Coon said.
We didnt cover very well
on the kickoff, took some
poor angles and (Awrey)
hit the crease. Thats
another example of how
youve got to play every
facet of the game, offense,
defense and special teams.
Our kickoff coverage has
been excellent all year. We
just didnt have a good one
right there.
I thought defensively
our kids played well in the
first half with the exception
of the long pass. We had
that covered, (Hartley)
made a good catch on it. I
thought we were really in
good shape until that hap-
And while Coon and his
team looked to regroup at
halftime, Ogemaw didnt
miss a beat after the break.
The Falcons returned
the second-half kickoff for
a touchdown, but the play
was nullified by a penalty,
and they set up shop in the
third quarter at their own
22-yard line. Three plays
into the drive, Griffus and
Awrey hooked up on a 52-
yard pass play that gave
the Falcons a first down at
Cheboygans 22. After a
short gain by Awrey, Griffus
found a leaping Hartley in
the end zone to make it 21-
10 less than three minutes
into the second half.
And while Cheboygan
was still very much in the
game, the Falcon freight
train was only picking up
I really felt that even
though we were down 21-
10, I thought, Lets just
grind this out, Coon said.
We felt confident that we
could still move the ball,
but we just never broke a
big one. We never respond-
ed with a big play of our
We werent as effective
in our passing game as we
wanted to be. They covered
our routes pretty well and
they have good team
speed. It limited us in what
we could do. We just didnt
respond the way we should
have, or the way we have.
Cheboygan managed a
first down on its next drive,
but was forced to punt
from midfield, giving the
Falcons possession at their
own 18.
On Ogemaws first play,
Awrey raced 82 yards virtu-
ally untouched to increase
the lead to 28-10 with 5:30
to play in the third quarter.
Cheboygan failed to field
the kickoff a low, curving
liner and Ogemaw cov-
ered, taking over at the
Chief 29. Three plays later,
Griffus connected with
Michael vonKronenberger
on a 29-yard TD pass play,
extending the lead to 34-
Hartley intercepted a
Harrington pass on
Cheboygans next posses-
sion, giving the Falcons the
ball at Cheboygans 17.
Awrey then scored on a 12-
yard run to make it 41-10
with 1:19 left in the third
Awrey finished with 126
yards on 14 carries, while
Griffus completed all six of
his pass attempts for 184
yards. Awrey had three
catches for 91 yards, and
Hartley finished with three
for 74.
Pearson led Cheboygans
rushing attack with 80
yards on 16 attempts,
while Bevier finished with
68 on 13 touches, and John
Grantner added 66 on 15.
Harrington completed 5-
of-10 passes for 75 yards.
Pearson had two catches
for 41 yards.
Grantner scored on an 8-
yard run midway through
the fourth quarter for the
final margin.
Perhaps overshadowed
by the loss was the fact that
the Chiefs, once again, put
together a solid season and
made great strides in
employing a new offense,
the pistol wing-T. It was
Cheboygans second
straight playoff appear-
ance and the 18th in
school history, and it was
the Chiefs third consecu-
tive winning season, and
their ninth in the last 10
We have a very positive
attitude about the results
of our 2013 program,
Coon said. We installed a
lot things. There was a lot
of learning, not only by the
kids, but also by the coach-
ing staff.
We had a 7-2 freshman
team, and our JV team,
with only 17 kids, went
from being 1-7 as fresh-
man to 5-3 this year, and
those kids got a lot of play-
ing time, a lot of experi-
ence, and there was a great
deal of toughness devel-
oped. Were back in the
playoffs and we want to get
back to that consistency.
You just keep coming back
and you keep trying to
knock down those doors
and get a little bit deeper
(in the playoffs).
Our leadership from
our captains (Pearson,
Jameson Knolton, Colton
Hudak) was really good, we
had solid leadership,
Coon said. Were going
miss their leadership. We
have 19 graduating sen-
iors, we have 19 different
stories and different rela-
tionships. Its always sad to
see kids go, but we have 19
different memories, stories
with each and every one of
We have a good time in
the fieldhouse, we enjoyed
having them and collec-
tively weve enjoyed them
playing and representing
our community. When
they hear the name
Cheboygan, they still think
of good solid football. Of
course our goal is to get it
back to championship

Chiefs bow in
pre-district playoff game
to Ogemaw Heights
By Mike Dunn
Johannesburg- Lewi st on
head coach Joe Smokevitch
didnt sugar coat things after
Fridays 26-20 victory over
stubborn Atlanta in the first
round of the Division 8 play-
The Cardinals improved to
8-2 in Smokevitchs first year
as head coach and advanced
to the district finals at St.
Ignace. Thats a solid accom-
plishment for a young
Cardinals squad but even so
Smokevitch didnt give his
team a very high grade for its
performance against Atlanta,
which made the playoffs with
a 5-4 record.
We didnt play very well
Friday night, said
Smokevitch, who isnt afraid
to say it like it is. Atlanta
came ready to play and we
didnt. They were tough.
Their playmakers made plays
and kept them close.
The game was close
against an Atlanta team that
hadnt beaten the Cardinals
since the 1992 season. The
Cardinals trailed 6-0 after the
first quarter and led just 14-
12 at halftime and 20-12 after
three quarters.
It wasnt until strong-strid-
ing sophomore fullback Nick
May powered his way across
the goal-line for his second
touchdown early in the
fourth quarter that J-L had
any kind of cushion on the
scoreboard. The determined
Huskies came right back and
scored on their next posses-
sion, however, when QB Seth
Teets hooked up with the
dangerous Jacob Chambers
for 71 yards to pull within six
points, 26-20, with 9:30
remaining in the game.
And thats how it ended up.
The Cardinals were able to
move the chains sufficiently
enough to take time off the
clock and keep the visitors
from reaching the end zone
again before the final buzzer
It wasnt pretty but its
nice to win and have a
chance to play for the district
title again, Smokevitch said.
What saved us is that we
were able to move the ball
even when they put 10 in the
box to stop us. Thats the kind
of stuff weve been seeing all
year and the kids are used to
dealing with it.
One of the key plays for J-L
in the contest was an 80-yard
breakaway from senior half-
back Dillon Cushman early
in the second quarter.
Cushman took the handoff
from QB Brandon Huff,
found a seam behind the
lead blocks of bust-it-out
fullback Nick May and soph-
omore pulling guard Joel K-
Ram Kussrow and then
turned on the afterburners.
He didnt stop until he
reached the end zone.
Cushmans timely sprint
broke a 6-6 tie and gave the
Cardinals a lead they would
not relinquish. Signal caller
Brandon Huff bulled his way
to paydirt for two points to
make it a 14-6 game with 9:02
left until halftime.
Cushmans score came on
the heels of a 2-yard burst
from elusive halfback Ethan
May to knot the score at 6 at
the 10:17 mark of the quarter.
Atlanta rallied to trim the
lead to 14-12 shortly before
the half when Teets tallied on
a short run, but the Cardinals
added to their lead on their
first possession of the second
half when Nick May motored
15 yards on the Cardinals
patented fullback trap to
make it 20-12.
Nick Mays second TD
early in the fourth quarter
made it 26-12 but the visitors
came right back to make it
26-20 on the long connection
from Teets to Chambers.
J-L pushed, pounded and
powered to 347 rushing yards
in the contest. Cushman car-
ried 13 times for a team-high
134 yards and Nick May
churned out 105 yards on 23
attempts. Elusive Ethan May
darted and dashed to 52
yards on six tries and Lights
Out Logan Huff picked up
26 yards in two carries.
Sophomore fullback Dale
Wells, seeing his first varsity
action of the season, played
well in a reserve role, busting
out for 26 yards in three tries
while giving Nick May a rest.
Smokevitch also noted the
play of Joel Kussrow at right
guard. The sophomore was
brought up from the JV and
filled in for sidelined starter
Trevor Pickelmann and made
his presence felt, especially
on Cushmans critical break-
Defensively, junior line-
backer Andrew Gross cov-
ered the field like gravy on
biscuits, making six solo
stops with 10 assists. Strong
safety Coalton Huff has been
a king of collision for the
Cardinals all season and con-
tinued that in the playoffs,
participating in 14 tackles.
Logan Huff was lights out
also, making 11 stops, and
Brandon Huff was a bruise
maker, taking part in 10 take-
downs. Defensive ends Joel
Kussrow and Dangerous Dan
Nieman combined for a
whopping 21 tackles, with
Nieman making 11 take-
downs with a tackle for loss
and Kussrow corralling ball
carriers 10 times.
Kalin Leonard was in
Krush mode also, partici-
pating in nine tackles with a
tackle for loss. Cam Nickert
put the close down on seven
runs and nose guard Nate
Fox fired in like he was
launched from a slingshot
and blocked another punt.
Teets hit on 14-of-34 aeri-
als for 246 yards in the game
with two TDs. Chambers
grabbed six of those missiles
for 115 yards.
St. Ignace in the playoffs, it
was in Johannesburg in 2009
and the Cardinals prevailed
in a close one to advance to
the regional finals that year.
A repeat performance will
require a stellar showing
from the young Cardinals,
their best game of the year.
St. Ignace is very athletic
and very fast, Smokevitch
said. Theyre a little more
physical than we are and
theyre really well-coached.
They remind me of us but
theyre a little older than we
are and a little more experi-
The Saints run and pass
about 50 percent of the time.
We have to recognize
their different formations
and not let them break the
big play, Smokevitch said.
We have to put pressure on
their quarterback. Thatll be
When the Cardinals have
the ball, they will need to
throw more and open things
up to spread the Saints
If we dont, theyll put 10
guys in the box, Smokevitch
said. We need to open the
field a little more and make
them respect the pass. Thatll
be a big key for us.

BEAL CITY For one half,
it seemed as though the Mio
Thunderbolts might just be
able to keep up with one of
the top-ranked teams in high
school football and, with a
few breaks, maybe even
advance to the next round of
the state playoffs.
But, in the end, undefeated
Beal City proved too much
and mistakes by Mio players
were too costly. So, Beal City
will be the team to advance
after a 68-15 win in the
District 8 pre-district clash
on Friday, Nov. 1.
Beal City (10-0 overall)
struck first and put up 15
points in the first quarter.
But, Mio head coach Jim
Gendernalik said his team
seemed to recover, battling
back and scoring twice in the
second quarter.
Still, the undefeated Aggies
had a solid 36-15 lead over
Mio (7-3 overall) at the half.
We played better than the
score indicated in the first
half, Gendernalik said. It
was an amazing half.
Gendernalik added Mio
might have caught Beal City
somewhat by surprise by
being able to run the ball
inside using a variety of run-
ning backs, including under-
classmen Scott Blamer, Brian
Watson and Zac Price.
Watson tallied the first Mio
touchdown on a 16-yard run
at the 8:49 mark of the sec-
ond quarter. And, senior
Bryson Devers punched the
ball in from just a yard out
with just over a minute left in
the first half, with senior
quarterback and kicker Brad
Rhoads tacking on the extra
If we could have cleaned
things up, we had a chance,
the Mio coach added. The
spirits were high.
However, Beal City seem-
ingly dashed any hopes of a
Mio upset early in the third
quarter. After a stalled pos-
session by the Thunderbolts
to start the second half, the
Aggies needed just two plays
to put another TD on the
The biggest thing was not
playing defense,
Gendernalik said of his
teams second-half perform-
ance, adding his players
struggled to make the proper
plays on both sides of the
ball. It was a tough loss for
the seniors.
The stout Aggies defense
held Rhoads to only 93 yards
passing, as well as limiting
Mio to only 92 yards rushing.
Though, Rhoads' coach cred-
ited the senior quarterback
with still finding ways to be
effective in leading Mios
offensive attack.
Defensively, senior Chaun
Obermiller had an intercep-
tion and sophomore Jacob
Lentz tallied one of two fum-
ble recoveries by Mio defend-
We had a good year, a
good streak, Gendernalik
said. Our biggest goal is
going to the state playoffs
each year.
And, usually, thats a goal
Mio teams have achieved.
Last Fridays game was the
Thunderbolts 13th consecu-
tive trip to the state playoffs.
Not many teams can say
that, Gendernalik added.
With the win, Beal City will
next travel to Mt. Pleasant to
face Sacred Heart Academy
(7-3 overall) on Friday, Nov. 8,
in the Division 8 district final.

BROOKLYN It was a great
way to end a notable season.
Gaylords strong-striding
sophomore Alexis Smith
turned in an outstanding
performance in the muck
and mire Saturday at
Michigan International
Speedway in Brooklyn, fight-
ing through the tough condi-
tions to take ninth place
overall in the Division 2 state
cross country finals.
Alexis earned All-State
with her amazing perform-
ance, finishing in a personal-
best time of 18:57.1. Petoskey
freshman Lily Cesario also
earned All-State recognition,
coming in 28th overall in
Cheboygan junior Mandy
Paull also showed up strong
at Brooklyn, with Lily achiev-
ing 27th place in 19:26.7 and
Mandy racing to 38th place
in 19:39.8.
Alexis was first among all
the sophomores who com-
peted in the D-2 meet
Saturday and Lily, who also
has a very bright future, was
fourth among all the fresh-
Alexis is the first Gaylord
girl since Amanda Olds in
2008 to achieve All-State and
one of the few runners to
turn in a personal-best time
on Saturday on the wet, slip-
pery turf. She finished ninth
in the Big North this season,
ninth in the regional meet
and ninth at state, finishing
just seconds behind the
1600-meter and 800-meter
state track champion Megan
ONeill of Chippewa Hills.
Alexis made steady
progress over the season,
reported Gaylord coach Jeff
Kalember. She started in the
22-minute range, then 21,
then into the 19s at our home
invite, and then an 18:57 at
Smiths performance puts
her in elite company. She had
the fourth fastest time ever
for a Gaylord gal in the state
meet, behind Sloan Secord
(first in 2007), Thereseann
Zimmerman (fifth in 2004)
and Sammy Hunt (sixth in
Petoskey came in 20th place
as a team Saturday and
Gaylord seniors Sterling
McPherson and Josh Green
competed as individuals.
McPherson and Green got
to finish out their prep
careers at Brooklyn, which is
the goal of every senior harri-
er. McPherson came in 53rd
overall in 16:50.3 to cap his
notable four years as a varsity
runner for the Blue Devils
and coach Kalember. Green,
a three-year letter winner,
finished his final race in a
time of 17:29.6.
Sterlings All-Conference
and All-Regional honors
speak for themselves and his
leadership role on our team
will be missed, Kalember
said. Sterling trained
through many of our early
races, focusing on the big
meets at the end of the sea-
son and his efforts paid off in
these last couple weeks.
Joshs state finals race was
not what we'd hoped, but his
All-Regional seventh-place
finish, just a step behind
Sterling, was definitely the
highlight of his season. Josh
leaves Gaylord as a three-
year letter winner with all-
regional honors and as our
team captain. Both will be
missed next season.
For the Petoskey boys, sen-
ior Mark Smith and junior
Thomas VanSlembrouck
were the top two finishers,
with Smith taking 64th over-
all in 17:06.9 and
VanSlembrouck just a few
strides behind, taking 67th in
Sophomore Max Myerson
was third for the Northmen
in 17:19.4, good for 84th
place in the very tough field,
followed by senior Quentin
Fettig (17:46.4, 120th) and
sophomore Jacob Kromm
(17:55.7, 128th) with junior
Chase Gregory (18:06.4) and
sophomore Andy Frampus
(18:14.7) as the sixth and sev-
enth runners.

Chiefs defeat Ogemaw Heights in four in B tourney; Northmen sink Sault in four in A tourney
By Andy Sneddon
defeated West Branch
Ogemaw Heights, 25-11, 26-
24, 24-26, 25-22, Monday in a
Class B district volleyball
opener on Monday.
The Chiefs, 43-17-9, were
scheduled to play
Roscommon in a semifinal
match on Wednesday. The
other semifinal pits Cadillac
against Grayling, a match the
Vikings who are ranked sev-
enth in the coaches associa-
tion state poll would be
heavily favored to win.
If Cheboygan reaches the
title match, it would be
played at 7 p.m. Friday in
The Chiefs lost all three of
their meetings with
Roscommon this season, but
Cheboygan entered the dis-
trict tournament on a wave
of momentum after winning
the Straits Area Conference
over the weekend.
It was Cheboygans first
league title since 2010, and it
helped right the ship, coach
Kris Jewell said.
If you had asked me a
week ago, I would have said
Im not sure because we had
a shaky two weeks coming
into the conference tourna-
ment, she said. We were
playing kind of flat. But we
said No way, were not going
to play like that.
The way we played
Saturday (in the league tour-
nament), theres no way this
team is going to lay down
and take it. They really want
to play Roscommon. Thats
something theyve been gun-
ning for since the last time
we saw them in a tourna-
Kelsey Reager led the
Chiefs with 19 kills in their
victory over Ogemaw
Heights, while Brooke
Beaubien added 17 kills and
24 digs. Also for the Chiefs,
Kaitlin Dobrowolski finished
with 45 assists and 20 digs,
and Corrie Bongard added
nine blocks.
Jewell said that the three
losses Cheboygan suffered at
the hands of the Bucks this
season came during Saturday
tournaments, and all of those
matches were closely con-
tested. If the Chiefs should
get by the Bucks, they very
likely will meet Cadillac in
the title match on Friday. The
Vikings are among the very
best programs in Northern
Michigan, having reached
the state semifinals in 2009
and the quarterfinals in each
of the past three seasons.
I said You know were
going to play as hard as we
can and if we pull this off,
you will have earned it,
Jewell said of her message to
her team heading into the
tournament. Were young
but experienced. I have two
sophomores (Beaubien and
Katie Swiderek) who played
as freshmen on the varsity
last year, and Kaitlin
(Dobrowolski) is a junior and
shes a three-year varsity
player. I have four sopho-
mores on the team.

Northmen advance
PETOSKEY Jayme Larson
had 14 kills, 37 digs and three
blocks as Petoskey opened
Class A district play on
Monday with a 25-22, 20-25,
25-14, 25-13 victory over
Sault Ste. Marie.
The Northmen were
scheduled to play Traverse
City Central on Wednesday in
a semifinal match. The other
semifinal had Traverse City
West taking on Marquette.
The final is scheduled for
Saturday at either Marquette
or T.C. West. T.C. Central
advanced to Wednesdays
semifinal by topping Gaylord
in three sets.
Natalie Weaver added 10
kills for the Northmen in
their win over Sault Ste.
Marie, while setter Trista
Boyd had 34 assists, 14 digs
and four kills.
Mari Hibbler led Petoskeys
defense with 22 digs, while
Tori Visconti and Katie Lewis
added eight apiece, and
Katrina Daniel finished with
nine blocks and three kills.
Were young and inexperi-
enced and weve struggled all
year with consistentcy, but
the last two matches weve
pulled together and played
pretty well, Northmen
coach Heather Miller said.

GAYLORD Make it more
than $25,000 raised in support
of the Grayling golf team and
their families. That after about
$7,600 was raised at the
Celebrate Grayling Recovery
dinner at the Treetops Resort
in Gaylord on Saturday, Nov. 2.
About 100 people attended
the dinner fundraiser held to
benefit members and families
of the Grayling boys varsity
golf team impacted by a tragic
two-vehicle accident April 29
in Kalkaska Countys Excelsior
Township that claimed the
lives of three people, includ-
ing golf coach Jason Potter
and golfer Louis Menard.
Several other members of
the golf team were injured,
though all are now in various
states of recovery.
A little over six months ago
things changed for me, said
Gunner Metzer, one of the
golfers hurt in the accident.
Were in different stages of
(But) theres been so much
support from everybody its
ridiculous, he added. (And)
Jason may be gone, but never
Despite not holding any
organized fundraiser till the
Nov. 2 dinner, members of The
Grayling Golf Recovery
Foundation reported about
$18,000 had already been
donated to help the golf team.
Jerry Coyne, co-owner of
the Grayling-based Blarney
Stone Broadcasting and mem-
ber of the foundation board,
said he that after the accident
he and others were contacted
by people from all over
Michigan who wanted to help
in some way.
It was amazing the out-
pouring of support, Coyne
added. It was mostly from the
golf community.
Those attending Saturdays
dinner paid $50 per person.
More was raised through a
silent auction that included
signed sports memorabilia, as
well as a live auction. A guitar
to be signed by rock-n-roll
legend Bob Seger went for a
winning bid of $3,250.
This is the only fundrais-
er, said Coyne. We wanted
this to be a celebration. We
wanted this to help put a pos-
itive spin on things.
Each of the foundation
members, including Anita
Merchant of Chemical Bank in
Grayling, thanked those
attending the dinner and for
their continued support.
We didnt expect all of you
guys would come. But, you
did, she said. It shows how
youve opened your hearts.
The great thing is it was
started to help the families.
Every time we wrote a check
to the families to help it was
a great feeling.
(And) the letters that came
with the deposits were phe-
nomenal. They came from all
over the state, she added. I
want to thank you so much.
While the foundation also
already collected more than
$25,000 in donations, includ-
ing that raised at the dinner,
Thomas Ruden of Tomlyn
Advisors said the total could
still grow. Ruden, also a foun-
dation member, said hes been
in contact with other founda-
tions which would like to help
support the Grayling effort, if
and when it is granted non-
profit status.
Were really excited about
that, he said. I was just
amazed to see all the funds
come in. And theyre still com-
ing in.
A job well done.
At some point, Ruden the
foundation will be dissolved.
The funds collected will be
turned over Crawford-
AuSable Schools to fund
scholarships to the golf team
members impacted by the
accident, as well as Menards
sister. That could happen as
early as this spring, he added.
But, if the outpouring of
support at the dinner wasnt
enough, it was also
announced that the Grayling
Country Club is moving for-
ward with plans to build a
memorial to Potter and those
impacted by the accident at
the local golf club.
Yesterday, we broke
ground, said Chet Wheeler,
president of the country clubs
board and assistant golf
coach, adding the memorial
should be finished in spring
2014. The biggest thing we
can do is not forget about any-
one involved in this.
And, prior to the dinner,
golf team members were
reportedly presented new golf
equipment by Nike Golf.
Jason Guss, director of golf
performance at Treetops, said
it was inspiring to see the
players, including several hes
worked with over the years,
back to being able to take a
golf swing and enjoy the game
they love.
Its unbelievable, Guss
said, also commenting on how
people in Grayling and
throughout the area rallied to
the cause. It makes me proud
to be from a small community.
Most importantly, I want to
thank those boys for being so
tough. Theyre Grayling

European frog-bit appears to be spreading into Northern Lower Peninsula
ALPENA The Department
of Natural Resources' Wildlife
Division is leading response
efforts to control a new
aquatic invasive plant,
European frog-bit
(Hydrocharis morsus-ranae).
Until recently, this free-float-
ing plant had only been
reported in a few localized
sites in the southeastern
Lower Peninsula. Through
recent statewide monitoring
efforts, this species has been
detected in Saginaw Bay,
Alpena and Munuscong Bay
in Chippewa County.
This new invasive species
was detected as a result of an
Early Detection Rapid
Response (EDRR) pilot proj-
ect funded through a federal
Great Lakes Restoration
Initiative grant. The project
relies on collaboration with
partners, including Michigan
State University and
Cooperative Weed
Management Area groups.
Using the new State of
Michigans Rapid Response
Plan for Aquatic Invasive
Species, developed jointly by
the DNR, DEQ and MDARD,
these new reports were veri-
fied, an on-site assessment
was conducted and a
response plan was formulat-
ed. Control measures are
under way, including physi-
cal removal (1,500 pounds
removed beginning in mid-
September) and trial treat-
ments with herbicides.
Responding quickly to a
new invasive species is criti-
cal to increasing our chances
of success, and it requires a
well-organized, collaborative
effort between multiple
agencies and other partners,
said Wildlife Division chief
Russ Mason.
Education, outreach and
future control activities are
being planned with local
stakeholders and partner
groups. A complete outline of
the EDRR program, includ-
ing future stages, is defined
in the newly revised SOM
Aquatic Invasive Species
State Management Plan at
European frog-bit was
accidentally released into
Canadian waters between
1932 and 1939, and has since
spread throughout Ontario,
New York, Vermont and other
eastern states. It forms
extremely dense vegetative
mats that cover the available
open water surface. Frog-bit
shades out submerged native
plants, reducing invertebrate
and plant biodiversity, dis-
rupts natural water flow,
inhibits watercraft move-
ment and may adversely
affect fish and wildlife habi-
European frog-bit resem-
bles a miniature water lily
(lily pad), with leaves about
the size of a quarter or half-
dollar. It produces a small
white flower, usually in June.
Frog-bit is typically found in
slow moving, shallow waters
(1-3 feet), typically within
cattail and bulrush stands.

to accommodate the pro-
gram. Jones lined up three
chapters of Pheasants
Forever Barry County,
Montcalm County and Grand
Valley to help with the
funding, and all that was left
was to recruit the gals.
It didnt take long. I could
have gotten 40, Brosier said.
Among those who signed
up was Alyssa Wethington, an
intern with the Gourmet
Gone Wild program, which is
designed to introduce folks
who are not from sporting
traditions to the outdoors by
exposing young profession-
als to wild game and fish
dishes. She brought her
grade-school pal Shakoor
Rohela, and the 22-year-olds
had their first hunting expe-
riences together.
The pair shot at and hit
a bird, but it sailed off into
the distance. When the crew
went to recover it, it flushed
again apparently no worse
for wear.
That just made Wethington
more determined.
This is something I hope
to do regularly, she said. I
like to eat food produced
locally, so if I can kill some-
thing and cook it up, thats
great. Thats as local as you
can get.
While Wethington and
Rohela were making their
first hunts, many of the
women were veterans of the
field having hunted deer
and turkey though they
hadnt hunted pheasants.
Trish Taylor, a public-rela-
tions professional from
Allegan, said she hunted rab-
bits as a youngster but,
despite being married to a
sportsman and owning a
pointing dog, had never
hunted upland birds.
Her husband was glad she
came, Taylor said, because he
wanted her to learn to hunt
but he didnt especially want
to take her because I never
listen to him, she said.
It was awesome, Taylor
said. Now I want to go to
North Dakota.
Similarly, Kathleen Kiester
of Dimondale had hunted
wild turkeys and deer, but
had never pointed the Model
12 Winchester she inherited
from her father at flying
birds. By the time the hunt
was finished, Kiester had
killed a pair of pheasants.
This is so much fun, she
said. Im just ecstatic. They
get up so fast and fly so hard.
This is so cool, Id love to do it
Thats a sentiment echoed
by virtually all the women at
the event. Rohela said the
experience was really, really
fun and Wethington said
shes going to keep doing
this until I get something.
Bachelder, whose husband
was away on business in
China, emailed him a picture
from her smartphone as
soon as it was taken.
This is cool, she said,
admitting that she was a little
bit surprised that she made
her shot. Its different than I
was expecting. I like the
walking around instead of
sitting in the deer blind.
DNR wildlife biologist John
Niewoonder gave a presenta-
tion at the event, explaining
how the DNR works and
about wildlife management
in general. He gave the par-
ticipants food for thought
about hunting as not only an
enjoyable pastime, but also a
vital part of Michigans natu-
ral resources conservation.
Jones was very pleased
with the way things went.
When I started at the DNR
I wasnt a hunter and some of
the guys showed me, said
the 33-year DNR veteran. I
was hoping to target single
moms and first-time hunters.
It worked out perfectly. We
had a lot of fun.
So much, in fact, that Jones
can hardly wait to get started
planning an event for next

ing in Michigan including
different species and season
opportunities, how to pur-
chase licenses, where to
hunt, and how to ensure its

The new Ford Fiesta equipped with the award-win-
ning 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine will be Americas most
fuel-efficient non-hybrid, gasoline-powered car with an
EPA-estimated rating of 45 mpg on the highway, topping
the EPA-estimated highway ratings of Honda Fit by 12
mpg and Toyota Yaris by 8 mpg.
The fuel economy rating not only establishes the
Fiesta 1.0-liter EcoBoost as best-in-class highway fuel
economy among subcompacts, but it also outperforms
some competitors diesels and hybrids on the highway
driving cycle. The 2014 Honda Insight has an EPA-esti-
mated rating of 44 mpg highway, while the 2014
Volkswagen Golf diesel with a manual transmission has
an EPA-estimated rating of 42 mpg highway. This also
makes the Fiesta the only car in its class that produces
more than 120 horsepower and has an EPA-estimated
rating of 45 mpg on the highway. Plus, while the 1.0-liter
EcoBoost engine is officially SAE-certified at 123 horse-
power and 125 lb.-ft. of torque, it features an overboost
function that allows it to make more than 145 lb.-ft. for
up to 15 seconds.
Coupled with the new Fiesta ST, Fiesta covers the
performance-efficiency continuum in the subcompact
segment better than any other nameplate in the mar-
ket, said Joe Hinrichs, executive vice president and
president of the Americas for Ford.
Fuel economy is often cited as the No. 1 purchase
consideration in the subcompact class, according to
Ford research. The EPA estimated rating of 45 mpg high-
way is for both the four- and five-door, five-speed man-
ual-equipped 2014 1.0-liter EcoBoost Fiesta, which also
has an EPA-estimated rating of 32 mpg city and 37 mpg
Automotive journalists named the 1.0-liter EcoBoost
engine in the 2014 Ford Fiesta International Engine of
the Year in 2012 and 2013. The smallest engine in the
growing EcoBoost family is increasingly the choice of
Ford customers in Europe, where it is now available on
five nameplates, accounting for 32 percent of Focus
sales and 26 percent of Fiesta sales this year. Robust
demand for the 1.0-liter in Europe prompted Ford to
double production capacity at its state-of-the-art
Cologne, Germany, plant to more than 1,000 engines a
EcoBoost technology combines smaller-displacement
engines with turbocharging, direct injection, variable
valve timing and proprietary Ford software to bring cus-
tomers outstanding performance and fuel economy.
Fords global EcoBoost engine family now includes the
1.0-liter three-cylinder; 1.5-liter, 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter
four-cylinder engines; and the powerful 3.5-liter V6
engine. EcoBoost technology is available in every region
Ford serves worldwide, and will be offered on approxi-
mately 80 percent of the companys global nameplates
by the end of this year.
Beyond the efficient new EcoBoost powerplant,
Fiestas aerodynamic design also helps save fuel. Along
with cruise control, the Manual EcoBoost Package on
the Fiesta SE adds a rear spoiler, side air deflectors,
underbody shields, lower grille blockers and low-rolling-
resistance tires that, together, decrease the amount of
fuel needed to push the car through the air at speed.
In addition to the new leadership claim for highway
fuel efficiency, the new Fiesta boasts an impressive suite
of technologies and features that gives drivers a blend of
a connected world and an untethered driving experi-
ence. A new SYNC with MyFord Touch system with
6.5-inch touch screen featuring enhanced voice control
is now available, providing drivers more options than
ever for directions, communication and entertainment
SYNC AppLink capabilities pioneered on the first
Fiesta continue to allow access and control of Ford-
approved smartphone apps through voice commands
and other controls for drivers on the go, helping them
keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Turn-by-turn directions remain part of SYNC Services.
Ford MyKey is a new feature for Fiesta. MyKey
enables parents in particular to encourage safer driving
and limit their teenagers exposure to risk at the wheel.
The system allows owners to configure maximum speed
and audio volume limits. It mutes audio until safety
belts are fastened and ensures driver aids, safety sys-
tems and more vigorous alerts cannot be deactivated
when used.

Lifestyle Choices
Bottom Line
Compliments of Ed Wohlfiel
When it comes to eventually moving into that dream
home you've always wanted, keep in mind that many
of the choices we make on a house are really driven by
lifestyle desires, rather than lifestyle needs.
More bedrooms means more time to clean, more
expensive to repaint and carpet/floor in the future. The
bigger the house and the larger the lot, the more you're
going to pay for it both in time and financial resources.
The main three decision factors are larger lot, more
space and more stuff. Each of these come with a price
Larger lot
Depending on the acreage, this is going to cost the
owner in regards to acquisition, monthly payment, and
upkeep. First is the acquisition. Larger lot means larg-
er price, thus larger down payment and monthly pay-
ment. In metropolitan areas, the closer in to the epi-
center of town, the more the extra space is going to
cost you. If you decide to get it cheaper by moving out
of town, then you'll be paying more for gas and be los-
ing the ever elusive minutes of your life.
A friend of mine is dying for a couple of acres. He's
moving into the area from a community where houses
with 2 acres are common and they are within minutes
of the job centers. No problem. In this market, howev-
er, it means possibly driving 30 miles or more for what
he's looking for. It also means a longer commute --
upwards to 90 minutes -- in morning and evening rush
hour. If that's 30 minutes longer per day than what he
does now, that's 2.5 hours per week longer on the road
-- folks that's 125 hours per year just on the road to
work and back per year -- MORE -- than living closer
in. (That's three weeks worth of working hours.)
The larger lot also means more upkeep. If you have
teenagers, maybe it's not your problem, you think with
a wry grin. Nevertheless, the larger lot that is cleared
off and landscaped will take longer to mow, require
more gas and possibly even more equipment. In addi-
tion, there's the landscaping that you may not have
needed to fret about before.
Even in a wooded lot, you'll now have to start watch-
ing the trees that border your house. A neighbor told
me before he was moving that he was spending about
$500 per year taking down trees that were threatening
his house. Once he did move, the new owners had a
tree fall on their home within a few weeks, causing
damage to the roof and patio.
More space
For most move up buyers, this is the No. 1 reason
they are shopping for a home. The 3-bedroom town-
house isn't cutting it for the growing family and it's
time for a yard. Let's get the 4th bedroom, or 4th bed-
room with a "bonus" room in the basement.
More space creates more expenses for paint, acces-
sories, flooring, etc., every time the room is repainted,
remodeled, etc. It's no rocket science calculation to see
that the 1,800 square foot home is going to be cheaper
to care for than the 2,800 square foot home.
Remember, percentage wise, we're talking 55 percent
more home which will interpret into 55 percent more
flooring cost, 55 percent more paint, 55 percent more
utilities, etc. When purchasing, don't forget to ask the
owner for a rundown of monthly or annual expenses
for upkeep of the property. (Most likely, it will be an
estimate, but a good indicator of your true costs of the
More stuff
Don't forget that once you get a larger place, it usu-
ally is compounded with a decision to replace older
furnishings or purchase new furnishings to put into
your new areas.
A recent home moving survey revealed that:
57 percent of owners and 37 percent of renters
bought furniture within the 12 weeks surrounding
their move; owners spent an average of $3,500 and
renters spent $1,220.
55 percent of moving homeowners purchase at least
one appliance when they move, and 57 percent of
homeowners buy furniture.
35 percent of owners and 40 percent of renters
bought bedding; of these individuals, 72 percent did so
within three after their move. Owners spent an average
of $420 and renters $240.
