    Column: Zeeland West 38-2 under chameleon quarterbac...

    EAST KENTWOOD Zeeland West football coach John Shillito asked quarterback Casey Brinks to play defense this week when the Dux began preparing for Saturday's Division 4 state semifinal game against Forest Hills Eastern. The Dux, who defeated FHE 46-8 to advance to Friday's 7:30 p.m. state championship game vs. Flint Powers Catholic at Detroit's Ford Field, don't often call on Brinks to play D. In fact, the senior hasn't played defense since Zeeland West's victory over Byron Center on Oct. 9. Do you know what the best part about playing defense was for Brinks during Saturday's game, which was voted the MLive Grand Rapids Press Game of the Week? It could have been his two interceptions.

    Grand Haven's Knoll happy to still be playing

    Grand Haven senior volleyball standout Ally Knoll didn't know if she would be playing in a district title game this year, in fact, she didn't know if she'd ever play the sport she loved again.
