DETROIT (AP) -- Devin Church ran for 244 yards and three touchdowns as Birmingham Brother Rice beat Lowell 24-14 for its first Division 2 state title since 2005 Friday at Ford Field.
The Warriors won the title despite going 5-4 in the regular season.
Church made it 7-0 with a 7-yard run in the first quarter, but Lowell tied it when Gabe Dean hit Luke Bigham for an 18-yard score on fourth down.
Church then faked a reverse before going around left end for a 54-yard score with 50 seconds left in the half.
Jason Alessi's 26-yard field goal increased the Warriors lead to 17-7 midway through the third quarter, and Eddie Kidd's interception of Dean's pass set up Church's third touchdown.
Dean hit Bigham for a 9-yard pass for the final score.
