DETROIT - Cass Tech proved why its the top-ranked team in the state Friday night, cruising to a 44-0 win over Detroit Renaissance in the Meijer Game of the Week.
The Technicians flooded the end zone in the first quarter. William White kicked off the scoring with a ten-yard touchdown to make it 7-0.
Sophomore quarterback Jayru Campbell took over from there. Three touchdown passes in the first half led to a running clock before the break.
Campbell connected on a TD pass with senior wide receiver DaQuan Pace for 25 yards on the Technicians second drive. In Cass Tech's first three offensive plays, they scored two touchdowns.
Moments later, Campbell dropped a dump pass off to University of Michigan recruit Jourdan Lewis, who did the rest of the work. 18 yards later, it was 20-0.
The hero of the 2011 season as just a freshman, Campell looks bigger and stronger in his second season in charge of the offense.
Notes: At halftime, Cass Tech senior offensive tackle David Dawson was presented with his Under Armour All-American jersey.
Wyandotte Roosevelt beat Trenton 42-7. Farmington held off Southfield Lathrup 39-12. Grosse Pointe South topped Fraser 17-10. Brother Rice beat Toledo St. Francis 42-24. Port Huron defeated Anchor Bay 47-9.
