Detroit Country Day School students and alumni love the school, and the football parents love and support their Yellowjackets. While the team played on the field, Patch went into the stands to tell the stories of the parents who help make everything possible.
Name: Veda and Pete Thomas
The furthest distance that their family of 45 drove to watch Poet play: 1,217 miles (Ft. Worth, TX)
Pre-game plan: "The d-line has to shut 'em down. If they do that and the quarterback, running back, and wide receiver is on-point, they should have a good chance to win."
Senior season: "Oh yes, it's very exciting for Poet to be here in his senior season. He loves the school and his team and he wants to go out with a bang."
