The Wheel Deal

Five of DeKeyser's picks to win on the high school gridiron this weekend are (clockwise from upper left): Clintondale Dragons; Utica Chieftains; De La Salle Pilots; Eisenhower Eagles; and New Haven Rockets.

DETROITDanny DeKeyser didn’t play high school football, but as a junior at Warren De La Salle, he and his friends enjoyed cheering on their classmates on fall Fridays.

“It was a lot of fun and it gave my buddies and me something to do on Friday nights,” the Red Wings’ rookie defenseman said. “It was always a good time.”

It’s been a few years since he rooted for the Pilots from the metal bleachers, but that didn’t stop DeKeyser from accepting a challenge this week from the Macomb Daily.

DeKeyser gladly agreed to be the newspaper’s guest prognosticator for Week 5 of the high school football season in Michigan. He was asked to pick the winners of 10 games in Macomb County this weekend.

Hopefully, DeKeyser is a better pigskin prophet than Mark Hackel, the county executive for Macomb County, who correctly selected seven of 10 games last week.

DeKeyser’s picks are BOLD, including his obvious prediction for his alma mater. “Yeah, pretty much always La Salle,” he said.
