ALLENDALE, Mich -- The Muskegon football team has adopted the motto "little things matter" this season, following last year's one-point loss in the state championship game.

"Last year, we got the motto from the last-game championship game we lost within like two seconds," senior linebacker Ali'vonta Wallace said. "We emphasize on the last second, because you never know what happened. Little things."

The Big Reds will face Farmington Hills Harrison Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the championship. Hawks head coach John Herrington became the state's all-time leader in wins earlier this season.

"I've been blessed and honored to have been able to coach against several legends, like this with coach Herrington," Muskegon head coach Shane Fairfield said. "In my short head coaching career here at this level eight years, I get to go against a guy with the history and the respect in our coaching profession."

Muskegon is the state's all-time leader in wins, while Harrison has the most state titles, this is their first ever football meeting.
