County athletes shine at Saturday's 31st-Annual MHSFCA All-Star game

Perhaps spurred on by the fact that he'll be playing his college ball at Central Michigan University, Farmington's Jason Wilson rose above all other Saturday at the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association East-West All-Star game.
Playing against some of the best seniors in the state, Wilson caught three passes for 136 yards, including a pair of long TD catches from Detroit Cass Tech quarterback Keith Moore in the East team's 30-13 win over the West. The best part about Wilson's standout performance was that it came at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. Wilson will return to Mt. Pleasant on Monday to begin his career as a Chippewa.
Wilson wasn't the only county player to make an impact on the all-star game, Auburn Hills Avondale's Ray Tillman caught a touchdown pass himself, a 55-yarder, in the third quarter. His score helped the East take a 23-7 lead, and essentially pull away for the win.
Other county players to play in the game were Nate Theaker of Lakeland, Justin D’Agostino of Novi Detroit Catholic Central, Tommy Vento of Farmington Hills Harrison, Loran Jaddou of Birmingham Brother Rice, Terrell Porter of Berkley, Randle Brewer of Walled Lake Western, Blake McGhee of Lake Orion, Bryan Bell of Walled Lake Central, Spencer Cairo of Rochester Adams and Cody Gorman of Clawson.
