Farmington Hills Harrison is a school steeped in football tradition. The last few years, the Hawks have not made a serious state title run, but that could change this year.
One of the key players for this season is rising junior receiver Aaron Burbridge, who is looking to carry on the tradition set by past Harrison standouts who went on to play college ball like Mill Coleman and Mark Dell.
"I talk to Mark and I know Mill," Burbridge said. "I go to some of Mill's camps. Michigan State (where both Dell and Coleman went) has sent me letters, but I haven't been up there to talk to anybody yet though."
The 6'1, 180-lb Burbridge had 46 receptions for 752 yards and eight touchdowns as a sophomore, prompting a host of college interest. However, he did not go to any summer camps this year, meaning the interest has just been in the form of letters.
"I get letters from a lot of schools. Penn State, Iowa and Michigan. They invited me to camps and stuff and told me to fill out questionnaires and send them back to them."
Burbridge says he has played some cornerback, but is starting only at wideout and that is where he is expected to play at the next level.
It is at that spot, that his track speed will make him a big play threat.
"I run the 400 and 200, the 4x4 and 4x2. My best 200 time is 22 flat and best 400 is 49 flat."
