Detroit King quarterback Dequan Finn was selected as State Champs’ Mr. Football award winner for 2018.
Finn showed his dual-threat ability by throwing for four touchdowns and running for another score in the 41-25 Division 3 state-championship game win over No. 3 Muskegon last Saturday night at Ford Field.
Finn threw for 2,104 yards and 25 touchdowns his senior year, and he also rushed for 1,264 yards (14.5 yard average) and 21 TDs, helping King earn its third state championship in the last four years. Two were with him as quarterback.
Finn is a Central Michigan commitment, but hasn't announced if Friday's firing of coach John Bonamego will change his mind.
