FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - Beecher’s head coach Mike Williams lost his father, Charles Williams Jr., to COVID about a year ago, during the season coach wasn’t mourning alone. Buc’s star Keyon Menifield Jr. lost his grandfather around the same time.

The tragedy brought the coach and player closer together and helped propel them to a state championship.
