PLYMOUTH â€” The 2007 State Champion Plymouth Pilgrims â€” voted the Pilot Newsâ€™ â€śBest of the Decade in High School Sportsâ€ť â€” were a team on a mission.
With several members of the 2005 state runner-up squad still on the team, there was a unique sense of destiny in the locker room. They seemed to know it was going to happen.
â€śIâ€™m pretty sure the seniors thought weâ€™d do it all year long,â€ť said Jason Renz, a senior on the 2007 team. â€śChad (Clinton), Randy (Davis) and I were all on the 2005 team that lost on the half court shot by Luke Zellers. We felt like we were good enough to do it.â€ť
