Godwin Heights on verge of ending 26-year playoff drought

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- Every year, 256 teams make the state playoffs, and for 26 years, Wyoming Godwin Heights hasn't been one of them.

"Man, that's a while. It'll be great, like we never had it," said senior running back Reggie Thompson.

Football had been a struggle for the perennial basketball powerhouse school. So much so that head coach Andy Dent decided to cancel the varsity season in 2012, to give the young team a chance to compete and rebuild a stronger program later.

"Our freshman then, now are seniors. These were the players that we rebuilt the program with. Coach Dent, I think that was the toughest decision he had to make as a coach," said assistant coach Jeff Corey, "And I'm here to tell you that was the best decision that Coach Dent has made."

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- We'll he's certainly paid his dues and then some.

Terry Lehigh is an employee at Country Fresh in Grand Rapids. On Thursday, he celebrated for 50 years of service. Lehigh says he first started working in the handpacking mill, back when they only sold half gallon containers in glass bottles.

Back then, the average production was 15, 000 half gallons versus the 120, 000 gallons they produce today.

"I went through this plant when I was twelve years old," said Lehigh. "I always remember going through the ice cream department and eating ice cream and thinking man, it would be great working at a place like that and making ice cream all the time and little did I know about six years later I'd be working here."

Terry is 69-years-old and says he still plans on working another two or three years.
