DETROIT (WWJ) – The 94-year playoff drought is over for the Wayne State University football team. Despite an overtime loss Saturday to finish the regular season at eight-and-three, the Warriors have made it to the Division Two playoffs — for the first time EVER. Head coach Paul Winters says they’ve been able to recruit solid players–and keep them.

“The biggest thing that we’ve done is we’ve retained our players — guys that come in, stay there,” Winters said. “We have, I think, 18 fifth-year seniors on this year’s team, and that’s obviously a big deal.”

Twenty-four teams make the Division Two postseason each year. The Warriors head to St. Cloud, Minnesota to face the Huskies Saturday afternoon.

Go Warriors!
