Detroit – The idea is unique and could be trend-setting.

Detroit Cornerstone’s boys basketball program is a member of the MHSAA this season, it’s first in existence. Next season, on the other hand, might be a different story.

Jason McGowan, Cornerstone’s coach, envisions his program eventually, maybe as early as next year, leaving the ranks of the MHSAA and playing a “prep school-type” schedule, traveling the country squaring off against other high-profile non-state regulated squads instead of playing a normal schedule against other local teams.

“The MHSAA is old-school, we want to be new-school,” he said. “The idea is to get kids as much exposure as possible so they can earn scholarships to college. That's the ultimate goal for us.”
