    2015 Detroit Free Press All-West

    1st Team

    DL: Ryan Tracy, senior (captain), 6 feet, 260 pounds.

    Highlights: Tracy had 65 tackles, 10 for loss, and four sacks. Tracy also played tight end at midseason and made a huge impact on the running game for the state semifinalists. “He was there to block and get the edge for us,” coach Chris Kelbert said. “He’s the kid that put in hours and hours in the weight room in the summer to be the best he could be, and it worked out for him.”

    OL: Josh Retting, senior, 6-2, 241.

    Highlights: Retting was the anchor of the line for a team that reached the state semifinals and rushed for more than 4,900 yards, a school record. Coach Chris Kelbert said: “Josh was our team leader on the line, both sides, our best two-way lineman. A very intelligent student and football player.” The team captain made 46 tackles, seven for loss.

    Offensive Line

    Josh Retting, 6-2, 240, Sr., Livonia Franklin: Retting was a dominant two-way lineman, leading Franklin to a Division 2 regional title. Retting also had 46 tackles on defense, six for loss. "Josh is very hard working and very smart," Coach Chris Kelbert said. "His leadership has been a big part of a line that has 4,545 yards rushing this season."


    Jake Giacobbi, 5-10, 150, Jr., Livonia Franklin: Giacobbi had an excellent season as a kicker (6-of-7 field goals, 45-of-48 PATs) and doubled as a punter, averaging 35 yards a kick. "Jake has great athletic ability which makes him a triple threat for us," said coach Chris Kelbert of Giacobbi, who kicked a 42-yard field goal this season. "He leads our team not only in kicking stats, but in receiving as well."

    Coach of the Year

    Chris Kelbert, Livonia Franklin: Kelbert, in his 15th season at Franklin, guided the school to a Division 2 regional championship before a semifinal loss to eventual state champion Detroit King. The Patriots were picked to finish 10th in the 12-team Kensington conference. They started 2-3 before a hot streak that didn't end until the Final Four.
