FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- Seniors Mario Ojemudia and Devin Funchess (Farmington Hills, Mich./Harrison) have played football together since grade school and will continue to be teammates -- at the University of Michigan in the fall.
But that doesn't stop them from taunting one another. One of the biggest taunts? Ojemudia was once taller than Funchess -- and he doesn't let him forget it, not since Funchess outgrew Ojemudia in eighth grade.
Funchess, a 6-foot-4 tight end who is the more outgoing of the two, likes to remind Ojemudia that he's bigger now by talking trash during practice. But Ojemudia, who at 6-2 is considered undersized to play both ways on the line, counters Funchess with the fact that he is still tougher on the field.
