Donovan Peoples-Jones named The D Zone 2016 Michigan Player of the Year




Every year there are players who tear it up on the gridiron, but the past 6 years we have been able to find a player each year who takes his game up to the next level.  These six other players were: Valdez Showers of Madison Heights, Prescott Line of Oxford, Drake Harris of Grand Rapids Christian, Travis Smith of Ithaca, Mike Weber of Cass Tech, and Donnie Corley of Detroit King who were unstoppable the past 6 seasons.

The D Zone has selected Cass Tech senior Wide Receiver, Donovan Peoples-Jones as our 2016 Player of the Year. Donovan Peoples-Jones teamed alongside a starting line-up full of Division 1 recruits and rallied around a strong Senior class to finish the season 14-0 which was the first time that Cass Tech accomplished that feat.  Donovan Peoples-Jones finished his senior season with 52 receptions for 1,007 yards, and 17 touchdowns.  On the defensive side of the ball he had 4 interceptions and 2 defensive touchdowns, on top of 3 punt return touchdowns.   Cass Tech devoured their school record of points scored in a season with 619, the previous high was 527 points in 2015.

Donovan Peoples-Jones emerged onto the scene as a Freshman, but really didn't make a big impact until his Sophomore season.  During his Sophomore season he was injured and missed games such as Cass' loss to Saline in the semi-finals.  In his Junior season it became abundantly clear that Donovan Peoples-Jones had great potential to be the #1 receiver in the country.  Donovan Peoples-Jones dominant performance in the semi's vs. Canton where there was a foot of snow featured double-digit receptions and nearly 200 receiving yards.

In Donovan Peoples-Jones senior season he was doing everything very good up until final minute vs. Eisenhower where Peoples-Jones really cemented his legacy from there on out.  With .24 seconds remaining in the game, Donovan Peoples-Jones made perhaps one of the most athletic and talented plays anyone from Michigan has seen in their lifetime as Peoples-Jones twisted and fell back to the ground, securing the game-winning touchdown that lifted Cass Tech past #2 Eisenhower.

In the state championship vs. previously undefeated Catholic Central, no one could prevent Donovan Peoples-Jones from turning short receptions into 1st downs, a diving catch, and 2 touchdowns that provided the last cheers of a career that is only touching the potential of what's to come of Donovan Peoples-Jones.  His final touchdown reception with 6 minutes in a 49-14 lead would be his final high school play.

We sincerely congratulate Donovan Peoples-Jones on a great Senior season and wish nothing but the best of luck for his future endeavors.
