DETROIT (AP) — New quarterback, same result for Grand Rapids South Christian Friday in the Division 4 Michigan state title game.

For most of the year, the school won with John Wassink flinging the ball all over the field. But Wassink broke his collarbone in its semifinal win over Comstock last week, forcing senior Derek Woltjer to take over for the championship game.

Woltjer ran for 136 yards and two touchdowns and threw for two more scores and Grand Rapids South Christian beat Detroit Country Day 40-7 on Friday night at Ford Field.

"When I come in, we run the ball a ton," Woltjer said. "The offensive line and everybody knows that."

And when he did throw the ball he was perfect, completing all seven of his the passes for 88 yards.

"We've just been hungry for it," Woltjer said of the state crown. "We knew we had the talent and we knew we couldn't lose."

The Sailors finished the season 11-3. Country Day coach Dan McLean said he "didn't recognize us out there."

Woltjer who is also a flanker and defensive back, even intercepted a pass and returned it for 28 yards. He said coach Mark Tamminga called him last Saturday night and told him he would be starting in place of Wassink at Ford Field.

"I felt excited. I felt sorry that Jon couldn't play. He was one of the biggest parts of our team," Woltjer said.

He also said Tamminga also told him that everything wasn't on his shoulders and that Woltjer should just go out and play his game.

But his game totally changed Grand Rapids South Christian's game. The Sailors had thrown for almost 2,700 yards in its first 13 games but racked up 291 yards on the ground Friday.

Chad Sterk also rushed for 112 yards on 11 carries.

Leading 14-7 at halftime, the Sailors blew the game open in the third quarter with three touchdowns in less than 6 minutes.

Woltjer's 20-yard touchdown pass to Austin Diekevers with 7:54 left made it 21-7 after Kyle Haan's extra point.

Country Day could then only return Haan's kickoff to its own 10 and a penalty for an illegal block pushed the Yellowjackets back to their 5.

And after a three and out, Matt McLean punted to Sterk, who caught the ball on the Country Day 31, headed for the left sideline, turned the corner and raced into the end zone to make it 27-7 with 6:26 remaining in the third quarter. Haan's extra-point attempt was blocked.

Woltjer then capped the spurt with a 69-yard TD run with 2:24 left in the third.

The Sailors failed on a two-point conversion attempt and the score remained 33-7.

Diekevers completed the scoring with a 6-yard touchdown run with 8 minutes left.
