MICHIGAN CITY — The first time Roy Richards saw Jahari Branch in the hallway at Michigan City High School last year, the Wolves defensive coordinator did a double take

“I couldn’t believe he was a freshman, by the looks of him physically,” Richards said. “I stopped him so I could find out who he was and if he wanted to play football. If we weren’t in virtual in the fall, I would have been able to meet him earlier and gotten him on the frosh team. He was polite and respectful and I immediately knew he would be special.”
