Name: Michelle Forster Armstrong

Hometown: Royal Oak

Connection: Son Jon Forster, #80, is a backup quarterback who was called up from the junior varsity team midseason.

Favorite moment from the season: "Right now, it's this one. This is a big deal. It's very exciting."

What makes Brother Rice special? "Brother Rice has a certain standard and our sons are learning what that standard is. They're a part of something bigger than themselves.
