DAYTON — Adam Trautman ended his record setting career as an Elk Rapids quarterback on Halloween in 2014 in a playoff loss at Boyne City.

Small schools in northern Michigan tend to be overlooked by the bigger colleges, including Trautman, who was not looked at by bigger colleges, despite his many records, along with earning first team all-conference as a junior and senior, and being voted the league MVP as a senior in a unanimous decision.
