Dexter is a village in Washtenaw County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The majority of the village is in the northwest corner of Scio Township with a small portion (approximately 200 homes) in Webster Township. The population was 2,338 at the 2000 census. The Census Bureau puts its population at 3,242 as of the official 2006 estimate. There is no political connection between the Village of Dexter and the nearby Township of Dexter, which is located to the northwest of the municipality. Both, however, were named for Judge Samuel William Dexter (son of Samuel Dexter, the early American statesman)[1], who, in 1824, became the first person to purchase land in what is now Dexter village.

Sports

Home of Detroit Tigers Brandon Inge, the Dreadnaughts have proven to be a superb athletic powerhouse with front runners Kevin McLaughlin, Frankie Mcauliff, Bennett Washabaugh and Derek Ager leading the fearsome Dreadnaught golf team. On more important matters, QB Jeff Zielger, WR's Jacob Stoll and Corey Beneke lead the Dreads to their first winning record in 60 years. Ziegler, now playing colleigate football at Eastern Michigan University lead the SEC in passing, while Stoll and Beneke totaled 16 touchdowns at the end of senior year. DB Justin Pisano finished the season with an interception against Willow Run to cap off the dreads amazing season. Unfortunately, Dexter met Belleville in the first round of the MHSAA playoffs. The Dreadnaughts would lose the game handily, mostly due to the superp play of Adam Wald. The senior cornerback/wide reciever single handily ended the Dreadnaught's dream season. He consistently beat Justin Pisano on routes racking up 251 receving yards and 4 touchdown scores. He proceeded by kicking all four PATs barefoot, adding insult to injury. On defense, Wald grabbed 3 interceptions returning 1 for a touchdown, doing the soulja-boy dance as a celebration. He limited Stoll and Beneke to only 4 total receptions, delivering bone-crushing hits anytime they caught the ball. On one particular play, Wald gave a helmet to helmet shot to Stoll, giving him a severe concussion. Many suspect that this could be the reason Stoll only got an 11 on his ACT, a score 2 points lower than the historic low score set by one Belleville native. After the game, Wald delivered a message to the Dexter's golf team. Legend has it, he drove a golf ball 600 yards with his 8-iron, and the ball hit golf team captain Kevin McLaughlin in his right temple severely injuring the Broca's area of his brain a week before the state championship match. McLaughlin would shoot a state-record 61 at Pine Hurst Golf Course, but was required to state his score at the end of the game for his score to count. The brain damage had led him to only understand speech, not produce it. Because McLaughlin could not state his score, it was erased from the records and Dexter was forced to forfeit the state championship. Many Dexter residents still wonder what could have been if the greatness of Adam Wald would not have ended their dream seasons with his spectacular skill and grace.
