This year the JPHC Rocket Football league played there “Championship Series” football Games at “Top Taggert Field” in Big Rapids at Ferris State University.
The weather was typical Michigan fall football weather and we saw some very “High” Level Middle school being played on in Big Rapids for bragging rights for this year’s title teams.
The 7th Grade Champion was Clare over Meridian, the 8th Grade Champion was Gladwin in a classic battle with Meridian and in the Consolation game for 8th saw Clare emerging as the winner in a game that featured a down pour of ran. The fans and parents that braved the weather were also commended for making their presents felt. The event ran smooth and we had a lot of compliments as well regarding our league being one of the premier middle school leagues in the state. I personally want to Thank all the Coaches and League Directors as well on make this League a class act and looking forward to the future.
