Monday's Local Sports Coverage (8/19)

Posted: Updated:

Another day closer to the start of the 2013 high school football season and our team preview train is still rolling.  Kalkaska was a playoff team in 2013 and quarterback Will Noble has three years experience under center.  The Blazers expect to have continued success this year under head coach Jeremy Wilkinson. 

We also have previews of McBain, Manton, Kingsley and Grayling.

Finally, there is a new bowl game in town.  The Mid-American Conference announced on Monday the creation of the Camellia Bowl, a newly established bowl game to begin in 2014, which will be based in Montgomery, Ala. and owned and operated by ESPN.
