School Shows Support for Pickford Football Team Ahead of State Championship Game

The Pickford Panthers are gearing up for a Division 1 eight-man championship game Saturday morning in Marquette.

The school held a pep rally Friday morning as the team took off.

One anonymous donor picked up the tab for two buses to take people to the game. 

Pickford’s head coach says the support has been tremendous.

“It’s a small town and people have just been pouring in for support for them, and it’s encouraging for the players. It’s just been great spirit and excitement for the whole town,” said Coach Josh Rader

Onekama is also making an eight-man football state championship appearance.

Matthew Doyle will be there to talk to both teams before Saturday’s big game.

We will also have all the game highlights Saturday on 9&10 News at 11.
