The First Gridiron Classic 2012

Newly remodeled Eisenhower helmet.

As rumors have circled around the Oakland and Macomb Counties for months that there would be two games at Ford Field in week 2 of the upcoming football season.  There has finally been some clarification and solid verification.

At Ford Field, which is home to the Detroit Lions on Friday, August 31st there will be a doubleheader.  The first game is between Lake Orion (Division 1 State Champs in 2010) against Troy Athens at 5:45.

The second game is between Eisenhower and Henry Ford II, the two MAC Red opponents will kickoff at 8:15, following the conclusions of the Lake Orion and Athens game.

Athens and Lake Orion play against one another in the OAA Red while Eisenhower and Henry Ford II play in the MAC Red.

The event is sponsored by Compton Strategies who has executed these type of events but from Indianapolis.  More information will be provided in the future but you will need to follow @TheD_Zone on Twitter to see it first.

Tickets will be set at $10.00 in advance.
