Local Sports Journal

Our local high school football players and coaches work extremely hard to represent their schools and the Muskegon/Ottawa/Oceana area. From hot, sweaty workouts in the dog days of August to playing in the wet and cold of October, they give it their all.

That’s why, four years ago, we at Local Sports Journal started publishing our annual Muskegon area high school football preseason newspaper section, a beloved tradition started decades ago by the old Muskegon Chronicle.

Last year, dozens of local businesses purchased ads in our football section (pictured to the right) to help keep the tradition alive. We’re already busy planning the 2015 edition – with a full page preview for every local team – and we’re looking for more publishing partners.

For $25, businesses or organizations can be listed as a supporters of the high school team of their choice. For a special price of $100, the listing can go on all 19 team pages.

Football families and friends can also play a role. For $25 we can publish a personal shout out to your favorite player on your favorite team, in your own words.

To order an inexpensive ad, contact Jason Goorman at (231) 638-7307. To order by email, please send your name and a contact number to [email protected]

Our local prep football teams provide us with a lot of excitement and pride every fall. What other area has so many teams in the state finals, year after year? Last year it was Muskegon Catholic, Muskegon and Mona Shores. This year, who knows?

So please purchase an inexpensive ad or personal notice in our 2015 football section this year, and help give all the players and coaches the kickoff they deserve!
