This month’s edition features the Muskegon High School football team, which recently recorded its historic 800th victory. Coach Shane Fairfield talks about what it takes to keep the winning tradition alive in a football program that dates back to 1895.

The magazine also spotlights new Muskegon Lumberjacks owner Dan Israel, a Bloomfield businessman who bought the team over the summer and is determined to make it a financial success.

Local Sports Journal the magazine features a cover shot of the Muskegon Big Reds taking the field back on Sept. 11 when the team secured the school's 800 football win. Tim Reilly got the goods on the photo.
