No varsity football team this fall in Ishpeming
There are not enough players to field a squad.
ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - Ishpeming High School will not have a varsity football team this season.
A school official told TV6 Tuesday afternoon there are not enough players to field a squad. The Ishpeming Board of Education approved a plan nearly a month ago to field a team despite having nine juniors and one senior. Underclassmen would have been elevated to the varsity team to make the numbers better.
The Hematites also did not have a varsity coach named after George Niemi resigned several months ago.
Ishpeming will have a junior varsity football team this fall.
