Announcements and Important Events
Grand Ledge, MI – When a local high school team wins a state championship, the entire community celebrates. Twenty years later, the celebration continues!
Grand Ledge will host and honor members of the 2000 state championship football team tonight at the home-opener varsity football game against Jackson. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m.
Players and their immediate families were invited to a catered pregame meal at the stadium followed by recognition of the team members and coaches at halftime of the varsity game. Last season was the 20th-anniversary of the championship, but the recognition was delayed because of the pandemic.
The 2000 football team finished the season 13-1 and won the MHSAA Division 1 State Championship -- the only football state championship in school history. Grand Ledge defeated Utica Eisenhower in a thrilling 19-14 game at the Silverdome to win the title. The team was led by legendary football and baseball coach Pat O'Keefe.
