The North Branch football team is hosting a “Tackle Cancer” game Friday, 7 p.m., at the high school stadium. There will be donation cans around town in various supporting businesses, and they will be collecting donations at the game. A pregame show will begin at 6:45 p.m. spotlighting senior players and their favorite teachers plus a balloon release for all cancer warriors. At halftime, North Branch Area High School will be recognizing new inductees into the Hall of Fame.
Those who are unable to attend the high school football game can listen to the broadcast on WLKX 95.9 FM radio and at www.mnsportsnetwork.com. Saturday mornings there is a “Coach’s Clipboard” on the same station at 10 a.m.
