Football players from the Catholic High School League, including teams from throughout metro Detroit and beyond, gathered on Ford Field on August 19, but not to play football.  They gathered to pray the rosary together. And our own EC Mountaineers were among them. Our players were even featured in the article about the event in the Michigan Catholic newspaper.  To read the story, including more photos, go to the following link:
