February 27, 2015

In this week's edition of MHSAA Perspective, John Johnson talks about the 1949 Coldwater High School boys basketball team, which won the Class B title and changed the way the game was played.

Now in its 10th season, the radio commentary MHSAA Perspective – presented by the Amber Alert Foundation – airs on over 80 radio stations and audio outlets across the state, generally during the local broadcasts of high school games. The program runs for 30 weeks through the end of the winter sports season.
