This Week in High School Sports: 1/13/17
January 13, 2017
The latest edition of "This Week In High School Sports" leads with a feature on Alpena's efforts to teach athletes life skills, discusses a new free throw rule in its "Be The Referee" segment and finishes with an MHSAA Perspective on false promises behind costly events alleging to give athletes "college exposure."
The 5-minute program, powered by MI Student Aid, leads off each week with feature stories from around the state from the MHSAA’s Second Half or network affiliates. "Be The Referee," a 60-second look at the fine art of officiating, comes in the middle of the show; and is followed by a closing MHSAA "Perspective."
