Better slot for all-star game

Last season, the timing couldn't have been worse in terms of the date of the annual Michigan High School Football Coaches Association All-Star game.
Due to a scheduled U-2 concert (that was eventually postponed to this summer) at Spartan Stadium, the coaches association had to change the date of the all-star game, and the only Saturday available was the same day as the state finals in baseball, softball and girls soccer.
Obviously, this wasn't good for families that had kids playing both in the football all-star game or in the championships of the aforementioned sports, and there was little media coverage of the game since most of the state's media were rightfully focused on the state finals.
This year, the coaches association made a nice adjustment.
The game was moved to Central Michigan so it could take place this Saturday, a week after the finals for baseball, softball, girls soccer and boys golf.
The game will have all the attention of media since it's now summer and there's no risk of families being torn as to which of their kids games to attend, should a family have a kid in the all-star game or playing for a state title in on of the other sports.
