Are you ready for some football?

By Judy Reed

We all need something to brighten our week and here it is—the Cedar Springs Red Hawks kick off another exciting football season Thursday night (tonight) by hosting Saginaw Swan Valley at Red Hawk Stadium at 7 p.m. And this year, fans get to see the games in person!

Next week they will tackle the Rockford Rams for the first time in many years in a non-conference matchup in Rockford.

Last year the team began a new schedule in the OK Gold, after a conference realignment. Teams in the conference include GR Catholic Central, Forest Hills Eastern, Kenowa Hills, Ottawa Hills, South Christian, Middleville Thornapple-Kellogg, and Wayland. 

The Post asked Coach Gus Kapolka what the team’s biggest challenge will be this season, and what he feels is the team’s strength. “Our biggest challenge is coming closer together as a team and striving to improve daily,” he said. 

“The strength of our team is our offensive line. We return four starters from last year’s team including two all state players in Cameron Heiss and Josh Kreikaard.”

Last season, fans were limited due to COVID regulations. Coach Kapolka had this to say all of the Red Haw fans looking forward to attending this season. “Cedar Springs has been and will always be a ‘Football Town.’ It is a truly magical place on Friday nights in the fall.  I can’t wait to get Red Hawk Stadium Rocking again on Thursday against Swan Valley.”

Tickets will be sold at the gate. See you at the game!
