A full-contact alumni football game between Washington Demon High School graduates and Mt. Pleasant Panther graduates is in the planning stages. The game was approved by the  Washington Community School Board at a meeting last week, a number of liability details have to be worked out with the company promoting the game and the school district before a full green light will be given. The Alumni Football USA company will put on the game, meaning that they provide liability insurance, pads, referees and an announcer. Washington  will keep 50-percent of the proceeds from their ticket sales.  Mt. Pleasant would get funds from advance ticket sales.

The game will take place on June 7th as part of the city of Washington’s 175th Anniversary Celebration.
