The Altoona Mirror has the full story on the East West game going to Friday night this year in order the make a better weekend of football as it’s coupled with the Big 33 game on Saturday.

“Had we continued to play on Saturday, we would have been on the same night as the Big 33 game,” East West game director John Hayes said. “From everybody’s standpoint, we wanted to avoid as much conflict as possible.”

Gary Gouse of Portage, whose Mustangs made it to the District 6 Class A championship game, has been named as an assistant coach.

There’s also a great list of talented players that will take part in the game, including Jeremiah Young of Steelton-Highspire, the state’s all-time rushing leader.
