Let Them Play Michigan Statement February 4, 2021
In response to the order issued today regarding winter high school contact sports in the state, Let Them Play Michigan attorney Peter Ruddell of Honigman LLP issued the following statement:
“Let Them Play Michigan appreciates Director Hertel’s efforts to move this important issue forward in a timely manner. The lack of high school sports has had a negative impact on young people all around this state and we are confident that sports can resume safely with precautions in place.
