GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (GRPS) — The scheduled home football game between Ottawa Hills and Thornapple Kellogg has been canceled and rescheduled for Saturday morning.

The game was called off at the request of Thornapple Kellogg school leaders who said rumors at their school prompted safety concerns.

The teams will now face off on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. at Houseman field. Limited tickets will be distributed through players and coaches.

“We were disappointed to learn of the request to cancel tonight’s game as our scholars and fans were looking forward to a fun Friday night game of football,” said Larry Johnson, Grand Rapids Public Schools’ Chief of Staff and Executive Director of Public Safety and School Security. “Safety comes before everything else, so when there’s a concern we take it seriously. We look forward to the matchup Saturday morning.”
