(Please see our full VIDEO JOURNAL of this story at the weblink following the story).

The DSC partnered with Detroit PAL to spruce up the football field that is home to the PAL Broncos’ youth football program.

The DSC along with players and coaches from Birmingham Brother Rice; Cass Tech; Oak Park; Orchard Lake St. Mary’s and Southfield high school football teams and players and coaches from the PAL Broncos’ program leveled uneven portions of the field, dropped new top soil, planted seed and painted the goalposts, equipment shed and blocking sled.
