The annual clash between the Traverse City Central and West High Schools is more than just an exciting football game. It’s an event to honor those who answered the call to serve our country. Many men and women, who at one time had their feet on Thirlby Field, once had or now have their feet on foreign soil while serving in the United States military.

This game honors their service, along with police and firefighters who put their lives on the line to keep our communities safe.

Active duty military, Veterans, and first responders are invited to attend a pre-game Tailgate Party and are then invited to come down to the field for a pre-game ceremony to recognize their service.

Commemorative 7th Annual TC Patriot Game t-shirts will be available for purchase at area car dealerships and both schools. The proceeds from the 2018 t-shirt sales will benefit the Warrior Sailing Program, an organization whose mission is to use sailing as a platform to positively impact wounded, ill and injured service members’ and veterans’ physical and mental health while reconnecting them with the camaraderie and teamwork previously found in military service.

Join us for the 7th Annual TC Patriot Game!
