North Central Marching Pep Band and football team playing the National Anthem and presenting the American flag before the game on Friday night.

The North Central Jets hosted the Baraga Knights in 8-man football action Friday, Sept. 23. The evening began with the North Central Pep Marching band playing the National Anthem and the football team displaying the large Stars and Stripes in a beautiful presentation. The flag was donated to North Central School by Bill Krachinski. Krachinski, a U.P. native and dairy farmer from Perronville, stated he purchased the 15 x 30 flag with the intentions of flying it in Indiana where he lived at the time, shortly after his brother in law returned home from the Iraq war. Unfortunately, due to its enormous size and the homeowner association rules that dream was put on hold. He then moved back to the U.P. and has stored this flag for the last 10 + years hoping to someday find a good use for it. As luck would have it, Joey Pontbriand, North Central Athletic Director was in search of a big flag for the players to show some good old fashion U.S.A pride and spirit and posted his request on facebook. Bill Krachinski saw the post and instantly knew he found a good use for his patriotic purchase. The team practiced folding and handling the flag before making its big debut on Friday, September 23. Plans are to make this flag a part of their home game tradition for both the football and basketball seasons. In a time when many professional athletes are taking a knee during our National Anthem, these awesome athletes are reminding us that Patriotism is alive and well. Thank you to all that have contributed to this wonderful story and a fabulous ending to a 10 year old flag never before flown! HAUNT ON THE HILL- T HEY ’ RE B ACK !
