Greatest Games Returns Friday With A Negaunee Classic!


10/22/2020 Negaunee, MI –

With the Negaunee vs Westwood game being cancelled this Thursday, Sunny 101.9 will again dig in to our archive and continue our “Greatest Games” series.

Negaunee Miners on the field!

This Friday October 23rd, 2020 we will take you back to the night of October 29th, 2010 for one of the biggest wins in recent Negaunee Football history.


2010 was a bit of an up and down year for The Miners, but at 5 and 4 on the season Negaunee received one of the final MHSAA playoff spots in Division 6.  The reward?  Travel to Elk Rapids just north of Traverse City to take on the top overall seed the Elk Rapids Elks.

Negaunee does battle against Manistique from August of 2011

It’s a game that features it all!  Back and forth scoring, a late Negaunee touchdown and 2 point conversion followed by a defensive stand with 18 seconds left by the Miners to lock up the upset!

Mark Evans and Gregg Nelson were the voices of the Miners then as they are today!  We hope you’ll enjoy this trip in to the past, and one of the most exciting nights ever for Negaunee Football!
