WARREN — Officials from Warren De La Salle Aug. 1 announced the Pilots’ football team will play its 2014 home games at Wayne State University.

The announcement detailed that De La Salle, which played its home contests at St. Clair Shores Lake Shore last season, will likely be the only prep football team to play its home games inside an NCAA stadium.

“Wayne State’s facility is a premiere NCAA Division (II) field,” said De La Salle Athletic Director Brian Kelly in the release. “Our football players, as well as those of the visiting teams, will be able to play in a big-game atmosphere on one of the finest campuses in the state.

“The location is a 20-minute drive via expressway from (De La Salle) and affords those alumni and other fans of De La Salle football the opportunity to watch some of the best high school football in the state of Michigan at a large and comfortable stadium.”

The Warriors’ stadium has a capacity of about 6,000, according to the website stadiumsusa.com. Tom Adams field at WSU will also be the site of the 2014 Prep Kickoff Classic Aug. 28-30.
