The Macomb Area Conference will hold its media day at 3 p.m. Aug. 5 at Clinton Township Chippewa Valley. The Oakland Activities Association media day is set for Aug. 8 at a site to be determined. The Kensington Lakes Activities Association will also hold a media day, but date and site information was not available at press time.

The KLAA held its first media day last season at Novi High School. The Aug. 5 happening will be the first for the MAC.

Coaches from each school within each league are asked to attend and be ready to answer questions on the upcoming season related to things such as player personnel and season outlook.

Madison Heights Lamphere Athletic Director Russ McKenzie heads up MAC football and said in a release the media day gives the MAC a chance to show what the league has to offer.
