Kangaroos and Warriors to face off in scrimmage

In 1986, the famed Michael Jackson versus Michael Carr “Quarterback Showdown” took place Under the Tank in historic Kentwood. The hard fought contest saw the Warriors prevail 40-35 in what to this day is still talked about as one of the greatest games featuring some of the area’s greatest players of all time.
