GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Eleven months after the sudden passing of Grandville High School’s Ryan Fischer and a night that ended with an incredible image of sportsmanship and compassion between two high school hockey teams, Grandville and Detroit Catholic Central High School will once again meet again on Saturday.

This time, the teams will face off at 1:30 p.m. Friday at Van Andel Arena in downtown Grand Rapids to raise money for the Ryan Fischer Scholarship Fund. Tickets can be purchased online. The tickets will get you into both the Ryan Fischer Legacy Scholarship Hockey Classic and the Griffins game later that night.
24 hour news 8’s Larry Figurski, who is not only a long-time Grandville resident — but also a 1982 graduate of Detroit Catholic Central has the story of what has become a unique relationship between the two teams.
