Claressa Shields, Women's Boxing, Erik "Doc" Love, High School Football Opening Day, Detroit Tigers, and Cassius Peat.

It's the last show for a while, with Al and engineer Isaac Constans both stepping away for an entire week. That means today's show comprised a lot of material. First of all, Current Sports was in Flint yesterday to cover the arrival of Olympic legend and first two-time boxing gold medalist Claressa Shields. Exclusive interviews, insights, and moments are thrown in throughout the first segment. Then, it's onto mid-Michigan's favorite topic--high school football--and this show has the perfect guest to prep you for all the mania of opening day. Erik "Doc" Love, commentator for The Team 92.1, joins Al for the first time in studio to provide a comprehensive overview of what to expect. Finally, Al and Isaac send their best wishes and bid farewell until next week.
