Happy Holidays, Lansing Youth Football League, Kappa Express, DeYeya Jones, Detroit Lions, Justin Rogers and Weekend Winners.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" we are whirling towards the holiday season, Current Sports has a festive theme throughout the show. Starting off the hour, Al and engineer Isaac Constans talk a little Detroit Lions, now 9-4. What has let this team come so far and can they keep it up? Then, DeYeya Jones, coach of Kappa Express youth football, brings two young Lansing football stars onto the show. Hear about the future of mid-Michigan football from Jones and from the future, 2015 and 2016 D4 Lansing Youth Football players of the year Carre'on Gordon and Letrelle Jones. Heading back to Detroit, Justin Rogers, Lions beat reporter for the Detroit News, gives the latest on quarterback Matthew Stafford's injury. Finally, Al and Isaac send off their 'Weekend Winners' to end the show.
