BALDWIN -- Baldwin football coach Bob Watkins is getting ready to roll out his summer program very soon.

“We have the weight room scheduled,” Watkins said. “Basketball is starting something this week. For the nonbasketball players, we’ll have the weightroom available. We’ll have a little minicamp after the summer basketball program.”

The football schedule has been released for the 2021 season.

Baldwin plays 8-man football. It will open with a home game on Aug. 27 with Vestaburg, followed with road games at Mesick on Sept. 2 and at Onekama on Sept. 10.

Baldwin is back home on Sept. 17 vs. Manistee Catholic Central, followed by a road game at Marion on Sept. 24 and a home tussle on Oct. 2 with Webberville. Oct. 8 is currently an open date. The Panthers are at Bear Lake on Oct. 15 and home with Merrill on Oct. 22.
