Downriver Rockets
"Downriver", Michigan

Donated by J. M. Rowe.

Patch #340, added on Mar. 7, 1997.

J. M. says:

"I am the coach of the U-12 boys "Downriver Rockets" team. We are considered a recreational team since we never had a tryout, but starting our third year we are playing in a select league based on our successes in tournaments and past leagues. Downriver is the area below (downstream of) Detroit, Michigan, on the banks of the Detroit River. Woodhaven and Trenton are two prominent cities. Downriver is a "looked down upon" part of the Detroit metropolitan area, so we especially enjoy our team's success in leagues and tournaments, and have named our team to show our pride in our blue and white collar neighborhoods."
