      In our In Depth interview, Stuart Schweigert, owner of the Saginaw Sting stopped by. The former NFL-er and Heritage High School Alum said this season will focus a lot on the community. The high school with the most ticket stubs, will get new uniforms courtesy of the team, local cheerleaders will be on the sidelines every week, and the Sting will acknowledge local high school championships on one game night as well.
