HS team started the season 3-0. Won the first 2 games by 50+ points against a couple of bad teams. Won the 3rd game by a touchdown against a team that smoked us last year 60-0.
Lost a close one against a rival then lost again last week when our 2 best players were knocked out in the first half. First kid suffered a season-ending injury in the 1st quarter. 2nd kid was ejected for fighting. Those 2 were our 1st and 2nd string QB's. Because our 1st string QB was ejected, he also has to sit this week.
Today is game day, so we're limping into the last regular season game with our 3rd string QB. And just now, I was informed that our starting tailback has to quarantine for 14 days because of COVID exposure. Next man up and all that, but we're running out of next men.
Playoffs start next week, and it's a weird year, so everyone gets an automatic spot in the playoffs. We get our QB back, but our chances of making a run aren't good.
On a side note, my youngest (11) was hit hard on an illegal crack back block last night. The kid led with his helmet and my son didn't get up for awhile. I thought it was a concussion, but it ended up being his back/ribs that were hurting. He eventually went back in, but it really sucks when you see your son laid out on the field like that.
And how 'bout them Cowboys?!
Football sucks right now.
