High School Cancels Rest of Football Season Due to Injuries
Every football team has its share of injuries each season but nothing like Colorado's Cheyenne Mountain High School.
The team is being forced to forfeit its final two games because it can only field 12 players. That's enough for the offense and one player left over for defense. Or vice versa.
When the season began, coach Willie Roberts had 41 kids on his squad. However, the team has dwindled away to almost nothing because of injuries, eligibility issues and youngsters just simply quitting.
Perhaps it's just as well that Cheyenne Mountain, which once had a good team, is getting out while it still can since this year's record is an unimpressive 1-7.
Actually, things started going South quickly last weekend when Cheyenne Mountain wound up forfeiting the game in the fourth quarter with only a few players left and the team already down 42-0

Claire's doctor quickly checked her and was able to see her baby's head. She gave birth 30 minutes later to 6-pound, 12-ounce Erin Louise. Claire Facebooked: "Didn't have a clue she was there"—no morning sickness, and not even a bump. I love motherhood, even though it was completely unexpected I wouldn’t change it for the world.
