To say this will be an unusual football season would be an understatement.
“It’s another level of chaotic,” Kenosha Indian Trail Head Coach Paul Hoffman says.
At Kenosha Indian Trail, the players tried on masks.
“Just today I busted four. Thank goodness they bought about 300,” Hoffman says.
“It covers the lower half. It’s a little hard to see but we’re just happy to be out here playing football,” Right Guard Riley Kennow says.
Many thought Kenosha schools would switch from fall to spring sports. Three weeks ago, they had a change of heart.
“When we came in I thought they were going to spring. I’m just so joyful we are here,” Cornerback/Safety/Wide Receiver/Running Back Clayton Bishop says.
“After our speeches, we were 50/50, and the vote was 7-0. We’re so grateful to be out here and grateful to play,” Kennow says.
And then the team deals with the unrest in Kenosha.
“The more people you can get talking? And seeing different points of view? It’s definitely better,” Bishop says.
“When you see it on the news, racial injustice, it’s tough,” Kennow says. “We’ve had so many talks. But when you see it in your back yard it’s tough.”
