When the Eminence High School football players were dropping like flies with all the late-season injuries, Eminence basketball coach Chris Nethery was clenching his teeth.
Secretly, I was too.
More than half of the football players finished the year injured, and with most of those players playing both sports, Nethery is left trying to put the pieces back together.
It’s typical at a school the size of Eminence, but is worse this year. Nethery described the scene as the most injuries he has had to start a basketball season.
