The opportunity to play sports

Retired NFL Hall of Famer Mike Singletary once said that his favorite part of the game was simply the opportunity to play. Unfortunately, that chance was taken away from a CVU senior athlete last Saturday in the latest of a string of field-related mishaps. In this athlete’s case, one of his cleats lodged in the metal drainage grate that separates the running track and playing field, causing a severe leg injury that ended his high school football career. This doesn’t have to happen to another student-athlete. While it’s too late to benefit this particular football player, we encourage you to vote YES on the CVU Turf Field Bond on Tuesday, Nov. 5 to help create safe, sustainable playing fields for all our children.
