The Potterville Viking Coaching Staff and administration made a decision today to cancel Friday Nights football game at Dansville due to safety concerns. We did not feel we could safely field a team this week due to an abundance of injuries.
Our numbers have been low since the beginning of the season and each week we have dealt with one or two players being injured and not being able to play the next week. This past Friday night we had 3 players go out with injuries including 2 season ending injuries and another concussion (our 4th of the season). It is our job as school personnel to make sure we are not placing our athletes in dangerous situations. At this time we feel that putting our team out on the field Friday would not be in the best interest of our athletes and their physical well being.
We plan to re-evaluate our situation at the end of the week and hope to continue playing football in the coming weeks after our athletes have had some extra time to get healthy.
