Just a week before his last game on senior night, Free State High's beloved star player Eric Watson suffered a devastating injury, tearing his achilles tendon. He was hoping to finish his career on a high note in a clash with Free State's biggest rival - LHS. The two coaches Chuck Law and Mike Lewis decided to do something very unconventional and allow the senior to start his last game even though he couldn't put any weight on his foot and was wearing a protective boot. It was a classy gesture and an unforgettable moment that reminded us what highs school athletics should be all about. Kudos to the two coaches, the players, the schools and everyone involved.
