Michigan High School Team Cancels Football Schedule
How bad is it when a local area high school football team has to cancel the rest of their remaining games?
We're talking about the Okemos Wolves. That's exactly what they had to do to change things up.
According to mlive.com:
Okemos was shifting its focus to a junior varsity schedule and would forfeit its final four varsity games.
In fact, Clare was notified on Tuesday that their game with the Okemos Wolves was not going to happen, and that's because Okemos canceled the rest of their football games.
So because of the recent cancelation, Clare gets a forfeit win over Okemos. This from mlive.com:
Clare is awarded a forfeit win over Okemos this week and will collect a healthy dose of playoff points as a Division 5 school beating a Division 2 opponent. The Pioneers are now 4-2 on the season and preparing for a Jack Pine Conference clash with Sanford Meridian in Week 7.
I can honestly tell you that I feel bad for the Okemos varsity football team for canceling the rest of their season.
The entire team was struggling in the first place and could barely even score a point at any of the most recent football games.
In several of their games, the Okemos Wolves were completely shut out, as in scoreless. So I think we can understand why they decided to move on to bigger and better things.
The Okemos Wolves were dealing with one of the worst high school football records around. This from mlive.com:
Okemos entered this week caught in a 28-game losing streak, dating back to Sept. 6, 2019. The school of 1,429 students competes in the Capital Area Activities Conference and is canceling remaining Blue Division games with DeWitt, Grand Ledge and Lansing Everett.
