COVID has definitely changed a lot of things, but having to play football in the snow is something that we never saw coming.

Starting football in February when it is still typically cold has not been the easiest thing. But players like Jacob Woolsey are still excited to play despite the challenges.

“I am most excited for just having the opportunity to play since we all expected not to be having any type of season,” said Woolsey.

The Lowry JV football team recently lost their home game against Elko by a score of 33-0.

Woolsey has been playing football since he was in second grade, making this his eighth football season.

Practices this year have looked quite different in contrast to past years. At the beginning of open gyms, players were asked to wear masks. While also having to keep as much distance as possible.

Dempsey Jenkins, a freshman on JV also is very excited for the seasons and is grateful for being able to get tested every week.

“I am most excited to just play and get out of the house,” said Jenkins. He is looking forward to traveling to games even if they can’t stay overnight.”

Mr. Adam Sorenson an assistant coach for the team says he is excited that they even get a season at all.
