Good Thing They Have Young Legs

Here's what happens when you get a late start on your high school basketball season because you won the state football championship, and then the makeup games get cancelled because of weather.
BUSY SCHEDULE: Success on the football field and bad weather have combined to give St. Henry and Hardin Northern boys basketball schedules similar to an NBA team’s.
Between Jan. 11 and Jan. 29 the Redskins are scheduled to play nine games — Tuesday, Friday and Saturday for three consecutive weeks. Hardin Northern also has nine games between those dates.
By comparison, in the same time span, the Cleveland Cavaliers will play 10 games. Ohio State’s men’s basketball team will play six games in those 19 days.
Nine games in nineteen days. And I get tired just subbing in a Saturday pickup game. Of course if they are all like this game, maybe it wouldn't be so bad.

On second thought. Maybe it would be worse.
