It was a difficult week for the Owen County Rebels. While the school system was being hit hard by the H1N1 virus, the football team was no exception.
On Friday before the Rebels set off for the game at Christian Academy of Louisville, Owen County Head Football Coach Adam Fowler said the sickness had taken its toll on the team.
“The most we had in practice all week was 31 out of a 50-man roster,” Fowler said.
On top of the sickness, the team also lost two players for the season.
