Injuries part of schoolboy playoffs

Just like in college and the pros, injuries affect high school football teams.
Bushland's Sawyer Cornelius and Stratford's Kyle Horsford, each his team's starting quarterback, have suffered injuries that likely will keep them out of any remaining playoff games.
Corneluis suffered a tendon injury on his non-throwing hand Monday and underwent surgery Tuesday. Horsford suffered a broken arm in last Friday's playoff game against Clarendon and like Cornelius likely will miss the rest of the season.
Can these outstanding teams win without their starting QBs?
I say they can. High school players are really pretty resilient and have a way of overcoming things such as this.
These teams are outstanding teams with our without the particular players. They are certainly better teams with them, but they are capable of playing well without them too. And, I think they well.
It's unfortunate for Cornelius because he is a senior. Horsford is a junior and will have next season.
Here's wishing a speedy recovery to each player.
