The RegisterGuard has the good news here:
South Eugene High will not field a football team this fall, the school announced Friday via email and a message posted to the ParentVUE website run by the Eugene 4J School District.
A lack of student participation in football will prevent the Axe from bringing back a team Monday, the first day OSAA-sponsored fall sports are allowed to report for practice.
“It’s a hard thing to put into words,” South Eugene football coach Kenny Koberstein said. “There are a lot of things to consider, but number one is that we want to have a football team but we just don’t have the numbers.
“Everybody’s really disappointed. Nobody wanted this to happen.”
Actually it seems everybody got exactly what they want, except Coach Koberstein and the 19 kids who did sign up.
