Friday Football Cancelled
The Willamette varsity football team roster has been reduced to 14 players after an unprecedented number of injuries and concussions. Due to this unusual and unfortunate situation – and focusing on the safety of our students – Willamette will not be able to field a varsity team for Friday’s scheduled game at Sheldon.
Players’ conditions will be reevaluated next week to determine whether the varsity will be able to play the subsequent game against Roseburg.
We sincerely regret the inconvenience this has caused our friends at Sheldon, who have been considerate and understanding. However, all of us agree that student safety has always been – and always will be – the top priority.
