Team Awaits Results
Siuslaw Viking head coach Sam Johnson says that even if test results come back negative the workouts scheduled for this week will likely remain cancelled. Johnson said he and the coaches are hopeful that the student that displayed flu-like symptoms was not a covid-19 problem.
“It seems like there are other things that could be in play, that’s what we’re hoping…we don’t want it to be the bug, but kind of moving forward as if it is and then hopefully we get the news today through Friday.”
Johnson says workouts have been going well and the turnout has been big. He says more students are showing up for morning workouts than they had on the team last year. He also said they are learning how to practice under the virus restrictions including sanitizing the football between each touch. If test results come back negative the team can resume workouts on Monday. Johnson said there is a slight chance they could be back on the field Thursday, but for now it’s a wait and see.
