Dealing with depth issues
Mounting injuries hurting Pioneers
Placeholder Image
Depth was already going to be an issue for the Warren County High School football team coming into this season. Injuries are making it a glaring problem right now.Starting at 0-2 has taken a toll on the Pioneers’ psyche after coming into the year with high hopes, but the two contests have taken an even greater toll on the bodies of many of the Warren County players.In the second half of last week’s 41-16 loss to Shelbyville, the Pioneers saw starters Cameron Lusk, Tucker Slatton, Lee Carden, Drew Davidson and Ethan Stuart all leave the game with injuries.Lusk, Slatton and Davidson would return, but Carden and Stuart both sat out the rest of the game. Without Carden, who laid on the field for several minutes while trainers tended to a potential neck injury, the Pioneers were without their leading receiver on offense and top tackler on defense.
