All across the nation, high school fall athletes whose seasons have been stripped from them have migrated to the golf course. In Limon, Colorado, a group of football players even resurrected their school’s long-shuttered boys golf team.
“It says a lot about the type of kids that play interscholastic athletics,” said Chris Boone, the golf liaison for the National Federation of State High School Associations. “They want to compete at the high school level. They want to compete for their school and their school name. So they’re finding ways to do that.”
