On Sept. 17, the State College Area School District Board of Directors voted to allow sports to take place this fall, despite coronavirus concerns. State College Area High School hosted its first home football game last Friday at Memorial Field.
I believe in sports. I’ve been playing sports as long as I can remember. My earliest memories are of my two older brothers and I going outside to shoot hoops or to throw a football around. It wasn’t just for fun – we were also desperately trying to escape the screech of my parents’ bickering. For hours, we would play and laugh.
