Where have all the athletes gone?

Where have the athletes gone?

While this will focus mainly on the football team, enrollment numbers for athletics are down across the board at DuBois Area High School. High school athletics have long been the pride of their classes. It was an honor to wear your game day jersey on Fridays or earn the letterman jacket. Walk the halls today and you will see kids and immediately think, “He must play football, or basketball, baseball, wrestle, swim, etc.” Ask the kids and you will likely get the response, “I don’t play sports.”

Instead of encouraging kids to work hard, parents routinely tell the kid not to bother because no matter how hard they work, they will never start. Or if they don’t get the position they want, just quit rather than step up where you are needed for the team.

DuBois is a AAAA school that barely has the numbers on the sidelines as some A and AA schools do. While not everyone can be a starter, everyone can contribute to the success of the team.
