The Agony of An Injured Athlete

Lincoln’s Junior Nate Hesse, a first class athlete, a second team all- state football player and a huge part in Lincoln’s basketball and baseball program this season is out of action for the time being. 
 As a receiver, he made some catches during the playoffs that will not be long forgotten around the area. 
Now he sits, he watches, and he waits. Hesse broke his foot in practice last week and will be out of action for at least three weeks.
Hesse commented, “I came down wrong and figured I broke it”
He realizes it could be worst as it could have been his senior season. Hesse hopes to be back before districts.
Hesse went on to say, “It is hard watching the rest of the team take the court without me, but there is nothing I can do about it.”
Others players in the area have recently experienced a similar situation.
Warsaw’s Senior Matt Luebbert, their starting quarterback, had surgery on his arm and missed the entire football season. He is back playing basketball and is one of the best players in the area.
Cole Camp’s Senior Evan Shearer received a serious concussion and missed the last half of the football season and hasn’t played in a basketball game thus far. Hopefully he will back for baseball.
We wish all of the players a speedy recovery.
