Moments like this, as the score and the struggle melt away, show what high school sports are really all about.
It was a moment of true sportsmanship among fierce competitors. Amite High School freshman kicker Liam Adamson sustained a game-ending injury during the Louisiana High School Athletic Association 2A championship game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on December 7.
The crowd applauded in support as Adamson, strapped to a gurney, was loaded onto a cart by medical personnel. Adamson raised a hand in recognition, and that’s when his opposing players sprang into action.
Welsh High School players Macey Hicks and Alec Iguess ran out to give Adamson some words of encouragement and a quick hug before he left the field.
