There’s no ‘lone star’ on the Tigers

RE: Tigers shut out at home by Woodland Park (SDN, Sept. 10)As the proud mother of the “lone star” mentioned in Saturday’s article about the high school football game, I naturally smiled at his accomplishments. But then, as I remind my elementary students, I put myself in my son’s teammate’s shoes. I feel that singling out a player, positively or negatively, defeats the team spirit that coach Hollingsworth is working so hard to instill in his Tigers. Honestly, my son was embarrassed by and disagreed with the comment. Some may say, “It’s only a local newspaper.” Are you kidding me? Most of us run to the nearest blue box the day after a game to hopefully see ourselves in black and white, and maybe a little gold and green, and be proud of what we read and see. It would be nice if the next game is portrayed in a more positive fashion. After all, we’re not competing with each other. And there’s no lone star in “team”.
