Thick Fog Brings Back Memories For Lincoln Players

On Wednesday morning last week, the fog was so thick that it limited visibility to some twenty five feet along the highway from Warsaw to Lincoln.
Lincoln Coach Brad Drehle liked the fact that it was cool and made it comfortable for the boys to practice at six A.M.
About ten yards visibility on the football field was all the players had to work with.
That brought back memories of their district football game with Cole Camp two years ago in Lincoln. Senior Lineman Gabe Mehrens remembers, “The fog was higher. We could see on the field but the fans couldn’t see very well.”
Devon Parrott, who was given a clean bill of health by his doctor on Tuesday, also recalls that game. “I think it is worst today. Wasn’t much passing in the game. When I kicked the ball it would disappear at the arch.”
Lincoln won the game and went on to a second place finish in state.
