    To the Editor: Hats off to the Central Eagles coaches! 

    I attended the game at Central High Friday, Nov. 12.  A player on the opposing

    team was injured, and as he was being placed on the stretcher to go to the

    ambulance, the coach instructed ALL of our players to come on the field, take

    a knee and pray for this young man.  The stadium observed silence at this time.  Then after he was removed from the field, our players remained, heads bowed, and continued to pray.
