Shelbyville High School Athletic Director Silas Pogue was shocked when the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) decided to defy Illinois Governor JB Pritzker and move ahead with the basketball season as scheduled.
The decision by the IHSA to move ahead with the basketball season doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen, but it does give these players a chance to actually have a season, according to Pogue.
Pogue understands that the IHSA rule to not have any more than 50 people in a gym will not be a popular one, but he does expect schools to abide by it.
The Shelbyville High School coaches, according to Pogue, have done an outstanding job at keeping the Ram student athletes safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
