Football is a game of toughness and for overcoming adversity. So many times we see teams deal with injury, miscues, and overwhelming odds, but for the DeKalb Junior Pro Peewee Tigers adversity meant dealing with the loss of one of their coaches, Shane "STU" Usrey. Usrey passed away last week and at Saturday’s games, both Peewee teams wore a Boston Red Sox emblem that featured Usrey’s initials in honor of their coach.
