Injured Lake Orion player recovering
In the OAA title game against Clarkston, Latshaw was checked from behind into the boards and laid motionless on the ice for 20 minutes before being taken off on a stretcher by paramedics.
Talking further with Keith D., Koz discovered that Latshaw had temporary paralysis, but thank goodness that didn't last long.
He's still in some pain, but he's at least walking and was with the team on the bench for Thursday's pre-regional win over Clarkston.
That's obviously the best news possible, given Latshaw was in such dire straits on the ice last Saturday.
- The Southfield boys basketball team may not be dead after all. After making the state semifinals the past two years, the Bluejays were decimated by the graduation of their core group of players, and hence struggled most of the season. But Southfield is peaking at the right time, having won at North Farmington on Thursday. Don't count the Bluejays out in a district they'll host even though Lathrup and Detroit Henry Ford are the two favorites.
