After school officials removed the existing logo because it contained a religious symbol, the Messmer/Shorewood co-op football team will wear new decals during Friday night's game.
Messmer/Shorewood football coach Drake Zortman said new helmet decals to be debuted Friday night will celebrate the success the co-op football team has realized this season. "A 6-1 record currently, and locking up a playoff berth," Zortman said, detailing the successes.

Gov. Scott Walker has on his desk new legislation that would require young athletes suspected of having a head injury to be removed from the activity until he or she can be evaluated by a health care provider.
Randee Drew saw stars as he dropped to one knee. Moments before, the 190-pound Northern Illinois cornerback attempted to tackle a 270-pound Wisconsin Badgers tight end in a game at Camp Randall Stadium during the 2002 season. "I whacked him with everything I had," said Drew, a member of the Nicolet High School Athletic Hall of Fame. "I was kind of woozy for about two plays," he added during a recent interview. "I said, 'Please Lord, don't throw the ball over here,' because I wasn't all there." Given the hard-hitting nature of football, there is not much that can be done to prevent concussions, according to Drew. However, Drew said that once an athlete is dazed by a big hit, trainers, coaches and parents need to proper care is given to …
