FREEMAN, S.D. (AP) - The once-dominant high school football team in Freeman hasn’t won a game since 2012, and it won’t win any in the next two years, either.

The school board has decided that Freeman won’t field a varsity team for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, because of low numbers and a perceived risk of injury.

Only 10 players showed up to the first practice last week, and head coach Chris Sayler said a couple of them had never before played at the high school level.

Freeman once was a powerhouse, winning four straight state titles in the late 1990s. Freeman hopes to work out a cooperative agreement with another school so that students can still play if they want.
