I’ve got a story coming out in Thursday’s paper about Andover heading into the second round of the Class 4A playoffs at Topeka Hayden on Saturday.
But the story changed a little bit when coach Mike Lee found out that his three-year starting quarterback, Aaron Hansen, was out for the season. Hansen tore his meniscus in his right knee and has a partially torn ACL, too.
Lee was shaken when I interviewed him. Not because he’s worried about Saturday, but because he’s sad for his player. It was a tough interview.
