Pantagraph.com reports that more than 35 members of the Illinois State football team were stricken with a stomach virus this week that caused them to miss practice.
“The carnage ended up being about 50 people, coaches, trainers, players, managers. It was unbelievable. I’ve never been through that before,” said Coach Brock Spack. “But what doesn’t kill us makes us tougher and better.”
“Some of the volleyball players are sick. I’m hearing some other people on campus are sick,” Spack said. “I was one of the victims. It’s not a lot of fun. It’s pretty intense for about 24 hours.”
