After a few chaotic weeks, teenagers in Ferguson, MO were able to focus on high school football.  There was some doubt as to whether the school's football team would be able to play it's season opener.  But life almost seemed normal for student athletes at McCluer South-Berkeley on Saturday, August 23rd.  There were hardly three dozen fans at the game, according to estimates on Twitter, and the media outnumbered those in the stands. In fact, SportsCenter did a live segment with McCluer South-Berkeley head coach Keith Rhodes before the game. Despite the flurry of media and the sparse fan attendance, McCluer South-Berkeley and the Ferguson community got a big dose of fresh air.  McCluer South-Berkeley won the game against Cleveland NJROTC, 40-0.
