"Athletes are out and if they're around each other they're not always in the cleanest settings" says ETBU Student Trainer Stacy Havner.
But Marshall High School football coaches say overall they have a clean facility.
Air purifiers, locker room organization and washers with automatic dispensers have kept the team off the sidelines and the students healthy. So far, no cases of the H1N1 virus have been reported at the junior high or high school.
"Our kids do a good job and we tell them we don't want them sick. We don't want them to miss and they don't want to miss a game or practice so they do a good job of cooperating with what we try to do" says head coach and athletic director Thedrick Harris.
The staff says out of 300 players, none have the swine flu. Harris says they cannot account for the other team "All we can do is take care of ourselves and take care of what we do and if another team has the flu or whatever else, we'll deal with that when it comes."
