Crosses behind the Crossbar

Benjamin Hochman’s wrote an article on football at Valle Catholic High in St. Genevieve Mo. in the St. Louis Dispatch sports page. It offered a pleasant surprise this morning.

“Behind the crossbar, there are crosses. They sprout from the tops of tombstones in the cemetery, which sits on a hill behind the south end zone, here at this high school football stadium, where the names on the field are the names chiseled on the grave.”
