Uncertainty of fall sports season affects high school seniors’ future

WKOW (WKOW)-- Madison Memorial's Kabaris Vasser became a household name after leading the Big Eight Conference in rushing yards last season.

"It felt pretty good giving all I had," Vasser said.

It put him on division one college coaches' radars. Now a senior, he's hoping to secure a scholarship offer this year, but the Big Eight Conference's shutdown this fall presents a challenge.

"It's going to be definitely a path changer," Vasser said. "It's not going to stop me at all. It's just going to make me work harder."

Vasser wants to continue to impress college coaches including the ones at Wisconsin where he made a visit last spring.

"With all this happening it gave me more time to work on my craft, the smaller things that really count in the bigger picture," Vasser said.

Sun Praire Volleyball Senior Maggie Allaman is in the same spot and is worried that because other conferences are playing this fall, players will get recruited ahead of her.

"The thing that is most frustrating for me is that other people are getting more recent film," Allaman said. "Coaches can see them playing in games. I only have old film from last school season or film that I get now when I'm playing in lessons, but it's not a game and it's not the same."

Over in the Rock Valley Conference, Madison Edgewood's Charlie Clark is still holding out hope he can play this fall, and he has a lot to prove.

"This summer is the hardest I worked," Clark said. "Obviously it was a shame to miss out on all those camps, so this fall season is probably one of the last chances I have to prove myself to these coaches that I have what it takes."

All their seasons may be in limbo, but their dreams remain in focus as they all intend to sign with a college in the coming months.
