It would be hard to imagine a more emotional, bittersweet 43-point football victory. The Coeur d’Alene Vikings rolled to a 52-9 5A state playoff win over visiting Timberline on Friday but lost starting quarterback Gunnar Amos to a serious leg injury in the second quarter. Amos was taken off the field by ambulance with what’s believed to be a broken right leg. He told his dad, Vikings head coach Shawn Amos, that he “heard it snap.” Shawn Amos is undergoing chemotherapy after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma last month. Gunnar Amos missed CdA’s regular-season finale last week against Post Falls with a concussion/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.
