FTA: Junior varsity quarter back Cody Middleton was diagnosed with mononucleosis about two weeks ago.

Yeah, that's not a good reason. -_-

ALSO FTA: According to his mother, Shelli, his condition got so bad she had to take him to the hospital, where it was discovered the 15-year-old had contracted viral encephalitis, and he slipped into a coma.

That IS a good reason. O_O

WTF, school admins?!
