On Saturday, the Lake Central boys soccer team was playing in an Indiana-Kentucky challenge down in Evansville.
Things were going well for the Times No. 10 Indians until one play almost changed the outlook for the entire season.
Indians senior Ogi Janjus was battling with the opposition for a ball that was in the air when he came crashing down.
He didn't think it was anything at first, until he wiped his forehead and found out how serious the situation actually was.
"I thought I was sweating, but when I put my hand on my head, it turned out that I was bleeding," Janjus said.
But guess what was the first question Janjus asked after being tended to?
"Ogi asked when he could go back in and play again," L.C. coach Jereme Rainwater said.
Understandably, Janjus wouldn't play again for the rest of the weekend, as the end result of the play was five staples in his forehead after he was taken to the hospital.
Guess what Janjus was thinking about from the time he realized he wasn't going back in until the time the game was over?
"He kept texting me during the rest of the game asking what the score was," Rainwater said. "From day one he's been a leader and a great role model for the younger guys."
It was excruciatingly agonizing for Janjus to realize that he had to miss time.
"I really hate missing games," he said. "I haven't missed any games in my four years."
This is one of the youngest teams Rainwater has had and with experience comes the lumps that have to be taken from gaining said experience.
"With younger players it's hard because they've had so much success in club ball, but now they're dealing with faster and more athletic kids," said Rainwater.
According to Rainwater, Janjus has made the transition easier for his underclassmen teammates,
"Ogi shows them how to work and prepare for soccer on the varsity level," he said. "Whenever a coach isn't around, he's the one answering questions."
Ultimately, Janjus wants to be a stabilizing force for this year's team and beyond.
"This team is gonna keep rolling because they showed me all of their talent over the summer," Janjus said. "They have been learning how to play tougher and adapting to play smarter.
"Hopefully they remember this year and what they have been taught."
