Lakeview senior Clyde Sanders II catches the ball during practice on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021 at Lakeview High School in Battle Creek, Mich. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Thursday that indoor contact sports may resume.

Finally the governor is saying, "Let them play."

After athletes, parents and fans of high school sports were figuratively chanting, "Let Them Play" for months, the singular voice that counted finally was heard as Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Thursday that indoor contact sports may resume  Monday as long as safety precautions are followed.

That announcement was greeted with excitement and relief by local players and coaches.

"I can't even explain how excited I am," Lakeview boys basketball coach Steve Wichmann said. "When I first heard it, I said to myself, I think I have goosebumps a little bit. Just excited for the kids.

"I have been telling them all along we are going to play games, and I said we are going to play games earlier than they say. So to their credit, they have been working their butts off to stay ready. Look at them out there now, they are like little kids running up and down the floor, they are so excited."
