     CRESTWOOD — Coaches will also say that when a player goes down to an injury, it’s next man up.

    But, in reality, when you have a small roster, injuries can play a big role.

    And, on the football field where a player is playing on both sides of the ball, an injury means that two players have to step up.

    On Friday, a beat up Bullitt East Charger team traveled to play one of the top 5-A teams in the state — South Oldham.

    Injuries or not, Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander knew it would be a battle.
