  • On Good Things Utah today – After the COVID-19 pandemic brought her junior year track season and academic year to a sudden halt, Enterprise High School senior Dallee Cobb has a whole new appreciation for school and the activities she loves. She’s a cheerleader, throws javelin and is a member of her school’s HOPE squad. When she and other students got word of a planned protest in St. George against the statewide mask mandate in Utah’s public schools, they feared they might have to sit out another term of school if enough people refused to comply with the public health order and COVID-19 cases started to mount. So they literally took a stand, speaking out prior to the start of their high’s football game against South Sevier on Friday night to urge community members to do their part to help curb the spread of coronavirus. First, Cobb thanked the community for its support “in the midst of all crazy uncertainty.” The high school is doing its best to ensure an amazing senior season, she said, “but they can’t do it alone.” Flanked by the school’s senior athletes, she and senior football player Adam Holt called on their small town to help by wearing masks. “We, of all people, know that wearing a mask is not fun. Neither is wearing a seat belt or a life jacket or pads for football, but we do all these things so we have a future,” she said. “We ask that you put your mask on so we can get our game on,” she said.
