Isaac Lindsey remains in the hospital following a head injury suffered in last week's game against San Luis Obispo. But despite his absence Friday night in Templeton, it's clear that Lindsey is not far from the community's mind or heart.

Fans are wearing T-shirts reading "TEAM ISAAC," signs wishing Lindsey a speedy recovery cover the campus and the entrance into the stadium, and two of the award-winning restored tractors by the teen sit on the sideline behind the Eagles bench.

The undefeated Eagles (4-0), including Isaac's older brother, Louis, will attempt the difficult task of playing Friday night without their fallen teammate.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
