Magia Day 2041 dedicated to Takaishi

Magia Day 2041 will be a bit of a bittersweet moment because it will not feature Mitakihara Magi senior linebacker Takumi Takaishi, who will not be available due to a torn shoulder. The team has picked itself up, dusted itself off and dedicated the season to Takaishi and quarterback Josh Carrington, who is also out for the season due to a broken elbow.

"Injuries are a part of the game, and they cannot be helped," said fullback Ibn Battuta. "We really wanted Takumi to be available for the bowl game, but it looks very unlikely. Takumi doesn't care if he goes down to injury, though, because he wants the team to win it for him. So we're gonna dedicate this season to him and Josh."

"I don't care what happens, I want my guys to win the conference championship and then the national championship if we make it," said Takaishi in an interview at Madoka Garden. "Playing the game is not my priority at this point. Finishing my degree while watching my teammates pick up the slack is. I've had a great career playing for Mitakihara and I don't want the team to be discouraged because I suffered a torn shoulder. It is what it is."

"Takumi's very vocal, even when he's injured," said senior free safety Kaji Hattori. "We're glad he's in the locker room to cheer us up, to get us going, to give us a spring in our step. Even though Kimo [Nishizumi] and Foosh [defensive tackle Confucius Muhammad] are our captains, Takumi's an honorary captain as far as we're concerned."

"I think the players are pretty motivated to win it for No. 58," said cornerback Nozomi "Crazy Eyes" Matsuyuki. "Air Force are a solid team, and it will be an honor to shut down the Falcons on a day where all the seniors on all the sports teams here in M-Town are honored."
