What’s wrong?

What could possibly be wrong with this excerpt from Yahoo! Sports’ “Prep Rally” — besides the wayward apostrophe?

the hayes sports pr

The article is not about anyone named Hayes. It’s about a father and son whose last name is Harvey. The brilliant writer finally realized his mistake — well, one of his mistakes — and made this correction:

harveys sports pr

Now the name is right, but the plural is wrong. The plural of Harvey is Harveys — no apostrophe.
