Booker T. QB could be out for season

Just got off the phone with Booker T. Washington coach Tim "Ice" Harris who told me the ACL injury sustained by quarterback Sancho McDonald could force his team, ranked No. 1 in Class 4A and in the top 20 nationally by all three major polls, to play the remainder of its season with a backup.

McDonald, a 2-star rated quarterback by Rivals, will get the results of an MRI later this afternoon according to Harris. But Harris didn't sound very optimistic about the injury. Torrance Moise, a junior, came in relief of McDonald in BTW's 47-0 win over Fort Lauderdale and was 4 for 4 for 96 yards and a touchdown. He'll start Friday when BTW (2-0) takes on Carol City at 7:30 p.m. at Traz Powell Stadium.

Harris said his son Brandon Harris, a 4-star receiver/cornerback, could potentially see some snaps at quarterback this season if needed. Stay tuned for an update later tonight.
