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.

I also pray that this young talent player heals from this injury. As well I hope he can return to lead his impeccable team to a challenging championship for the 2007 year. Let's do it for the overtown community and all the loyal vans across the state of Florida. May the rest of the season be great and thanks for a great coaching staff.

Sancho McDonald without question is a very talented Q.B. Our prayers go out to you and your family, for your swift recovery. As for B.T.'s football future, it couldn't be in better hands. Torrance Moise is hands down, the best high school back-up Q.B. as a junior in Dade County. If his teamates play to there potential, and coaches not change the game plan to extreme, Moise will come through, if not, exceed expections.
