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.
