Heritage RB Tyler McDonald out for season

Continuing the theme of a very newsy Wednesday, Heritage’s leading rusher, junior running back Tyler McDonald, has been lost for the season. McDonald tore ligaments in his thumb in Friday’s 24-12 win over James Logan. Patriots coach Jeff Haagenson said Wednesday that McDonald has surgery on Sunday and will be out for the season. In four games this year, McDonald had 45 carries for 416 yards (9.2 yards per carry) and five touchdowns.

Army All-American game to have ceremony in Livermore

Got a press release today from the folks over at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. They are going to have a ceremony next Wednesday, Oct. 6, at Granada HS to select an All-American to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on January 8 in San Antonio. They’ll present the new All-American with a jersey and will honor him during a pep rally on campus.

Hmm. I wonder who it could be?

Monte Vista’s Michael Sullas out vs. Cal

Monte Vista High’s top running back, Michael Sullas, has a knee infection that will sideline him for the Mustangs’ East Bay Athletic League opener Friday night against unbeaten host California.
Sullas, a senior who ran for 192 yards and four touchdowns in the Mustangs’ 70-21 rout of Hayward last week, spent Monday night at San Ramon Regional Medical Center, where his swollen knee was drained and he received heavy antibiotics, according to his dad, Mike.
Sullas, who is recovering quickly, could miss nine to 14 days of football and be hospitalized until Friday.
“It was so unbelievably random, it’s crazy,” Sullas’ dad said, noting that Sullas injured the same knee last year against Granada.
The Monte Vista (2-1) and California (3-0) game is one of the marquee matchups in the East Bay.

De La Salle 28, Bishop Gorman 14

Alright everyone. Jimmy and I just got back to the office, and I figured I’d get you the stats as soon as I could (also, some of you might not get it in your paper tomorrow because of the late start). Safe to say, we may not see two better teams around here this year. Man, what a game. Anyway, here’s the box.
