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.
