EDIT: Pittsburg High running back Harris Ross will miss tonight’s game against Deer Valley and possibly the rest of the season after re-injuring his right leg at practice this week. Last week, Ross became Pittsburg’s all-time rushing leader, but posted on Twitter Friday that he fractured his right fibula, confirming an earlier report of his injury.
“God give me the strength and ability to get through this injury so I can return this season in playoffs,” Ross posted to Twitter on Friday afternoon.
Pittsburg is playing undefeated Deer Valley for first place in the Bay Valley Athletic League.

Original post: Pittsburg High star running back Harris Ross suffered a leg injury at practice and is questionable for Friday’s game against Deer Valley, according to CBS/MaxPreps’ Mitch Stephens on Twitter today. Stephens wrote in a following tweet that he got the news from Pittsburg coach Victor Galli.
Ross broke three school records (career rushing yards, career touchdowns, single season rushing yards) in a 272-yard, three-touchdown performance last Friday against Freedom (a 34-13 Pittsburg victory). The Oregon State-bound Ross, who earlier this season rushed for a North Coast Section-record 464 yards in a 49-29 win over Monte Vista, has 1,827 yards rushing this season.
Galli was unable to be reached for comment by the Bay Area News Group about the reported injury.
