A Tough Break
Surrattsville football coach Tom Green hoped that quarterback Andre Johnson - entering his third season as a starter - would prosper on the field, earn a college scholarship and lead the Hornets to their first playoff berth.
However, after Johnson torn knee ligaments during preseason practice, Green said his biggest concern is seeing to Johnson's future.
"I'm not concerned about the team as much as I am about him right now," Green said. "The team, we'll get by. He's got a bunch of schools interested in him, but nobody is going to give a kid a scholarship that's hurt."
Green said he is trying to lay out the options to Johnson and his parents, whether it means going to prep school or junior college in an attempt to once again impress major college coaches. Among the schools that had shown interest in Johnson were Kent State, Akron, Temple, Maryland, Illinois, East Carolina and James Madison, Green said.
"A lot of them were just waiting on this year," he said.
