Just got off the phone with Wash High football coach Mike Bosnic who told me that senior fullback/defensive end Joe Phillips will not practice this week because of a stress fracture in an ankle.
Bosnic does not believe that the injury will keep Phillips, who holds several scholarship offers including one from Bowling Green, from missing substantial time. Bosnic added that the fracture happened in a "weird" place, and that it is already in the process of healing.
* Wash High senior Dustin Fuller, a WPIAL track champion in the 300 hurdles and 1,600 relay as a junior, is trying out as a kicker for the football team.
Fuller also plays soccer during the fall.
* Spoke briefly with Ringgold head coach Matt Humbert Saturday, a day before the Rams headed to California University for a week of football camp.
There's no doubt the second-year head coach is excited about the addition of Fred Johnson, who transferred from Uniontown. Johnson was an All-Conference player for the Red Raiders, and looks like a lock to start in the Rams secondary. Humbert also said Johnson will get touches on offense.
