Tuttle's Moore questionable against Newcastle
By Jason Kersey
Tuttle senior running back Bryce “Paco” Moore is questionable for Thursday’s game against rival Newcastle, Tuttle coach Phil Koons said Tuesday.
Moore has rushed for over 850 yards and 13 touchdowns this season so far.
Moore suffered a stinger early in last Friday’s win over Clinton and still doesn’t have full range of motion in his arm, Koons said. He hasn’t participated in any contact drills this week at practice.
Koons said a decision on whether Moore will play or not will come Thursday morning.
“It’s not like this is the Super Bowl or the state championship game,” Koons said. “We don’t want to risk him hurting it worse.”
I couldn’t agree more. Of course, it will hurt to not have someone like Moore in your line-up. But, at the same time, it’s not like Tuttle’s run game will be completely stagnant without Moore. Just look at last week’s game against Clinton, when back-up Ethan Biddy came in and carried the ball 45 times for 146 yards and two touchdowns.
I’m sure Moore wants to play. It would make sense for a kid to want to play every single game he can, and this isn’t just any other game, it’s a rivalry game.
