Bishop McGuinness linebacker Brandon Nguyen (concussion) has been cleared to play this Thursday in the Irish’s season opener against Shawnee’s junior varsity team, coach Justin Jones told The Oklahoman.
Nguyen suffered the concussion on a helmet-to-helmet collision with Lawton MacArthur running back Darius Graham during the Irish’s first scrimmage on Aug. 18.
Nguyen had 117 tackles last season and is one of McGuinness’ top leaders on defense.Jason Kersey
