Guthrie junior safety Kelyn Hinds was shocked more than anything when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during spring practice.
Hinds suffered the injury on a non-contact play and underwent surgery three weeks later. He is ahead of schedule with his recovery and is hoping for an October return, though it could be pushed back to November or even next season.
During Tuesday’s opening practice for the Bluejays, Hinds was noticeably walking the sidelines.
“I’m just trying to stay busy,” he said. “I want to be out here with my team, my family. I do what I can to coach up some of the players who are replacing me.”
Hinds recorded 123 tackles, three sacks and three interceptions as a sophomore, and had high hopes for this season.
Now, he is leaning on advice from senior Kai Callins, who missed last season with a torn ACL he suffered in last season’s opening game.
“The main thing he said is watching the team is the hardest thing to do,” Hinds said. “But he said mostly stay strong, come out here and support us and we’re here to have your back.”
