UPDATE: Rio Hondo Prep-Pas Poly game canceled

Pasadena Poly athletic director Steve Beerman confirmed the Panthers’ football game on Saturday against Rio Hondo Prep has been canceled. The game will not be made up, therefore giving the Kares a forfeit win. The news comes almost a week after Pasadena Poly’s Jackson Allan sustained a serious head injury in the final minutes against Chadwick. He was rushed to UCLA Harbor Medical Center where he underwent brain surgery to relieve swelling and internal bleeding. Allan remains in the intensive care unit. Allan’s parents, Les and Rhonda, posted a message Wednesday on Facebook saying “We had a quiet day with doctors satisfied at Jackson’s progress although he remains in the ICU.” The decision to not play Saturday came early Friday morning. “When you take the week into consideration,they were not prepared to play,” Beerman said. ” The administration and coaches talked and we just don’t feel, based on the week of practices and preparations, we were ready to play.” Pasadena Poly drops to 5-4 overall and 2-2 in Prep League play. The Panthers can still make the playoffs with a win over Viewpoint next week. Rio Hondo Prep coach Ken Drain said earlier this week the team planned on honoring Allan during Saturday’s by wearing orange wristbands that had Allan’s No. 41 number on it. “This is a situation where if they wanted to not play we would totally understand,” Rio Hondo Prep coach Ken Drain said earlier this week.
