Bonita quarterback Garrett Pendleton has suffered an injury to his right elbow, but what it is and how serious remains a mystery to even his doctors.
Bearcats coach Eric Podley said Monday that Pendleton has gotten differing diagnoses from his doctors about the injury and was scheduled to have an MRI on Monday to better understand the extent of the situation.
“We’re not positive on the extent of the injury yet,” Podley said. “He’s had differing opinions from different doctors and we don’t really know what’s wrong yet.”
Podley did say that Pendleton is likely out for the Smudge Pot game vs. San Dimas on Sept. 3. How much longer he’ll miss will be determined once the team has a clearer picture of the injury.
Senior Greg Spathias will take over as the starter and senior K.C. Huth will also see time. Junior Aaron Burgett also figures to get reps.
Aram’s take: This is terrible news for Bonita with the Smudge Pot vs. San Dimas less than two weeks away, if anybody can get a QB ready, it’s Podley. More importantly, everyone’s thoughts should be with Pendleton, who by all accounts busted his butt this offseason and was poised for a huge senior year. Hopefully he’s not gone long.
