Bonita QB Garrett Pendleton injures elbow, awaiting MRI …

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.

    Wow what a heartbreak for Garret and his Bearcat team, I hope his recovery is fast and complete, and hopefully in time for him to get a chance to play at least during league and playoffs.

    Wow…this is screwed up news if it is correct. I wish him a speedy recovery. Big loss but I still have Bonita in the smudgepot.

  • Unbelievable

    This REALLY sucks for Garrett! What a great kid. He was going to have a huge year, In my opinion he is one of the top two quaterbacks in the area.I hope he can make it back soon. He would have destroyed san dimas

    With or Without GP Bonita still gets beat….SD is loaded again…. There QB is out for a while also.

    As for GP, SD wishes him the best and hopefully the injury is not too serious and he can play this year. Keep your head up GP and continue to work hard. Best of Luck!

    I do accept as true with all of the ideas you’ve presented on your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for novices. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
