If Aram had to bet, Billy The Kid ain’t playing on Friday.
Covina Colts quarterback Billy Livingston has not practiced or thrown a ball this week and remains a game-time decision for Friday’s Valle Vista League opener against Pomona.
Livingston injured his right shoulder in last Friday’s win over Walnut. An MRI revealed a Grade 2 separation. The senior has stopped taking pain medication and his arm is no longer in a sling.
But whether he’s under center when the Colts visit Pomona on Friday is in serious doubt.
“He’s really looking forward to playing,” Thomas said. “He is a game-time decision. He’s been at practice, but has not practiced. We’re going to still run whatever he’s capable of running.
“If he’s ready to go, he’ll be in. If not, he won’t. That’s the best I can tell you.”
If Livingston misses the game, senior backup Daniel Sifuentes will take his place. Sifuentes was the quarterback of the freshman team when the current Colts seniors were freshman. He also saw action last season when Livingston was injured.
