Damien wide receiver Josh Savage will miss Friday’s season opener against Orange Lutheran due to an undisclosed rules violation, Spartans head coach Greg Gano confirmed late Monday.
Savage projects as one of the top receivers in the area and without him Damien’s chances of upsetting the Lancers took a hit.
Gano said the suspension will be only for one week and Savage will play in Week 2 when the Spartans visit Palm Desert.
Aram’s take: Well, that hurts. The rules violation was of the school variety and not the team variety, if you catch my drift. Although I guess you could consider one in the same. This is really bad timing because it would have been nice to see the Spartans offense at full strength vs. O-Lu.
