Covina’s Billy Livingston still day-to-day

By Aram Tolegian
Covina quarterback Billy Livingston, who missed last week’s win over Pomona with a Grade 2 shoulder separation, still is considered day-to-day by Colts coach Darryl Thomas and will be a game-time decision when the Colts play at Baldwin Park on Friday at 7 p.m.

“He’s getting treatment,” Thomas said. “He’s getting some laser treatment and some rehab stuff. There’s no swelling on it anymore, so he’s getting better.”

Livingston suffered the injury two weeks ago against Walnut. He didn’t throw or practice last week and was held out of the Pomona game despite suiting up.

“He wasn’t ready to go,” Thomas said. “He just couldn’t do it. I mean, he couldn’t throw.

“Hey, they have injuries in football. I can’t say I’m any more concerned this week than last week. I’m just concerned because one of our guys is out.”

The Colts again will start Daniel Sifuentes if Livingston can’t go. Covina has games against Baldwin Park and Nogales before a showdown with San Dimas on Oct. 21.

“We’re not trying to save him for anything,” Thomas said. “If Billy was able to play, he’d be playing. Again, we’re small-school USA. So if you get somebody hurt, that’s where it can ugly.”

    I hope Mr. Livingston does not rush it. His well-being is more important than any football game.
