Junior running back/defensive back Jordan West broke his hand last night in the Prexies' final preseason scrimmage against Albert Gallatin. The severity of the injury is not known, but he likely to miss the first four-to-six weeks of the season.
It's a tough blow for the Interstate Conference favorites who open the season Friday against Derry Area. Senior Malik Wells, who was set to split time with West in the backfield, will likely receive the bulk of carries and junior Kurt Adkins will also receive carries.
West, who is receiving Division I interest, rushed for 480 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013.
