Initially, Pickerington North head coach Nathan Hillerich told Eleven Warriors they were hopeful it was just an MCL sprain, but an MRI revealed a tear.

Just want to say thank you to everyone who has had me in their thoughts and wishing me well. I will have my MCL surgically repaired sometime this week.
