The reason behind all the injuries to Hinsdale Central's quarterbacks may be just bad luck, according to High School Cube News:
Hinsdale Central’s promising football season was crippled by an alarming number of freak injuries, beginning with starting quarterback Chase Hamilton’s first-game ankle surgery and continuing until 17 Red Devils players spent time on the sideline.
Along the way, fifth-string QB Thomas Ives was used in a Week 6 win over Hinsdale South.
That’s what athletic director Dan Jones wanted to know.
Jones, a stickler for details, gathered information from coaches, doctors, trainers and landscapers who keep practice and game fields level. Their conclusions: Bad luck.
“It was one of those unbelievable things,” Jones said. “Hopefully, we never have a stretch like this again.”
The regular season ends at home Friday night with the Old Oaken Bucket game against Downers North. The Red Devils (4-4, 2-3 West Suburban Silver) need a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive.
