Prep Notes: Early injuries plague two schools

Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 2:11am

Davidson Academy freshman running back Jordan Williams suffered a broken ankle in three places early in a scrimmage last Friday at Franklin Road Academy and could be lost for the season.

He underwent possible season-ending surgery at Vanderbilt Saturday morning. He is the younger brother of Bears junior tailback star Justin Williams, Nashville’s leading rusher and one of the national leaders last year.

“Jordan is really down about it but wants to work hard and return when it counts the most, in the playoffs,’’ said his father, Michael Williams. “He knows that he and Justin will have another complete season together as Justin is only a junior.’’

Pack injured

FRA football coach David Pack is on crutches with a knee brace after suffering a severe ACL injury in June.

“Just messing around,’’ he said, describing how it happened. “First significant injury I’ve ever had in my life,’’ said Pack, who was injury free while playing football at MBA and Sewanee. He hopes to be off crutches by the start of the season.
