HS Buzz: Washington's McKenzie awaits MRI on knee
TribLIVE Sports Videos
The day after his son suffered what's believed to be a serious knee injury during a blowout win over Charleroi, Sean McKenzie said Shai's knee was a “little better, not too much pain. Just a little bit of swelling.”
The family hopes to have an MRI done — no one was available to perform one when the McKenzies visited Washington Hospital late Friday — by Wednesday.
Sean McKenzie said his son was able to walk around slightly Saturday morning.
Shai McKenzie carried six times for 166 yards and three touchdowns during the Prexies' 66-10 win Friday, scoring on runs of 64, 90 and 19 runs.
He was hurt while making a cut, and Sean McKenzie said late Friday that they were holding out hope it was only a sprain, though Shai was carried off the field and didn't return to the game.
West Shamokin beats Riverview
After winning just 16 games in 13 previous seasons, West Shamokin is off to the first 3-0 start in school history.
The Wolves won their fourth in a row overall, dating to Week 10 of last season, with a 41-12 victory over Riverview on Saturday at Riverside Park.
The win also tied the school record for wins in a season at three, the same total recorded last year.
West Shamokin (3-0, 3-0) is tied for first place in the Eastern Conference with North Catholic.
Andrew Wingard scored three times and ran for 136 yards in the win.
