Saint Vincent QB Brady Walker done for the season

Bill Beckner

Saint Vincent freshman quarterback Brady Walker is done for the season with a knee injury, Bearcats coach Aaron Smetanka confirmed.

Walker was injured Sept. 28 in a home game against Carnegie Mellon, a 49-14 loss for Saint Vincent (0-4).

Walker, who started his college career at West Virginia Wesleyan before making the move to Saint Vincent, has completed 55 of 103 attempts with six touchdowns and five interceptions.

The Gateway graduate was 12 of 32 for 178 yards and two scores in the CMU loss.

“Brady has been a leader and hard worker from the first day of training camp,” Smetanka said. “Since he was told he will be out for the season, he hasn’t changed a bit. He has been at every meeting and practice just as he would be if he was still starting.”

Smetanka started senior Michael Navarro last week in a 48-10 loss to Geneva, but he will go with junior Lorenzo Cota under center this Saturday at Thiel.

Walker is the second-leading passer in WPIAL history with 8,816 yards.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
