Cardinal Newman may miss two starting linemen against Pahokee 

By Matt Porter

Like many small-school teams, Cardinal Newman hasn’t been entirely healthy this season.

But heading into their big District 7-2B matchup against Pahokee Friday, the Crusaders could be without two big pieces.

Two-way linemen Sean Gannon and Trey Tucker have yet to practice this week.

Gannon, a 6-foot-2, 250-pound junior, suffered a sublaxation (partial dislocation) of his left shoulder in the first half of last week’s 55-0 home win over Forest Hill. He did not finish the game. Coach Steve Walsh called him “doubtful” for Friday’s game.

Tucker, a 6-foot-1, 230-pound senior, was called “possible” by Walsh. He sprained his ankle in Week 2 against Benjamin.
