Rashad Kinlaw and Extracurricular Activities

Rashad Kinlaw

These extracurricular games that have maturated onto the scene must be driving coaches crazy.  They sell tickets, airtime commercials and garner publicity for the participants however they are fraught with danger and career ending injuries.
Case in point.

High school quarterback Rashad Kinlaw, who is committed to play cornerback for the Irish, suffered a fractured fibula during a recent football tournament in Texas.

It’s the same bone that broke in his leg midway through Kinlaw’s sensational junior season. While only playing in six games, he rushed for 486 yards and five touchdowns, while throwing for five more.  However, the current damage is substantially more serious than the 2011 injury, which did not require surgery.

Kinlaw said doctors inserted a plate and screws to stabilize his partially displaced ankle, which suffered significant ligament damage during the break. He hopes to begin rehabilitation by late August.

The injury occurred on June 30 in Austin, Texas, while Kinlaw was playing wide receiver for the U.S. Under-19 National Team in a game against American Samoa.

His entire senior year may be lost and this always puts a damper on incoming college freshman who are coming off injury.   Getting hurt or injured in a regular high school game is one thing; getting dinged in a meaningless game is something else again.

I’m sure the Notre Dame doctors are all over this.  He is a very gifted athlete who needs to show up healthy next summer, we need cornerbacks.

Good Luck Rashad, heal quickly my friend.
