One of Georgia’s top quarterbacks will miss the rest of his senior year after suffering a knee injury in the season-opener.
Will Gardner, who has committed to Louisville, torn the ACL in his right knee in Coffee High School’s win over Brunswick last Friday. An MRI confirmed the injury on Monday.
“It was heartbreaking because Will really worked his tail off; he was phenomenal,” Coffee coach Ken Eldridge said. “He’s such a great kid, like a son to me. He was devastated by the news, as was our team. We’re really hurting for him.”
The 6-foot-5, 214-pound Gardner committed to Louisville over Alabama and Mississippi State last month. Eldridge talked to Louisville’s coaches on Monday and was told that they are sticking by the college scholarship offer. “He’s still their guy,” Eldridge said.
