Hoban's Greg McMullen plays through foot injury

Archbishop Hoban junior football player Greg McMullen suffered a hairline fracture on his foot during the summer, but his play this past Thursday against Garfield indicated he is ready to play.

McMullen, a defensive end and tight end, helped host Hoban defeat Garfield 30-13 in Week 1.

‘‘It was on one those types of injuries where it was not anything major,’’ Knights coach Ralph Orsini said. ‘‘It is an aggrevating type of injury where it was best to rest him during scrimmages.’’

McMullen did not participate in the preseason scrimmages against Firestone and Lake.

‘‘He is 100 percent ready to go for the rest of the season,’’ Orsini said. ‘‘He should be fine.’’

Orsini said he is not sure when the injury initially occurred, but that it was a ‘‘nagging type of deal during the summer.’’

‘‘He would practice during the week, but he was limited,’’ Orsini said in regards to preseason practices.

‘‘He would rest and go through therapy. He was full-tilt the entire week last week.’’

McMullen broke his wrist during the 2009 summer and missed all of that preseason. He had surgery on his wrist and missed the first two games of the season.

McMullen and junior defensive end/tight end LaTroy Lewis are each receiving attention from several Division I colleges in the Bowl Championship Series.
