Aloha's Tyner to miss a week with head injury
By David Auguste
The bad news just keeps coming for the Aloha football team.
Back-to-back losses has the defending Class 6A champs sitting at 2-2 in the competitive Metro League, and now star RB Thomas Tyner has been diagnosed with a slight concussion. He will miss this Friday's contest against Westview.
"I’m taking it easy, this week I'm out," Tyner said.
The head injury occurred during the Warriors’ 47-40 loss to Lakeridge Friday night.
"I just took a blow throwing a halfback option pass,” says Tyner, who piled up 187 yards and scored a pair of long touchdowns before sustaining the injury early in the fourth quarter.
The junior, who graced our cover in September and was a ESPNHS All-American as a sophomore, is currently second in the state with 700 rushing yards. He recently received an offer from USC to go with interest from UW, Oregon and Oregon State.
