Air Force freshman tailback Paul Weatheroy’s rookie season has ended before it really even got a chance to start.
Weatheroy, who had been practicing with the Falcons’ varsity, injured his left knee Monday, and Air Force coach Troy Calhoun said today that “it looks like for sure he’ll have to have ACL surgery.”
Calhoun said the injury would keep Weatheroy out for the rest of the season.
“Probably looking at six months,” Calhoun said.
The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Weatheroy, who attended the Air Force prep school last year, was a standout high school player in Oregon at Jesuit. In 2006, his senior season, he rushed for 2,608 yards, scored 38 touchdowns and led Jesuit to the Class 6A championship. He was named The Oregonian newspaper’s Offensive Player of the Year.
