The high school football season is still a little less than three weeks away, and the problems are all ready mounting for Avery football coach Darrell Brewer and his coaching staff. The Vikings, who open the season at Cloudland (TN.) on Friday, August 23, lost their best player to injury on July 30. Defensive back Ty Polsgrove, who was named to the preseason Class 1A all-state team by, suffered a serious hip injury at workouts last week. And the injury is a costly one with Polsgrove expected to miss the entire season.
Polsgrove was injuried during a one-on-one defensive coverage drill during a preseason workout at camp. Polsgrove landed awkwardly after leaping to defend a pass. He sustained a broken hip and underwent several hours of surgery at Brenner Children's Hospital in Winston-Salem, where surgeons installed two plates and eight screws to repair the injury.
The Vikings, who will play Watauga at MacDonald Stadium on September 13, were 3-9 last fall. The Vikings have posted five losing seasons in the last seven years. Brewer, now in his * year, is 58-56 with a conference championship, two sectional titles and two apearances in the westen regionals (both coming in 2005 and in 2010).
