Duluth Coach Corey Jarvis is not sure when, or if, his starting quarterback will return. Region 7-AAAAA's most feared passer Anfornee Stewart's injury has been diagnosed as a high ankle sprain. Recovery time could be 4-6 weeks.
After a difficult loss to Collins Hill Friday, Duluth football Coach Corey Jarvis said he was looking forward to the Wildcats open date next Friday. "We need some time to regroup," Jarvis said Sunday afternoon. "The last three weeks have been very tough. I felt like we should have won the Alpharetta game. Then, we lost our starting quarterback last week and lost to Collins Hill Friday." Duluth started the season 2-0, but the 'Cats lost starting quarterback Anfornee Stewart to an ankle injury in the Norcross game last week. They lost that game 35-14 then fell to Collins Hill 35-13 on Friday. It is questionable as to whether Stewart will be able to return this season. Jarvis said the injury has been diagnosed as a high ankle sprain and …
