Nick Holt, Seattle Prep’s star quarterback and linebacker, is expected to play tonight when the Panthers take on O’Dea for the Metro League Mountain Division title.
Holt, who twisted his knee against Rainier Beach last week and watched the second half on crutches, didn’t practice this week to rest his knee for tonight.
“He’s going to give it a go,” said Seattle Prep coach D.R. Clawson.
Clawson said that Holt “tends to sublux (or partially dislocate) his kneecap a little bit,” which requires rest to heal.
Clawson said with a little adrenaline from such a big game, Holt should be able to play. If not, Jackson Clough will start at quarterback.
Both teams are tied for first place in the division with 3-0 records and are 6-1 overall.
