Austin Joyner said he’s feeling better and will be fine for Friday’s game against No. 2 O’Dea after suffering a hip injury in No. 3 Marysville-Pilchuck’s 40-28 win over Lake Stevens last Friday. Tomahawks coach Brandon Carson said after the game that he believed Joyner had a hip pointer.
Joyner has carried the ball 28 times for 459 yards (16.4 yards per carry) and four touchdowns. His dynamic ability with the ball was a big reason why Marysville-Pilchuck was able to win last week. He also is a starting cornerback and important in what the Tomahawks do defensively.
