Bothell’s McPherson out with torn ACL

Bothell senior Sam McPherson is out for the remainder of the year with a torn left ACL.

McPherson injured his knee during the first quarter of No. 1 Bothell’s 56-7 win over Bethel last week. The Cougars face Eastlake in the state playoffs Friday at 7 p.m.

McPherson, an All-State defensive back last season, was second in KingCo in rushing yards (1,079) and all-purpose yards (1,705).

The injury is a tough blow to Bothell, as it looks to advance to the state finals for the first time since 2007. If Bothell advances it would most likely face No. 2 Camas in a much-anticipated matchup.
