Status of UC’s Hyde
will be game time
The status of Union City High School standout fullback Keylon Hyde for tonight’s District 14A battle against Trenton remained up in the air this morning.
Hyde, who suffered a concussion early in the Tornadoes’ 28-14 loss to Dresden last week, has undergone various tests all week with mixed results.
He reportedly fared well on a vigorous set of tests on Thursday and was to be put through an “impact” test today.
The UCHS senior needs just 21 yards to become the program’s all-time leading rusher, surpassing Mario McElrath who totaled 3,818 yards from 1998-2000 in a purple and gold uniform.
Tonight’s game against Peabody kicks off at 7:30
