Oak Grove's Kirk McCarty Fractures Fibula in All-Star Game

Posted: Updated:

A post-season injury leaves Oak Grove's Kirk McCarty sidelined for several weeks.

The state championship quarterback went down with a fractured right fibula on a scramble during the second quarter of Saturday's 65th Bernard Blackwell All-Star Classic in Gulfport, Miss.

For a game that was all about celebrating the accomplishments of 2013, the Southern Miss baseball commit instead ends his football career with a tough road ahead.

However McCarty's head football coach describes the injury as a blessing in disguise.

"I mean down the road - the surgery went well - everything's going to be fine," says Oak Grove head football coach Nevil Barr. "Like I said, there's no question in my mind - or no doubt in my mind, I should say - that he will come back better than ever."

    Normally when you do a story about a shark you do a stand-up on the beach but not this time.  See these fishermen don't want to tell me where their fishing hole is.  It's not just to protect their spot
