Disheartening news out of Trumbull today where Trumbull student newspaper Editor-in-Cheif Brett Rosen reports that senior DB and KR Frank Gaines is out for the season with an ACL injury.
The report was confirmed by one other source at Trumbull High School, but Trumbull coach Bob Maffei denied the report Tuesday evening. “He was supposed to get an MRI. We haven’t heard back yet,” Maffei said. “I hope he’s not out. We’ll see.”
Gaines, one of the FCIAC’s best return men who figured to be a key component in Trumbull’s new offense as a senior, was injured in the second half of Trumbull’s 13-9 victory over Wilton and missed all of last week’s 48-0 victory over Westhill.
