The injury woes are not ending for Gardena Serra, which learned this week that standout defensive lineman Rasheem Green will be lost for the season after suffering a knee injury last week in the regular-season finale against Loyola.
Green is the fifth Serra starter lost for the season because of injury.
Green had eight sacks and more than a dozen tackles for losses. He’s considered a five-star college prospect at 6 feet 5, 285 pounds.
“The tackles for losses are real stats,” Coach Scott Altenberg said.
The Cavaliers have had time this week to work on a Plan B without Green. They will face Corona Centennial on Friday night at Centennial in a Pac-5 Division opening round playoff game.
Green was selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January. Altenberg is scheduled to be one of the head coaches in the game but Green won’t be able to play.
