Tyler Epstein of Farmington High School injured his knee this weekend on the second play of the game against Windsor High School. An MRI revealed a tear of the MCL, but the meniscus and ACL appear to be in tact. Epstein was rated the #2 linebacker in Tim Graeff's St. Louis High School Magazine.
Epstein had gotten off to a great start by recording 27 tackles and a touchdown in Farmington's first 2 games of the season. The star linebacker of the #3 rated team in Missouri in Class 4 is expecting to be fully recovered in 3-5 months and return in time for wrestling. The three time state qualifier plans to move up to the heavyweight division this winter.
