Sun-Sentinel: Gibbons' Greco out with injury

"Cardinal Gibbons' extreme optimism about ending its 10-year football losing streak to private school rival St. Thomas Aquinas in the annual "Catholic Bowl" endured a major blow last week as its best player, senior quarterback Mike Greco, injured his throwing hand in practice.

Greco broke the knuckle above his left pinky -- the result of a helmet hit -- and will miss at least two games, including Friday's season opener against St. Thomas, coach Mike Morrill said. Greco, a returning starter, didn't post impressive statistics last season but emerged as a major college recruit by running 40 yards in 4.3 seconds at the Nike camp this spring and orally committed to North Carolina State."
