Rucker "Probably" Won't Play In Regional Final

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting Atlee Coach Roscoe Johnson has said quarterback Ruben Rucker "probably" will not play Friday in the Division 5 Regional Final against Hanover.

Rucker has been the starter all season, but injured his wrist late in the first half of the Raiders' double overtime semifinal win over Lee-Davis during a fumble.

Kenner Berry, who in relief of Rucker Friday threw two touchdown passes and ran for the game winning score in the second overtime, will likely start for the Raiders.

Johnson told HanoverCountySports.org Friday night on the field after the game that he has confidence in Berry.

"Kenner Berry is a good quarterback", Johnson said.

This means the rematch of these two county schools will feature two different starting quarterbacks. Andrew Knizner has been the signal caller for Hanover ever since Sam Rogers went down with an elbow injury against Henrico. Rogers is back playing, but not in the quarterback role due to the nature of the injury.
