It’s official that Sapulpa quarterback Zac Mason is out for the season, after suffering a torn ACL, Sapulpa Athletic Director Michael Rose confirmed in a phone call to Sapulpa Times on Thursday morning. “Unfortunately, he won’t be back this year,” he said.
Mason was injured on the road during the game against Bartlesville in September. Sapulpa won the game but didn’t come away unscathed.
Zac’s father Aaron Mason says the Sapulpa senior had surgery on September 29th and that he was “recovering well.”
“He had his first post-op appointment this morning with Tulsa Bone & Joint and he’s right on track for recovery,” he said. “However, [full] recovery is still 6 to 9 months (away).”
Mason’s absence was felt in last week’s loss to Collinsville, though junior Bryson Williams did the best job he could against the No. 1 team in the district. Rose confirmed that Williams would continue to start for the foreseeable future. In a nice tribute, Zac’s younger brother Bam Mason was put in as honorary captain for the coin toss.
