Bishop Diego star John Harris injures knee and will miss first playoff game

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Bishop Diego will enter Friday's CIF Division 6 first round playoff game as the top seed but they will be missing their top player, John Harris.

The senior running back suffered a knee injury late in their double overtime loss to Grace Brethren in their regular season finale on November 3.

Harris was on crutches on Monday, November 6 and has been ruled out of Friday's home game against Norte Vista.

The injury does not require surgery and he could be back later in the playoffs depending on how he progresses and of course if the team advances.

Harris has rushed for just under 1,500 yards this season with 21 touchdowns. He is averaging over ten yards per carry.
