PALM HARBOR -- When Palm Harbor University starting QB Ja'Tyuan Landing (ankle) was injured in the team’s season-opening loss to Tarpon Springs, sophomore Billy Pavlock stepped in and guided the Hurricanes to two straight wins as the starter.

Then, as luck would have it, he also got hurt.

In the Hurricanes’ 37-3 loss to Gibbs on Sept. 25, Pavlock sustained a broken bone in his non-throwing (left) shoulder and he hasn’t played since.

“He fell on it wrong,” PHU coach Mark Haye said.

The 5-foot-10, 150-pound Pavlock, who is 22-of-33 passing for 305 yards and has 319 rushing yards, will make a return trip to the doctor next Monday.

“I’m feeling good,” he said Tuesday. “Hopefully, I’ll be back.”

Landing has returned from injury, so the starting job is his again. But Haye saw enough of Pavlock to like his potential for upcoming seasons.

“He’s going to be the future,” Haye said. “He’s a good QB with a good mindset. But he’s got to hit the weight room hard in the offseason.”
