Palm Harbor University quarterback Billy Pavlock is still recovering from a broken ankle and could miss spring practice next month, Hurricanes coach Matt Lepain said.
Pavlock, a rising senior, broke his ankle last month during a flag football game. He recently had the cast removed and there is a chance he could be ready for the spring game in late May.
"(Billy) has been begging me to get out there," Lepain said. "If he plays, he'll probably play one quarter at the most."
This is the second time Pavlock has been injured in the past six months. He missed the final two games of last season with a broken hand. Tyler Kaminski, a rising sophomore who took over for Pavlock, will likely get the majority of snaps in the spring.
"I have to work Tyler in because he's going to be around the next three years," Lepain said. "We'll use both quarterbacks in the spring if Pavlock is ready."
Pavlock, who is being recruited as an athlete, could see some time as a receiver as well.
"The big thing for me in the spring and fall preseason is to evaluate the talent that I have," Lepain said. "I'm not as concerned with wins and losses at that time."
