TRINITY -- Mitchell RB Ricky Trinidad, one of the area’s top players, arrived to practice a little late Tuesday, but he had a very good reason. The junior standout, who missed last Friday’s game against Pasco with a back injury, was at the doctor's office for a checkup.

And the news was positive, he said.

“He said I’m good,” Trinidad said.

The Mustangs hope to have Trinidad, who has rushed for 1,192 yards and 15 TDs this season, available for Friday’s game against Land O’Lakes. He tweaked his back in a Week-8 win against Sunlake and was not in uniform for his team’s loss to Pasco.

He returned to practice Monday and feels much better.

Earlier Tuesday, Mitchell coach Brian Wachtel said he had a good feeling Trinidad would return to action this week.

“He’s getting better,” Wachtel said. “The call is going to be made in a few days, but I have a good feeling. He’s feeling 100 times better. He’s moving better.”

Mitchell (8-1 overall, 5-1 in 3A-7) must win this week to make the playoffs.
