South Hills quarterback Tracin Wallace (6’1, 190) announced via Twitter he tore his ACL again last week, a huge blow to the 3-star recruits senior year. On Friday, Wallace posted on Twitter, “I found out today I tore my ACL again last Friday. I know God works in mysterious ways and I trust it.”
Wallace missed all of his junior year after tearing his ACL in a scrimmage.
Wallace had a promising career heading into his junior year last season. After rolling out 2,123 yards passing and 30 touchdowns through the air, Wallace also notched 1,393 yards on the ground and 20 rushing touchdowns as a sophomore.
Wallace’s injury last season didn’t stop numerous schools across the country from recruiting him. In the spring, Wallace and his twin brother Tyaln, made a verbal commitment to Oklahoma State University.
After months of intense rehab, Wallace was ready to get back on the field for his senior year at South Hills and show the entire state he had come back faster and stronger. Now, he is faced with rehab again in the hopes of playing the game he loves, this time for the OSU Cowboys.
Earlier in the year, South Hills head coach J.J. Resendez said of Wallace, “Tracin feels he was cheated out of a year and he has worked so hard to get back on the field. He’s an excellent young man with an impeccable character.” While the news of another injury is devastating to Wallace, he has shown strength in the face of adversity before and this time is no exception.
Although OSU has not responded to his injury and his verbal commitment, there’s no doubt Wallace has the athletic ability to contribute to the Cowboys next season. Wallace walks away from South Hills with over 6,000 total yards and 83 touchdowns, making him one of the best players in school history.
