Hawks senior Brendan Brosnan is working through a finger injury this season. Eric Van Dril reports for High School Cube News:
Maine South senior Brendan Brosnan has been dealing with, and recovering from, a torn central slip in his left ring finger since suffering the injury at a Stanford football camp in June.
The injury has healed slowly since then. It required surgery — the offensive tackle had the tendon reattached in July, and he had a pin in his finger for six weeks after that — and it forced Brosnan, who has verbally committed to Vanderbilt, to begin the season playing with a protective club on his left hand.
Brosnan is still rehabbing the injury and he said it has kept him from playing at his full potential this season because he doesn’t have full use of his hand.
“It’s (hard to get) my hand underneath guys and getting a good grip on guys, which ultimately allows me to drive my legs and get full power,” Brosnan said. “With this, I’m using a lot more shoulder. I’m using my head a little more. It’s just my grip is a little weaker since I’m using my right hand, and so I can’t get my legs into it as much as I’d like to. But yeah, when I get this thing off, I’ll be throwing guys around.”
