Milford's McCallum Out for the Year

1/28/10
I usually like to be the one who breaks the news. But in times like this it's bittersweet. You never like to see a kid suffer a season ending injury. It's even tougher to see when the kid is a key player on a team that had a real good shot to win a title. Scott McCallum, a 6'3" junior forward for Milford has suffered an injury that will sideline him for the remainder of the year. McCallum has long arms and good quickness which makes him a valuable player on both ends of the floor. He is also an excellent spot up shooter, and is one of the better shooters in Class I. McCallum also provided the Spartans with depth. Milford had a 7 player rotation that was as good as any in New Hampshire. That rotation is now down to 6. Now Coach Murray will be forced to go deeper into his bench, and players like Kevin Kent, Jeff Asselin and Ethan Watson will have to step up. Milford still has a shot at the Class I title, but this loss really hurts them. The division's other top teams now have a better chance. Still, you hate to see it happen because a kid gets hurt. This is not good news for anybody.

  4. Scott how long will it take you to heal up? I think you could still play in the playoffs if the doc gives you the OK and it was your left one so at least you won't have to worry about getting the feel of your shot back. Any chance?

  5. There is a slim chance of a return. The severity of the injury could destroy my wrist if it is not taken care of properly. Hopefully i will be able to return and play in playoffs with my team

  6. McCallum after having a MRI will not require surgery and will be taken out of cast the first week in March and will be available for the playoffs.
    Great news for a good kid.
