|Kyle Molock-Senior Guard Dublin Coffman|
I have always said; the game of basketball can be brutal. Unfortunately for Dublin Coffman’s Kyle Molock, the injury bug has struck again. On Tuesday, early in the 4th quarter at Hilliard Davidson, as the senior guard and St. Joe’s pledge “was defending, he made a spin move and heard a pop,” said Kyle’s father, Karl. “He [Kyle] knew right away [it was a second ACL injury],” added the elder Molock. As most people know, Molock missed his junior high school basketball season as a result of an ACL injury in his left leg. This time the injury was to the right knee.
According to Molock’s father, the recent injury “is nowhere near as serious as Kyle’s last injury. Last time, Kyle tore every ligament; he totally ripped up his knee. This time, it’s just a simple ACL tear, and Kyle should be fully recovered in 4-6 months,” added Molock. Molock is expected to make a full recovery and be back on the court by June; “even stronger than ever,” his father added. Molock is reportedly in good spirits. “I could not be prouder of him [Kyle] and how he is handling it [injury]. He is in great sprits and is already focused on college,” offered Karl Molock.
For those of you who are wondering, St. Joe’s Head Coach, Phil Martelli, has already contacted the Molock family and reassured them that Kyle still fits into their plans. “We talked to Coach Martelli and he is very positive about Kyle long term. He is still planning to [come to Columbus and] see Kyle this season,” added Molock’s father. Buckeye Prep would like to wish Kyle a full and swift recovery!
