LOGAN – The Utah State football team suffered another injury during its loss to San Diego State Friday night. Sophomore safety Jontrell Rocquemore suffered a broken tibia in his right leg, according to head football coach Matt Wells.
“He’s out for the year,” Wells said.
A tweet from junior safety Dallin Leavitt shows Rocquemore in the hospital eating and smiling post-surgery.
“Right out of surgery and the boy does nothing but smile,” Leavitt wrote.
