“I broke my right collarbone trying to be a tough guy,” Warehime said. “I was running down the sidelines and there were two guys and I tried to run them over. It was fourth and 10 and I wanted to get the first down and already did but hurt myself on the play.”
Warehime admitted he’s watched the replay of his injury numerous times. Quarterback health is always one of the key factors in any team’s success on any level. Without Warehime, the Mustangs, a program with a rich history of success from the mid-1980s to 2014, missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
Warehime lost valuable time on the varsity, losing in-game reps to hone his craft and build toward his junior season. But despite missing the final five games, he made the most of his unfortunate injury.
‘I learned to become more of a leader. When I got hurt, all I did was help coach and my role was help the quarterback and team to have a good season,” Warehime said. “I did physical therapy to get my arm stronger.”
