Terrace’s Downs injures knee, out for the season

Devante Downs’ senior season had all the makings of a big-time show.

Unfortunately for the Hawks’ 6-foot-3, 230-pound star running back/linebacker, it ended before it began. Downs will not play this season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during a June 21-24 football camp held at Oregon State University, according to the website MLT News.

“At the time he was told it was just hyper-extended,” Terrace head football coach Tony Umayam told MLT News. “The fact that it did not heal as quickly as we thought prompted him to get an MRI,” which discovered the torn ACL.

“I just felt terrible when I heard about it. It is so sad when such an impactful player isn’t able to go out and compete with his team his senior season.”

Downs had a huge impact for Terrace last season, rushing for 1,266 yards and 23 touchdowns last year, according to MLT News. His performance helped the Hawks reach the postseason for just the second time in school history.

Downs drew interest from a number of Pacific-12 Conference schools including Washington, Washington State, Colorado, Arizona and Stanford. He visited the two Bay Area Pac-12 schools — Stanford and Cal — this past May.
