HENDERSON, Tenn. — Chester County’s Bo Morris learned two weeks ago that he could be out of football pads for nearly month. The senior quarterback received news from doctors that he has mono. To deal with the illness, Morris is making sure his replacement Malcolm Tippler has an easy transition. “Last Friday, he kept telling me what’s open and what I needed to throw,” head coach Michael Hodum laughed. The Eagles have gone 2-0 without Morris under center. Morris’ dad Andy said via text, “He’s [Bo] feeling better,” but it’s not certain if he’ll be ready for Friday’s game against Crockett County. “‘If he’s not dressed Friday night, I’m sure he’ll be in street clothes doing the same thing he did,” Hodum said. “When they release him and tell him it’s okay to go — we’re going to let him go a little bit.” “Just depends on what the doctors say and how comfortable they are.”
