Senior star Joe Clarke suffered an ankle injury Tuesday during a summer basketball league game at Lincoln Park in New Rochelle. He was on crutches Wednesday at Champions Camp. Coach Lou DiRienzo said Clarke’s injury had not been diagnosed. He will need to see a doctor before he can contemplate returning to action.
Clarke was a key player on the New Rochelle team that reached last year’s Class AA semifinals. He developed into one of the area’s top defensive ends/outside linebackers and punters. He also played a bigger role than expected at tight end with injuries to Anthony Caldararo.
