Longview QB Bivins Caraway Out for the Year With a Torn ACL
Longview quarterback Bivins Caraway will miss the remainder of his senior season with a torn ACL in his left knee, Caraway confirmed with ETSN.fm on Tuesday afternoon.
Caraway suffered the injury during the second quarter of Longview's 41-8 season-opening loss to Coppell at SMU's Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas. He finished the game 3-for-10 for 31 yards an one interception facing heavy pressure from a Coppell defensive line featuring junior Soloman Thomas (6-3, 255) and senior William Udeh (6-2, 235).
Caraway (6-0, 200) threw for more than 2,400 yards, 22 touchdowns, and five interceptions in 2011, leading Longview to an 11-2 record and the Class 5A Division II Region II semifinals. Caraway is committed to ULM.
Longview will likely turn to Stephon Dunn at the quarterback spot. Dunn replaced Caraway during Saturday's game and finished 2-for-5 for 49 yards and one touchdown, a 46-yard catch-and-run by sophomore Ja'Mycal Hasty on the final play of the game. The Lobos are also high on sophomore quarterback Dezmond Chumley.
