Texas pledge, Westlake quarterback Sam Ehlinger suffers injury

Posted October 7th, 2016


Westlake quarterback Sam Ehlinger was hurt in the first quarter of Friday night’s game against Lake Travis.

The Chaparral senior was injured while being sacked midway through the period. His right thumb on his throwing hand was wrapped with ice as he made his way off the field at halftime.

Ehlinger returned to the Chaps last week against Hays after recovering from knee injuries suffered in the opener against Katy.


Lake Travis has a 29-0 lead at halftime. Charlie Brewer has a pair of touchdown passes.

Ehlinger is committed to the University of Texas and is a 4-star rated prospect by 247 Sports.
