SEG’s Justin Venable was involved in an auto accident before Friday’s Falcon contest at Rockingham County. The car wreck happened last Thursday morning while Venable was on the way to school. The accident occured on Company Mill Road at Southeast School Road and Highway 421 South.
Venable had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance and it was determined that he suffered a serious concussion from the impact that he incured when the vehicles collided.
Justin missed Friday’s game at Rockingham County and may have to miss this week’s key conference clash with Eastern Randolph at SEG. Venable was named to the North Carolina Shrine Bowl roster last week as a defensive back.
Also missing from last Friday’s 17-10 loss to the RC Cougars for Southeast were DL Brandon Armstrong and LB Nathan Kroh. LB Josh York has been playing sparingly for the Falcons recently because of injury. All of the players mentioned above were out because of injuries. Kroh will not return, Venable is questionable, Armstrong is day-to-day and York will be ready to go, but how much remains to be seen.
Again, Justin Venable a defensive back from Southeast Guilford HS was in a car wreck last Thursday morning and was forced to sit out last Friday night’s game. Venable is OK but is still suffering some of the on-going symptoms from the concussion.
You may ask, how serious was this accident? Serious enough that Jusitn had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance, he had to miss last week’s game and may miss this week’s matchup with Eastern Randolph. Our thanks to the Venable family for the details we used in this article.
