SHARE Coach: Glenbrook North’s David Burnside done for season

Glenbrook North junior David Burnside will miss the remainder of the football season after tearing the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, Spartans coach Bob Pieper said via email on Wednesday.

Burnside injured his knee on Glenbrook North’s first drive in its 31-6 victory over Niles North on Friday. He was tackled awkwardly on the play in which his knee was injured: His leg stayed planted in the Vikings’ artificial turf as a Niles North defender tackled him from the side.

The injury figures to be a big one for Glenbrook North. Burnside earned all-conference CSL North honors as a sophomore a year ago, and he has started as both a wide receiver and defensive back this season.

The Spartans (4-3 overall, 3-0 CSL North) host Maine West on Friday. Pieper has said he thinks his team needs to win its final two regular-season games to advance to the postseason.

The posterior cruciate ligament is the strongest ligament in the knee, according to the National Library of Medicine, and “extends from the top-rear surface of the tibia (bone between the knee and ankle) to the bottom-front surface of the femur (bone that extends from the pelvis to the knee).”
