Buffalo State’s football team has lost quarterback Kyle Hoppy for the season with a torn ACL suffered in the fourth quarter of last Saturday’s 29-26 loss at Alfred University.
The former Orchard Park star passed for 2,258 yards and 22 touchdowns last season.
Hoppy, 23, played minor league baseball after graduating from Orchard Park. Academically, he is a junior at Buffalo State, but has two years of football eligibility left, plus he can apply to the NCAA for a medical redshirt for this season since he played in only two games before the injury.
Senior Dan Serignese is the likely replacement for Saturday’s game at Morrisville State. He appeared in six games last season, completing 32 of 63 passes with six touchdowns and no interceptions.
