Harding junior quarterback Zac Haydock is expected to return to the field Friday against Snider.
Haydock, the son of Hawks coach Sherwood Haydock, has missed the last the last two games after separating his shoulder in a 16-14 loss to Class 2A No. 1 Bishop Luers on Sept. 10, where he had rushed for 76 yards on 12 carries in the first half.
He separated his shoulder in the second half and didn't tell anyone, according to his father.
This comes on top of an injured ankle he suffered in the preseason and bothered him early in the regular season.
All told, Sherwood Haydock figures his son has been injury-free for about only one half of football this year.
Without Zac Haydock, the Hawks lost two weeks ago 42-0 to Bishop Dwenger and beat Northrop (1-5) 21-20 last week after losing a 21-0 first-quarter advantage.
Harding (2-4, 2-3 SAC) travels to Spuller Stadium to play Snider (4-1, 4-1) on Friday.
