Hopewell senior running back Rushel Shell will not play in tonight's game against New Castle. According to multiple sources, the nation's No. 24 player in the ESPNU 150 has a mild concussion and is being held out as a precaution.
Shell reportedly suffered the concussion last week against Blackhawk. In an interview with ESPNHS earlier this week, Shell made no mention of the concussion but did say he was excited to play against Central Valley in a game that will be televised on ESPNU. Shell is expected to make his college decision on that day as well.
