Illinois QB Kirk Johnson was hospitalized in fair condition yesterday after being injured in a one-car accident.
Johnson, who is slated to share starting duties with Kurt Kittner, suffered chest and head injuries Monday evening as a passenger in a car that crashed on Interstate 74, 10 miles east of Champaign, Ill. He will be a senior this fall.
The Brentwood, Tenn., native was returning from an Athletes in Action weekend convention, Illini Coach Ron Turner said.
In the April spring game, the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder was 13 of 28 for 115 yards with one interception.
HONORS: A school-record seven Georgetown men's lacrosse players have been named to the 1999 STX/United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division I all-American team. A Greg McCavera was named to the first team and D Anderson Bell was named to the third team. A Scott Urick (Robinson), MFs Tyler Gamble and Mike Henehan, D Greg Papa and G Brian Hole were honorable mention.
Navy junior G Mickey Jarboe and junior D Chad Donnelly also were named all-Americans.
Jarboe became the Midshipmen's all-time career saves leader and led the nation for more than a month in save percentage. He is the only goalie on the first team.
He ended with 215 saves, the second-most shots stopped by a Navy player in a single season, and posted a .650 saves percentage. Navy played five of the top 10 teams in the nation. In 14 games, Jarboe allowed 116 goals in leading the Mids to a 7-7 record.
Donnelly was named honorable mention after leading a defense that limited two of the most potent offenses (Delaware and Johns Hopkins) to some of their lowest goal-scoring contests.
Loyola's Jim Brown (third team) and Johns Hopkins's Brian Carcaterra (second team) also were named to the squad.
