Gorham High senior Andrew Rent, the Varsity Maine Player of the Year in boys’ soccer last fall, is scheduled to undergo knee surgery Thursday and will be out for the season.

Rent sustained a torn ACL and torn meniscus in his right knee about 15 minutes into Gorham’s opening game against Portland on Sept. 5.

Rent, who made a verbal commitment in April to continue his soccer career at Boston University, said he is scheduled to begin rehabilitation on Friday.

“It’s pretty much six to nine months,” he said of his expected recovery period. “So out for the season and pretty much all the way through the school year.”

The Rams reached the Class A state title game last fall, falling 1-0 to two-time champion Lewiston. They are 3-1-1 this season, beating Portland, Cheverus and Deering, falling to Falmouth and tying Marshwood.

A four-year starter for Gorham, Rent played left back as a freshman and midfield as a sophomore before moving up to forward last fall, when he scored 16 goals and set up nine others. He either scored or assisted on every Rams postseason goal last fall.

Gorham Coach Tim King said it was “absolutely heartbreaking” for Rent to be sidelined  his senior season.
