This could be one of the better offensive lines the Panthers have had in a few years. A blend of veteran experience and youthful athleticism should make for a front 5 that will move the line of scrimmage, open holes for the running backs and protect the passer.
The outside will be protected by Tennessee commit, Ray Raulerson and opposite of him, our #1 2015 offensive line prospect, Jake Fruhmorgen. Both are very nimble with long arms and use their hands well. They have good feet, great size and move well. They finish blocks, play low with leverage and can neutralize a defensive lineman.
Richard Bush will anchor the interior. Able to play any position on the offensive line, Bush provides the leadership upfront the Panthers will need to be successful vs their schedule. It is rumored that Bush knows every position’s responsibility on every offensive play (What routes are being run, what drop the QB is taking and the track of the RB). Ben Rowley and Wick Hudek are expected to be the guards. Big bodies who can mirror a target, adjust in space and finish blocks.
2 WINTER HAVEN
Surprise here, but the potential is sky high. Big bodies with quick feet. Mike Arnold will be the big name. He will be a big time recruit also. Romello Sekura, Maurice Spann and Johnny Footman are very good and will be tough to penetrate as a unit.
Underestimated! Contrary to popular belief, this unit was pretty good last year. Veterans return for another ride and are expected to be tough. Gary Brown is the monster. He is fast, strong as an ox and plays mean. Christian Loubriel will become more consistent. Cesar Perez can play both sides of the ball. Don Shepard and Brandon Shorter play like the opponent took their lunch a few times as freshmen [Pay Back].
4 PLANT CITY
If this Raider offensive line plays well, Plant City has a chance to make some real noise. Everything else is in place. Adequate QB, capable rushers and good enough defense…The Raiders can be a 7+ win team in 2013. Montel McBride is pretty darn good. Evan Crowell is a technician. Albel Fragoso and Quincy Robinson will be solid.
In Jesuit’s defense, the pieces are likely to fall in place, where this unit could end the season as one the best. It’s not how you start, but how you finish! Marc Jimenez is a promising youngster. Throw in Patrick Powers, Mike Rell, Jackson Dennis, Mike Suarez, Nick Cox and Clark Bullict and a number of guys have a chance to make for a really good Tiger offensive line.
Thomas Bartley, Deadreo Hudson, Evan Montriel and Willie Edom will be the foundation of the rebuilding Hawk line. These four will be pretty darn good with plenty of room to improve as the season grows.
