Heritage Hall sophomore Marc Robinson has added more than 20 pounds since the end of last football season. The question is, how much more will he grow? Robinson is 5-foot-11 but he said his dad is about 6-5. "I’ve been told I’m still going to grow some more inches,” Robinson said. "I feel like I’m still growing.” Robinson is one of six returning starters on defense. He said the biggest difference entering this season is the year of experience has helped him learn the intricacies of the game.Comments
NEWKIRK RETURNS PLENTYNewkirk coach Barrett Shupe hasn’t had to worry much about filling holes during preseason practice. The Tigers have 10 returning starters on offense and nine on defense, including linebacker Ty Goodno. Goodno (5-11, 225) had 152 tackles last season. The three-year starter has 416 for his career. He’s also an offensive lineman. Another starting linebacker, Trevor Presson, returns after registering more than 90 tackles as a junior. Quarterback Shea Johnston returns after throwing for 1,457 yards.
WILLIAMS COMING ON STRONGKen Berry might be the face of John Marshall football, but according to Berry, there are plenty of other talented players on the roster. One of those, John Marshall coach Bruce Troxell says, is senior defensive end/offensive tackle James Williams. Williams (6-3, 260) has come on strong in the offseason after registering six sacks as a junior.
BLUNDELL LEADS THE WAYKingfisher senior linebacker Rhett Blundell isn’t the biggest player on the roster at 5-foot-11, 195 pounds, but Blundell might be the most irreplaceable. Blundell is one of five returning starters on Kingfisher’s defense. He registered 181 tackles as a junior.
