Vencl bigger key for WolverinesLast season, Garber’s Hayden Vencl had good numbers for a tight end — 398 yards and four TDs. He’s expected to play an even bigger role. "We’re probably going to throw to him more,” Harmon said. "We think he’s one of the best tight ends in the state.” Harmon has seen his share of them, including Brady Bond, who now plays for Oklahoma State. But Bond was more of a blocking tight end. Vencl is there to catch passes. Harmon even said Vencl, who was also a standout on the Red Devils’ state finalist basketball team, would at least occasionally move out to split end. And he’s pretty good on defense, too. "He’s probably as good of a defensive end as he is a tight end,” Harmon said. "It’s just people think of him as a tight end.” By Ryan Aber
"We’ve got a chance to contend for that four spot, but we’ve lost a great class.” Evans has been an all-district defensive end since he was a freshman, but needs likely will force him to linebacker. On offense, there’s a good chance he’ll see time at running back. Evans has spent time this summer working out with the five former Ringwood players from last year’s team who will play college football this year.
