Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert is always looking for new ways to improve.

The Chargers went 8-4 last season in what was known as a rebuilding year. This season, though, switching to the spread formation has the players adapting once again.

For junior quarterback Connor McGinnis, it's a welcome sight to see four receivers spread out after throwing for 1,505 yards and 14 touchdowns last season.

But the offensive line has remained a big concern for Bogert and his staff — until recently.

After the first week of practice, multiple players volunteered to convert to the offensive line, adding depth and size.

“If they buy into it, then we'll be a little more solid on the line,” Bogert said. “What it'll do is we'll end up getting everybody the rest that they need.”

Running back AJ Knowles, at 260 pounds, will move to right tackle, and linebacker Elliot LeBlanc will also convert to the line. They will be joined by Kaleb Gfeller at center and 6-foot-6, 330-pound sophomore Luther Harris at left tackle.

The changes also allow the athleticism that is on the defensive end to move to the offense.
