Last season, the Irish lost in the Class 5A semifinals to eventual champion Carl Albert, and they know the offensive line will be crucial in their attempts to get past the semifinals, a round they've fallen in the past two seasons.

“They're the biggest part of our team, they're very tight-knit, very strong mentally and physically, and they're going to be good for our team this year,” senior quarterback Jacob Lewis said.

Jones said the emphasis this offseason has been building depth to allow some of the lineman who also play defense to catch a break.

That, in turn, has the Irish believing they have one of the best, if not the best, lines in Class 5A.

And they know what that declaration means.

“I definitely think if we're putting our name out there as the best offensive line in 5A, we're going to have a lot of challenges and we definitely have to make sure we bring it every day,” Raczkowski said.
