Every week, we will highlight some of the best linemen from the WVC and LFC presented by Honesdale National Bank. Here is Week 2:

IAN BEDNAR, Wilkes-Barre
The Wolfpack controlled the line of the scrimmage on offense and Bednar was the best of the bunch up front for Wilkes-Barre. The ‘Pack ran for 294 yards in their first win of the season defeating Abington Heights on the road.


ROCCO FLUCK, Honesdale
Fluck controlled the edge in Honesdale’s shutout of Wyoming Area. He made 13 tackles including 2 tackles for loss and a sack as the Hornets limited the Warriors offense to 173 for the road victory. It was the first time Honesdale has beaten Wyoming Area.

Higgins was the best lineman on both sides of the ball for the Vikings as they managed 451 yards of offense and limited Mid Valley to 197 total yards. He was especially good in the running game which ended up with 208 yards. It was the first win of the year for Riverside.

JEFF KOZERSKI, Holy Redeemer
The Royals scored a school record 70 points and Kozerski, a four-year starter at right tackle anchored the line and helped lead the way for the Royals to gain 403 total yards and average nearly 13 yards a carry on the ground. His night included 4 pancake blocks.

Nicotera continued to be Scranton Prep’s best linemen. After being named All-District on the offensive side of the ball, he is now standing out even more on the defensive side of the ball and that was evident in the Cavaliers shuout win over West Scranton.
