Every week, we will highlight some of the best linemen from the WVC and LFC presented by Honesdale National Bank. Here is Week 3:

JOHN JONES, Crestwood
The Comets offensive line came back on a mission for 2022. The experienced unit weren’t happy with the 2021 season. Jones was a major factor last Friday as Crestwood rushed for 532 yards. He had four pancake blocks in the win over Wyoming Area.

Dunmore’s offense ran wild in a big win over Susquehanna putting up 54 points. Reuther was efficient in the run blocking and pass protection that helped the Bucks rack up 437 total yards. He also added a couple tackles on the defensive side of the ball.

NICK SCIANDRA, Pittston Area
Sciandra was one of the leaders on the offensive line that helped the Patriots to their first win of the season. He was able to power the running game to 197 rushing yards and the pass protection was also good allowing Pittston to throw for 130 yards.

MAX SHNIPES, Scranton Prep
The Cavaliers front was dominating in the blowout win over Lake-Lehman. Shnipes had multiple tackles which included two sacks. He has been one of the better run stoppers in the early season but showed his ability to get to the quarterback as well.

NATE SWINGLE, Western Wayne
Swingle was the best two-way lineman for the Wildcats in their win over Old Forge. The offense rushed for 301 yards and passed for 123. On defense, he recorded five tackles including a sack and three quarterback hurries.
