Every week, we will highlight some of the best linemen from the WVC and LFC presented by Honesdale National Bank. Here is Week 8:

CARTER FAUBEL, Delaware Valley
Faubel was part of a defensive line that stuffed the Valley View running game holding the Cougars to 86 yards on the ground. He also had a sack and an interception at the end of the game on a screen pass to clinch the victory and put the Warriors in a first place tie for the division.

JAKE GRIMALDI, Abington Heights
The Comets defense was stout holding Scranton QB Billy Maloney to 16 yards rushing and Grimaldi was part of that crew up front. He ended up with 11 tackles, 3 tackles-for-loss and sack as Abington Heights as they upset the previously ranked Knights.

DAN HORGAN, Wilkes-Barre
All of the sudden the Wolfpack are a power running team with Horgan being one of the main reasons why with a excellent run blocking. Wilkes-Barre had two 100-yard rushers for the second straight week and now are in a position to be in the playoffs with two games remaining.

NATE SWINGLE, Western Wayne
Swingle set the tone with two early tackle for losses for the Wildcats defense which shut out Dunmore, but he was even more impressive on the offensive side of the ball with his run and pass blocking to help Western Wayne score 44 points and stay in first place in LFC II.

The Patriots offense was very good and balanced again this week and Zaldonis is part of an offensive line that has improved throughout the season. Pittston scored 55 points and put up 366 yards of total offense and kept pace with Wyoming Area in the division.
