Every week, we will highlight some of the best linemen from the WVC and LFC presented by Honesdale National Bank. Here is Week 10:

ALEX CASTELLANO, Lackawanna Trail
The Lions’ linemen have been one big reason for their unbeaten season. Castellanos has been one of the most consistent of the bunch and has helped Trail average 43 points per game while allowing only 11. He gets it done on both sides of the ball.

ZACH HATALA, North Pocono
Hatala has been a steady presence on both the offensive and defensive lines this season. The Trojans scored their second highest point total of the season in the win over Crestwood. They were very balanced on offense and Hatala also made plays from his defensive tackle position.

Snyder has been the face of the Bulldogs the past couple years, doing whatever was needed to compete on a high level. He switched to tight end where he was an effective blocker and continued to be one of the better defensive players in the WVC.

Dunmore has found their running game again and Talutto is one of their better run blockers. He had three pancake blocks on Friday against West Scranton. On defense, he added two tackles in the win.

Wiaterowski continues to be one of the better guards in the WVC. His quickness for his size helps him when he pulls as this week he had five pancake blocks. He also continues to be the short-yardage back for the Trojans.
