Every week, we will highlight some of the best linemen from the WVC and LFC presented by Honesdale National Bank. Here is Week 3:
EVAN DEAN, Western Wayne
Dean has been a valuable member of both lines for the Wildcats to start the season. On offense, he helped to pave the way for 290 rushing yards and on defense, he had six tackles and a quarterback hurry. Dean is a true run-stopper in the middle of the Western Wayne defense.
JAVON JAMES, Scranton
James picked up right where he left off from last season. He is a mauler on offense helping the Knights rush for 299 yards. On defense, he constantly beat double teams this past week to harass ball carries and chase down the quarterbacks.
NATHAN REUTHER, Dunmore
Reuther’s experience is evident on the offensive side of the ball. He is strong and his technique is excellent. The Bucks were able to run the ball behind him with success. On defense, he is tough up front and had 2.5 tackles including a tackle for a loss.
DAN SABULSKI, Dallas
Besides having a great game on the offensive line and helping Dallas win their third straight, Sabulski had the honor to wear No. 76 for the Mounts. That number was worn by former player Josh Balara, who passed away earlier this year after a battle with cancer. Sabulski is a good lineman, but it tells you more about is character that he was selected.
JERRY WASLICHAK, VALLEY VIEW
The veteran and the leader of the Cougars line, Wasilchak is off to a good start to the season. He is a powerful run blocker and very good in pass protection. Valley View had 399 yards of total offense and scored 40 points.
