Football: It's the year of the lineman this season

Written by Mike White on .

Mike White takes a look at who the WPIAL's top linemen are this season.

"Like a senior class in high school, a senior class of talent in WPIAL/City League football can take on a personality. Some years, it might be above average for major-college talent, while other years it might be mediocre or below average. A class can be loaded at one position.

The class of 2018 lays it on the line.

The WPIAL senior class is heavy with heavy guys, er, linemen. So far, 15 seniors from the WPIAL have made verbal commitments to FBS schools. Ten of those 15 are linemen, and some of them were heavily recruited. One of the biggest is 6-foot-5, 310-pound Blake Zubovic. Two of the best are Thomas Jefferson's Devin Danielson and Butler's Jake Kradel.

Thomas Jefferson has two linemen committed to Pitt — defensive tackle Danielson and defensive end Noah Palmer."
