The Cougars have a few offensive playmakers, but it's the players blocking for them who form a unit that second-year coach Ed Jenkins believes is the team's biggest strength.
The offensive line is anchored by four-year starter Chase McKevitt, who has moved from center to left tackle. He'll be joined by senior right tackle Brayden Shepard, sophomore right guard Mason Thomas, junior center Kevin McClellan and sophomore left guard Jake Lemon.
Senior fullback/linebacker Brandon Bowman might be among the most underrated players in Class AA. Jenkins called Bowman one of the hardest working players he has ever coached.
"He's our emotional leader and physical leader," Jenkins said. "He has a great nose for the ball defensively and he really sets the tone as our blocking fullback."
