Barth has three more big years left and will be looking to be one of those trench warriors that that Eagles have become known for. A player that has some power and uses his size well to stand up DL and get some impressive blocks in the trenches. One of the freshman lineman names to know in Kansas football.

Will be looking to play physical football and be a guy that may see more and more snaps as a junior coming up in 2023. Impressive lower body power, Frost reports a 455 pound squat. Great size and power, 290 pounds as a huge man on that East O-Line to watch out for. Also a tough wrestler, Frost brings a physical style of play that impresses and was one of the guys that was a big man that raised his profile at the 6Star Football Midwest Showcase in St. Joseph.

Turned in a 21.4 inch vertical. A good looking up and coming center on the line for Millard West this year, Gerhardt has a good offseason and is one of those risers that will think will have a good year in the trenches and a center to watch for that can get up the field and make some nice blocks right off the snap, also plays some DT. Just a sophomore also, Ryder has a lot of time to perfect his craft and become of of the top players at center in the state in the coming years.

Big men on the line and trenches from Augusta, 6-4, 280, top looking size for sure and a big man that uses his size well to be a blocker that can overpower guys on the defense to make some big holes, a key junior for the Orioles and a player that will be looking for a big senior season and one of those guys that has the size to jump onto some college radars also.
