Mile High Prep Reports Top Returning O-Lines Class 2A

Picking the top returning Offensive Lineman was a very challenging feat.  It was a lot of digging through who was lost and who is coming back.  An offensive line could be hurt by departures of a few players or could strengthen.  This was one of the toughest things to pick so I am not putting them in any order!  If you think I am missing someone or have the wrong info please message me.  It’s very tough to know exactly what offensive linemen have graduated or returning.

High SchoolStats
Eaton HSEaton will be hardest hit by graduation on the offensive line possibly losing 4 starters on the offensive line.  New leaders will have to emerge for Eaton to repeat as state champions.  Jacob Webster, Seth Bean, and Jarrod Robinson are the returning seniors on a very young offensive line this season.
Platte Valley HSPlatte Valley had a bit of a retooling season last year and return a very healthy chunk of their offensive line this season.  Platte Valley at a minimum return 3 starters on the offensive line.  Nikolas Bergers, Logan Cogburn, and Cole Halley look to be the returning size for Platte Valley.
Moffat County HSMoffat County will be returning a very experienced offensive line possibly losing just 1 senior.  Moffat County will look to make a deeper playoff run and the offensive line could be a big reason why.  The offensive line will be very important as Moffat County searchers for a new QB.
Alamosa HSAlamosa will be returning plenty of experience on their offensive line this season.  Alamosa could be returning up to 3 seniors on the offensive line.  Alamosa will have one of the more experienced offensive lines and this group could take a big step this season.
Florence HSFlorence moves into Class 2A this season and their offensive line will be the most important part of their move into the bigger classification.  Florence returns at least 3 starters on the offensive line.  Look for this group to make big strides this season.
Faith ChristianFaith Christian offensive line will be one of the more experienced groups losing just 1 starter on the offensive line.  Faith Christian will return plenty of experience and could push this team into the playoffs this season. 
The AcademyThe Academy had a big surge in offensive production and a lot of that goes to a young offensive line.  The Academy will return at least 3 starters on the offensive line and this group could help push The Academy into the playoffs.  Carlitos Rodriguez and Michael Mock could lead a very tough offensive line group.
Brush HSBrush reached the state championship last season.  Brush will have a few holes to fill from last season but could see a strong core come back.  Brush may have to replace 3 starters on their offensive line but look to Kaden Castrup and Dominick Ontiveros to step up and be leaders.
University HSUniversity lose a very talented group across the board including their offensive line.  Possibly 3 starters could be graduating from the offensive line.  The offensive line group this season will be very important as University retools the skill position.  Tyler Wagner, Ben Lovin, and Paul Swanson are three players I could see stepping up for University on the offensive line.
Englewood HSEnglewood was very young last season with Zero Seniors on the offensive line.  This group was very young and inexperience a year ago but look for this unit to make big strides this year.  Englewood will need the offensive line to be strong as they develop new skill position players.
D’Evelyn HSD’Evelyn is another team that could see improved offensive line play.  D’Evelyn possibly returns 3 starters on the offensive line and this group will be very important if D’Evelyn plans to make the playoffs.  D’Evelyn will look to Kafui Fiadonu and Mason Shull to be leaders this season.
Classical AcademyClassical Academy had a solid playoff run a year ago and look to repeat that this season.  TCA could possibly lose 3 starters on the offensive line but I don’t think this group see much of a setback.  Plenty of upcoming seniors will be looking to step up and help TCA reach the playoffs once again.
