Tough line to crack
August 25, 2010 - Throughout the off season the Clarkston Wolves have proven themselves on and off the field.
|The offensive line is charged with protecting quarterbacks Mitch Baenziger and Nick Demattia and opening holes for running back Joey Goss. While these hardy souls do tough work in the trenches they rarely get recognition. We at The Clarkston News would like to give them some love, so here is your O-line: from the left, Lucas Sanders, Aaron Wright, Matt Goebel, Craig Columbo, Nick Matich and Nick McInally. Go Wolves!
