Being a football player takes hard work, just like it does for our South Central Power linemen. The #lineman2lineman program is back, and this year we asked YOU to nominate your favorite high school lineman football player for recognition in October.
We’re recognizing several players here on our website, as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
