OLine weathers tough test

On Friday night, the Huskies’ offensive line faced a big, strong, Rams’ defensive line. The Dogs also had to shuffle personnel around when left tackle, Darren Hinds left the game with an injury in the first quarter. Right guard, Mike Fuller, moved to left tackle and Brandon Myre moved to Fuller’s spot at guard. The OLine had a tough first half, but managed to get better as the game wore on. “We were up against some pretty big guys who were physical at the start of the game,” commented centre, Brad Nehring. “We stepped up our game and I think we wore them down and took advantage of it.” Nehring noted that there is room for improvement for the big men up front. “Our performance was average. We can definitely get a lot better. We made mistakes – I know that I made a few bad ones myself. We can only get better from here.”

Hopefully the offensive line can remain healthy and have a chance to gel, but if not, Nehring remains upbeat about the unit’s potential. “We have lots of guys who can play. We’re quick learners, we can play lots of positions, and we have good coaches to help us.”
