As for CHC's OL, the core group of players have a different feel than the past two seasons. From what I have seen and been told, they definitely have an edge/mentality that has been missing in the past few seasons. They are young for the most part, outside of Manocheh & JP McManus, who has really stepped into a leadership role since the 2011 season ended. A core group of 7 or 8 OL/DL have been working together since the spring and attending various linemen camps together on their own. CHC's Center was playing his first year of organized football as a 12th grader last year and one or two of the other returning linemen basically disappeared after the 2010 Turkey Bowl and showed up in August 2011. That is good and well, as we are still talking about high school. You can't blame a kid for wanting to have a life outside of football. However, that is not happening now!
CHC has 2 or 3 very good OL who will be sophomores this season who are already on the cusp of starting. They have Harco's best OL coming in along with a couple of other freshmen OL they are high on who will be playing JV as freshmen. I think Don Davis & the CHC staff have done a great job addressing the OL lately.
I, along with a couple other people I know were asking the same questions about the CHC OL the past couple of seasons. Personally, I do not think it was necessarily the blocking schemes last year. I know the OL coaches are not teaching bad technique.They have the same OL coach that coached a nasty, undersized, technically sound group in 2009 than beat the snot out of Gilman' front 7 and had them one yard away from winning the MIAA Championship that season. It's just my opinion. It's not any more or less important than anyone else's. A couple of former CHC OL close to the program came to the same conclusion.
I let the cat out of the bag last Thursday and the folks at the I-95 Kickoff Challenge made it official when they announced the venues and times for the games yesterday evening. Calvert Hall and Dunbar will play on August 31st at Towson's Unitas Stadium at 7:45.
It's August 1st and WCAC schools are hitting the practice fields today. MIAA and the publics will be officially ramping things up in the very near future as well. The Calvert Hall OL/DL and their ability to get to the QB has been addressed. A rising transfer DE from the class of 2014 is now officially a Calvert Hall Cardinal. CHC will most definitely have on of the youngest and most formidable DE tandems in the state next season. OT's will have their hands full, to say the least... even Gilman's.
So you are saying Dunbar 2 Sr. D1 bound OT are going to get their arses kicked all game by two highly "camp" rated freshmen DE? We are talking about freshmen..... I get it.. you guys want me out of hybernation... Freshman?!
The new CHC DE is not from Digital Harbor.. The DH transfer (Woods) is a reserve WR.
I Seen the DE and he is a stud. I think he will be a Great Addition to chc this Season
