Top Returning Players
Logan Jurgensmeier: Senior 6'4" 225 TE-OLB Logan will be a 3 year starter for
us this fall, and played some as a freshman, too. He is a big, athletic kid who
has good hands and can run. He has moved around on offense from running back to
tight end, and we played him at split end some last year too. He caught 17 balls
for 337 yards last year and 4 TD's. He is a returning first team all-district
performer at tight end. Defensively, he has manned our OLB position for 2 years
now, which is our toughest position to play. He should have a monster year at
that position this year. There is no substitute for experience at that spot. He
recorded 22 solo and 27 assisted tackles last year, 1 fumble recovery and 2
blocked kicks. He will have to have a big year for us to be successful.
Terrill Henrich Junior 6'2" 170 WR-DB Terrill was first team all-district
punter last year as a sophomore. This was his first varsity season as our
punter, and he had a good one. He punted 41 times for an ave. of 34.1 yards per
punt. He also executed several fake punts that were all successful. He is an
ex-quarterback, so he can throw and run. This makes him a threat every time we
drop back to punt. He will also be one of our go-to guys at wide receiver this
year. In a back-up role last year, he caught13 passes for 288 yards and 2 TD's
(22.2 ave). He also rushed for 187 yards on 23 carries (8.1 ave) and 1 TD. He is
a very elusive runner after he gets the ball in his hands, and has great speed.
His hands are better than average, so we like to use him on the outside. He will
be used much more on defense this fall, somewhere in the defensive backfield. He
is not a great hitter yet, which has limited his snaps on defense in the past.
He will have a great year for us this fall!
This team will be a work in progress. We have several skill kids that return from a solid 8-3 team that will play key roles for us. We return 4 starters on offense and 4 on defense, so the cupboard is not bare. This is our second year in a row of breaking in a new QB, which is always a challenge. We feel that we have the kids to run and catch the ball, so our passing game looks like a strength, if we get adequate QB play. Our offensive line will need to be re-built, and that is our main concern on offense. We do not have great size to rely on, so we will have to have great technique and play with a lot of heart. Defensively, we feel that our defensive backfield could be our strength, as we return several key players who played a lot last year. Our linebacking corp will need to grow up fast, as we lost our two leading tacklers from this group. We do return an all-district punter, but we will need to develop a kicking specialist. We have many question marks, but our kids will rise to the challenge and compete each week.
