NUMBER 44: TRISTAN CALLAHAN – BONNEVILLE
Callahan has been a beast for the Lakers and a phenomenal leader on their offensive line. He is a violent blocker and can read defensives with ease. Callahan isn’t a big name right now per say, but throughout the season his stock will continue to rise. He is a player that needs to gain more traction in the recruiting realm. He is a player that could really help a team improve on the line.
NUMBER 43: MOSES MAILEI – ALTA
Moses Mailei from Alta High School has proved to be an essential pillar of his team’s offense and has proved his mettle time and time again.

NUMBER 42: NATE RUST – PARK CITY
Rust is a great offensive leader and is more athletic than most lineman. He can do it all, including pulling. He can get from point A to point B in a flash, and will eliminate you from the play. Park City is a Championship caliber team that will need a player like Rust to play near perfect, and I am certain he is up for the task.
NUMBER 41: JACOB ZARATE – CRIMSON CLIFFS
Southern Utah is known for their superb line play. Zarate just proves that notion. He is everything a coach is looking for in a lineman. He has great size, hands, and feet. The Mustangs might have the most pressure on them due to their high expectations, but if players like Zarate can play to the level he is capable of, I am sure they can achieve their goal.
NUMBER 40: JONAH SULIAFA – WOODS CROSS
The combination of Pututau and Suliafa is going to be dominant next season. The Wildcats running game was suffocating last season and the reason was players like Suliafa carving up defensive lines. He is aggressive and strong and wears down defenses with his tenacity. I believe that Woods Cross will have one of the best rushing attacks in the state when August comes around.

NUMBER 30: CADE DRAPER – ROY
Draper was only a sophomore last season and is already taking the football world by storm. He was dominant last season and has built up quite the reputation. Draper is intelligent on and off the field and I believe has not even come close to reaching his ceiling. By his senior year my guess he will be a top five lineman in Utah.
NUMBER 29: COOPER MCGIVEN – MORGAN
McGiven is a natural. It’s like he was made to play football. He has great size at 6’1 and weighs 265. He is already peaking the interest of colleges and his stock will surely grow as the season progresses. Not to mention he has a shiny new ring on his finger. McGiven will captain a remarkable Trojan offensive line, and they will look to follow up their state championship with a second one.

Weston is one of the best players for Bear River and was a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season for the Bears. He received the accolade of an all-state nod and has potential to play college ball.
NUMBER 26: TAYLOR BLACK – SAN JUAN
Black has been a perennial starter for the Broncos, and was an integral part of two championship teams. He is the heart and soul of their offensive line and it is asinine how underrated he is. Black has a high football IQ and terrific leadership skills. Due to the fact that he plays in the far away land of Blanding he gets left off of similar lists. He is big and strong and can move any defensive lineman that gets in his way. Black will have three rings before his high school career is finalized.
