Let’s take a look at some of the state’s best football players that don’t get enough recognition playing on the offensive and defensive lines. Many times you will know of a team with a good record and good skill players but not know the guys up front leading the way.
Jake Guidone – Xaverian Brothers HS – RG/DT – Guidone is a 6’4″ and 280 pound senior lineman who is committed to Dartmouth. He is a dominant force in the Xaverian run game and will be leaned on heavily on Friday night against BC High and in the upcoming divisional playoffs.
Cory Ryder – Nantucket HS – C/LS – Ryder is in the discussion as one of the state’s best lineman and one of the country’s best long snappers. At 6’4″ and 295 pounds, this Holy Cross commit has dominated opponents as the Whalers maintain a perfect 6-0 record.
Trumayne Guy – Braintree HS – T/DT – While Bryant bound teammate Greg Wood gets most of the attention, Guy at 6’7″ and 285 pounds is a junior lineman who will be receiving a lot of interest from schools over the remainder of his high school career.
Mark Mulvaney – Holliston HS – T/DT – This 6’2 and 265 pound lineman leads the way for QB Jack Barrett and the Panthers. Has been offered by Columbia with other schools still interested.
Patrick Flynn – Hanover HS – G/DT – At 6’4″ and 275 pounds Flynn has led the Indians to a perfect record so far this season. A recent UNH commit he looks to lead Hanover deep into the Divisional playoffs.
Ben Murphy – Newton North HS, Bridgton Academy – DT – A good athlete as he also played basketball and is relatively new to football. Murphy is 6’2″ and 287 pounds and has received interest from several schools around the Northeast.
Alec Lindstrom – Shepard Hill HS – G/DE – This Boston College commit leads the way for RBs Kevin Mensah and Brendan McKeon. At 6’4″ and 240 pounds this senior lineman is one of the best in the state.
Quinn Murphy – Duxbury HS – T/DT – Murphy is 6’6″ and 300 pound sophomore for the undefeated Dragons. With two full years of high school left he could become one of the top prospects in the state of Massachusetts.
Finn Dirstine – Acton-Boxborough HS, Lawrence Academy – T/DT – This 6’5″ and 320 pound junior has terrorized the ISL as he paves the way for RB AJ Dillion. With another year of high school football left, Dirstine has received interest from many top programs and has offers from Boston College, Miami, Illinois and U Mass. He also recently visited Notre Dame and Alabama.
Patrick Watson – BC High – T/DT – A 6’5″ and 300 pound force who clears the way for RB Danny Abraham, QB Connor Cady and the Eagles’ potent running attack. A senior who has received interest from around the Northeast.
Patrick Bien-Aime – Medford HS – T/DT – At 6’3″ and 330 pounds this is a large force who plays both ways for Medford. We think you will agree after watching this… http://www.hudl.com/video/3/4395355/57e1ee17688ec446a49107f9
