Football

Nothing in between: LaPorte features a group of six running backs, affectionately known as the "dirt squirrels", who range in size from Detrick Merriweather (5-foot-3, 151 pounds), Caleb Kuzdas (5-5, 137) and Michael Peeples (5-6, 150) to Drayson Nespo (5-8, 170), Isaac Alexander (5-9, 181) and Gabe Chavez (5-10, 176).

"They're all little, quick twitch guys," coach Dave Sharpe said. "I feel like we have a system to maximize our talent."

What will make them dangerous in the Slicers offense is their ability to get lost behind a massive offensive line that includes Jake Thode (6-2, 278), Cesar Rosales (5-7, 275), converted tight end Kyle Simpkins (6-3, 225), Kameron Browder (6-0, 292), Felipe Marcano (5-8, 262), David Applegarth (5-10. 241) and tight end Mark Haines (6-3, 213). Even quarterback Nolan Lorenz is 6-2, 213.

"We're either huge or tiny. There's not a lot of in between," Sharpe said. "We've got big folks and little folks."
