If they had an eating contest between the offensive lines of St. John Bosco and Long Beach Poly, they’d probably run out of food.
When the two teams meet in a Pac-5 Division semifinal showdown on Friday night at Cerritos College, the play of the offensive lines will be as huge as the players themselves.
St. John Bosco had the consensus No. 1 offensive line last season, and the Braves have been quietly making weekly improvement with a group of young players that will be future stars. They include 6-foot-4, 295-pound sophomore Wyatt Davis. And the Braves have seniors Matt Katnik (6-4, 316 pounds) and Zach Robertson (6-5, 328 pounds) to train their “little brothers.”
Poly’s line came through with a clutch performance last week in the quarterfinals against Crespi, giving quarterback Josh Love the time to throw. And the Jackrabbits can certainly stand up to the Braves with 6-8, 330-pound Gabriel Rivera the biggest of the big.
The lines should have a little wager: Winner buys lunch, though that could be a big bill.
