Disclaimer: I’m not made for the blogging world.

I was sitting at my sister’s baby shower watching football highlights on my phone…and was thinking you never see any recognition for linemen. (if there is I’ve never seen it) The news outlets always talk about the glorified positions but not the players who protect all of the “Star Players”

I’m putting my foot down and will start weekly awards for the best lineman of the week. That’s the best I can do to put the Gridiron Trench Crew on the pedestal where they belong. 

Quenton Nelson

Needless to say, no better athlete to kick off this weekly award from the juggernaut himself. I’ve heard football players yell before but there’s pain and suffrage behind his voice. Sorta reminded me of Bobby Boucher making a tackle after someone bashing H20. I would love to know what drives him.

Dion Dawkins

This is the greatest achievement any lineman could achieve besides an epic pancake block. Scoring a touchdown for a big boy is the equivalence of finding a Blank Check on the ground and changing your name to Macintosh.

Blessed to have a weekend filled with incredible linemen plays. Congrats to Quenton and Dion for the first ever “In The Trenches Awards”. If you guy ever catch a linemen doing something amazing feel free to send it my way, thank you have a great day.
