Coach Farup's Preseason Assessment


Experience and size on the front lines both offense and defense, returning 4 of 5 starters on both lines, led by Taylor Hansen, Phil Grothaus, Ben Jones and Mike Chapin. Very good linebackers, led by senior Tanner Schwaninger at middle linebacker. Runningbacks will be strong with good depth, Tanner Schwaninger, Eli Stewart, Noah Free and Nathaniel Sauberan.  Jared Bubak will replace Logan Power at QB, he will be a force in our QB running game as well as a good passer.



Need to replace Logan Power,  Ben Plambeck and Leighton Chicoine. Jared Bubak will replace Logan, he will be a different style QB than we’ve had, we’ve adjusted our offense to utilize his strength, size and speed. We need to replace Leighton Chicoine most of all, Josh Buresh will be called upon to make plays and catches at the outside WR. Also a place where Leighton will be missed is in the defensive backfield at safety. Isaac Olsen and Eli Stewart will be called on to man the secondary along with Buresh at corner, we need to find another corner. Another issue will be, as always at Lincoln Christian, is depth at all positions. If we stay healthy we’ll be a contender for the playoffs but we lack numbers, we’ll only have 28 kids out in grades 9-12.
