Liberty looking to mold cohesive offensive line

On paper, Liberty’s 2009 offensive line looked a bit undersized. But when it came time to make hustle plays, that group always seemed to find a way.

They set an example that helped lead the Patriots all the way to the Class 3A state title game.

This year, Liberty’s line is bigger, but the question is, can they come together like last season?

It helps to have one holdover from last season in junior Jalen Robinson and, according to coach Steve Valach, Brandon Ryberg — he will step in at guard — is the kind of do-anything player the Patriots need.

Anthony Olobia, who suffered a season-ending injury in the first game of the season last year, and Drez Henfield, are expected to make an impact at tackle.

There are other players vying for starting spots, but the key is going to be how strong their bond as a group grows and how they help create opportunities for Liberty’s talented trio at the skill positions.
