Dominant Defensive Line at Westbrook

The defensive line at Westbrook High School in Beaumont (Texas) is stacked. At least three players on their line have a chance to play for Division I programs. Head Coach Craig Stump talked about his defensive line prospects and also mentioned a couple of his offensive players as well.

"They are just juniors," Stump said. "All are athletic and have size. They haven't done anything yet, but it's their turn to."

Westbrook has a pair of gifted defensive ends. Marcus Malbrough and Blake Chavis already have the size and athleticism to be major college prospects. They just need to get on the field and show recruiters what they've got.

The 6-foot-5, 230 pound Malbrough should start hearing from Division I colleges in the near future.

The top programs throughout the nation should also pay close attention to the kid playing opposite Malbrough on the defensive line. The 6-foot-5, 240 pound Chavis carries a load of athletic ability and potential on to the football field.

Playing in between these talented defensive ends is a mammoth defensive tackle. The 6-foot-3, 295 pound Ryan Pollard has the skills to play both offensive and defensive tackle.

"Somebody is going to sign all of these kids," Stump said.

Coach Stump also mentioned several skill players that could make an impact on the next level.

Running back Albert Williams is a speedster with a ton of potential. The 5-foot-11, 175 pound Williams will need to make some game breaking plays over the next two years to gather D-1 attention.

"He is real fast, quick, and strong," Stump said.

David Falgout plays both ways for Westbrook. The 6-foot-0, 185 pound Falgout should play a major part in the team's success in the upcoming weeks.

"He is real smart," Stump said. "He is a good football player. He can play quarterback or safety for us."
