Competitive Edge Combine OL/DL Report

ESP takes a look at the offensive and defensive lines. Specifically highlighting the top performers in the 1 on 1 competition…


Many of the offensive linemen had success in the 1 on 1 drills, but there were two that stood out. Mike Holzberger of Kentlake high school is a 2010 prospect that has the size to play at the next level. He showed good feet and the agility to be able to stay in front of most D-lineman that came his way. He has good hands and will definetly be one to watch in the SPSL this season.

Joshua Garnett got his name out last year in this same combine, as an 8th grader. He did not dissapoint in his sophmore campaign. He had great technique and a mean streak that saw many of his opponents finding their way to the ground. He will finally get a chance to play at the high school level this season. (9th grade is still Jr. High in the Puyallup district) He claims a verbal offer from UCLA and I would not be shocked to see more offers headed his direction, he should be one of the state's top prospects for the next couple years.


Overall the defense seemed to win most of the battles, with a majority of the players finding the QB. However, there was one player that went undefeated in the round robin portion. Dylan Zylstra, a 2010 DE from Kentridge high school, used speed to blow by offensive lineman. Along with speed, he showed his aggressive nature by clubbing opponents whenever possible and hyping up his defensive teammates. Zylstra has been hearing from colleges already and his recruitment should continue to heat up as the season starts up.
