Team Preview: Snow College

Last season, Snow wound up being the only team to come within a score of Arizona Western and they return a ton of talent on both sides of the ball. Today we at take a look at some of the Badgers' top prospects and what to watch out for this fall...

It's unclear who the Badgers will have under center, but whoever winds up winning the starting quarterback job, he will have one of the top returning tailbacks in the country at his disposal.

Last season, Breon Allen totaled 771 yards and 10 touchdowns while splitting carries with Alamoti Vaenuku who has graduated.

Allen is lightning in a bottle, possessing 4.4 speed, but he also admitted to recently that he loves to block and the film shows that the Badgers will use him in a number of different roles - blocker, slot receiver, tailback, returner.

When Snow wants to throw the ball, they most likely will target Damond Powell who led the team with 29 receptions while finishing second in yards with 606 and touchdowns with four.

TE Tyler Barron has a huge frame and he showed solid receiving skill as a freshman last season hauling in 10 receptions for 116 yards.

Along the offensive line, Snow is led by Ryan Mulitalo, who was a big-time recruit coming out of high school, and the expectation is that his stock will rise steadily with a solid 2012 season.

Justin Manu will hold down one of the tackle spots and with his outstanding size and quick feet, he'll be a player to keep an eye on this fall.

Defensively, along the line, the Badgers have brothers Ofa Hautau and Siale Hautau.

Ofa already has offers from Utah, Utah State and BYU after totaling 20 tackles and two sacks as a freshman last year.

Siale is getting plenty of early attention as well after racking up 20 tackles, seven tackles-for-loss and three sacks in 2011.

At linebacker, Snow is pretty young, but they do have an emerging star in Jake Miller who played sparingly in 2011, but he's got the size and athleticism necessary to garner a lot of attention from four-year schools with a big sophomore season.

In the secondary, the Badgers are led by one of the top cover-corners in the country as Ronald Tyler locked down his side of the field in 2011 by posting 29 tackles, 12 passes defensed and two interceptions.

Also helping out at corner will be Shawn Sharkey and Zach Christian while Brian Cobbs returns at safety after totaling 18 tackles and two interceptions in 2011.

Snow's out of conference games this season include the likes of North Dakota State College of Science and Georgia Military College and they end with their big matchup on the road in Yuma, Az. to take on Arizona Western in what will likely be the deciding game for the WSFL title.
