Playing the defensive line isn’t all that it is cracked up to be. Sure they can get sacks and the occasional tackle for loss. The primary objective is to occupy the offensive lineman and deal with a multitude of blocking assignments. Ishmael or “Ish” for short is one of the solid 4 that have been making an impact all year on the defensive line. At times outshined by others on the defensive line, this week “Ish” had the best game against the largest offensive line that we have faced all year. Ish played tough in the trenches earning 10 total tackles and 1 forced fumble. Only a junior, his solid play will be continuing to make an impact throughout the rest of the season.
