I was reading about the 2012 Hillman football team in the Auburn Journal, when I got to thinking how big their front line will be when they take to the field this fall. Which was not the topic covered in the local paper.

The Front line

Eddie Vanderdoes - 6'4" 295lbs who power cleaned 335 pounds
James Hubbard - Is listed as an OL and DE on the maxpreps website, lifted 315lbs
Nate Duvall - Was listed at 6'4" 245 as a junior while playing for Golden Sierra, lifted 300 lbs    
Isaiah Pinero-  Plays WR and DB is listed at 6'4" 190lbs. He also averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds for the Hillman as a junior on their basketball team. He is an athletic wide-out who should see his fair share of balls thrown his way.


The Hillman do return their starting QB, Peter Denham. The right handed senior worked out with Boise State's quarterback coach, Coach Pease over the break and many believe he is a prospect. In 2011 while playing as a junior he led Placer High to a 9-3 season, he averaged 90 yards through the air per game with five touchdowns on the season. Denham is 6' tall 190lbs and runs a 4.75 forty.

Back Field

While the Hillmen did graduate their top rushers, they do have a reload in Michael Robinson who scored 84 points while playing fullback as a junior. He is a ground and pound type back and looking at the size of the boys who will be opening the running lanes there might be a lot of pounding.


Also returning for Placer head coach Joey Montoya is inside linebacker Tony Suverkropp (5'11" and 195lbs) who averaged 10 tackles a game and tallied 113 for the season.
