Lynn looks for progression from offensive line
KEARNEY - Breaking news: Football teams can't run the football without an offensive line being able to give a guy some space to move.
UNK was pretty abysmal at rushing the football last year at 106.5 yards per game, 140th in Division II.
If head coach Josh Lynn's track record says anything, expect the rushing attempts to nearly double from the Lopers 2016 tally to this year.
"It's better than what we had when we started, in the spring," Lynn says. "They all know their assignments, they're all getting off the ball. That position, we have to continue to get better, we're nowhere where we need to be."
But he needs the offensive line to progress in the scheme and there's only way to go about it.
"If you watch this practice (Monday), a ton of reps. Rep, rep, rep, and just individual work with our offensive line coach and getting those types of reps, too," Lynn surmised.
Senior Devin Hernandez out of Ord switching to the left tackle position and he's currently second on the depth chart based on the first two days of practice.
Hernandez played in 10 games last year, recording 18 tackles and had a quarterback hurry.
