The size of Army’s offensive or defensive lines is always popular topic.
The weights of Army players are slightly off on its roster.
Finally got an updated average weight of Army’s starting defensive line against Stanford with some help from nose tackle Richard Glover.
Glover, a junior who is listed at 247 pounds, said he weighs between 260-265. He said junior defensive end Mike Ugenyi, listed at 257 pounds, is between 245-50 pounds.
Junior defensive end Bobby Kough, listed at 239 pounds, told me after the Stanford game he is between 255-260.
Some quick math. Army’s defensive line averages 256 pounds.
Stanford’s offensive line averaged 305 pounds last week and had at least two players – guard David Yankey and center Khalil Wilkes, who will be playing on Sundays in the NFL.
Wake Forest, this week’s opponent, has an offensive line, which averages 307 pounds per man.
“I feel like the undersized thing can kind of get old and worn out,” Glover said. “We play football just like they play football. We bleed just like they bleed. We put our pants on just they put their pants on. Yeah, they are 6-7, 330 pounds but it’s a game of leverage, angles, speed, athleticism, all those things wrapped up into one. Size is only one factor in that game.”
