White Top Option For Rogers High

Posted: August 25, 2014 at 1:30 a.m.


ROGERS -- Finding players who can handle the slot back position in the Rogers High triple option offense is not an easy chore.

The Skinny

Position Battle: Slot backs/Receivers

Watch Out For: Sage White. The junior saw extensive playing as a sophomore and rushed for over 300 yards. White was also the leading receiver last season.

Biggest Strength: Depth. … Despite a lack of any returning starters on offense, the Mounties are developing good depth behind slot back starters Sage White and Justice Thompson. Sophomore Grayson Lee is working at both quarterback and slot back. Depth and competition is also good at wide receiver.

Biggest Question Mark: Varsity Experience. … Besides White, the slot backs and receivers have little or no varsity experience. Thompson had just one carry last year but he has had a solid offseason. None of the players working at receiver had a reception last season.
