When building a defense, the guys up front are the foundation of stopping an offense.  The 2013 Tiger Football team had a lot of talent at that spot a season ago and will be a challenge for those still on the roster to fill that production.  With that being said, there are more than a few members of this year’s team ready to fill those shoes.  Let’s take a look at the 2014 Tiger Football Defensive Line.


Ethan Adams 6-3, 220 Jr.
Tucker Donlon 6-1, 260 Jr.

Christian Fell 6-2, 270 Sr.

Tucker Donlon and Ethan Adams will be forces to be reckoned with on the Tigers’ defensive line this season.  Depth will be the thing to look at heading into the season because with good teams on the schedule, there are formidable offensive lines that these guys will go up against on a week-by-week basis.  Their toughness will be a strength of this group and will be fun to watch.  Carson Kehres has phenomenal tweets, but will also be a big contributor to the run defense this season.
