Here is The Bee's Dirty Dozen motley crew of area high school football linemen to line up behind but to steer away from your fridge:
Dedric Allen, Inderkum, 6-2, 240, Sr.
Dominant as a junior with 10 sacks; also plays OL for wing-T masters that seek another D-II title push.
Tyler Bardy, Granite Bay, 6-4, 320, Sr.
Can move mountains, or close, as he's set school bench-press records at 500-plus pounds.
Zach Claiborne DE Oak Ridge 6-0 205 Sr.
Isn't enormous but is quick off the snap; had 11.5 sacks in 2011 and can also play RB/FB.
Daren Echeveria, Antelope Sr.
Reigning Capital Athletic League Lineman of the Year has good feet and is very physical.
Nifae Nifae Lealao, Capital Christian, 6-4, 270, Jr.
Never mind the small-school status - big Nifae can play. Lot of offers, including Stanford, which tells you what sort of scholar he is.
A.J. Samataua, Del Campo, 6-2, 300, Sr.
Sparkled in summer drills against top competition; keys Cougars' power run game and stops the run, too.
Sam Smith, Cosumnes Oaks 6-4 290 Sr.
Recruit prospect and weight-room buff mans the lines for a program seeking D-III section title.
Garrett Strohmaier, Jesuit, 6-3, 285, Sr.
Relentless worker and team leader; a scholar with a lot of Ivy League interest.
Misi Taifane, Grant 6-3, 300 Sr.
Goes by "Junior" but there's nothing small or understated about rising recruit; next great Grant lineman.
Nick Terry, Pleasant Grove 6-4 275 Sr.
Next lineman recruit for the Eagles keys veteran line units; physical, driven.
Tanner Woods, Del Oro, 6-2, 240, Jr.
Physical and durable; was a key on Golden Eagles' Sierra Foothill League title team.
Eddie Vanderdoes DL Placer 6-4, 303, Sr.
Goes by "Floor Safe" and is unblockable with speed and power; also plays some FB and TE for Hillmen.
