HISTORICAL COMPARISON: Arman Yaralian & Bryan Weimer

Arman Yaralian
Bryan Weimer

Yaralian returns as the main man on the Mariner offensive line. The Sehome backs will look to run behind his 5-foot-11 225-pound frame.

Weimer was one of the best offensive linemen the Mariners had in the 90’s. He was an All-State selection in the 4A division in 1999, and paved the way for one of the best offenses in school history.

After struggling through the back-end of the 2000’s Sehome began to show glimpses of greatness in the early 2010’s with players like Titi Lamositele, Daniel Ziegler, Drew Norvell, and Taylor Rapp. With a new cast of athletes, this year’s crop of Mariners are looking to turn into contenders again.

“We’ve been competitive,” Coach Bob Norvell said. “We just haven’t been very disciplined. We’re working on the basics, the fundamentals, and hopefully we can get to where we want to be.”

Nic Roger
Nic Roger

After a year when seven different players attempted a pass, the Mariners are looking for some consistency out of the quarterback position. As of now, senior Nic Roger seems to have the edge over Michael Mindnich. Roger got a little playing time behind center last year, and that little bit of experience could give him the edge over the athletic sophomore.

Marcus Montag
Marcus Montag

The top five rushers from last year have graduated, and that opens the door for senior Anton Arena. His skills as a running back has been a pleasant surprise during camp, and he will most likely be the main ball-carrier. Sehome will again run the spread offense, but this year it will be from the guidance of former Lynden Christian superstar, Greg Terpstra. He will have a solid group of receivers of which to work, starting with senior Marcus Montag. Joining Montag on the outside will be 6-foot-2 junior Ben Dauber and the 200-pound junior Ryan McDonnell, who has great hands. When the Mariners look to use a tight end they will rely on 6-foot-3 senior Sean Graham.

Scott Kruzich
Scott Kruzich

Arman Yaralian will be the player up front that will set the tone for the rest of the offensive line. He is slated to start at left guard next to senior center Scott Kruzich. 250-pound junior Brady Norvell is a very knowledgeable right guard, and he will be flanked by 230-pound senior Anthony Natola at right tackle. Senior Connor McGovern is at left tackle, but is being pushed by the 6-foot-3 220-pound sophomore Bryce Andrews.

Anton Arena
Anton Arena

Without as many lineman as years past, Sehome will go with a lot of two-way players up front. However, they will find a way to get junior Kosmx Rankin into the mix on the defensive line. McGovern and McDonnell will provide the “Mac Attack” at inside linebacker with Graham and Arena playing outside linebacker.

Ben Dauber
Ben Dauber

Sophomore Lukas Delisle has shown great athleticism and will start at cornerback. Dauber will be at the other corner with Montag at safety. Coach Norvell believes that Montag has learned a lot from playing with two-time All State safety Taylor Rapp the past two seasons, and this will be his year to shine.

Mindnich will start out as the kicker, but is being pushed by a few freshman that can really boot the ball. Montag, Dauber and Delisle will handle the kick returning.

The Mariners have a lot of new faces, and will most likely have an uphill battle in the strong Northwest Conference. I think they will be better than last year, but getting into the playoffs looks like a stretch.

Prediction: 3-6
