As we head towards a new football season in the fall of 2023, IdahoSports.com is once again getting fans ready by unveiling the Top 10 players at each position.  These lists feature players from all corners of the state, and from all six classification levels.  Each week, we'll publish a new list of Top 10 players.  Here's the schedule:

June 26 (Offensive Linemen)

July 3 (Defensive Linemen)

July 10 (Special Teams)

July 17 (Running Backs)

July 24 (Linebackers)

July 31 (Wide Receivers/Tight Ends)

August 7 (Defensive Backs)

August 14 (Quarterbacks)

Without further ado, here are the Top 10 Offensive Linemen to watch out for in 2023.  These selections have been made by the editorial staff at IdahoSports.com, and are listed in alphabetical order by school.  We made these selections based on a number of factors, including: returning All-State or All-Conference pedigree, college recruiting hype, and the good old-fashioned eye test.


Rakeem Johnson, Sr, Bishop Kelly

Johnson brings size (6-foot-3, 240 pounds) and experience to Bishop Kelly’s offensive line in 2023.  Johnson has started at right tackle for the Knights in previous years, and is listed among Idaho’s best offensive line prospects for his class.  Johnson took a visit to Oregon State during the offseason, and is also a standout post in basketball and thrower in track and field.

Nate Jordan, Sr, Council

The Lumberjacks have run roughshod over the rest of the Long Pin Conference for the past two seasons, and Jordan’s play up front has been a key reason why.  Jordan is a 6-foot-1, 250 pound anchor at the point of attack as Council’s starting center.  Jordan was named to the Class 1A All-State Team last season.

Brody Torgerson, Jr, Dietrich

Torgerson packs a serious wallop for the Dietrich Blue Devils.  A two-way starter last year as a sophomore, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder paved the way for explosive runners like Cody Power at his guard position.  And the fact that the Devils coaching staff played him at linebacker on defense shows that he’s not a plodding offensive lineman.

Kai Clegg, Sr, Grace

The Grace Grizzlies raised eyebrows a year ago with their run to the 1A championship game.  The performance of Clegg up front was a big reason why.  The 6-foot-3, 205 senior and All-State selection will once again be counted up front as the Grizzlies try to make another title game appearance.

Bruce Galo, Sr, Highland

Galo boasts excellent size, standing at 6-foot-2 and weighing in at 302 pounds.  Galo played left guard for the Rams a year ago, and projects as a guard in college, as well.  What stands out the most watching Galo on tape is his leverage.  He fires out of his stance at a good pad level, and maintains good position throughout the play.  In football, the low man wins, and Galo routinely wins his one-on-one battle up front.

Kooper Beck, Sr, Oakley

Oakley has been an eight-man powerhouse the past several seasons, winning their third consecutive championship this past fall.  And while the skill players in eight-man football get much of the attention, the best teams routinely have the best offensive linemen.  Beck started at center for Oakley last season, and the 6-foot senior will again serve as the focal point of Oakley’s offensive attack.

Feki Pouha, Jr, Rigby

It’s hard for juniors to make this list, but Pouha had an incredible sophomore season for last year’s 5A champs and has been blowing up on the summer circuit.  In fact, Pouha started a handful of games at center for Rigby in 2021 as a freshman, so fans in east Idaho have known about this talented lineman for a while.  Pouha stands 6-feet even and weighs 230 pounds, but don’t let his small stature fool you.  Pouha is quick off the snap and aggressive.  He could play either center or guard in college.

Atticus Fuhriman, Jr, Skyline

Furhiman is extremely similar to Pouha.  The 6-foot-2, 255-pounder has been a starter on Skyline’s O-line since his freshman season, holding down the fort at center for the three-time 4A state champs.  Fuhriman was a Second Team All-State selection this past season.  Expect him to be bumped up to the First Team this year.

Bryen Bosworth, Sr, Vallivue

Bosworth started at right guard a year ago for Vallivue, 4A’s top rushing team at 346 yards per game.  Bosworth is 5-foot-10 and 270 pounds, and although he hasn’t been able to showcase his pass blocking abilities much in Vallivue’s vaunted Wing-T attack, that chance could emerge this year with a new coaching staff in place.

Deegan Gonzalez, Jr, Wendell

A true Swiss Army Knife, Gonzalez is capable of playing center, guard and tackle, although the 6-foot, 245-pounder is at his best playing on the interior of the line.  Gonzalez has been a 1st Team All-Conference selection the past two seasons, and if Wendell is to snap their postseason drought in 2023, they’ll do so because of players like Gonzalez.
