2024 Idaho High School Football Preview: Top 10 Offensive Linemen
We kick off our annual Top 10 series by looking at Idaho's best offensive linemen
Published: 7/3/2024 10:05:32 AM
 

 

As we head towards a new football season in the fall of 2024, 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:

July 3 (Offensive Linemen)

July 9 (Defensive Linemen)

July 16 (Special Teams)

July 23 (Running Backs)

July 30 (Linebackers)

August 6 (Wide Receivers/Tight Ends)

August 13 (Defensive Backs)

August 20 (Quarterbacks)

Without further ado, here are the Top 10 Offensive Linemen to watch out for in 2024.  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.

 

Brody Torgerson, 12, Dietrich

Torgerson has been a two-way starter at guard and linebacker since his sophomore season, and he’s only gotten stronger with each passing year.  Torgerson made our Top 10 list last season, and at 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds overall.  He’s agile enough to roam sideline-to-sideline on defense at linebacker, and even played tight end at times last season, ripping off several long touchdown receptions.  At the end of the day, though, Torgerson doesn’t mind sliding inside and doing the dirty work up front.

 

Sione Perkins, 12, Eagle

There’s an old saying that goes, “You can’t coach size.”  And boy, does Perkins bring the size.  His 6-foot-9, 260 pound frame has college coaches drooling over his potential, with Eastern Washington, Idaho and Montana already officially offering Perkins a scholarship.  Perkins started at right tackle for Eagle a season ago, and his return is a big one for the Mustangs.

 

Sam Buck, 12, Emmett

Buck started at guard last season for Emmett’s ground-and-pound offense, and finished with 62 pancakes in the run game.  The 6-foot-3 senior also won the Class 4A state wrestling championship at 285 pounds this past winter, which further showcases his quick burst and excellent footwork.

 

Carson Hogan, 12, Kendrick

Kendrick has been nothing short of dominant the past few seasons, carrying a 25-game winning streak into 2024.  The secret to Kendrick’s success?  Strong play up front on both lines.  Hogan is just the latest performer to blossom, as the 5-foot-10, 215-pounder earned All-Conference and All-State honors in 2023.  Hogan brings quickness and athleticism to his guard position, and as Kendrick jumps up a level this year to the new 2A classification (previously 1AD1), he’ll be relied upon to keep Kendrick’s success going.

 

Dallyn Grimes, 12, Middleton

Grimes is a 6-foot-5, 240-pound mountain at tackle for the Vikings.  After a standout junior season, Grimes picked up offers from Eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana and Portland State of the Big Sky Conference, but officially committed to hometown Boise State at the start of July.  Despite having an enrollment that dictated a move down to the new Class 5A level (previously 4A), Middleton chose to play up a level in football (as part of the new Class 6A).  That means Grimes will face the best of the best, week in, week out, which will only help his stock continue to rise.

 

Dallin Hardy, 12, Oakley

Hardy started at guard for Oakley in 2023, and used his 6-foot-3 frame to his advantage.  His long arms helped keep the pocket clean for Oakley quarterback Kyler Robinson, and his footwork is also exceptional.  Hardy starts at center during basketball season, and showcased a deft touch around the basket, which only helps his football development.

 

Feki Pouha, 12, Rigby

The 6-foot-1, 285 pound senior will be a four-year starter at center, a rarity at Idaho’s largest classification level.  If that wasn’t enough, Pouha has also lent his talents to the defensive line, as well, holding down the point of attack at nose tackle.  Pouha has an offer in from the College of Idaho, which seems like a perfect fit.  Other offers are sure to follow, though.

 

Jax Tanner, 11, Rocky Mountain          

Like Pouha, Jax Tanner has been a starter at tackle since his freshman year at Rocky Mountain.  Tanner stands 6-foot-4 and 280 pounds, and moves well within his frame.  Tanner can pull with the best of them, and is also great at getting to the second level, finishing his sophomore year with 79 pancakes.  Only a junior, Tanner is the gold standard among linemen in his class right now.

 

Atticus Fuhriman, 12, Skyline

Like Pouha and Tanner, Fuhriman is another standout that has started since his freshman year.  The 6-foot-1, 290 pound senior has started at center the past three years for Skyline.  Fuhriman also has potential as a long snapper at the next level, as he has been working with the acclaimed Rubio Long Snapping training program.

 

Deegan Gonzalez, 12, Wendell

A repeat selection on our Top 10 list, the 6-foot, 245 pound senior has started at center, guard and tackle throughout his Trojans career.  Gonzalez is also a standout wrestler, and could pursue that path in college, as well.  Wendell is a team that has slowly been turning the corner the past couple of years.  That it’s paralleled Gonzalez’ career is no coincidence.
