’25 OL appears headed for guard and for stardom
Ethan Blevins is a very unassuming young man. He is 5’9,” and weighs 237-pounds and he got a ton of run upfront for a Charger offensive which was among the more balanced attacks in all of the commonwealth. What will he do in ’23? Well, he’s doing it in the weight room right now to insure he is ready when the opportunity for stardom presents. Good for him!HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
Ethan Blevins is a very unassuming looking young gentleman. He is 5’9,” weighs 237-pounds, and very much a work still in progress in the frame, power, strength, and explosion departments.
Blevins plays with excellent leverage. We suppose that is how he got on the field in all 15 for the Chargers’ games in ’22.
Blevins plays a position hard to evaluate. There aren’t a bunch of statistics we can lean on either for OL.
We can tell you Blevins contributed to a front which supported a consensus Mr. Football in Travis Eagan. We can tell you Blevins blocked for a QB who threw for 3,093-yards on the year (15-games) with 38-TD’s against only 5-picks.
We can tell you the Chargers, with Blevins upfront with some frequency, rushed 433-times for 2,932-yards with 38-rushing TD’s. We can tell you that, on average, Coach Kendrick’s Chargers gained 195.5-yards per game rushing (over 15-games) and averaged 206.2-yards passing.
We can tell you the Chargers did all of this while playing at Kentucky’s highest level of competition on a team which is the present defending Kentucky champion. But what does this actually say about Blevins? Quite a bit we believe.
The goal, for players believing themselves capable of playing on the college level, is to find the field over the course of the sophomore season. This is made harder by playing for a 6A team so good it finished 14-1 and Kentucky Champions at that level of play.
The Chargers will enter ’23 riding a 14-game win-streak. It will be the longest current win streak in the 6A classification.
Now, Blevins hasn’t rested on his laurels. He hasn’t taken the offseason lightly.
Blevins is in the weight room. He is getting stronger all the time.
Blevins will get taller. Blevins will get thicker. Age and Nature will take care of that; well, Age, Nature, and the weight room…
