Thanks for the recruiting posts! Let's hope these kids can play. Yes I agree defensive line needs to be a priority. I also think we need to switch to a 4-3 defense, because we just don't get the talent for a 3-4. If you're going to play the 3-4 then you need three huge and fast DL where a 4-3 is probably better with more average size DL players.

Will Swope anchored State College’s offensive line this season.

He said he learned from playing alongside Doug Swoboda and Mark Weakland last season as they pushed him to get better at practice and in the weight room.

He adopted that leadership role this year.

“I kept up that mentality, helped guys if they were having a bad day or something, helped them get through things,” Swope said. “If they were slacking a bit in the weight room, maybe helped push ‘em more to help them get better and get them ready for next year.”

On Tuesday, Swope earned a spot on the Pennsylvania Football Writers All-State Class 6A Team along with Little Lions teammates Pete Haffner and Noah Woods.

Next year, Swope will be playing at Cornell. He finished his State College career as an all-state lineman.

“Thinking back in ninth grade, I never had the idea that this could happen,” Swope said. “I’m just so happy that something like this could happen.”

Big kid at 6'6" and 275. Hopefully he can bulk up to a "Harvard" sized offensive lineman. Here is his Hudl report.

The switch to a 4-3 defense is an intriguing idea. This seems like it would better adapt to our personnel. After what happened vs Princeton and Penn it will be interesting to see what changes are implemented this Spring.

The Big Red should have a winning record next year.

I highly doubt Cornell would actually switch back to a 4-3 as defensive coaches have their philosophy about their scheme and are usually not willing to change. For many teams the 3-4 is a very good scheme when you have big athletic defensive linemen. However, that has not been the case at Cornell over the years and I think looking at a scheme that works for the talent we have is the best approach.
