Redhawks recruit six offensive linemen

Southeast head football coach Tony Samuel spoke about the 2011 recruiting class Wednesday afternoon. The Redhawks will welcome 26 student athletes for the upcoming year. This class includes many local and regional players from both High Schools and Junior Colleges.

Coach Samuel spoke about how last year's success translated into such a strong group.

"A big part of that really was the success that we had as a team. That helped us in the local area, and increased our popularity around the country," Samuel said.

Four starting offensive lineman were graduated from last year's team. The need for linemen was addressed by signing 6 players, a much larger number than years past.

Last Tuesday, Samuel signed a 5-year extension worth a base salary of $125,000 per year.
