Players to Watch in 2009: Oliver Venegas

Name: Oliver Venegas
School: Olathe North
Year: Senior
Position(s): Offensive Line
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 260 lbs.
Notes: Venegas (bottom right) is arguably the Sunflower League's top returning hog-molly for the 2009 campaign. As a junior, Venegas was the anchor of an Olathe North offensive line that helped the Eagles rush for 3,107 yards, and total 3,927 yards of offense on the season. For his efforts he was named First Team All-Sunflower League in addition to being the only junior offensive lineman on the KC Star's All-Metro team.
Venegas, along with fellow senior Zach Maggard, will be anchoring what could be the league's top offensive line unit in 2009. Combine that unit with the Eagle's running back James Franklin, and it should make for a pretty explosive run game for Olathe North in 2009.
