Lakers' football gets a boost with return of injured linemen

It's been a roller-coaster season for a trio of Spring Lake linemen, and the Lakers haven't even played a game yet. Coach Jerry Rabideau was looking forward to having the services of seniors Tyler Goeglein, Andrew Hissom and Zach Boeve, but all three suffered various injuries during the offseason or early in fall camp that would keep them out a minimum half of the season.

But with the first game of the season tonight, Rabideau was thrilled to announce that all three will be in the starting lineup when the Lakers and the Whitehall Vikings kick off at Grabinski Field.

“We got all of them back, thank goodness,” said Rabideau.

Goeglein hurt his knee during a passing camp this summer, then injured it again during basketball camp. He has a new brace that is “doing wonders for him,” according to Rabideau, and will be starting on both offense and defense tonight.

“He’s a little bit injured, but he’s back and playing on it,” Rabideau said. “We didn’t get him back until Monday, and he’ll help us out tremendously.”
