This young man looks like a true lead blocker in a two back set. He absolutely flattened some of the LBs in the video.

Fabulous dinner last night for the graduating seniors at The Tennis and Racquet Club on Park Avenue.

Watched both videos....what I like is that just about everybody he blocked he clearly moved backwards...some a yard and some onto their backs, but everyone he touched was rendered out of the play.

Kid likes contact and has a loowww center of gravity. I think he can really help create those few extra holes every game to make a difference in the outcome.

Great pick up!

He could a great lead back for Gerst.
Would love to see what they can do in the same backfield.

He is from Alabama football country. Zach Olinger showed he is a hard hitter. Looking forward to watching another product from the same school.

Here is Mike Gerts's highlight reel.

He looks great. Can we get him to join his brother at Columbia next year? That would be quite a tandem

Looks like notre dame, Michigan, Stanford and all the ivy's courting him already. Probably need help from his brother

Olinger looked like our best linebacker toward the end of the year, although he really needs to get bigger. I think that Gross actually put on too much weight for his senior year, and that it might have slowed him down. but if Olinger can get up to around 220 he should do better on playing off the TEs and pulling guards.
