The Lincoln Locker Room football camp series came to an end Friday with the High School Jamboree at Lincoln Pius X.
Teams participating were Lincoln Southeast, Lincoln Southwest, Lincoln High, Lincoln Pius X and Lincoln Northeast.
Here are some notes on each team:
» Lincoln Southeast: The Knights were clearly the biggest team, and their strength is up front on both lines. The defensive line clearly got better with the addition of 6-foot-3, 288-pound 2020 tackle Teivis Tuioti, the son of new Nebraska defensive line coach Tony Tuioti. Gage Johnson flashed Friday as a defensive end and looks much bigger than his listed measurements of 6-foot-4, 210 pounds. There is a lot to like about 2020 interior O-lineman Xavier Trevino, who at 6-foot-2, 290 pounds has a nasty streak. He plays to the whistle and even a little past it at times. Two Lincoln Northeast transfers should have a big impact in the fall — 2020 quarterback Shadon Shannon, who is in the mix for the starting job, and 2020 running back Nick Halleen. If Shannon isn’t the quarterback, he will provide another athlete at receiver to go with 2020 wideout Isaac Appleget.
» Lincoln Pius X: The Thunderbolts will have a new look at quarterback after the graduation of Austin Jablonski. 2021 quarterback Lou Sawtelle doesn’t have Jablonski’s size but he did show some athleticism and a good touch on the ball. He will be in the mix to win the job in the fall. Kyle Dolan will switch from fullback to offensive guard. Dolan has a solid frame and is strong. On defense he will play outside linebacker. 2021 inside linebacker Tyler Lonergan is a tough tackler who diagnosed plays well. He also will be a running back for the Thunderbolts.
» Lincoln Southwest: The best-looking athlete on the field for the Silver Hawks was 6-foot-3, 187-pound 2020 receiver Grant McKinsey, who recently received a scholarship offer from FCS Southeast Missouri State. 2020 offensive lineman Drake Sherman (6-1, 265) is the team’s best lineman. Sherman started at center as a sophomore and played guard as a junior.
» Lincoln Northeast: The breakout performer of the day was 2020 wide receiver/defensive back Kobe Schejbal. Listed at 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Schejbal caught a deep touchdown across the middle and also beat his defender in one-on-one situations multiple times. He also wasn’t afraid to help in the run game on defense. Schejbal and 2020 receiver Jesston Howard are nice pieces for whoever will be the Rockets’ quarterback in the fall. Dylan Gray (2022) and Jeremiah Collier (2020) split reps at the position and will be battling for the starting spot.
» Lincoln High: There’s been a lot of changes to the Links’ roster and they’ll be going young this season. 2021 quarterback Hunt Boutin will lead that charge. Boutin has a nice arm and accuracy on deep balls. He showed some athleticism and good decision making in scramble and roll-out situations. 2021 defensive back DaRon Givens brings some toughness and was a vocal leader for the defense.
