The Mundane

Everything but the linebackers

The Tragic

Tanner Vallejo and Joe Martarano have both been entirely dropped from the depth chart. This is due to the heart-wrenching reality that both of them are sidelined for the year with injuries. Tanner had surgery to correct an issue with the ligaments in his wrist that he’d played with since the Washington State game. Apparently it was so bad that it had made even daily tasks like fastening a seatbelt a risk for the ligaments to pop out of place. Martarano left the field vs UNLV and has a fractured fibula.

Tanner talked about it a bit today in an interview you can see here:

The Most Interesting

The linebackers. As mentioned above, there are some notable vacancies at the position. One of these has been addressed by elevating Blake Whitlock into the starting position at strongside linebacker. We had an interview today with him, which you can see here:

Whitlock will be backed up by former safety and 4 star high school teammate of DSG, Kam Miles.

As for the middle linebacker position, Darren Lee will take over as the starter (you can also see last week’s interview with him here), and he will be backed up by true freshman, Tyson Maeva.

The linebacking corp will now have some depth challenges, but will still have some veteran leadership in the form of Weaver and Lee, in addition to getting some experience for future players at the position.
