How'd he get to the Blue™?
As Casey put it quite succinctly last year: By generally being a beast in all things O-line. He lettered 3 times in football, earning first-team All-Trinity League, All-CIF, first-team al-county and third-team all-state as a junior. He capped off a stellar high school career by being named Trinity League Offensive Lineman of the year, first team all-league, first-team All-CIF, first-team all-county and second-team all-state as a senior. Listed as a 3-star recruit by Rivals, Scout and 247Sports, he received offers from Arizona, Colorado, Iowa State, UCLA, Washington and Washington State, but ultimately committed to the good guys on July 5th, 2011.
Who knows. Maybe Averill used to skate?
Vin Diesel when Diesel doesn’t quite Bic his hair.
Being on the offensive line, quantifiable statistics are kind of hard to come by. So being a stalwart starter is going to have to do. Last year Mr. Averill started 11 games. Overall he’s started 28 games in his career as a Bronco at various spots on the line (most recently as right guard). In high school he was Trinity League Offensive Lineman of the year his senior year while also getting first-team all-league, first-team All-CIF, first-team all-county and second-team all-state honors.
In short: big fella is going to start. Barring any sort of injury bug that goes around (as it invariably does on the line) Averill should be making his mark as the left guard. And he should be quite entrenched there. While I have no doubt that the coaching staff will “the next man up” available, and ready, should the unspeakable happen, Mr. Averill’s experience will help keep Brett Rypien’s jersey clean (Averill knows the value of using a good fabric softener as well). Mr. Averill’s leadership will help guide the offensive line and hopefully lead to more success.
Is he on Twitter?
Yeah. Though he mostly does retweets.
But he knows Mike Trout?!
