Football: El Toro's offensive line gets royal treatment

October 4, 2012 |  8:47 am


There's no better way to recognize an offensive line than to give them the best present possible, and that's to feed them until they're full.

The Holman family decided to treat the El Toro offensive line to dinner on Wednesday night at Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ in Lake Forest. If only I had the time to see them devour all the ribs and food.... They ordered the Super Feast Meal that feeds 10. Six players and two coaches finished it off, with the only item left standing some salad.

El Toro is 6-0 going into its South Coast League opener on Thursday against San Clemente. Quarterback Conner Manning has passed for 2,572 yards and 27 touchdowns with one interception. And the line has been very important.

The linemen are Kyle Holman (6-foot-1, 245 pounds), Devon Bedoya (6-0, 235), Joey Razo (6-1, 260), Grey Blanchard (6-2, 215), Zach Lopez (6-0, 260) and Ian Karundeng (6-0, 240).
