    Anytime an offense averages over 40 points a game like St. Thomas Morre, it's the skill players that get all the acclaim and shine. But with any great offense, there's a great offensive line leading the way.  In 2017, the Cougars may be leaning on trench play even more with a young group. So it's great STM has two sturdy seniors in Guard Grant Young and Tackle Jonathan Harding.
