2018 Preview: The Offensive Line
STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- The 2018 Offensive Line is the latest Preseason Camp Previews. Throughout the 2018 preseason camp we will have video previews of each position, including today's OL feature. The offensive balance that the Stony Brook football team had in 2017 had a lot to do with the versatility and toughness among the unit. Head coach Chuck Priore has long history of sending a tough and cohesive offensive front onto the field each Saturday and 2018 promises to be more of the same. The Seawolves return three starters up front in Jonathan Haynes (Bowie, Md./Annapolis Christian), Joe Detorie (Fallston, Md./Fallston) and Mason Zimmerman (Whitehouse, Ohio/Wayne). Offensive line coach Chris Bache has coached multiple All-Americans and NFL players and he brings a very high standard to the group as a whole. Haynes has been an invaluable member of the offensive line dating back to 2016 when he started games at both tackle and guard. This past season Haynes replaced All-American Timon Parris at left tackle in week seven after Parris, a current member of the Washington Redskins, was lost for the season due to injury. Haynes preparation and performance allowed the Seawolves' offense to overcome the loss of Parris, en route to a 10 win season and quarterfinal appearance in the Division I FCS playoffs. Detorie returns after starting 10 games at center this past fall. His leadership and ability to communicate will be essential if the Seawolves will continue to have success offensively. Zimmerman brings experience and versatility to the table as a 19 game starter at both left and right guard. Sophomore Anthony Catapano (Franklin Square, N.Y./Carey) started three games at center in 2017 and provides great depth and versatility along the interior. The preseason camp will featured position battles as senior Chris Infantino (Valley Stream, N.Y./Valley Stream South), senior Jaelen Vazquez (Bronx, N.Y./Cardinal Hayes), sophomore Ian McLean (St. Augustine, Fla./Menendez), redshirt freshman Kyle Nunez (East Islip, N.Y./East Islip) and redshirt freshman Cameron Lucas (Lorton, Va./South County) will all be working to solidify the Seawolves' offensive front.
