Immokalee head coach Jerrod Ackley said his offense has dominated the line of scrimmage in the playoffs. The offensive line, he said, is the biggest reason the Indians' are in Friday's Class 5A state championship game against Tallahassee-Godby.

Offensive coordinator and line coach Tim Kepple is resigning from his post with the Indians after Friday due to declining health. Here is Kepple's take on his starting offensive linemen, a group he said he loves working with.

Right tackle: Kerby Henry, senior. "He may have the best one-hand block and the best reach block that I've ever coached," Kepple said.

Right guard: Ernest Salas, junior. "He does a great job coming off double teams and getting to the linebacker."

Center: Mikey Campbell, senior. "He's like having a coach on the field. He knows the whole offense. He knows what the receivers are supposed to do, he knows the quarterback's reads, he knows everything. He's invaluable."

Left guard: Bernadino Salas, junior. "He's our most versatile lineman. He can play anywhere on the line except center."

Left tackle: Deadrin Senat, senior. "He's a strong kid. When he pulls downfield he can wreak havoc on linebackers. He does a nice job in pass protections."

Substitute: Wesley Doscol, sophomore. "He's our sixth man. He's just a sophomore but he plays quite a bit."
