Lynden Christian seniors Jordan Riddle and George De Jong and coach Dan Kaemingk discuss what's got the Lyncs so excited for the 2017 football season following practice Wednesday, Aug. 23.

Here are five players who could impact the 2017 football season for Lynden Christian:

George De Jong

George De Jong

Senior OL/DL: At 6-foot-6, he’ll always be one of the tallest players on the field, but he’s also got some muscle on that frame. He was selected first-team All-1A NWC along both lines as a junior and should be a big part of what LC does this year.

Senior RB/DB: Riddle earned first-team All-1A NWC honors last year after leading the team with 712 yards and eight touchdowns rushing. Will also play a large role on what figures to be a strong LC defense as a hybrid defensive back-linebacker.

Senior WR/DB: Led the Lyncs with 409 yards receiving on just 18 catches (22.7 average) and scored three touchdowns as a junior. He, Hunter Te Velde and Michael Lancaster will be the team’s top receivers and defensive backs.

Senior OL/DL: Had a great offseason in the weight room, coach Dan Kaemingk said, as he bulked up to 6-foot-5, 260 pounds. He will be a physical presence and a difference maker along the offensive and defensive fronts for the Lyncs this year.

Senior QB/DB: Backed up Colby Flint last year, attempting 26 passes, and Kaemingk said he’s had a good camp this year. May be pushed for some playing time behind center by junior Payton Robertson, who Kaemingk said, “can flat out throw the ball.”
