He could potentially grow into a DLine prospect. He currently plays the MIKE and FB.

He is also a standout track athlete


It's not often that an athlete wins conference championships in the throws and sprints. Gilmour Academy's Eric Tupta did just that in last week's Metropolitan Area Conference-8 meet.

He won the shot put (48-0), the discus (132-10) and ran an 11.1 split on the winning 4x100 relay team, helping the Lancers win the team title.

Pretty impressive strength and speed numbers from track- maybe he could be a sleeper?
