Maybe Ethan was "in" on 14 tackles but not a solo that stood out. I may be wrong, he may grow into the position. However, Ginda as far as I've observed isn't the tackling machine that he is given credit for. I've seen far to many times where he has been juked and caught flat-footed.
I'm not trying to be negative, just giving my honest opinion. I would even try Francoise, and Williams at LB. They have size and speed and Francoise was a hitter in HS. Frank Ginda just doesn't get into the hole fast enough he reads too much.
Anyway, I think my original point was that the D is better than in years past, and will get better. The D will keep SAJU competitive in the MW.
