To be an offensive lineman at Fort Osage is to be part of a brotherhood, according to senior lineman Rueban Sia.

Friday night against visiting Raytown, that brotherhood united to push around Raytown’s defensive line.

With Sia, Tyler Daoust, Justin Doss, Lucas Stevenson and Dillon Taff controlling the line of scrimmage, the Indians tallied 477 yards of total offense and ripped off a 57-10 homecoming and Suburban Middle Seven-opening victory.

“We stayed on our blocks – and we gave time for our (other) brothers to throw and run,” Sia said.

Junior quarterback Steven McBee said the line created huge holes for running back Ezra Vaoifi, who carried 24 times for 180 yards and a touchdown. McBee, who completed 11 of 15 passes for 153 yards and three touchdowns and threw one interception, also praised the line’s pass protection.

“They were blitzing non-stop. This is a good blitzing team – good at sacking – and these guys held them up way long enough for me to throw,” McBee said of his linemen, who stood near him on the field when he did his postgame interview. “That’s the only reason I was able to get those throws off.”
