    Absolutely. He gets so much attention on the other side of the ball that most probably overlook him as an elite linebacker. His physical attributes are so plentiful that he slid right into that MLB spot last year and looked like a natural fit.

    Joe Kuerzi led Male’s top notch defense last year with 117 tackles. He will be Senior this year.

    Between those two and Oxendine, North Hardin's not hurting for talent in the front seven.

    These five may not necessarily make any all-state lists in 2019, but are solid returning linebackers in Northern Kentucky:

    Senior Blake Shepherd from Beechwood. Beechwood is one of a disappointing abundance of NKY schools that don't report defensive stats, but he's a solid linebacker for the Tigers.

    Junior Gavin Knight from Walton-Verona had a solid season last year for the Bearcats. He was the #6 tackler for the team as a sophomore linebacker, and had multiple forced turnovers.

    Senior Nigel Robinson at Scott led the team with 103 tackles and 7 sacks last season.

    Senior Ethan Bosway from Cooper led the team with 90 tackles and 1 sack.

    Senior Luke Bradshaw from Ryle had 69 tackles.

    He's a solid backer especially in between the hash marks.

    I also like Darrian Bell at Danville.

    Give me Roller at an ILB and Bell at a MLB and I just made your run game have a whole lot of problems!
