Sac-Joaquin Top 5: Defensive Line

We are happy to say that for the seventh straight year the web site and Cal-Hi Sports is part of the weekly Final Quarter high school football show on Friday nights on the FOX 40 station in Sacramento.

On last week’s eighth show for the 2019 season, we revealed our list of the top five defensive linemen in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section for this season. Here is what that countdown revealed:

1. DeShawn Lynch (Folsom) 6-4, 280
He’s an all-area basketball player as well and is one of the top defensive line recruits in California with many D1 offers. Just before this list was revealed on the air, Lynch was shown returning a fumble for a touchdown during win vs. Whitney of Rocklin.

2. Omar Norman-Lott (Grant, Sacramento) 6-3, 295
It’s been tough for Grant this season getting wins, but Omar and teammate offensive lineman Isaiah Tupou have been great. Omar has committed to Arizona State.

3. Ilaisa Gonebure (Capital Christian) 6-4, 320
He’s just a junior, and already getting some offers. He also had eight tackles for loss in first few games.

4. Grady Manley (Lincoln) 6-4, 265
He led the Zebras and was among the section leaders in tackles last year playing linebacker but this season he has switched to D-Line. Seems to be paying off.

5. Micah Yokum (Placer, Auburn) 6-3, 230
He’s gotten bigger, stronger and faster since last season and recently had 10 tackles and two sacks against Nevada Union.

This 30-minute show is twice as long as any other Friday night high school football show in the Sacramento market and is returning to the Friday at 11 p.m. time slot.

Watch this week’s show Friday at 11 p.m. for all the local highlights, plus the next Top 5 from, which will be a look at the top five defensive backs in the section. The show will include highlights from all of the biggest games in the region, including the Fan Favorite Game of the Week. Thanks to host Jim Crandell and the FOX 40 team for once again letting Cal-Hi Sports be part of this year’s show.
