The defensive line is a very strong component in the Knights defensive scheme. The Knights play a 4-4 with four down linemen that control the trenches with gap responsibilities. The defensive line consisted of Riley Matthew (DE/DT), Jackson Brown (DT), Kyle Naimaster (DE), Yoel Figuereo (DT), Eddie Ryander (DE/DT), and Jhari Rogers (DE). The heavy rotation for the defensive line is a key part with their physicality is their key to success.

Jackson Brown Junior Defensive tackle 6’2 285 pounds

Q:How do you feel about the defensive line as a unit?

A:I feel that the defensive line functions very well and when we all know our job and execute we are unstoppable.

Q:Do you think the defensive line is a big part of the Knights defense?

A:The defensive line is an important part of any defense but especially in ours because we have a 4 man line as opposed to a 5 it leaves no room for error.

Q: Fave defensive line teammate and why?

A:Thate’s hard because I love the whole downline so much but probably Jhari cause he has fun with, it but when he needs to get serious he does and when Coach looks for a big play from the downline, he most often steps up and makes the big play.

Yoel Figuereo Jr Senior Defensive tackle 5’11 245 pounds

Q:How do you feel about the downline coming together this season?

A:Many times I feel like our D-line controls the game. We have a lot of speed strength and depth and teams struggle with blocking whichever four linemen we put out there

Q:Does the downline play consistently Day in & out?

A:Our downline has issues at times with rushing the passer but I think for the most part we are consistent with rushing the quarterback and stopping the run

Kyle Naimaster Senior Defensive End 6’3 200 pounds

Q: How is the Defensive line?

A:Took us 7 games to finally get it right, but now that it finally is right we should be alright.

The New Milford Knights will be taking on the Waldwick Warriors this Friday @ New Milford High school kick off at 7!
