|Charlie Poppen (#6) looks to rise above the competition this fall.|
Last night after the 'Cats wrapped up their final activity of the day I reached out the Linfield receiver Charlie Poppen. "Pop" was a 1st-team All-NWC receiver last season as a Sophomore. Charlie pulled own 57 receptions for 909 yards (15.9 yard per catch), 9 TD receptions, and 75.8 yard per game. In my opinion, I feel that Charlie is one of the premiere receivers in the Western Region and should be a key offensive component for Linfield this season.
Charlie and I had a great conversation about building chemistry with the quarterbacks on the roster, having the program's head coach also be your position coach, he thoughts on the Linfield receiver corp this season, bucking some hay this summer, and who he thinks is the best golfer on the team (Pop is an avid golfer).
