Offensive linemen have traditionally gone by the nickname, “big uglies,” but the Warren County High School offensive linemen decided to buck the trend this year.The Pioneer offensive linemen decided to embrace the acronym HOGS, standing for the hardcore offensive ground support. The “Hogs” have already been putting in work this offseason.The Pioneer offensive line won the Knights McDonald’s Linemen Challenge held at John Paul II High School Tuesday.Going against 11 other teams, the Pioneers took top honors while competing in 13 different challenges, including team bench press, agility drills, pulling a fire engine and a tug of war.Warren County took 12 members to the challenge, but were without senior starters Logan Wanamaker and Gilley Ortiz. Even without the two big men, the Pioneers were able to beat a field which included Smyrna, LaVergne, Monterey, Greenbrier, Franklin County, John Paul II, Ezell Harding, Jackson County and White County.The Pioneers took first place in many of the agility drills, including the five-person shuttle, obstacle course and broad jump.
