The Girard Trojans are big upfront and the lightning-quick Connor Olivera sparked the offense in Girard's 20-12 victory in their 2020 season opener against Colgan.

Here is a scouting report on the Trojans who played large roles in the road win.

Offensive Stars of the Game

RB, Conner Olivera, 5’10”, 150 – Olivera is quick and shifty. He sparked the Girard offense with two touchdown receptions of 28 and 65 yards. He finished with three catches for 109 yards. He also had a big 27-yard run. The senior is looking for his first collegiate football offer.

RB, Ethan Merrell, 6’3”, 185 – Merrell is just a junior so keep an eye on this guy. He is a tough between the tackle runner and blocker. He carried the ball 14 times for 46 yards to help Girard move the chains and control the clock.

QB, Caden Lallemand, 5’8”, 200 – Lallemand was on the throwing end off Olivera’s touchdown catches. Lallemand does not have a prototypical quarterback frame, but he does have a good arm. He added a rushing touchdown to his score sheet. He might project as a college fullback depending on program needs.
