LEETONIA OH- One of the staples of Leetonia’s team this season is their defense. They have been able to control the line of scrimmage at will against their opponents. Size certainly helps, and one of their biggest defenders is senior defensive end Mason Mellinger. 

Mason has plenty of size to clog up any holes offensive lines try to create. But don’t think that his size means he can’t come off the edge with athleticism. He’s an asset to one of the best defensive lines Leetonia’s had in their program’s history.

Mason also brings a strong personality to the team. First on the field, and the last to leave the Senior makes sure the young kids on the team understand the standard of Leetonia football. They look to him as an example.

Mason sat down with YSN’s own Derrick Grossen to discuss his senior campaign. They talk about the defensive mindset, his goals this season, and much more. Don’t sleep on the Bears front line and hear from one of the leaders in “Facing Mason”
