LEROY \u2013 Pine River players enter the fifth week of the season hungry for their second victory and hopeful that it comes Friday night at home against Evart in the annual Armed Forces Services game. Tom Miller and Adam Langworthy are two key Pine River players that continue to play key roles for the Bucks. Miller, is a 6-2, 200-pound senior right offensive tackle and left defensive tackle for the Bucks. It\u2019s Miller\u2019s second varsity season. As a junior, he also started on offense. \u201cI felt that I had a pretty season this year compared to last year,\u201d he said. \u201cThis year has been a lot better. I\u2019ve grown more as a player and as a person.\u201d Miller worked during the spring and summer to get ready for this season. \u201cI think I\u2019m a lot more agile,\u201d he said. \u201c(Opponent\u2019s linemen) are usually the same size or a bit smaller than I am. I consider myself either the best or one of the best defensive linemen on the team.\u201d Miller indicated defense might be his best position. \u201cWhen we can move the ball, we can be a threat,\u201d Miller said. \u201cWe need to stay in the fight. \u201cWe\u2019ve played some pretty tough teams so far.\u201d Langworthy is a 5-10, 174 junior right guard and defensive end or inside linebacker. Langworthy started as an inside linebacker for Pine River as a sophomore. \u201cAs sophomore, I had a few things I had to pick up on like following the guards, all that,\u201d he said. \u201cI only got to play three games because I got hurt, left knee injury.\u201d Langworthy went to rehab for six months and later put on a knee brace. On the offensive line \u201cI get to my blocks, I sustain my blocks. If it\u2019s pass blocking, I read my blocks,\u201d he said. Defensively, he\u2019s been both on the line in the linebacker\u2019s spot. His open field tackling has been a strength. \u201cOffensive line, I know we can do a lot better,\u201d he said. \u201cWe need to sustain our blocks.\u201d Looking ahead, \u201cif we play to our potential...we\u2019re going to start stepping it up,\u201d Langworthy said.
