After Oliaro, his main target will be seniorMike Jamin, a second-team All-Ivy selection lastyear. Jamin, who caught 35 passes for 486 yardslast year, will be supplemented by tight end JohnMassy, a tri-captain who caught eight passes for84 yards last year.
Defensively, only four starters return: oneeach on the line and linebacking corps, and two inthe secondary.
The star of the defense is burly juniorlinebacker Chris Zingo, a second-team All-Ivyselection. Zingo set a school record last year fortackles with 160 (112 unassisted), with a high of27 in one game against Brown.
Zingo also led the team in sacks, with six.
Senior Jeff Woodring, also a second-teamAll-Ivy selection (Cornell has a lot of these forsome reason), will try to anchor the defensiveline from his position at left end. He had threeforced fumbles and five sacks last year.
Woodring is joined by seniors Ed Growzewski,Jack Dankert, Hans Maentz and Mark Mako, with ahost of underclassmen pushing for positions. Butexperience is at a premium, according to Big RedCoach Jim Hofher.
Both Big Red cornerbacks, seniors Will Applingand Ethan Levitas, return with playing time ontheir resume's, but strong safety junior RyanBlattenberger is the main man in the secondary.Blattenberger is the team's second-leadingreturning tackler, with 44.
Hofher has wins to his credit, but hisonce-dominant defense is in decline. The offenseis getting better, though, and should be rankedhigher than last-year's sixth. If everything goesright, the Big Red could finish third.
