Link Rolle shows why he's one of the best By Jason A. Dixon (Contact) Tuesday, September 26, 2006 IMMOKALEE ? The question is dead now to Immokalee football coach John Weber. How good is senior Brian Rolle? The sight of Rolle rushing for 161 yards and three touchdowns, forcing two fumbles and making 11 tackles in the Indians' 54-14 win over Barron Collier last Thursday left no doubt in Weber's mind. "If there's five better players in this state I don't want to play against them, because he plays with such high intensity and he's so motivated about the game," he said. In a season that has seen Immokalee sweep through its first five opponents with relative ease, Rolle, a 5-foot-11, 216-pound running back/linebacker, was silently motivated early on by what he perceived as a bit of a slight. "I label myself as one of the premier guys, overall in the area," he said. "The first couple of weeks I didn't get Prep of the Week, I was kind of like 'Maybe it's somebody else's time to shine.'" Plenty of players have shown their abilities this season, but few have made the type of impact on both sides of ball that Rolle has for the Indians. He leads the team with 61 tackles and is second behind Carl Elie with 537 rushing yards. Rolle Since helping lead Immokalee to a Class 2A state championship as a sophomore in 2004, Rolle has been putting up those kind of numbers and he came into the season hoping to eclipse 100 tackles and 1,000 yards rushing. Weber said the fact that top Division I football programs like Florida, Ohio State and Nebraska are willing to recruit Rolle as an outside linebacker, despite the size, speaks to the type of player he is.
