HAMLIN — To some degree, dunking a basketball is a measure of athletic prowess. But when you’re 6-foot-1 and weigh 299 pounds, having the ability to “jam” borders on unbelievable.
Hamlin defensive lineman Austin “The Beast” Lozano realized this, so he had himself videotaped throwing it down. The display encapsulates the amount of explosive power the senior brings to the table — power that the Hamlin coaching staff plans to take full advantage of this season.
Just where the 17-year-old will line up and how often, is still in the planning stages as the Hamlin staff tries to figure how to minimize the attention he’ll be getting from the opposition.
