This spring, it’ll be difficult for underclassmen to see significant playing time on the Big Red defense, a unit that lost graduated five-star cover man Quintan Kilrain (Hopkins) but brought back everybody else. Even so, Stamnes is a name worth keeping an eye on. A member of the varsity roster at Darien (Conn.) as a freshman, the lefty is physically and athletically gifted to the point that he looks more like a senior than a sophomore. Stamnes has an awesome motor and hunts down opposing ball-carriers, throwing the type of flashy takeaway checks that usually end up on Instagram and highlight reels. He’s got excellent hands and is a threat to score from his spot at LSM, but also has good enough feet to excel covering down low when called upon, pushing dodgers off their line and making life difficult.
