Wroblewski set to be key player for Baldwin football

BALDWIN — Baldwin football coach Doug Bolles is looking at junior Alex Wroblewski to play a key role in his lineup this season.

He 5-8, 162 pounds, and usually plays tight end or wide receiver but will be playing at left guard on the line.

“I’m willing to do whatever has to be done to help the team make us better,” Wroblewski said. “If that means moving to lineman, I’ll do the best I can at that position.”

Wroblewski hopes to use his quickness to help the line.

He’ll play cornerback on defense. Wroblewski figures working especially on pass defense but will also lend support against the run.

“I’m looking forward to helping the linebackers too,” he said. “I like being inside, where the action is.”

Wroblewski started as a sophomore a year ago.

“Last year was a very good season,” he said. “We made it to the playoffs (and won the league). I think I played pretty well. I had a lot of tackles. I think I’ll be better this year. I’ve gotten stronger and faster.

“I’m a big runner. I like to run around the lake I live on.”

Baldwin opens at Hale Thursday.

“We’re quick and we’re smart, that will be to our advantage this year,” Wroblewski said. “I think we did well in our scrimmage (last Thursday). We got tired when we came together and worked. We did really well.”
