Steve Elmer
Offensive Tackle
6’6″ • 305
Midland High School
Midland, Mich.

Steve Elmer is a dominant force on the field. In high school he played both defensive line and left tackle and made a difference on both sides of the ball.
The collective force of his 6-foot-6-inch, 300-pound body is nearly impossible to overcome on the high school level and profiles well at the major collegiate level. His size and strength allow him to make holes for his quarterback and running backs by sheer force.
He doesn’t just stop the other team from getting to the quarterback, he tends to push them back several feet or more. Elmer projects as a stout offensive tackle for the Irish and has a high ceiling.
