Engram, a 6-foot-3, 230 pound junior, has developed into an every-down force. His specialty, though, is hunting down quarterbacks. He has 58 tackles and 12 sacks in seven games. Last week against Countryside, he applied constant pressure to L.D. Crow, registering two sacks and causing two errant throws that resulted in interceptions by teammate Marquise Gamble. "He is a difference maker," Spongers coach George Kotis said of Engram.
