Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Linebacker – Cal Bears

By Sam Saig, August 13, 2009 9:38 am

Eight starters return to a talented Cal defense that was exceptional in almost every statistical category during 2008, including total defense (26th in nation), rushing defense (25th in nation), pass efficiency defense (6th in nation), scoring defense (23rd in nation), and turnovers gained (4th in nation) just to name a few.

Defensive Coordinator Bob Gregory successfully installed his 3-4 scheme last season, as the Bears managed to hold offensive juggernaut Oregon to just 16 points (and USC to 17 albeit in a loss).

But while the defensive line and secondary are loaded with all-conference performers this season, the linebacking corps must replace three starters that were pivotal to this program’s success over the last four years.

The insanely productive trio of Zack Follett, Worrell Williams, and Anthony Felder will be a hard act to follow, but that doesn’t mean the linebacking cupboard is empty in Berkeley. Gregory may not have as much dynamite to work with this season, but the new group is more than capable of holding it’s own in 2009.

The only remaining starter from last year’s explosive LB unit will lead the unit this season.
