"It's a lot more action [inside]," Caruso said. "You're seeing more double teams, but I like it. I like the control. I think I can get more tackles, get in on more plays."
Caruso really opened eyes in last year's Week 5 win over Plainfield North.
He made five tackles, had a sack and two tackles for loss, intercepted a fumble, recovered a fumble and had two pass breakups – one that led to an interception – as Oswego East forced seven turnovers in a 7-6 win.
He only build on that success at strong side.
A former running back, Caruso seems to use that experience to instinctively find creases toward the football.
