The absence of Marlon Tuipulotu was noticeable, and his return was apparent.
Central’s 6-foot-2, 275 pound senior defensive lineman, who has verbally committed to play at Washington, had 10 tackles, including two for loss with one sack in Friday’s 32-6 loss Lebanon.
He missed Central’s two previous games due to injury.
Tuipulotu has 29 tackles with four for loss this season.
