I was able to see Fort Frye once this past season and it was not so much that anyone stood out, it was that they played as a unit. This young man might fly under the radar, so to speak but make no mistake about it there is not one school he faced that did not know him when the game was over. Any college coach who looks at him would be smart to do so. If I were a betting man I would bet the boat on this kid leaving his mark for any college program he decides to go to.

 

1- Now that your high school football career is finished have you had time to reflect on how well you and your team have done during that time?

Yes and I’m happy about it turned out just wish I could have played and won one more game with my brothers.  

 

2- What will you miss most about Friday Nights under the lights?

Playing with the guys I’ve played with since I was in the 3rd grade. It’s just tough thinking I’ll never play another snap under the lights with those guys.

 

3- I have to believe you have spoken to some college coaches about playing college ball. If I am correct on that would you be inclined to let everyone know some of the schools you have spoken with?

So far I’ve received 2 offers one from Lake Erie College and another from Otterbein University, but I’ve been in contact with several other Colleges.

 

4- What other sports if only do you play at Fort Frye?

I’m a three-sport athlete. I play football, basketball, and I run track( I throw discus and shot-put).

 

5- Who is the one team you would have liked to play that you did not get to during your time at Fort Frye?

In my junior year I would have liked a shot at Trimble, and this past year I would have liked to play Coldwater.

 

6- You are a force on defense. What do you believe makes that so beside God-given talent?

It would definitely be lifting at 6 in the morning, the coaching, and my d line not allowing offensive linemen to get to me.

 

7- As a team how often do you guys hit the weights?

During the off-season, we lifted 5 days a week and had a group of guys that went in at 6 am because we couldn’t make it to lifting after school. During the season we believed it was important to lift at least 2 times a week.

 

8-What was the hardest thing about practice?

Going inside run and running the same play over and over again till we got it perfect.

 

9- What was the best advice you ever received from a coach? Please name the coach?

Play for the guy beside you, NOT yourself. Coach Ross

 

10- Down the road after your playing days are over would you ever consider getting into coaching?

Yeah, I could see myself getting into coaching one day. Just for the love of the game and to teach kids lessons that they will carry for the rest of their lives just like my coaches thought me.
