LPI: You guys finished the season very well at 9-3, but lost against a very good Peoria team in the 5A quarterfinals. Now that your season is over, what are you going to do to take your game to the next level?
AR: My goal since grade school and JFL has always been to play NCAA Division 1 football. I have trained in the weight room with my dad since I was 12 years old and gone to many camps over the last 4 years. I have always given maximum effort in all aspects of my life. I will continue to train and I’ll leave the rest in God’s hands.
LPI: You currently don’t have any offers, but are trying to prove to college coaches that you have what it takes to play college ball. What are your greatest strengths or what can you bring to the table for a college football program?
AR: I think my greatest strengths are that I am coachable. I’ve been a leader on and off the field for my teammates and classmates. I lead by example, and try to motivate my team with words as well. I am fortunate enough to have been raised by two amazing and supportive parents in a loving household, which transitions very well to a family/team oriented football program. Another big strength is my strength and speed off of the ball.
LPI: Which schools have you kept in contact with the most? Or which schools have shown interest in you?
AR: I attended some camps at Western Illinois, Illinois State, Indiana State, McKendree University, and Southern Illinois. They all invited me to their junior days and either a spring game and/or a regular season game. I have kept in contact with all of them through text, emails and letters and hope to visit them soon.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits coming up?
AR: Most recently, I visited Western Illinois University. I don’t have any planned official visits at this point. I hope to do that soon.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership?
AR: I mostly lead by example. I feel my actions are the best way to demonstrate my character and integrity on and off the field. I hold myself accountable for my actions on and off the field 1st and foremost. But I do lead my teammates vocally, anyone knows if they are having trouble that they can come talk to me. I think my teammates look up to me because of this and also because I am a good player.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates that you believe have a chance to play at the next level, but may be getting overlooked by college coaches?
AR: I think that Mason Diederich can be a great player at the next level for sure. He’s not the biggest linebacker but he’s an outstanding athlete and a big hitter. He’s also our team’s leading rusher this year and can’t seem to get tackled by less than 3 people. We can always count on him in times of adversity because he plays so well under pressure. Our team has a lot of players that can play at the next level if they put their mind to it. Especially Tristan Duro, Garrett Frank and Daniel Witherspoon are great athletes and leaders.
