LPI: What was it like starting on varsity as a sophomore and how do you think that experience will help you moving forward?
PS: Starting on varsity as a sophomore was an amazing experience for me. Being a huge Hawks fan growing up, at times it was pretty surreal. This year’s seniors were a great example of leadership and I hope to emulate that throughout my junior and senior seasons.
LPI: Tell me what you’ve been doing to take your game to the next level. Also, do you play any other sports in the offseason?
PS: Right now I’m in the middle of basketball season at Maine South. Playing basketball has really been great for my feet and quickness and it’s also a great opportunity to compete. I’ve been squeezing in as much lifting as possible in between games and practices. In the spring, I’ll be doing shot put and discus which is also great because I have the opportunity to lift almost everyday for that. I am also working on my technique as a lineman at EFT on Sundays.
LPI: What schools have shown serious interest in you or what schools have you been in touch with the most?
PS: Well, I’ve received offers from University of Illinois and Western Michigan and I am in strong contact with those schools. I’ve also spoken a lot to coaches from Northwestern, Duke, Iowa, Penn State, and Vanderbilt.
LPI: Do you have any planned visits set? If so, where at and when?
PS: I don’t have anything planned for sure yet, but I have a few in mind. I’ll most likely go down to visit Illinois for a basketball game in the coming weeks. Over spring break, I was planning on seeing Duke and possibly Vanderbilt. I should have a better idea on visits in a few more weeks.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Ryan Kilburg : Ryan was the other sophomore on varsity this year for Maine South. He’s a really great athlete who can make plays all over. Even as a sophomore, he laid some pretty big hits on kids in games. I’m positive coaches will be taking notice of Ryan soon enough.
Luke Preston : Luke was extremely dominant on our defensive line this year. He has the strength of an offensive linemen with the speed of a linebacker. He might not be the tallest defensive lineman but he’s ridiculously hard to block. I dread going against him in practice but his skills make me a better player.
Michael Velasquez : Michael is a sophomore and he played on the sophomore team where he absolutely dominated. I’m pretty sure he kicked, punted, played receiver, safety and cornerback. I was also fortunate enough to witness his incredible speed during the track season. I’m sure he’ll still be dominating after only a few games next year.
Maine South Head Coach David Inserra on Skoronski on and off the field
“All the boxes can be checked off with Peter Skoronski. 100% ranking on family, character, work ethic, grades, coach-ability, grit, technique, size and weight room numbers. As a head coach for 17 years Peter, as a sophomore, is at the top of the list for all these football and non-football characteristics. He is a no-brainer FBS recruit.”
