LPI: Your team had a great year finishing at 9-2, but losing to a tough Maine South team (that is now in the state championship game) in the 8A playoffs. Now that your season is over, what are you going to do to take your game to the next level?
LM:: I’m very proud of my team and how we battled the whole season. We made memories that will last a life time. Now that the season is over, I am beginning to train for the college level of football. I workout at Barrington High School, focusing more on lifting, and with my trainer outside of school, focusing more on speed & agility. I also work on my diet and eating healthy foods to maximize my training results. I am also on the track & field team at BHS and that starts in the winter. Track helps me keep my speed up and my overall conditioning up to par.
LPI: You currently have offers from FCS Valpo, D2 Winona State and D3 St. Norbert. What are your greatest strengths or what can you bring to the table for a college football program?
LM: My greatest strength as a player and person is my leadership attribute. I was a captain for my team and I helped lead the team in the right direction on and off the field. I am not afraid to be in a leadership role and I embrace the role because I understand how big of an impact I can make on someone. I will bring my leadership ability along with my relentless effort to always better myself. I make sure to look for ways to bring myself to the highest level possible; I enjoy criticism and use it as a way to make me a more well-rounded player and person.
LPI: Besides the schools that have offered you, which schools have you kept in contact with the most? Or which schools have shown interest in you?
LM: I’ve been talking to Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Columbia, Princeton, Northwestern, and NDSU. I am also talking to most of the Patriot and Pioneer League schools along with Georgetown and Villanova.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits coming up?
LM: I have visited and camped at Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, and Brown. I have also visited Northwestern, Butler, and The University of Illinois. I have official visits planned to Yale and Dayton and I am still in the process of scheduling more.
LPI: You guys have some very talented kids on your team receiving recruiting attention such as yourself, Blake Holley, Jackson Perkins, Nick Bart, Josh Babicz, Alec Andrea and John Stefan. Who are some of your other teammates that you believe have a chance to play at the next level, but may be getting overlooked by college coaches?
LM: One person on my team that I believe has a chance to play at the next level is Mark Bach. He was my starting center, an all-conference player, and an all around awesome guy. Mark works the hardest out of anyone I’ve ever met. He always brings massive amounts of energy to the practice and our games. Mark was also a fellow captain of mine and he exemplifies what it means to be a BHS football program player. Even though he is “undersized” to some college coaches, his heart and work effort shines through it. Mark is the kind of player that just wants to get on the field and do anything to make the team better. He is getting recruited by some smaller schools to play football but he definitely has the whole package that’ll contribute to a solid football program. Mark deserves it more than any person I know.
