Maine South’s 2018 RB Fotis Kokosioulis is not only one of the most dynamic runners in the state, but is also a state champion. I had the chance to see Fotis play a few times this past season and I believe that he is still not getting nearly the recruiting attention he deserves. He updated me on his recruiting.

You can find Fotis on Twitter @fotiskoko1.

LPI: Now that your season is over it’s already time to get ready for next season. What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason?

FK: We are trying to lift very hard this offseason. As a team we need to get stronger than most because we are not the biggest but if we lift a lot that can help on the field.

LPI: You do not have any offers as of right now, but I’ve seen you play and believe you have what it takes to make an impact at the next level. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?

FK: First, I believe my heart, first step and lateral movement are unmatched! I also have very good strength and vision. Lastly, I am very versatile, I can run, catch, block or even throw it if need be. I can play HB, FB, SB, Kick Returner, Punt Returner.

LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?

FK: Miami Ohio, Columbia, Penn and Western Michigan have shown interest in me.

LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits or college camps coming up?

FK: I visited Miami Ohio about 3 weeks ago. I plan on making another visit possibly in the Spring. I also plan on visiting Columbia and possibly Western Michigan in the next couple months.

LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership?

FK: On and off the field I try to lead by example. On the field I try to work hard to set an example for everyone else. I also try to use my voice sometimes and give advice to my teammates as well as take it. Off the field, I try to get good grades and stay out of trouble.

LPI: Who are some of your teammates that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?

FK: I think we had a few good players that are over looked on my team.

John O’Sullivan: He has the size and the arm. He didn’t get to show off his talents much last year behind Nick Leongas, but he will have a good senior season this year.

Cam Stacy: He started last year and had good numbers. He can catch and run. He also plays safety and started last year on defense as well. He will have a big season this year too.

Rory Hayes: He has great size and he can jump up and snag balls. He played both ways last year, but got injured so I think next season will be a big year for him.

Peter Skronski: A freshman lineman who has good size, ability and upside. His grandpa is also in the Hall of Fame. There’s plenty more on our team but these are the kids that stick out most.
