LPI: What are you doing to do to elevate your game before heading off to college late this summer?

CM: This off season I dedicated my time to gaining size and speed. I’ve been getting ready for indoor track and outdoor which a great asset in building speed and hip mobility. I have also changed my diet which is vital key to elevating my game.

LPI: Where do you have offers from at the moment?

CM: Currently I do not hold any offers although I have been in contact with coaches from all levels.

LPI: What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program? Or why should a school offer you?

CM: As an athlete.

LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership or go the extra mile for your teammates?

CM: As a football player, being a leader is leading by example, being on time and doing the little things. Also being competitive and having a high motor while bringing the younger guys along. Off the field, I am youth group leader at Timothy Lutheran Church. I also volunteer my time at a disaster stricken area over the summer to give back to those in need.

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


Preston Riley Stahl – A physical linebacker who has a niche for finding the ball. His work ethic at practice is incomparable. He led the Hornets in tackles his junior season.

Cody Schrader – He’s from Lutheran High School South in Saint Louis Missouri and is a former high school teammates of mine. He just completed his junior season and lead the area in touchdowns. Cody is also a hit monster at the linebacker position. His work ethic you will not find anywhere else.
