LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing any other sports or 7on7?

TS: I train with Greg from Next Level every week sometimes two times a week. I lift every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before school. I also play high school baseball and play for a travel baseball team. I’m on the 18u TNT red team with Tom Nelson.

LPI: You do not have any offers as of right now, but are working to prove to college coaches that you can make an impact at the next level. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?

TS: I actually picked up my first offer from St. Norbert a couple weeks ago, but I’m really working on this offseason to become a better leader on and off the field.

LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?

TS: I’ve talked to Holy Cross, they really want me to come down for a visit. I’ve talked to Bucknell and Columbia also. I’m going up to Minnesota State-Moorhead for a visit in the next couple weeks.

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

TS: I visited Saint Francis last Tuesday. I have a visit at the University of Illinois on March 10th and I plan on going to a couple Big Ten camps.

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

TS: I try to be the best person I can possibly be. I try to lead by example. The weight room is a huge part of the off season so I try to push everyone to there max so they can become better players and people on and off the field.

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


Genio Hyppolite – He gives 100% every play. He can play both ways. And he is a true running back. He was All area honorable mention last year!

Brandon Paeng – A true competitor. He also plays both ways. He plays from his heart and never takes a play off.
