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

MJ: At the end of last season I dedicated myself to becoming a better player. My quarterback coach, Steve Gregory with The Quarterback Farm and I have been training the entire off season with the goal of taking my team deep into the playoffs and beyond. I also have been speed training with Tim Graf at Graf Speed, working on my quickness and foot work.

LPI: You currently don’t have any offers, but I believe you have what it takes to play at the next level. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?

MJ: I believe that I can play at the next level because I am a student of the game and I have been winning at every level since I started playing football. My love for the game drives me to be a great teammate and team leader both on and off the field. My coaches from youth all the way through playing here at Lincoln-Way East have instilled the confidence in me and given me the abilities to take my team to an elite level.

LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?

MJ: Last off-season I was invited to a prospect camp at Grand View University where I was offered a scholarship as the youngest player in camp as a freshman. As of right now Purdue, Minnesota, Missouri, Penn State, North Carolina, Arkansas, Miami of Ohio along with several others have shown interest.

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

MJ: My most recent visit was Minnesota for their spring game. Before that I had visits with Western Michigan and Michigan State. I am still setting up my camp schedule, but as of right now it looks like Arkansas, Northwestern, Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin, Purdue and maybe a couple local satellite camps.

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

MJ: As a Quarterback, it is extremely important to demonstrate leadership both on and off the field. I try my best every day to be a leader by example along with being a vocal leader as well. Some examples of this include, trying to get a bunch of guys up to the field on a day we don’t have lifting and getting some extra team reps. Bringing the squad together as often as possible can only be a positive for us. Off the field it’s even more important to lead the team by example. Doing your best every day in the classroom and volunteering throughout the community.

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?

MJ: There are so many great players on our team I wish I can name all 100 of them and write a paragraph on them all, but if I had to narrow it down:

Ryan Scianna: Is a senior running back on our team, he was one of the running backs that we relied on and leaned on heading into the playoffs last season. Ryan is a silent leader who doesn’t say much. He leads by his actions in the locker room, weight room, and on the field. Ryan would be a great addition to any college program.

Danny Scianna: is a linebacker who is as football smart as anyone I know. Danny can tell you where the play is going before the ball is even snapped due to the amount of preparation he puts into every game week by week. I have played with Danny since 3rd grade winning consistently at every level. He is a passionate player and hard hitter that will play at the next level and make his team better wherever he goes.

Brendan Morrissey: Brendan is a fast-hard-nosed football player, runs a 4.3 40 yard dash, and he just lives in the weight room. I see him working out at Graf speed enhancement as well at 8 am. This kid is humble and hungry. He has all the tools to play at the next level. I usually throw with Brendan in the mornings once in a while and I couldn’t be more excited for this season playing with such a fierce competitor.
