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

MB: I work out twice a day, once in the morning and again after school with team weight training. I’m also currently playing 7on7 with BOOM STL.

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?

MB: I can play any position I am put at and excel at it. I don’t have the biggest hands but I can make some amazing catches. I also have great speed, quick feet, sharp routes and can jump.

LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?

MB: Indiana State, South Dakota, Bowling Green, SIUC, and Princeton.

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

MB: I went on a junior day up at Carbondale. I’m planning on going over to Indiana State for a visit May 15th.

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

MB: I go all out for my teammates, when someone is down I pick them up. I give good advice, make sure all my teammates have the right mindset. I also make sure they keep up with their grades and homework, because if one man falls we all fall.

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?


My teammates Devyn Nash, Eric Rheinecker, Payton Ledbetter, Patrick Ahrens, Burke Watts, Anthony Hughes, Ron Jones, Justin Strong. Really my whole team, Althoff produces college athletes as a whole.


Devyn Nash (DL) – Has nice footwork, breathtaking moves off the line and will kill any OL that steps in front of him.

Justin Strong (RB/WR/DB) – Has some nice big hands, amazing size for his position, and a lockdown defensive back.

Eric Rheinecker (OL) – Is a nice big lineman with great footwork and is always perfecting his craft, he trains 7 days a week and has a hard work ethic. Lastly,

Patrick Ahrens(OL) – He is a 6’9 offensive lineman with long arms and nice footwork, definitely D1 potential.
