Hinsdale Central’s 2018 OT Sean Stanton is an under the radar OL with massive upside. We talked his offseason regimen, what schools are showing interest in him and I also got coach Dan Hartman’s thoughts on Stanton.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 275 lbs
LPI: What are doing this offseason to get ready for the season and take your game to the next level? Were you in any other sports?
SS: As a team we have been working out in the mornings all off season to be at the top of our game starting in week one. I played basketball as a freshman and sophomore and I believe that doing so helped my foot work and speed get to the level it is at today.
LPI: You currently have offers from Trinity College and Carleton College. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
SS: Over the summer I have gotten a couple of Division 3 offers, but I am still looking to play Division 1 and play against the top competition in the nation. The skill set that I can bring to the table for a college football program would be an athletic OL with the work ethic and competitive spirit where I can do whatever is asked of me.
LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?
SS: Other schools such as Harvard, Yale, Davidson, Dayton, Drake, Dartmouth, and Columbia have all shown serious interest.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits set?
SS: The last schools I visited were Yale and Harvard, but other schools have asked me to come out to campus during season to see a game and walk around campus.
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?
SS: At our school, we usually have a very strong football program so coaches usually know to come look at our guys whenever they get a chance. That being said, there are still some kids that are under the radar.
Justin Mysliwiec – Just a great player. He suffered an injury last year, but had a serious chance at a starting spot. He’s the strongest player I’ve ever played with, and will be a solid player at guard this year, and a monster when he takes snaps at the DL.
Roy Fuller – Is going to play the other guard on the OL and is another player to look for. He’s only a Junior so he might not get as many looks this year, but he’s another lineman with strength and athleticism.
Kevin Qin – Is going to play DE for us this year, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he started getting offers as soon as he can put film up. He’s an amazing athlete for his size and won’t go unnoticed when the season starts.
Luke Skokna – Played RB for us last year as a Sophomore and was incredible. He runs hard, makes great cuts, and always falls forward.
Caleb Lagestee – Is going to play DE/LB and is going to be flying around making plays left and right. He’s going to be impossible for teams to block in our conference along with the other players we’ll have in the box. Caleb is a great leader and would be a great player to have at any college team in the country.
Nick Biancalana – Is another player that should be getting looked at. He’s an ATH. He’s probably the best athlete on the team, leads our whole defense, makes plays from the safety position everywhere on the field, and is outstanding in coverage.
Hinsdale Central Head Coach Dan Hartman on Stanton on and off the field
“Sean is a great leader who had limited playing time as a young player but took that opportunity to learn every position on the offensive line and was ready when he was called upon. He then used the offseason to transform himself into our best lineman both on the field and in the classroom. He is a mentor for our younger players and a great example of a true student athlete.”
