Caught up with Glenbard North’s 2019 DB Josh Flowers on his recent commitment to Gulf Coach Prep Academy. Coach Ryan Wilkens also gave me his thoughts on Flowers.
Carol Stream, IL
Commitment: Gulf Coast Prep Academy
Wt: 175 lbs
LPI: What ultimately made you to choose prep school for the 2018-2019 season and how did you decide on Gulf Coast Prep Academy?
JF: Deciding to go to a prep school is something I have been considering for a long time. I feel that it is the best decision for To to grow as a student athlete and that it can push me in a positive direction. Gulf coast prep was interested in me and said they can help get me to where I need to be. I had a strong connection with the coach which also helped me choose that program.
LPI: What have you been doing to take your game to the next level. Also, do you play any other sports in the offseason or do you play 7on7?
JF: I have recently been training at Acceleration Sports Performance in Naperville to help my speed, strength, and my overall performance on the the game I love. I will also be playing with Midwest boom 7v7 which we will be traveling across the country to compete against the best of the best.
LPI: Do you consider yourself a leader? If so, how do you lead your teammates on and off the field?
JF: I feel I am a leader. I try to to push my teammates in a positive direction with good advice or anything they need help with on or off the field.
LPI: Who on your Glenbard North team has what it takes to play college ball, but are currently being under recruited?
JF: Everybody on the the Midwest BOOM team are great athletes and can play at the next level. It’s great because even at BOOM practice I get to compete against the best guys in the Midwest. From Glenbard North: Jabari Fitzpatrick also decided to take the prep route so he is a DB to watch with great feet and physical attributes. Kobie Jamison is a sophomore(class of 2020) DB who started in our secondary this year. He has the potential to be a great athlete on the field with very good technique. He will definitely be a good leader on Glenbard North’s upcoming season.
Glenbard North Head Coach Ryan Wilkens on Flowers on and off the field
“Was a captain and a two way starter who spent a great deal of time working on the field sharpening up his fundamentals at the defensive back and wide receiver positions.”
