Football player by day and competitive weightlifter by night, New Trier (IL) 2019 FB/LB Chamberlain Coffee talked his most recent visit and what is next for his football recruiting.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 233 lbs
LPI: What have you been doing this offseason to take your game to the next level. Also, do you play any other sports in the offseason?
CC: To improve my game next season I’ve been lifting with my team which also included speed training, so not only has my strength developed but my speed as well. I have competed in powerlifting, for the past two years. I will be competing at state next month, and I also placed 3rd at Nationals (in the 242 pound junior/senior division) this past spring break.
LPI: You’re versatile and excel at multiple positions. What position are you being recruiting at the most?
CC: Thank you for the compliment, I’ve been talking to some coaches about possibly playing as a fullback, but I’m willing to play any position in order to help my team. But I do think my strengths lie on the offensive side of the ball.
LPI: What schools have you been in touch with? Any schools close to offering?
CC: I’ve received interest from a lot of great Division 3 programs, and some Division 1 programs such as The Citadel. No schools have given me an offer.
LPI: Have you made any visits recently or do you have any visits coming up? If so, where at and when?
CC: I visited The Citadel over spring break and I don’t currently have any visits planned. I will however be attending the Citadel and Northwestern camps this summer.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you think can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Michael Endre He’s a worker with sure hands and speed. Carson Kosanovich because he’s an extremely physical player and Terry Zapf because he’s a big man with quick feet and a hard punch. They all definitely have potential at the next level and are being over looked.
New Trier coach Brian Doll on Coffee on and off the field
“Character wise he’s first class. He’s one of the leaders of our team and is one of our hardest lifters in the weightroom. He finished top 5 in the nation for his weight class for powerlifting. We moved him up his sophomore year and hasn’t missed a beat.”
