So in a way to better understand the use of Deep Dish Football for Illinois recruits and the whole entire IHSA Football scene. Decided to do player profiles of players who you might not know or you might know , but you should respect them for their roles on their respective teams.
Dionte Rodgers Class of 2019 RB Edwardsville 5'7 155
Coach Big Pete's Take
Dionte is 5'7 no doubt about that, but what he lacks in size he makes up for in field vision and toughness. One of the top playmaking RBs in the state of Illinois for the Class of 2019 .
Dionte Rodgers what schools have you been talking to?
I’ve talked to the university Illinois, Iowa , western Michigan ect. PENN has emailed me a couple of times but I’ve only have talked to them. I haven’t gotten an official offer from anyone yet
What do you feel is best attribute on the field?
I feel like I can really spread the defense with my outside running and also I’m very affective in the slot. I can run in between the tackles too
What is one thing you could improve in your game?
I can improve my on blocking and watching a lot of film to see what I’m doing wrong in order to get better, rather it’s fixing my footwork or making the right reads on blocks
What does Edwardsville Football mean to you?
Everything! Coach Martin always preaches on, we play for our brothers who played before us and we leave it all out on the field! But unfortunately I couldn’t do that this year with my team because of injuries in such but im ready to bounce back for my senior season !
What is one thing that College Coaches need to know about you?
That I’m a hard working young man that will love to play football at the next level! I have a love for the game that’s indescribable! I’ll do what ever it takes to play ball at the next level
Name one Edwardsville player that college coaches need to take a look?

What does Southern Illinois Area Football man to you?
This competition is amazing ! There are alot of good schools around here with a lot of good teams! Really good in the Chicago area but I feel like we’re up there too lol
