Chatting It Up With Vernon Hills Playmaker 6'5 WR Mekhi McCarthy Class of 2019

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

Mekhi McCarthy 6'5 192 WR Class of 2019 Vernon Hills


Mekhi McCarthy is going to be one of those Spring/Summer risers that I like to talk about so much. Great hands, and of course great frame for a Run & Shoot WR that could possibly be moved to tight end in college. Mekhi's frame, hands is what will make him special for this 2019 Class.


Mekhi McCarthy what schools have you been talking to?

Cornell University, Holy Cross University, and Pennsylvania University

What is one thing that College Coaches might not know about you?

That I love eating steak chimichangas

lol ok- never had that answer before

Favorite memory from last season?

Going head-to-head against a top cornerback week 4. Definitely one of the best experiences for me

How has Basketball helped in developing your receiving skills?

It’s helped me mentally when we’re facing a really good team to keep pushing no matter what. It’s helped me physically with reacting to the ball, my vertical has most definitely increased and cutting to the basket which transitions to my route running.

You have a great Head Coach in Coach Bellacomo, Any funny stories?

Anytime we’d be on defense and there was a bad call he’d always yell and his face would just get extremely red lol

What is a personal goal for you this season?

Going to state again with my teammates!!

That’s been the goal the past 2 years

Is there a Vernon Hills player that coaches should know about that might not know?

Brad Gothelf -Sophomore- he’s our defensive and offensive lineman, Zackary Taylor -Junior- Linebacker & Jack Morris - Junior - Linebacker

Is there one game you are looking forward to this season?

Vernon Hills @ Waukegan because I grew up with most of the guys that play at Waukegan. That’s my hometown so

Favorite route as WR for you?

15 yard comeback or the 10 yard post

Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of Football In The IHSA
