What does Prospect football mean to you?
Growing up 6 blocks from Prospect, its been a dream of mine to play in Columbia and Navy on friday nights. Being able to play Quarterback for Prospect Football is a dream come true. I was so lucky as a young kid to watch so many great prospect football teams and my passion for the P during the 2005 state championship run. This program is built on Toughness, Pride, Courage, and Heart. Its safe to say this program means everything to me. Also, my dad was also a prospect football player and wore #10. All conference DE 1986.

One thing I want college coaches to know about me is my resilience and my dependability. I am a very loyal and passionate person
So you have Coach DeBoeuf taking over for Prospect, it early but have you learned anything from Coach DeBoeuf?
I had a brief conversation with him on the phone but I am already thrilled with the decision we made in bringing him in. I can’t wait to start working with him. You can’t argue with his success at Johnsburg and his high powered offense

Highland Park, Hersey, BG, Hinsdale South were all really good

Win the 7A State Championship. If that is not everyones goal then they have the wrong mindset.

Adam Mekky, Michael Shafis, Brian Doherty, Sebastian Swistak, Michael Cima are all guys with loads of potential. Several others as well I just don’t want to give away some sleepers
