Throwback Chicago Catholic linebacker, Max Forst is a rising linebacker to keep an eye out for this spring. Ability to read the keys and his quick reaction is some of the best in Illinois for the class. Does not hesitate to engage linemen, and makes great pursuits to the ball carrier.

Max Forst what schools have you been talking to?

I’ve been talking to a few schools. For example, I’ve been talking to Carthage, Minnesota state Morehead, mckendree, and Augustana.

What does Fenwick football mean to you?

Fenwick football means many things to me. First, I would say it means family. All the way from the coaching level to the players, everyone supports one in other. Also I would say fenwick football is all hard work and dedication to the game, Which is my number one core value. Finally, I would say tradition plays a big part within the football community at Fenwick.

What was one of your favorite memories last season?

I would say that my favorite memory of last season would be the de la salle game. The game was for the conference championship. It was a very close game between both teams. My favorite moment in that game would be the great stop our defense had in the last moments of the game. I made a couple key plays within that defense stand.

What do you want college coaches to know about you?

Some of my best qualities as a player are my work ethic, ability to read the offense, and my leadership ability. When it comes to work ethic, I am a very old style player. My game is all built off of my ability to outwork the other team and put a 100% heart and effort into everything I do. My ability to read the offensive comes in very handy when helping my teammates out. Lastly, my leadership ability is shown on and off the field. Recently, I was chosen by my school to represent fenwick at a youth leadership conference. Additional, I call the plays on defense, and was captain of both my freshman and sophomore teams.

Name me one player on Fenwick that college coaches should take a look at , that is flying under the radar?

I would definitely say Jimmy Towns. Jimmy is a upcoming wide receiver for Fenwick. His ability to put in hard work is something to note. Also he is very athletic overall.

Why do you like playing linebacker?

I like playing linebacker because of the physicality of the position. Like I said, i am a very old school type of player, so it fits well with my game. I also like the mental aspect of playing linebacker. For example, reading plays, calling the plays, and being able to adjust the defense accordingly.

What does it mean to you that this will be your senior season?

My senior season will be my chance to show my teammates, my school, and colleges how important football is to me. I want to leave a lasting impression on fenwick football. However, i look at my senior season as a end, but also a beginning. Fenwick will always have a special place in my heart and I could not be more excited to continue my academic and athletic career in college.

Its Early, How does Fenwick look this season?

I would say that we have a young team. However, we have a ton of potential within the team. We have a good amount of underclass that played last year that will be back this season. Overall, i think fenwick is a team that is always in the mix. Thanks you so much for this opportunity, I really appreciate it!
