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.
Xavier Saldana Class of 2019 St.Patrick ATH 5'9 165
COACH BIG PETE"S TAKE
Xavier is a promising playmaker, you want to get the ball in his hands. You can see flashes of it from his junior season especially on yards after the catch. Could be a fall riser in the recruiting trail for the state of Illinois.
Xavier Saldana what schools have you been talking to?
Recently none, but over these next couple of months, my mind is set to turn heads, and get an opportunity to play at the next level.
How was the North Central Camp?
It was a great experience. I think I did very well, and hopefully turned some eyes toward me. Also, got to go against some top recruits in the Chicagoland area and improve, and see where I’m at. Got to talk to a lot of coaches, and learned lots of new things.
What would you like college coaches to know about you?
That I have a ton of love for the game, and I would put anything on the field for the men beside me. I’ve worked tremendously hard this offseason, with little days of rest. Trying to make my dream come true, to play at the next level.
What was one of your favorite memories last season?
Scoring my first varsity touchdown at Soldier Field, off a bubble screen.
What goal do you have for yourself this season?
To leave everything on the field as a shamrock. Also, to make it to playoffs, and play to the best of my ability to achieve that.
Game you are most looking forward to this season?
Nazareth, they have a great group of guys, that I’ve played against since little League and have a ton of talent.
Funniest guy on the St.Patrick team?
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of Football In The IHSA
