Talking With One Of The Best Defensive Tackles In Illinois Lake Zurich's Jackson Farsalas Class

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

Jackson Farsalas Class of 2019 DT 6'3 260 Lake Zurich

Jackson Farsalas what schools have you been talking to?

Sioux Falls NDSU and the ones who have offered me are Winona St. and UMary And I’ve been talking a little to Western Illinois

What does football mean to you?

It means a lot to me....

Football gave me everything I have today other than my family

It gave me some of the greatest friends I will have

Memories to cherish forever and an education.

Favorite memory from last season?

When we intercepted the ball from Mt. Carmel to win the semis last year at home. It was great the whole stadium flipped out. Not to mention the fact of living out the childhood dream of playing in the snow

What do you like about playing defensive tackle?

It’s very physical and it’s a position that is very important and a hard working position. On top of that there’s not a better feeling when you bowl over an offensive lineman and get a TFL

What would you like college coaches to know about you?

I’m a hard working passionate player who plays for the love of the game and that I’m loyal to a fault whether it’s my teammates, coaches, or fans

So how does Lake Zurich football look this season?

Oh it’s looking great we are all hungry for this season

What college has made a great impression on you?

Winona State has, I really like what they are doing there. The campus is great and i really like the coaches

Must ask the hard hitting questions as you know, How does Lake Zurich win without Yianni?

Man I don’t know the oline won’t be the same without him but there’s another kid who hopefully could fill the grit that Yianni left behind

Give me a young Lake Zurich player from 2020-2021 that we need to be on the lookout for?

Spencer Bacon is a guy you should definitely look for.

Great lineman with a great last name


Jackson Farsalas is very much a underlooked defensive tackle in the state of Illinois. Great job of closing gaps and getting that inside arm in the on a interior linemen. Identifies quickly what move to do when getting out of his stance to get the advantage on the opposing lineman.

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