Mount Carmel football means everything to me. I practically grew up at the school and around the football team. I have been going to games since as long as I can remember.

My favorite memory was definitely when we beat East St Louis to advance to the semifinals last year. It was a very close and intense game.
So how does Mt.Carmel look this season?
We have a lot starters coming back from last year on both sides of the ball. Our defense is looking really strong so far and our offense is continuing to get better every day.
What do you think the biggest misconception about Mt.Carmel football is?
I think the biggest misconception is that all of our players are big time recruits or prospects when in reality most of us have just worked really hard to get to where we are.

I’m most excited about our first 3 games. Hope, Maine South, and Loyola because i think it gives us a good opportunity to show everybody how good we are.
This is your last season of Mt.Carmel football.. What advice do you have for incoming Mt.Carmel players?
My best advice would be to listen to the coaches and to work as hard as you can. If you do those two things you will become a very good football player.
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of Football In The IHSA
