Jonah O'Brien Class of 2019 QB Bartlett 6'3 195
Jonah O'Brien how has your season been so far?
The seasons been good so far, obviously 2 losses is not want we wanted but we’ve come along way since the beginning of the season. Our goal is to just go 1-0 every week and do the little things right.
What has been one of your favorite memories this season so far?
So far my favorite part of the season is winning/competing everyday and getting to know all of the guys on the team since I’m new to Bartlett
Talking about that.. What are differences between Wisconsin and Illinois HS football?
I’d say the biggest difference between the two is the competition, I played for Kaukauna High School back in Wisconsin, they are in the FVA conference which is one of the hardest conferences, but they really only have 1 good team in that conference which is Kimberly who had the nations longest win streak a year ago. Here in Illinois every team is good and if you’re not prepared things could turn out bad
What does football mean to you?
Football means everything to me, I’ve been playing since I was 5 years old. Football has been my entire life whether it’s the workouts in the offseason or in season, I put 100% of my focus and energy into football
What challenge do you see in the upcoming game with South Elgin?
I obviously haven’t played any of them, but from watching film on them, I see they have a lot of playmakers on the defense. If we come out and play our game from the start and play with energy and passion it’ll be a good night
What would you like college coaches to know about you?
I live, breathe, and eat football. I play with high energy throughout the whole game and never give up. I also play with a chip on my shoulder
Give me a player on Bartlett besides you and Spencer, on who I should keep an eye out for?
Alec Palella, that guy is a straight up beast. He plays offense, defense, and special teams, I don’t think he is ever off the field. Alec is only a sophomore which will be huge for next years team
What do you like about playing QB?
I love the pressure, when the games on the line I like the bell in my hands
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of Football In The IHSA
RESPECT THE GAME
