Deep Dish Football Playoff Game Of The Week Player Spotlight Part 5: Batavia's Linebacker Luke W

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

Luke Weerts Batavia Class of 2019 Linebacker

North Dakota State Commit

Luke Weerts you ready for tomorrow?

Yes I am very ready! Our team has prepared intensely all week and it is going to be a great game!

What do you see in this Nazareth team?

I see an explosive offense and a well rounded defense. They have a lot of talent and we are gonna have to put the pressure on their sophomore quarterback.

What does it mean when I say "Senior Season"?

Well it means that no matter what this is my last season playing high school football and I want to end on a win.

Give me a Batavia player who you think will be a stud next season?

My little brother Mojo Weerts. He is second on the team in sacks and is a hard nosed player that loves to fly around and make hits. I may be a little bias but the kid is a stud!

How much does it mean to you guys that Coach Piron is a Batavia guy?

It means a lot! Him and a lot of other coaches on the team grew up in Batavia and they truly care about us as men. The pride that our coaches and players have for this city is unmatched and is a direct result of the success we have as a program.

How do you guys stay so humble?

We just know that we are not owed anything from anyone and we go out there and earn our worth every play of every game

Who wins in a spelling bee you or Jansey?

Definitely me (lol emoji)

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