Effingham's Class Of 2021 WR Tristin Duncan Talks Flaming Heart Football & 2019 Upcoming Sea

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

Tristin Duncan Effingham WR/ATH 6'3 180 Class of 2021

Tristin Duncan how was your 2018 Season?

My 2018 season was great, no one expected us to make it as far as we did and making school history is always a lot of fun. We proved a lot of people wrong and showed that Effingham Football isn’t something to be taken lightly.

Favorite memory of the 2018 season?

Definitely playing Bishop McNamara in week 12 of the playoffs. It was my first week back from injury since week 7 and it was the first time in 31 years that we had made it that far into the playoffs.

What would you like college coaches to know about you?

That I’m extremely hard working and it’s been a big dream of mine to play college football from a very young age. I’m dedicated and not scared to compete

Favorite route to run?

X post with out a doubt. Touchdown or 50 yards every time. You just get open and get gone.

So how does Effingham look for the upcoming season?

I think we look great. We have a lot of guys who are hungry. The 3rd round of the playoffs wasn’t good enough for us and we aren’t satisfied. I think that if we all buy in and dedicate ourselves we can shock the world.

What game are you most looking forward to this upcoming season?

Taylorville, it’s a big rivalry and they’re always a lot of fun to play.

Who are some Effingham players I should keep an eye on for the upcoming season?

Nathan Shakelford, Logan Brown, Austin Herboth, Ethan Huss, and Mason Hasty

Effingham seems to re-invent itself every season with the exit of talented seniors and entrance of talented juniors/sophomores... Why do you think that it is or what can you attribute that to?

I think it has a lot to do with the culture and the hard work of those that came before us. The upperclassmen set a really good example not only as football players but as men. Coach Hefner does a really good job too, coaching us up and getting us acclimated and he deserves a lot of the credit. We couldn’t do it without him.

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