Talking With Top Illinois Linebacker Recruit Metea Valley's Jack Belskis Class Of 2020

So in a way to better understand the use of Deep Dish Football for lllinois 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. Every Football Player Has A Story To Tell

Jack Belskis Metea Valley LB Class of 2020 6'2 220

Jack Belskis how was your 2018 season?

Personally I had a very good season. I was a captain as a junior and I broke the single season tackling record at Metea Valley with 111 tackles. As a team we struggled to get wins because we lost a lot of key players due to injuries. Despite that, we had a lot of guys step up and give it their all.

What schools have you talked to so far?

So far I have been in contact with Western Michigan, Harvard, Kansas State, Miami of Ohio, Illinois State, Indiana State, Rice, and Ball State.

What would you like college coaches to know about you?

I am a hard worker in the classroom as well as on the football field. I currently have a 4.1 GPA. In addition to football, I also play baseball. I love being part of a team that works hard as one.

What game are you looking forward to the most?

It’s always fun playing against the teams in 203 & 204 because I’ve played against or with some of them personally over the years since playing on the Patriots, and the Chargers.

What does playing linebacker mean to you?

Playing linebacker means so much to me. I love playing defense. The linebacker position allows for so much flexibility in skills - open field tackles, blitz, pass coverage - you can contribute on every play. It’s great to be able to see the play develop and help communicate that to your teammates.

What opposing player gave you the most trouble last season?

There were a few shifty running backs we played against that I just slipped off of.

Give me some players on Metea Valley I should be on the lookout for?

Players that you should be looking out for are Austin Frederick, Colin Wilcox, Elijah Wright, Octavio Lopez, and Kiamirrion Howze.

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