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
Owen Pechous WR York Class of 2020 6'3 165
Owen Pechous how was your 2018 season?
2018 was a fun year. We had a strong group of seniors that played the right way and were very willing to help the junior class; including myself. I started every game at WR last year and got the ball a lot. At York we like to spread the field and play up tempo so as a wide receiver it’s a lot of fun.
Favorite memory of 2018?
My favorite memory was the last game of the year against Downers Grove North. Although we had been eliminated from the playoffs it was our seniors’ last game. We were playing for pride against a team who had to win to get into the playoffs. We won that game which allowed our senior class to walk off the field one last time with a win and it gave us nice momentum going into the offseason.
What schools have you talked to?
I’ve been talking to number of schools from the Ivy and Patriot Leagues. I also attended Drake’s Junior Day and was invited to attend games at Ball State and Minnesota.
Explain the excitement that is in this York football program?
The energy, excitement and determination with York Football is at a very high level. It’s a great time to be a Duke!! Last year was Coach Fitzgerald’s first year. The core values and culture he brought into the program has been amazing. I couldn't be more excited to keep the momentum going this year and keep building.
What should college coaches know about you?
I would like them to know that I’m a hard worker on the field and in the class room. I consider myself a student of the game and love watching film to improve my skills and get an edge on the competition. I also enjoy spending a lot of time during the off-season working on my route running technique and receiving skills with our QBs and my 7v7 team, Midwest Boom.
What game are you most excited about this season?
What part of your game have you been trying to improve in the offseason?
The areas I’ve been working on are speed, strength, and perfecting my route running technique,
What does your summer college camp schedule look like?
My June schedule includes attending camps at Northwestern, Iowa, North Central, Lake Forest and the NDSU camp at the end of June. In July, I plan to attend individual camps at colleges including some schools out East.
What goal do you have for yourself this upcoming season?
My first goal is to be the best team-mate I can be and help our incoming Juniors anyway I can. Secondly, I want to help York get back into the playoffs this year and make a run. Finally, if I continue to work hard in the classroom and on the field it is a goal of mine to play college football.
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of Football In The IHSA
