Talking Again With Benet's QB Colin Gillespie Class Of 2020 About Recruiting

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

Colin Gillespie Class of 2020 Benet QB 6'1 175

Colin Gillespie welcome back... How was your 2018 season?

It was great, obviously it didn’t finish the way we wanted it to and we thought we were going to go further but I think it was still good overall

What schools have you been talking to so far?

I’ve been talking mostly with Ivy League schools- Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Brown as well as UChicago who has offered me a spot

What schools have you visited so far?

I’ve taken unofficial visits to Harvard, Brown, Holy Cross, UChicago as well as Northwestern and NIU on team visits

So what is your goal for yourself this season?

This season I really want to emerge as more of a vocal leader on top of being a leader by example in order to try to help the guys around me. Personally, I’d like to increase my pass completion percentage and take better care of the ball, I think those are two places I can really improve

What do you feel is your strongest trait on the field?

I think my strongest trait is probably the fact that I’m more of a dual threat QB and that at any time I can just run and threaten defenses with my legs as well as my arm

What players on Benet do you think will burst onto the scene this upcoming season?

Jacob Snell has been getting a lot of buzz this spring but I think he’ll definitely back it up with his play at DE and TE. Other names to look out for are Cole Walsh, Michael McGivney, and Sean Torres

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