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
Hunter Simmons Class of 2021 Mt. Vernon QB 6'4 211
Hunter Simmons how was your 2019 season?
It was great. Coming off a season ending broken leg my sophomore year and having a young team I didn’t know what to expect. The year was great though, although the team may not of had the year we were hoping for I had a great season personally setting multiple school passing records.
What does football mean to you?
Football means everything to me...it’s something about the game that is just special to me. I grew up around football my entire life and I fell in love with it
What was your favorite memory from last season?
Our week 8 game against Centralia... our two towns rivalry goes way back. Just the atmosphere of the game was amazing.
What should college coaches know about you?
That I am going to work harder than any guy against me. My work ethic is something I pride myself on, on the field and in the classroom. I am very coach able and a great teammate.
What part of your game do you feel you need to work on in the offseason?
More the metal part of the game... being able to quickly read a defense so I know what calls I need to make and where my reads are. Games are won and lost in the film room
Who else on MT.Vernon should I be on the lookout for in 2020?
My brother Evan Leake. Absolute stud and could help out any program in the country.
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of IHSA Football
RESPECT THE GAME
