Ty Lawrence Class of 2021 OL Libertyville 6'4 245
Ty Lawrence how was your 2019 season?
My 2019 season was great. It was my first year playing at Libertyville High School after transferring during the summer from Lake Forest High School. As an incoming junior last season on an unfamiliar team I had a lot to prove and a lot to show, and I knew that every day was an opportunity to not only show this team I belonged but could lead them on the field. I quickly made my presence known on the Offensive Line allowing zero sacks on the season and winning my teams award for “Most Valuable Offensive Lineman” the same award I won both seasons prior at Lake Forest High School.
What does football mean to you?
For me, football means competing and winning as a family. When you're running out to battle with your brothers at your side on a friday night there isn’t a much better feeling. That feeling, when the crowd is cheering and music is loud and the only thing you want to do is play and hit someone can’t be found anywhere else except the field.
What do you like about playing on the line?
What I love about the Offensive Line is that you can’t take one play off. If you make one mistake you can cost your team the game. I am constantly talking with our Offensive Line, from playcalls and assignments to learning and teaching one another we are constantly evolving our whole line together. I absolutely love playing Left Tackle and being that blindside protector for my QB, Blake Ellingson. From last season to this summer we are always communicating from practice to the game letting each other know where the opportunities are and it’s good to know that there is a very skilled player behind me when the going gets tough.
What schools have you talked to so far?
I've been in contact with St. Ambrose, St. Thomas, UWW and am also pursuing many Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference schools as well.
What should college coaches know about you?
That all I want to do is play football and help win games and that I would be a great addition to any roster.
How does this Libertyville squad look for 2021?
We are just excited and thankful that we are even getting to play this spring and we are just using this time to get better, work on our craft and make sure we are ready for week one. Last season was my first not being a two-way starter on the Defensive Line and this year I plan on taking that defensive spot back. With our current seniors and captains I would be on the lookout for the Wildcats this season because we plan on being the best team in the conference and letting the other teams know that we are not to be taken lightly.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the field?
My strongest trait on the field is my strength and tenacity. I feel like I have a bigger advantage over most of my competitors because of my size and speed and knowledge of both sides of the ball, and with this time off I feel that the team and I's presence both Offensively and Defensively will be more than known week one.
