Malcolm Babers how is your season going for you so far? It is going well, but not how I want it to be you know. I still have 6 games left of my Senior year (plus playoffs.) I'm doing good on both sides of the ball. Being a good leader for my team/captain. Team is currently 3-0 and we plan on keeping the win streak for a while. What does football mean to you? Football plays a big part of my life. It's a lot I can say, but it builds a Family/Brotherhood with people you may not even think you'll ever talk to. It's the sport that makes you cry, laugh, have a burst of anger at points, and overjoyed. Sport that you can call strangers brothers. What should college coaches know about you? They should know that I am willing to give 110% of effort at all times no matter where I am. I'm talking in the classroom and on the field. I will give the team good looks if I'm needed on scout to make my teammates and coaches better. Also, would be there with honesty, love and support. How does it feel being 3-0? Being 3-0 means a lot for my team. Especially us Seniors because when we were Freshmen, we went 0-9, Sophomore year was covid season, so we went 2-3. So, we passed our past wins already which means a lot to us because it shows how hard we've been working and improving over our high school years. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I feel like my elusiveness, downhill running and having the ability to break tackles are my strongest traits and blocking. Who on Bartlett is having a breakout season? My boys Koleman Slayers, Jalen Davis, Dontain Williams, Kael Lewis, John Tarasawics, Zach Meyer, Myself, Sam Mancilla, Aiden Alba, Blake McCluskey, Matthew Terueal, Ravi Banipal. a couple more but those are the dudes on our team. What goals do you have for yourself the rest of the season?
Have it as my lock screen. Most TDs in conference, most yards per game, and most yards in conference.
