Cole Livingston Casey-Westfield Athlete Class of 2023 6'0 175
Cole Livingston how is your season going for you so far?
It’s been going well this far into the year. I think I’ve met my expectations at the fullback position this year. My ability to run the ball has gotten better with every game we have played. I believe other teams know when they play us, they gotta find a way to slow down our backfield with me and Adam Keeney.
What should college coaches know about you?
I’d want coaches to know that when my teammates look at me, they see a guy who’s willing to go the extra mile to win football games. Who’s willing to give up his own time, to help his teammates and himself get better. I’d want the coaches to know there’s nothing more I want than getting a win on a Friday night.
What does football mean to you?
Football is so much more than just a game to me. Football has impacted my life by creating friendships and an addiction to wanting to get stronger and faster to become better for the next season. There is no better feeling than going out and playing a football game with my teammates.
What has been your favorite memory this season?
First game of the season against Olney. We were on the bus ride over when it started pouring. Our game was delayed for about 2 hours before we started playing. We came out and pounded the football. I got my first touchdown of the year on a fullback dive that I took 70 yards. We ended up winning 16-7. No one besides our coaches and players thought we had a chance to win. But, we came out and proved that we could play.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
My strongest trait would have to be the ability to understand our game plan and be able to take on change throughout the game and be able to adapt to the changes that are made.
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting
