Sam Reichert QB Downers Grove North Class of 2023 6'3 190

Sam Reichert how was your junior season? My junior season was a great experience, but I know we have a lot of room to improve. We had a bunch of big/close games and unfortunately, we didn’t make it into the playoffs. However, we had a lot of guys step up as leaders on our team and pave the way for next season. Overall, this season was a great learning experience and we’re prepared to make a run next year. What does football mean to you? I truly love the sport of football. I have spent my whole childhood playing with some of these guys that I call my best friends. The bonds that I have made are unbreakable, like family. As for the game itself, while I’m playing, each moment is surreal and special. I love it because each play matters and it takes a cooperative effort from your teammates to get a W. What should college coaches know about you? One thing a push myself to be the best at is being a reliable teammate that everyone, including coaches, can count on. I have special bonds with all of the guys in our program, and I think it creates a healthy environment for our team to improve. With everyone pushing each other to be the best they can, it puts us in the best position to move forward and grow. What do you like about playing QB? I love the “field general” aspect of it where guys count on me as i count on them. I like being a reliable leader that can put everyone in the best position to make a play. The reciprocated expectations we have on each other allow us to become a great offensive unit and I love being the guy behind the center. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I think my strongest trait on the field is my ability to extend plays and improvise on the spot. During a football game, many unexpected things can happen. Being a QB, I feel like an important trait to have is to always have a ace up your sleeve. This part of my game is really able to help our team in tough situations like 3rd and long or the final few minutes of the game.

What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season? The two main goals I have this season are to win the West Suburban Silver Conference and make a run in the playoffs. I truly feel like are team definitely has the potential to compete with the best in the state. On top of that, our group of guys has a perfect mindset for this goal, coming off a tough season last year. We have a great team; I know that our senior year will be full of hard work success.
