Alex Poholik OL Mount Carmel Class Of 2024 6'3 285

Alex Poholik how was your junior season? I had a good Junior season. I started Varsity as a sophomore at right tackle. And last year as a junior I moved over and started left tackle. I finished the season earning SWSC Red All Conference Team for my second year. What does football mean to you? Football is a big part of my life. I’ve been playing since I was 6 years old. And football is more than a sport to me. It’s a teacher. It’s motivator. And it’s like a family member to me. I do other sports. But football is my life. What should college coaches know about you? I have a very strong work ethic. And I’m a very dedicated player. To my coaches and my teammates. I put everything out there all the time. In the weight room, and the fields.

What do you like about playing in the trenches? Football is a team sport. But on the line it’s me against the D. I love the battle and the combat of the position. I love getting an assignment and open that hole wide. And I’m always protecting my QB. What schools have you talked to so far? I transferred to Mount Carmel Chicago in November. And I have had the chance to talk to North Dakota State and Illinois State here at MC. As a sophomore at Lincoln Way West I talked to Ball State, Butler, Wyoming, NIU, Kansas State, Central Michigan and Western Michigan. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I think it’s my speed and my strength. I work very hard at both of them. Besides lifting with my team. I train weekly with a strength coach and a speed coach. I also wrestle and compete in judo. I get a lot of hand placement training there.

What goals do you have for yourself this season? I love the atmosphere here at MC. And Coach Lynch is already thrown me a challenge to play both sides of the ball this season. So that will be a big goal for me is to help my team the best I can on both sides. Also, my biggest goal is to be one of the best 2024 offensive linemen in Illinois this year for my senior season.
