Nate Branch how has your season been so far?
This season has been great so far! I’m thankful we get the opportunity to play this year considering the circumstances. We are off to a 2-1 start with a big win against Fremd this past week. Getting ready to play Hoffman this Friday and continuing to compete for a conference championship.
What does football mean to you?
Football to me is the ultimate team sport. There is nothing that compares to the brotherhood in football let alone Palatine football. Football has taught me things like discipline, hard work, and commitment and it gives me the drive to be a better person on and off the field.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
I am a team first player who is willing to do whatever it takes to help my team win. My versatility has allowed me to be an asset on both the inside and outside playing fullback, tight end, and slot receiver.
What is your favorite route to run?
My favorite route would have to be the wheel route. I like that I can catch the ball early and make a play in space or catch the ball deeper and be able to go up and make a play over a defender.
What should college coaches know about you?
College coaches should know that I love the game of football and I love to compete. I put in the hard work on and off the field. As a sophomore, I’m a 2 sport varsity athlete earning a 3.8 GPA looking forward to the opportunity to play at the next level!
