Caden O'Rourke Lincoln Way East DE/ATH Class of 2025 6'5 195

Caden O'Rourke how was your freshmen season? I feel like my freshman season was very exciting, I was given the opportunity to play on all three levels freshman, sophomore, and varsity. Though most of the year I played on the sophomore team. I felt honored to play with such great coach’s and teammates that guided me to become a better player. What does football mean to you? Football is everything to me, it’s a part of me, it’s who I am. I’ve played the sport since I was 6 and I grew up watching it my entire life. I hope to play as long as God will let me. What should college coaches know about you? I think other than my physical characteristics college coaches should know that I have a drive to be successful and the commitment to succeed on and off of the field. What do you like about playing in the trenches? I’m a competitive person. I love the physical contact and just being 1 on 1 with the guy across from me. I have great experience with 1 on 1 contact through my 12 years of wrestling. How was your wrestling season? Much like football I had the opportunity to wrestle on all three levels. I wrestled mostly on JV and went undefeated throughout the season. I finished the fresh/soph Illinois state series as a 3rd place finisher. I feel like it was a very successful season. What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season? My goals for this upcoming season is to increase all PR’s. I want to gain 20 pounds and get better at my technique, so I can help and contribute to my team winning a state championship.
