Eddie Kasper Wheaton Academy WR Class of 2022 5'10 160

Eddie Kasper what does football mean to you? Football is in a way, the main sport I wanted to play growing up. My uncle (Kevin Kasper) played receiver at Iowa and then had an eight year career in the NFL, so there has just always been football around me. I played flag football growing up and was finally allowed to play tackle football in eighth grade. Unfortunately, we got an email saying that the league folded the night before practice was supposed to start. Being homeschooled in Illinois I didn’t get the opportunity to play until my junior year of high school when we had moved to Wisconsin. Getting a late start was rough, but with my Uncle’s help along with my family supporting me, I have begun to turn the corner and see the potential I have as a slot receiver. At this point I’m trying to do everything in my power to be able to play at the next level. What should college coaches know about you? I want the coaches to know that I am the type of person who embraces criticism and thrives under pressure. Being new to the game, criticism is something I have to accept in order to get better. The fact that I am coachable is what separates me from others. As a smaller receiver, route running and being a mental player are essential parts of my game, and I push myself every day to expand my overall knowledge of those categories. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? My strongest trait on the field is creating open space through my route running. Being aware of who is where on the field and knowing how to find that space is an art that I embrace. What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season? The goal is short and simple, give everything I have to my team and come away with film from it. Not having enough film throws a wrench in the recruiting process for me, and hopefully with a decent amount of catches during the season, that could change. What is your favorite route to run? That is a hard one, but mainly your basic slot routes: 10 and out, drip, whip, and post corner. If I had to pick one it would be 10 and out though for sure.

Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of IHSA Football
