Henry Buecker Rochester DB/ATH Class Of 2024 5'11 150

Henry Buecker how is your season going so far? It’s been going well. We are 6-0 going into a couple tough games so I’m excited to see how we play through these upcoming games and the playoffs. What does football mean to you? To me, football is family. I’ve grown up through the football program because my dad is a coach. And it has allowed me to be in a tight knit brotherly like culture at Rochester. So I’m always excited to strap on the pads with my brothers wether it’s practice or games. What should college coaches know about you? I’m excited to play. I study the game of football harder than anyone and I am a big game player that will always out work everyone.

What has been your favorite memory so far this season? Coming out in our first game this season against a tough matchup team in Peoria and playing our best football. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? My football IQ, being around the game has made me the smartest player on the field. It allows me to read, react, and overall play faster. What goals do you have for yourself rest of the season? I want to make all-state and go undefeated to win a state championship. We want to be the best defense to ever come out of Rochester football.

Who is the funniest coach on the Rochester staff? We are blessed with the best coaching staff, but I would have to say the funniest is Coach Clarke because I am always around him. Who on Rochester is having breakout season? Everyone on our defense, we have collected 17 interceptions in 6 games. I would say Bryan Zulauf is having a great first year at quarterback to after having to step in when Parker Gillespie got injured.

What do incoming Rochester players need to know about this program? The expectation is to be undefeated and win state every year. It’s easier said than done. Trust your coaches, your teammates and study hard. The wins will follow.
