Brock Baker Johnston City Athlete Class of 2023 6'1 215
Brock Baker how is your season going for you so far?
My season is treating me really well, I feel like i’ve made some plays and have done a good job building off the season i had last year. We’re 5-1 so I couldn’t complain.
What does football mean to you?
Football is everything, my love & respect for the game motivates me more than anything. I picked up the game in kindergarten playing flag & put pads on in third grade so you could say that’s all i’ve know through my life.
What do you see in this Sesser-Valier squad for Friday night?
From what I’ve seen they’ve got some great skill guys that they rotate in the backfield, a smaller offensive line but they stay on blocks and play extremely hard, & a set of solid inside backers that we we hill have to slow down to be able to maintain drives. They’re coming in at 5-1 also so it should be an exciting matchup.
What has been your favorite memory so far this season?
Ending Fairfield’s 37 game BDC win streak by far. The game was so hyped up & back & forth hearing the final buzzer go off was a feeling I couldn’t describe.
Who on Johnston City should I keep an eye out for on Friday night?
There’s a ton of gamers on our team but the first one that came to mind was our transfer QB Heath Neibch.
