This is one of the many reasons why Deep Dish Football is respected in the IHSA. Every Football Player Has A Story To Tell

David Loch York LB Class of 2023 6'2 212

David Loch how is the season going for you so far? It's going good. Our team is 3-0 and we have held opponents to 13 points as a defense. What does football mean to you? Football means so much to me. It's what I look forward to everyday and it's all I think about in the offseason. It's given me so many good memories and taught me so many things. What schools have you been talking to so far? Bucknell, Carnegie Mellon, Dayton, San Diego, Valparaiso, Dartmouth, and Illinois state What do you see in this Downers Grove North squad for Friday? I'm excited to get to play them as they are a good program that has been climbing up the ranks of our conference like we have. They gave us a great game last year and it will be fun to get to play them again. What do you like about playing linebacker? There are not many other positions where you can get in on almost every play. You get into run fits, you get to pass rush, and you can go out into coverage. As well as being able to get in the mix of every play, the mental aspect is amazing too. It takes a lot of reading and reacting, as well as anticipation. Linebackers are the leaders on the defense, and I enjoy taking on that role. What do incoming freshmen need to know about this football program for years to come? They need to know that this is a program going in a positive direction, but they also need to realize how our team started going in this direction. Our program didn’t just change because of a new offensive scheme or because we got a new weight room. Our program changed because Fitz brought in a new culture, and our players bought in and did the work. The incoming freshman need to buy unto the program to continue this upward trend. Programs change when players buy into the culture.
