Joep Engbers Fenwick OL/DL Class of 2023 6'4 320
Joep Engbers how was your offseason? It was good, starting my senior year at a new school isn’t the most ideal but with this new team and the coaching staff I’m pretty confident I’m at the right place to put me in the best position for college. What does football mean to you? It means an escape from the reality of school and other stuff going on in the world. When I’m on the field I just get to focus on the man in front of me and trying to push him against his will. What should college coaches know about you? I love the game of football ever since I got introduced to it. I will work my butt off for the team and am a big agile lineman. But I also am big on education and put school as a priority What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? My willingness to learn, I understand I won’t be the biggest of the strongest, but I am willing to learn from others, if it’s technical stuff or just knowing plays I’m willing to absorb it all What do you see in this OPRF squad for Saturday? I see some talent and good players, but I think we have the upper hand with coaching and the team being as fired up as we are to play them again What goals do you have for yourself this season? Personally, I think my main goal is to better my technique, which I’ve struggled with in the past. Other than that, it’s to have fun and show these colleges who I am.
