So, in a way to better understand the use of Deep Dish Football for Illinois recruits and the whole entire IHSA Football scene. Decided to do player profiles of players who you might not know or you might know, but you should respect them for their roles on their respective teams. This is one of the many reasons why Deep Dish Football is respected in the IHSA. Every Football Player Has A Story To Tell
Jonathan Brown Eisenhower DT 6'4 370 Class of 2023
Jonathan Brown how was your junior season?
Junior year went very well for me I found the nose tackle position. Very fun, but never had the confidence to ask then my head coach told me to get some reps on defense and it was a very successful practice. Because I was really supposed to be a left tackle, but they saw me play and instantly kept me on defense.
What does football mean to you?
I honestly didn’t have a love for football my freshman and sophomore year until I finally started playing the position, I always loved watching and I’ve loved it ever since.
What do you like about playing in the trenches?
The joy, I get from knowing the center is wondering what he is going to do with a 6’4 370-pound player on defense.
What should college coaches know about you?
That I will be as dominant as possible, I will be a physical as possible, I will be as committed as possible, and I love the trenches.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
That I’m a very good run stopper, teams have probably only had a successful run play while I was in twice my whole junior year, and it is even harder to block me because I’m normally much stronger that the entire offensive line.
Who is the funniest player in the Eisenhower locker room?
Sal is the funniest no question about it!!!
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting
