Joaquin Mendez Marian Catholic DE Class Of 2025 6'3 220

Joaquin Mendez how is your season going so far? As a team we’ve had a slow start being 1-2. I feel like our team has a strong bond, but we just need to click at the same time. Personally, I feel the hard work I put in the off-season has been paying off on the field for me but there’s always ways to contribute more. What does football mean to you? I’ve been playing football since I was 8 and the sport itself has always been a teacher of things like mental discipline and hard work. So, it means so much to me to give this sport my all because of the life lessons it’s taught me. It helps me feel a part of something. So yes, it means a lot to me. What should college coaches know about you? College coaches should know that I’m a very coachable player and that I’m an athlete not just a football player. I will give my 110 percent on and off the field.

What do you like about playing in the trenches? I love being the person who’s feared. The one who’s trying to destroy whoever has the ball. I love the aggression and battle that comes with playing in the trenches. What do you think is your strongest trait on the football field? My strongest trait on the football field is my aggression. I’m physical and like to explode off the ball.

What goals do have for yourself rest of the season? My major goal for the rest of the season is to continue to progress physically and mentally both on and off the field.

Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting

But About The Love Of The Game Of IHSA Football
